:tw:

We was shit in the first half against Port Vale and was staring relegation in the face at half time and shit for the majority of the second half against Coventry yet somehow won.

I see Gillingham play the ball a bit more on the floor under Edinburgh.

The result is largely immaterial to my day on Monday. Obviously I'd prefer a win, but it won't be the end of the world unless we get annihilated.

I arrive at St Pancras at 9.10am, planning on walking to Leyton and having a full English on the way prior to drinking every beer on offer in the Birkbeck Tavern. After the game, back to the pub(s) before getting a curry to round off the day. Any recommendations O's fans?

It can't be as bad as last year.

Looking forward to a decent day out. Take a draw and move on, but we should have enough to win.

Not a must win, but close to it.

No idea who's fit and who isn't, so expect to line up something like:

Henderson - Dagnall
McAnuff - Bartley - Wright - Hedges
Dossena - Baudry - Clarke - Cuthbert
Cisak
Presuming O'Neill and Cox are out, and that Dossena is back. :dk:

Would prefer Taylor in for Wright, but given he scored against Cov I don't think he'll be dropped.

Cody has got to start in front of Norris, who is just not good enough. I'd bring back Nelson in goal also, much better all round game than Morris and commands his defence better while constantly shouting out instructions to them. Pay your best team Justin please.

I wouldn't mind if we lined up in the 4-2-3-1 we did at Crawley, as that worked. However I'd put players where they actually should be playing.

Nelson
Hoyte - Egan - Ehmer - Bell
A. Morris - Hessenthaler
McGlashan - Dack - Loft
McDonald

G.Morris, Legge, Marquis, Norris, Dickenson, Pritchard, Galbraith​

Go to Brick Lane for the curry!

Mooney and Cox both out. With probably another mystery injury to somebody out of the blue, we've had god knows how many this season.

Expecting another shit effort and a loss.

I think Dagnall is still a massive threat, even with your injuries. Rate him very highly.
He'd get into every team in this league on his workrate alone, misses alot of chances but creates a fair few, easily our player of the season and out of contract in the summer. He's 29 though and may favour a move back up north........

Quite impressed with the progress of Bradley Dack I must say.

Bradley has started to really come into his own in the last couple of months or so, but he does still have games where he's anonymous. He was excellent at Crawley, and pretty poor against Fleetwood. He's one of those that tries a bit too hard sometimes, which is when errors start to come in. Still a great prospect though.

A great game for the neutral, but to be honest we should've lost, Gillingham had enough chances to kill the game at 3-1 completely and combined with Edinburghs poor late tactical decisions led to us getting a draw.

Game was end to end by full time, both sides could've won it 4-3, but I was happy with a draw. Mooney, Baudry, Wright, Lowry and Particularly Dossena were all awful for us yet again.

Gillingham ran out of steam by the end, their pressing was very good throughout the game, but Edinburgh left it late to take Legge off and the equaliser always had a chance of happening as their team was getting very leggy.

Having said that we had chances of our own and Morris had a good game in goal for Gillingahm, we were thankful to Cisak for keeping us in the game.

Three games in a row we've been really poor in patches, but combined with Coventry and Port Vale struggling to take their chances and Gillingham running out of steam (having played 2 days earlier as well) we've somehow got 7 points.
