Something needs to be changed in our midfield from the Grimsby game. Stanley did ok, but Power and Nolan were poor, think Sparrow will be brought back in. Also if Hearn isn't fit for a start, I'd imagine Simmons will get a start over Robinson. Fingers crossed also Nat Brown isn't in the XI, feel quite sorry for Bush who has been in and out the side without doing a lot wrong.

Anyway I'm going for a narrow 2-1 defeat, Muldoon getting the goal.

Is this the first BT Sport game of the season?

Be delighted with a draw, sounds like Cheltenham are playing well.

Yes it is. Should be a good game too.

We host Gainsbrough later. The closest thing to a local derby we have. Its 15 games now since we last won. Cant see it changing today. We have nothing up front other than bloody Joe the donkey Ironside.

Another defeat incoming..

It will be an absolute miracle if we get a result today. Jones, Ricketts and Yakubu all injured on Saturday leaves us with about 13 players including two goalkeepers. Add that to the fact we've only beaten Welling once in our last ten games.

Once again I'd be happy with a point today. Having Liam Hearn back in the squad would be handy, but I won't get my hopes up.

It was heavy before, but it's dry now. It's pretty grey without being a massive concern. The pitch will be fine and the match will be 100% on (Famous last words).

Dreading this. Just seen your form. Would take a scruffy 1-0 now. God help us if we go on TV on the back of 3 straight defeats, as we nearly always lose on TV.

You just know if Hearn plays and gets the kind of chance numbnuts Nolan had on Saturday he scores, but as his career is over he wont.
Power and Nolan are hopeless just shows how little cash we have that these two get a new contract....

Got a feeling we'll suffer our first defeat tonight.

With McLennan's red from Saturday not being overturned we now have no recognised left back. I think we have a little weakness in defence and having seen Dominic Vose's run for his goal on Saturday, that is exactly where we look vulnerable.

Maybe I'm just being pessimistic due to the fact we are unbeaten and I know we can't keep it up forever.

We've had a tough start but we have to get something at Braintree today, which is never easy. I just hope their pitch can cope with all this rain - its not good at the best of times!

Thoroughly expecting mass changes today with Hurst citing 'tiredness'

Even at this early stage It's a must win for us, the fans are already starting to revoke after 2 shocking performances, the anger after Saturday's defeat will only get worse today without a must win.

Should be another win today, but we can't go into this game thinking that's the case, IF our forwards are on form it could be a 5-0 game but we shall see!

If Marcus Holness starts, I think everyone in the home ends will pray for torrential rain. But yeah, weather's fine atm.

In Gateshead, we're playing another team that currently occupy a top 6 place. Draws seem to be the order of the day against them since we've been down here (6 in 8, maybe?).

What's up with Hearn?

I see Rheady is bagging a few for you, What do you think of him?

No idea, we've not been fed any information from the club. He's facing another fitness test before the game today having failed one on Saturday, and according to our local journo he's got strapping on his knee/thigh. Sadly it was always going to be a matter of when he got injured, not if.

I really like Rhead. He's an absolute nuisance and must be horrid to play against, but he suits our style of play. He wins the vast majority of his headers and he's actually scoring for us, which is a nice bonus. He's the type of player you love when he's playing for you but hate when he's on the opposing side.

Yeah, He became abit of a cult hero here in our Conference days, Never scored many goals but he was a big part of a lot of Greeny's goals the year we won it. Especially his flick on for the 92nd minute winner at Hereford. Glad he's doing well. Played 6 a side against him in the Summer we went up and remember running into him but the rest of that day is a blur.

Tweaked hammy currently doing a fitness test, it's strapped along with his knee, I'd rather wait til he's ok and risk will its playing up as he's bound to get niggles after so much time out injured.
Rhead has been far better than I thought he would 5 in 6 is amazing, can't run but who cares that's not his game but a very cool customer and winds up opposition players and fans alike.

If we're going to do anything this season we need Rhead and Hearn on the pitch together. As Saturday showed, without Hearn we have very little going forward.

I'd suggest that 48 hours is going to make naff all difference to a dodgy hamstring.

Barrow with an unchanged side for the game at Halifax - that's a first....

Looking at the odds on William Hill, some of them seem insane. Boreham Wood 4/1 to win at Dover? Macclesfield 7/1 to win at Grimsby?! What?!

Having seen both Dover and Boreham Wood this season, I make Boreham Wood the better team. Yeah, Grimsby will probably beat Macclesfield, but 7/1? Come on!

Tenner on Boreham Wood, fiver on Macclesfield. Let's see...

See Guthrie isn't starting for FGR, what's the news on that? Injured? Dropped for Parkin? Rested?

Also on my 'why have they made that decision' list, Kidderminster dropping Singh for Styche. Why?

Hurst has changed our whole midfield bar Robinson, whilst other sides have no need for wholesale changes Hurst lives and dies by them.

I hope for his sake they work out.
