Players seem motivated by yesterday judging by the comments and as said we’ve generally bounced back we’ll from defeat so hopefully that and the abject effort in the reverse and stick we took will see us put in a huge performance.Closest we have to a derby in this division against Walsall and the DC element has a very different dynamic than what it was between us and Bristol Rovers. They did a job on us last time out but we were without our two best strikers for most of the game (Proctor came on but then had a hernia injury in that same game) and no doubt with how visibly angry DC was after that game our players will be eager to prove a point to them. Away end been sold out for a while and there will be some like me with tickets for the home ends so will just have to keep my trap shut during the game.
Seems in terms of Walsall things are not quite right at that club off the field but they have a good manager in Flynn. Whether their owner lets him be successful there is another matter. Seems Rodney hasn't exactly set the world on fire since going there, something has been off with him all season and Wilkinson I believe has an ACL injury. Famous last words but I think we take out a of frustration on them on Saturday and get back on track.
Hopefully Pett is back but could possibly get away with an attacking midfielder in CDM more against Walsall than you could Rovers, especially as you’d hope we are in the ascendency more in this one.
Things change quickly when it’s this tight so we could be out the top 3 or on the verge of promotion come 5pm Saturday, let’s hope it’s the latter to set up a huge opportunity on Bank Holiday Monday at home.
