Wrexham v Stockport

Don't say you weren't warned Rocka! You had your chance! :bg:

Hopefully we'll have a right go at Yeovil (Ardley has been criticised in the past for being a tad cautious) given their injury problems, and make it 5 unbeaten. We've got a pretty rubbish record at Huish Park, so I'm not ruling out an uninspiring 1-0 defeat.

Elsewhere, a tasty-looking clash at the Racecourse Ground!

Please don't look at our match, it could get embarrassing.

Are Woking any good, or just lucky so far? Would certainly have Diarra back in our defence right now.

Wouldn’t be unhappy with a draw, but looks like it’s a good time to play Yeovil and we’re starting to hit a bit of form going forward.

Next step is to start keeping some clean sheets. Teams aren’t really creating a lot of chances against us, but we’re still weak from set pieces.

I'm really worried about our game. It could well be revenge for what we did to County at their place last year. 5 of our squad haven't trained since Monday's game and 3 are definitely out injured. When asked about potential new players our manager said today “Right now there isn’t the resource to do anything else. We’ll have to coach and develop our players.”

Who’s out pal? Murphy?

Yep, done his hammy again. Craig Alcock and Charlie Lee both went off injured on Monday with Stuart Nelson and Lee Collins already out. Collins might play on Saturday but he won't be fit, it's just we haven't got anyone else.

Hopeful of getting a win, there's enough in our squad to be able to do it if they play with some tempo and confidence.
Watched you fellas play Barrow and it wasn't great to be honest. If you're still struggling with injuries we won't get a better chance.
Having said that, we concede soft goals are prone to sitting back and are a fragile bunch so a draw or loss wouldn't be a surprise.

You seem to be building up some momentum which is exactly what we can't seem to do. Injuries and lack of fitness is really hampering us, they are the main reasons why we're not playing well but I can't see it changing any time soon.

Enjoy your trip to the proact Daggers fans, no doubt you’ll be heading home with the 3 points... especially looking at these horrific stats of our form over the past 4 seasons...

This is the biggest game of Chipmunx's season so far.

Torquay seem to be where we expected them to be pre season and we've been largely well off it.

Lots of injuries as per for us but hopefully the win on Monday gives us a bit of confidence.

I'd be content with a Brotherly draw but can't see a reason not to go for a win. Not a lot between sides in this league.

Maidenhead attempting to keep up their 100% away win rate at Sutton.
Quite confident as we have a curse on them since joining this league with a 100% win rate.
In fact the one game we were losing to them got abandoned at half time and we won the replayed game.
#bogeyteam.

We've got a lot of cracking young players but are seriously lacking in streetwiseness (if there is such a word). Expect us to start like a house on fire only to get nervous and let errors creep in.

The brothers will be pleased to hear that Johnson says he thinks this is pretty much an EFL game.

How many do you reckon you'll bring?

I'm sure Johnson will know we play 3 at the back so if you've got good wingers you'll cause us problems.

Torquay away in August isn't a bad fixture so that might attract some weekenders. If that's the case around 300 I reckon. 200 minimum.

We had a bad game and lost to Hartlepool. So now we are getting relegated.
Imagine the actual atmosphere if we go a goal down inside 5 minutes. Imagine.

There's some truth amongst the madness though, that Hartlepool game was a disgrace and it cannot be accepted or repeated if Hughes is to stand a chance. If shit like that continues then he's a dead man walking already and I don't think it'd be long before a change comes. We've got 3 games in a row at home now so we could be well back in the mix anyway and this all goes away. That's basically how it is at Wrexham, we go in these sort of 5 game cycles and the manager is only ever a few games away from a crisis.

Depends which Daggers team Taylor puts out, the 5 at the back nonsense which has seen us lose 3 games we’ve played it or the 4-4-2 wingers which has seen us win 3 games. I guess it will be the back 5 and you’ll get a 1-0 win to start your season off.

We also have a habit of looking good in games and then out of nowhere shitting ourselves spectacularly, hopefully the Wrexham game wasn’t a one off and we can duplicate that performance and get something from Saturday.

All I’m saying Wooderson is that if Notts and Pools both lose I know who’s getting the blame...:lac:

what has happened to Diarra by the way - seamed to play in your early games then not even on the bench?
He got injured after a couple of games and apparently is only just back to full fitness. We’ve only conceded 4 goals so far so unsure whether he’ll start on Saturday. Makes us even more a team of giants if he does play.

Don’t have a great record against you and QUIGGERZ will probably score.

Fancy a 1-1?

In truth, I think we'll draw or narrowly edge it.

Imagine tolerating that though.

Barnet was diabolical too.
I don't think anyone is tolerating it. But the reaction from some has been absolutely ridiculous. RP has outdone itself this week.
