Usually after a result and performance like last night you'd see 3 or 4 changes to the side. We can't do that because of the state of the squad, so the only change that doesn't make us even weaker will be Canavan back in at centre half.

As for the game, I can't see any of our lot getting near Jack Payne who will undoubtedly run the show.

Swindon win.

I expect nothing other than a hammering, Canavan starting and Songo’o back in midfield is the only chance of limiting the score line.

Colchester at home, if we can win this one its been a decent week despite a poor performance Tuesday.

We've started to hit form at home winning 4 on the spin and are the big favourites but will need to be better than last night to get a win in this one.

Looks like Colchester don't score much but are fairly decent defensively so assume they will sit in and look to hit us on the break, hopefully Proctor is back as we missed his presence although we may go 4-3-3 if we struggle to break them down.

2-0 Wilson and Politic

Scunthorpe away. I'll be missing again but after two home losses an away win would be very handy.

Good news is Joel Lynch came off the bench last night. Bad news is Nadersan will be suspended. His pace away from home is a potent weapon where teams are more likely to come at you.

I know that Scunthorpe fans are down on their team at the moment but you always seem capable of pulling away from the drop zone. I'm hoping we can put in a decent performance but much more importantly get a decent win.

2 wins in the last 32 and last night displayed exactly why. You won't have any trouble against us.

We will probably just fall behind anyway but if we do take the lead you will inevitably get back into it when our manager puts everyone behind the ball and costs us 2 points again.

Don't worry Don.

I'm sure that Scunny Patheticist will be "up for the fight" as usual.

Probably be down at his local branch of Pets At Home...kicking a few puppies!

Gas away should be a tidy day out over the bridge. First game with Rowberry in charge so expecting great things.

In our game against them they seemed to be spoilers. The 1st half will probably be dull.

On paper and given our recent good showings we should be looking at 3 points. However our home form is a huge problem and we've dropped points against Colchester, Carlisle and Rochdale to date and fluked a win against Mansfield.

Finding it very hard to predict how we're going to do at home, away we seem to have found the perfect formula.

I'll be making the 40 minute journey from west Cumbria to hopefully see Oldham get 3 points.
I am expecting nothing so anything will be a bonus....
AL OUT !!!!

Got my vaccine passport yesterday. Hadn’t bothered up till now but thought I’d get hold of one before any ‘Plan B’ kicks in.

Heavy loss against Swindon. Genuinely can't see where the next win is coming from. Swindon, Forest Green, Port Vale, Northampton and Tranmere are our next five games. Could easily lose every single one.

Not sure of your use of the word "could"

I’ve put myself through most of the games this season but giving this one a miss. Need a weeks break from the torture. Hope you bring back the 3 points in what’s looking like a relegation 6-pointer already!

We're due a win against this mob, 3 defeats and a draw in our non league days, genuinely hope Luke Armstrong gets a good reception pre match but then treat like any other opposition player, he was the catalyst for our promotion last year and we wouldn't be here without him.

I wouldn't be too upset with a point but I'm going for a battling 2-1 win.

Not really sure why I'm bothering to go again, winless in 5 and putting out some fairly turgid stuff right now, but then again you simply can't miss the stunning sights on the walk from Stevenage station to the Lamex...
If we can't beat an off-form Stevenage then I'm resigned to mid-table all season, can't really put a finger on precisely what's wrong with us, but something isn't right at all.
16th in the form table after a very normal run of fixtures is especially poor.

You likely to bring many? We’re hoping to crack 10,000 Saturday.

For our large home crowds the atmosphere comes across as being pretty librarytastic. I do think our fans do have the attitude of 'ok come and entertain us and we'll react' which is why a lot of home games do seem to have a pre-season feel to them.

think the division's biggest score might change that. I'm hoping you have an off day and we can limit you to 3.
