Tricky game I think, Orient hit a bit of good form lately so probably won't be as easy as it might of been a few weeks ago. Having said that, off the field problems for them could play a part!

Can't see many changes for us, Bryan will probably come back in after a couple of games rest and Elliot could start. I'll go for 1-2 city.

0-1 win in front of 1000+ City fans, myself included, which would be an excellent following for a 6 hour Tuesday night journey.

Bryan, Tavernier and JET to come in I reckon.

Never understand why JET isn't the first name on your teamsheet

I tend to agree with all of that, except I can see 1-0 City rather than 2-1

If I was the manager he would be.

But the "real" manager has got us to 8 points clear at the top of the league, so who am I to argue.

I agree with you. Agard hasn't been good enough and I think JET deserves his place in the team along with Wilbra

JET is arguably one of the main reasons we've managed to pull 8 pts clear imo.. He was unplayable for large periods last month in the game he's played.. Id have him in for Agard too.

He's also arguabley one of the reasons we didn't go down last season- without him and his goals up to Christmas last season we would have been dead and buried

Obviously hoping for the win....a little worried that such a tiny squad will get increasingly tired as we enter this latest batch of Tue/Sats. Have we got enough strength in depth to continue to rotate? Bloody hope so!!!

Agree with the sentiments above - I'd have JET in our first XI without a doubt. With the Sat/Tues games though we will and have rotated and he won't be in the team every game. After 2 games out, I'd have him back in for this:

Fielding
Ayling Flint Williams
Little Smith Pack Bryan
Freeman
JET Wilbs

0-2 City (Wilbs, Bryan) Gap to 3rd place to be in double figures by the end of the night

JET, Joe Bryan, Mark Little and James Tavernier dont get dropped. Its called squad rotation, I am expecting JET to have a key role for our biggest month, April. Cotts will be keeping him in top condition for then.

Every game is a big game now, and this is one we should be looking to win, regardless of whether they have won 3 on the bounce.

0-2 City

(Wilbs, Freeman)

We'll probably field the same team, providing Shane Lowrys knock isn't too serious.

Cisak
O'Neill Baudry Lowry Dossena
McAnuff Vincelot Wright Hedges
Mooney Daganall

Subs:
Woods
Cuthbert
Clarke
Sawyer
Bartley
Cox
Simpson​

Dossena's defending is shambolic, as is Jobi McAnuffs tracking back.

After the 0-0 back in August, both sides looked like they could stay in the top 6. Sadly our owner has since proved to be a moron and crushed all the good morale we once had.

We will lose.

34,000 so far...

Fantastic support for a poxy JPT final.

Jeez you don't half love giving yourselves a pat on the back do you TTOCS?

I bet you give yourself a round of applause for putting your pants on the correct way round each day don't you?

;)

On a serious note I think City will probably win.

Cotterill gave Orient far too respect in the 0-0 earlier in the season. Think that was the game we started with Pack, Smith and Elliott in the middle with JET coming on as a 90 + 3 sub.

Have JET and Wilbraham ever started the same league match? Cant remember one.

The others all have straightforward looking home games that they should win so we need to be looking at 3 points here to keep the nice gap. 2-1 win.

I was going to ask if JET and Wilbs had started together, being honest I think we may lack the closing down and energy required upfront which Agard provides if we went with those two. Definitely expect Cotterill to bring in another striker on loan. And if Dossena's defending is as bad as said I expect Little to start to have a go at him, maybe even Freeman target attacking the right wing.

I don't feel confident about this game at all. We are knackered with the Tuesday night/Saturday games for near on a month running. I think Orient will be up for this.

2-0 to the O's

Yep I think I think we are going to struggle tonight ala Colchester. A win at this stage will be massive though!

We have indeed been looking tired, this doesn't surprise me though as they do all work their socks off!

I think a draw would be a good result. We just need to continue to graft and get through this batch of away games and Tues/Saturday games.

1-1.

#BristolCity v Leyton Orient: Fielding; Little, Ayling, Flint, Williams, Bryan; K.Smith, Pack, Freeman; Agard, Wilbraham.

Only change Bryan for Cunningham, which isn't him being dropped, it's just rotation.

I'm feeling a draw in this one, although (correct me if I'm wrong) I think Orient have been really poor at home this season. That could give us an extra advantage, particularly if we could grab an early goal and get the crowd on their backs

Not really surprised, we've been very poor recently, didn't deserve to win Saturday either.

Call it excuses, but our fixture schedule has been very heavy recently, and our squad is paper thin.
