We've got to get straight back on the horse at the weekend. No idea what Barrow are like. If they enjoy pumping high balls into our box and have a team of giants then we might struggle. I seem to recall them being a bit of an up and under team last season, but with cooper in charge it might be death by passing which will suit us.
We've played really well in patches and then inexplicably dropped off and let teams back in. If we put together a full 90 minutes we're going to give someone a pasting because at times we've looked far superior. Ability wise we were streets ahead of Sutton yesterday but we just couldn't cope with their tactics. Hopefully it was one of those days but we've conceded a few goals recently.
I'll go for a 1-0. Tight game where we nick it.
If we manage put 2 passes together and manage a couple of shots at goal then it's a better performance than what we did against barrow last season at home. Hopefully we will be tighter at the back and nick it 1 nil or 2 1. We had alot out injured against these last season but not sure who is out apart from legge.
Yeah I mean Tranmere happened... we recovered a few games later smashing Bolton but then Walsall happened, and then injuries decimated us over Xmas so was a few factors involved plus whatever went on off the field and the McKirdy rumours, Sinclair whatever who knows!The one thing am not in the least bit concerned about is our players having the confidence knocked out of them after losing late at Sutton. If that was a problem for this group of players they wouldn’t have staged the comeback against Orient the week before the way that they did. We do however need to be far more clinical killing teams off when we have the ascendancy.
Barrow have a decent enough team and another with a good manager at this level so will be a big challenge on that score but at home I’m expecting us to be well up for it.
We're gonna have to win away at some point!
The A217 Derby! Or not as the case may be.
I still haven't forgiven Sutton for nicking John Mackie of us, which shows how old I am, but they have a couple of ex Reds in their line up and the manager was here for a bit too so I'm sure there'll be a welcome on Pease Pottage Hill.
Sutton had a great result v Port Vale and we have only lost 1 in 6 so two teams who should be ready to play.
I'm going for a 3-1 win for us but with a late breakaway goal to seal it after Sutton bombard us for the last ten minutes trying to equalise.
Not at Crawley, no.Other than the FA Cup tie in 95/96 has there have ever been a competitive game between Sutton and Crawley? It’s strange that two traditional non-league clubs based relatively near to each other have rarely played each other.
We’re on a great run of form, confidence is high. I wouldn’t be surprised if we do slip up here.
It will probably be next Tuesday mate. We are usually quite obliging at allowing clubs to end bad runs like that
The classic one for us was back in the 90's. 3 months into the season, our visitors one particular day, Swansea, not only hadn't won away they hadn't actually scored a goal on their travels..Cue for them to rock up at Valley Parade and beat us 6-4 in an incredible game
Good to see you back in the Football League too. Always enjoyed my visits to Victoria Park. Good club and supporters
