Exciting huh?

The return of Kee. He's bound to score after his and Murray's bust up last season. Hopefully someone offers him a can as he steps off the team coach and he ends up going into town.

I hope Hunt is back and we can shift Rose back into midfield. Go back to basics!

Accy will definitely score (probably 2) so our forwards need to perform if we are to get anything from this. Unfortunately this has not been the case this season. 2-1 Accy.

We're suddenly under a bit of pressure; mostly from our own home support, which is fair enough because as a team we are failing at Field Mill. 3 wins out of 12 is bottom 6 form.

Problem being is that we are set up to be tight defensively and that can have an adverse effect on the product at the other end of the pitch. It's becoming a headache for Murray. Does he alter the tried and tested defensive model and risk losing to a good attacking Accrington side?

I don't think he will. He'll be cautious and we'll either lose by the odd goal or draw in a low scorer; as seems to be the norm now days.

We never seem to do well against Accy either, I'm sure every side we have some sort of vodoo against in this league. They are a good side and as Muzza reminds us they aren't "little old Accrington" anymore so it will be a tough game.

I genuinely don't know how we will lineup, we definitely won't go 2 up top again and I really hope Hunt is back. Could be a turning point for us or could stave off play off hopes for a while. If we're going to make it we are going to start winning more at home and be capable of beating a decent side, but another draw/loss may see a gap emerging.

I never knew Kee had a bust up with Murray - I don't think he's the only manager that Billy has fallen out with... However he's having a decent season I just hope he brings his shooting boots on sat. We played well overall against Northampton on Monday but just couldn't score - apparently we had 15 shots!
I seem to remember Adam Murray being sent off against us last year - does he still play now and again?
Looking forward to this fixture - I know we have done well at Field Mill previously but this will be a hard one - I'll take a 2-2 draw to keep us in touch with the top 7...

Not anymore. He is registered but hasn't played since he bough himself on for the last 5 v Northampton back in Feb. Kee and Muzza were boyfriends for abit but it all went south at Sarfend away and Kee never featured after that and then we sent him back to Scunthorpe where he was released days later.

Maybe muzza might go a little more attacking and show some ambition.

After the season we've had to date it's daft Adams under a bit of pressure but it's pressure he has piled on by his dull, dismal, uninspiring home tactics.

Hopefully he'll realise that if we show a bit more attacking prowess without being daft about it, and letting other teams worry about us instead of the other way round we can get somewhere.

If it's a basic flat back 5 with green so isolated on his own again it will be majorly annoying.

Excited by the return of hunt

I seem to remember him questioning Kees commitment or fitness or some description but nothing more

Green took a knock.

On a serious note what the fuck were the match sponsors sniffing today? Adam Chapman man of the match!? He would have made Tyrone Thompson good today.

We are simply not allowed to beat Accrington Stanley, it's in the UN charter.

I know, therefore everyone thought, oh it'll be great to see yousiff have half an hour at these, the reaction of all when he sent craig fucking westcarr on was what you'd expect, stunned silence with a few boos, a forward line, led by westcarr? I meant really? What planet is he on? Murray is starting to lose the plot a bit, and it's got to be resolved soon.

Murray sounded pissed with the players as he should, poor performance with our our top striker an uncertainty for the foreseeable future. Midtable here we come.

Stanley are a good side and worthy of their position in the table; playing some lovely football.

We've lost our way, look to be struggling for ideas and down on confidence. Very disappointing once again. The home form really is a mess.

As I said on stagsnet, we are a carbon copy of how we were under Cox in his first season, blistering start which belied a limited side (though this team certainly does have a lot more ability) followed by the manager being found out, managers countering him with tactics which he has no answer to, suffering from the same problems game in game out and limited attacking options.

His insistence on playing 451 (even when pretending he isn't) at home is frankly infuriating given we've won 3 in 14 home games this season, and he won't change it even though it clearly doesn't work.

Had someone offered me 12th at halfway and so far clear of the relegation zone I'd have snapped your hand off in hindsight, but to move forward he needs to sort things out this month, and get some new ideas, sharpish!
