Massively looking forward to this, we gotta make sure we take the momentum of the last two games into this and try and snatch a point.

However, gonna be very difficult to nullify Garner, Gallagher, Johnson etc.

Wouldn't fancy playing Scunny in their recent form, but can see a narrow PNE win here.

1-0 Garner

Tough game, Scunny are a much changed side from the one we beat 4-0.

Johnstone and Johnson will come back in most likely and Beckford and Hugill played in a bounce game the other day, probably too soon for them though. I think Robinson will remain on the bench as Kevin Davies is playing really well at the moment and I think Garner enjoys playing alongside him.

Not sure on this three at the back for a home league game but i'd try and keep the side as settled as possible at the moment.

I'd tend to look at Davies for away games now. A lot of teams are going to come to Deepdale and be hard to break down, we can't afford a body up top who offers zero goal threat. Plus, and it's not necessarily his fault, but his absence is far more likely to see the ball being played on the floor and bring out the best in the likes of Gally, Johnson and Kilkenny.

Wouldn't be suprised to see us revert back to the '4-3-3' we used before we lost Garner & Robinson in the next few weeks when everyone is fit.

We've gone from fuck all up front over Christmas/ January to having; Garner, Beckford, Robinson, Davies, Ebanks-Blake, Hugill & Little available.

Think Hugill bagged two in the bounce game the other day, I really liked the look of him before he went for his operation.

I'll go 2-1 PNE, we seem to score in most games but I think we will struggle against a strong side like PNE.

we were fucking garbage first half but improved in the second, it was still lackluster and dull though.

No idea who gave Robinson MotM, he was terrible from start to finish. Garner was quiet, Johnson and Humphrey were decent in the 2nd half after poor first half performances. Gallagher was probably our best player again and his great run resulted in our first goal. Bailey Wright looked classy at the back but he was marking nobody for the most part.

Some good results above us but we need to capitalise with a win on Tuesday

i think you're being a bit harsh on Robinson, SF. He was causing them loads of problems and he beat the fullback loads.
Frustrating as fuck with his pointless, fancy flicks and getting caught offside every 5 minutes.

Before we scored he was about to get hauled off for Reid. He was involved for the goals though so fair play.

He was offside a lot but several of them were because the pass was delayed too long. The shit flicks were irritating though, I grant you.

Mark Robins:

"There's a few black eyes in the dressing room, and that's not because I've thrown any punches after the game, that's because the striker has put himself about. "
Even when he's not at his best, Garner is such a c*** to play against, love him!
