Beat me to it. An absolute 6 pointer this. I'm not yet convinced Jackson is an improvement on Manning so we shall see. We squeaked a win against you for his first match but since then it's been pretty dire for us.Into must win territory with this six pointer. Have a horrible feeling the promising new signings will go backwards longer Burchnall has to coach them but maybe I'm too negative.
You shouldnt have a problem our defence was poor before, but now most of them have either left or are injured. Only one fit CB at the moment. Definitely a good time to play usI don’t have anything against the Gas as a club, but would love to get yet another begrudging post-game barbed swipe out of the twat Barton if we get the win here like we did at home on Boxing Day.
These are the kind of games (against those directly around us) we need to be taking points from if we’re going to have any hope of the playoffs this season.
Not to say we will, mind, but we have a mostly fit squad, we’re doing ok, so no excuses.
I feel the same. If we can't beat you and get a bit of positivity at the club I can see it spiraling down the plughole for us. I really thought a new head coach would mean Winkleman loosing the purse strings to keep him happy but it doesn't seem to be happening.We really cannot afford to lose again to MK, if we do it hammers the first nail into our relegation coffin I reckon as I’m struggling to see where enough wins are coming from if we can’t get anything from games like that, having already lost to Burton twice and at home to Morecambe.
Not sure we should be classified as a "tough" fixture at the moment. We are currently the footballing equivalent of a clown car.2 tough consecutive weekend matches, against Sheffield Wednesday and they dont come any harder. Hard to see us getting anything from these, more chance the F A Cup purely on the basis that upsets do happen in this most wonderful of competitioms. Awkward period for Fleetwood, a loss last Saturday, could be another one this Saturday and then Pompey next Tuesday,. Its very tight at the lower end of the table, a few wins and you shoot up ( great credit to Morecambe for their up turn ) A few losses and you are back among the brown stuff
The best we can hope for is a draw, my glass is always half full so 1-1
Don’t worry. You will beat us. We are going down like the Hindenburg.Need to be beating Burton and getting some wins on the board at home now.
A few injuries in the squad, not many options on the bench at the minute either. Desperately in need of a midfielder or two through the door to save us from having to witness the current combinations on offer.
Nice to see a bit of confidence shown on here about an upcoming game for once!Cambridge at home for us.
After watching us against them on Boxing Day (even though we lost), Cambridge were terrible and I’ll be disappointed with anything other than a home win. I’ll be surprised if they stay up after reading about their injury problems and small budget which is a shame as I’ve always seen Cambridge as a likeable club so I hope they can find away to keep above the bottom four.
Us on the other hand, after three consecutive defeats, we stopped the rot with a convincing 4-0 win away at Burton last weekend. The new lad Phillips seems to have given us more energy in the final third and was big threat which we’ve lacked at times from midfield. Still riddled with injuries ourselves but our starting 11 should have enough this Saturday, I’ve got a good feeling for this one.
Salop 3-0 Cambridge
The thing about being a lower league team is that it's not like a Man City where you turn up every week expecting a win. Even if we're in good form and playing a team bottom of the league, I'm never confident. Been stung far too many times. I generally go into games fearing the worst and then anything better than that is a bonus.Nice to see a bit of confidence shown on here about an upcoming game for once!
