Of all the games to be moved for TV, pissed off that it's this one.

No Palmer against his parent club - which is a real shame - so time for Carl Winchester to step up to the plate.

For some reason though, I fancy us to get something from this. Our away from (other than the abomination of a performance at Sheff Utd (which I put down to focusing on the following games after that)) is genuinely been good, and we tend to be better against the better sides. None of Wigan, Walsall or Gillingham have beaten us this season.

Have a feeling we may go with a 3-5-2 here....

Coleman

Wilson -- Dieng -- Gerrard

Dummigan -- Jones -- Kelly -- Winchester -- Holmes-Dennis

Holloway -- Main
Prediction: Brewers 1-1 Latics

I fancy Latics to win. Young Holloway is a handful and Main always puts a shift in. Scrappy 0-1.

Sorry. Can't see it. We are good at home.
2-1 us but a very close game.
But what do we know - a prediction is just that. A prediction
Shame it's on tv as it will dent the gate down to sub 4K

This is on telly!? Granted my experience of these sides is limited to 4 games but I wouldn't say either team play in an entertaining way...

Genuinely think Oldham looked better when we have played them than Burton, however that means nowt as Burton are top and Oldham look set for a drop.

Reckon Oldham will get a point. 1-1.

Burton are half as clinical in this as last week they'll beat Oldham.

This Holloway lad we have up top has to be one of the best players I've ever seen at holding the ball (up for such a young lad).

I'd say the only reason he's not playing higher up is the lack of goals - he could have bagged 5 against you last week rather than 2.

Surprised to see everyone backing us. Word must be getting out we are much better than our league position suggests under shez.

However I think we will lose here. Missing palmer will cost us dearly. He is our key player and without him we will struggle.

Missing tiele on the other hand will prob be an advantage. I've had a word with the coach driver and he assures me he will do everything he can to leave him in burton before the journey back north

If you do leave him in Burton make sure it is on the a38 going north. Anywhere but at the Pirelli. He is useless

We thought you must have the best squad ever at this level with players like palmer not getting a game. He's a gem

Then you bring us back down to earth with tiele. How is he even a football player?

Hasselbank bought him over. Think Jimmy had a bad day as he is possibly the worst striker we have ever had.

Anyone else wake up looking forward to Gillette Soccer Saturday etc, then realise its international weekend and Burton v Oldham are on Sky?

Oldham giving it a right go, bless 'em, but serious deficit of confidence and quality there.

Burton unimpressive again.

Oldham have edged it. Have to wonder how Burton are top, the football is shocking! A good defence goes a long way in this league though.

Surely that was a red for Flanagan?

Burton have been terrible. Worst of the sides I've seen over the Easter break so far.

I can't believe how low the standard of this game is.

I don't remember a single moment of good play.

Bad game this. Shows how much we miss Palmer. Also makes me understand why Burton don't play him.

Burton will still end up winning this....

True.
Don't think I'm being arsey like - would love to see you win the league. Just think the two games we've played you've been extremely average - especially today.
You should have beat us. We where garbage. You played well. I see that as a point gained from us in reality.

Worst display of the season. I don't know why we persisted so long with chaudrey. We looked toothless.
Hope it's a blip.
As I've said since Xmas, Wigan to win the league at a canter

Dreadful pap. 2 League 1 games in 2 days and 1 half decent team.

Sums this league up - it's fucking dire
