What? No one's made a thread for this yet? Come on City fans... get your act together!

Important to bounce back here. Won't be an easy game, although Donny themselves had a poor result on Saturday, but I reckon we'll nick a tight game, 1-2 Smith and Agard

A poor first half on Saturday and we were punished for it, whereas on another day we might have got away with it. They needed to step it up second half, and did, so hopefully a continuation of that second half tomorrow.

No knee jerk reactions please Cotts, stick with what has got us to the top of the league.

2-1 City.

Hopefully they've learnt their lesson after Saturdays first half capitulation and come out all guns blazing.

Tough game. A point wouldnt be terrible as long as we follow it up by beating Rochdale at home. I fear that if we lose this one, people will start to panic.

I didn't think we'd win this before Saturday's first half debacle. We could certainly do with a win to regain some momentum but a draw is probably likely. I'd like to see Pack replace Elliott and maybe other changes are needed to a tiring squad, without changing the formation.

I still don't know why we have scheduled all these games in a row? At least one midweek off would have been beneficial.

I think the FL rule is the games must be played at the earliest available date.

Not sure if thats true, Swindon have a game rescheduled for a tuesday in April I think when they have plenty of time between them they could play it.

To be honest I prefer it this way. Get the games out the way and hopefully points on the board rather than being under pressure to catch up. Having the riff raff breathing down our necks only because theyve played more games than us has gotten tiresome. ;)

The Swindon v Walsall game isn't due to be played until late March anyway as it falls on JPT Final weekend so they have the choice of it being played later, god knows why you agreed to have the Yeovil game on the 10th of next month?

Still debating whether to go to this, got a lot of work to do and running low on money while waiting on £60 of fuel money from the weekend to be reimbursed vs watching City game, may be a last minute decision tomorrow.

Im going to this, ridiculously.

Was at Colchester and as bad as it was, no wholesale changes needed. Tavernier is poor and should be dropped for the less worse Little. And Id have Pack in for Elliott who had a shocker on Saturday. (Never though Id advocate a Pack start..)

Would take a point.

Where's Saville then? Surely he would be the replacement?

Good question. Forgot about him if Im honest, Seems to have slipped out of the picture after that one awful first half. (Fleetwood home maybe?)

1-1 draw, repeat of FA cup tie.

Eliott hopefully dropped with Pack deservedly back in the starting XI

If Donny defend as they did Saturday then Bristol City will have a field day!

These are the types of games which we need to get results in if we are going to get promoted. Doncaster are a good side on their day so this will be tough. Will definitely take a point with a home match on Saturday but a win here would be absolutely massive IMO. March fixtures look favourable so two wins before the end of Feb would be fantastic.

The return of Agard and Wilbraham up front.

Hope Pack shows a classy performance to make a stake for a permanent space in the side.

Flint vs Boom Boom McCombe, should be interesting.

Slipped under the keeper.

Perfect start.
