3-0 Loss. Easy win for FGR.

Barrow will beat Oldham. Grimsby will beat Crawley

Bradford 'Massive' City
Leyton Orient at home.

Team is picking itself at the minute. Same again.... Rowe can consider himself to very unfortunate being left out, again.

GK: Sam Hornby

RB: Anthony O’Connor
CB: Paudie O’Connor
CB: Niall Canavan
LB: Connor Wood

DCM: Levi Sutton
DCM: Elliot Watt

RW: Charles Vernam
CAM: Callum Cooke
LW: Gareth Evans

CF: Andy Cook

subs:
Richard O’Donnell
Oliver Crankshaw
Clayton Donaldson
Danny Rowe
Jordan Stevens
Harry Pritchard
Finn Cousins-Dawson

Another win here and we’ll climb to 11th. I noticed Orient are third in the clean sheet table - another tough game, but I fancy us against anyone at the minute.

Stevenage... interesting one, shouldn’t be here of course but making a better fist of it this time around and we were absolutely embarrassing at their place to lose 2-1.

Their form is half decent. We looked more solid yesterday but will expect to be more attacking at Vale Park and look to build on our 5-1 win last time out at home.

Could do with winning this one with Cambridge, Salford and Cheltenham to follow, games that look tough on paper.

Worrall is likely to be out id think, had a swollen
ankle at half time yesterday but came out to score before being subbed which is a blow. Monty appears to be struggling post covid and only appeared late on.

Hopefully sneak a win here but probably a point.

Our trip to Carlisle is hard to call. The Cumbrians played well in Birkenhead but weren't clinical enough up front, so Rovers edged it. Our form is patchy at present, a good win in the Pizza Cup bookmarked by a couple of 'could do better' home games where we only took 1 point. We're definitely missing Otis Khan, who's been a revelation at right-back, while Danny Lloyd, who was ill at the weekend may not be back either. In the absence of other developments, I'd expect us to start with the same line-up as v Oldham.

I know form would suggest we will win at Colchester, problem is we rarely do well there. I suspect they will be looking to avenge the 6-1, and we are without Bowman which will lead to an interesting selection up front. One up with Seymour perhaps, maybe with Randall and Willmott either side.
A repeat of last season's draw might be on the cards.

If we are to stay up these are the sorts of games we simply have to win, home against a mid table team out of form.
We never seem to beat Crawley at Blundell Park though so the pessimist in me thinks we won’t again.

If we play our players in their actual positions within a formation that suits, we've got a chance.

We’ve gone from quite good going forward but terrible at the back to the complete opposite. Very even record against Bradford over the years, albeit we’ve rarely crossed paths. Can see our run of uninspiring draws coming to an end with an uninspiring defeat.

Well, the last time we were down here (2007-2013) we were favourites for the title every, single year.

Thankfully, odds mean diddly-squat.

The two form teams of the division 3 if you throw Bradford in meet on Tuesday
This could go either way.
I expect us to play well and either be level or a goal up at half time.
Come out and be awful for 30 mins we will concede in this time....so we will either be behind or level last 20
Three quality subs will either get us back level or win it

I think he should this week and take next Saturday off. He played against us on a Tuesday in the reverse.

Hoolahan has played a few Tuesday's before and wouldn't be surprised to see him play this one.

Both Tuesday's were at home against Port Vale and Salford so it wouldn't surprise me to see him involved tomorrow night.

Not generally and expecting him to miss Cheltenham.

expecting a really tough game, need everyone on top top form and no defensive mistakes, another clean sheet would be very welcome.

just hoping king mullin can pinch it for us!

Ah the form table for 4 months that everyone looks at. Do your research before spouting.
We changed our keeper at that stage and our system
I can spout what the fuck i want.......last time i looked it was not a dictatorship
Despite lots of people who went to Cambridge being prosecuted for treason

Oldham away for us and Kelly's 1st match in his 2nd role as caretaker manager.
We've not played Oldham away since 2002 in the FA Cup when they scrapped a 1-1 draw against a Barrow side then 3 leagues below them. That's the sort of fight we need tomorrow.
If Southend lose tomorrow a point would be a good return and put us back outside the drop zone.... unless Grimsby win about 22-0

Elaborate on your post then because you're very quick to jump on others if you don't agree.

I've never seen a form table over four months but you crack on lad.

nope we are 10th about right on where we should be......Have a look at my posts from say October onwards i think i have a pretty balanced view.
A little banter pre Christmas with Devon lad and Tranmere lads. Except the one prick who is personal
The season will peter out and where we finish it wont matter in the grand theme of things......we have turned our corner and we will now begin our journey back up the football league.

Confident of a win here as we're going into this in the best form we've been in for a while, having gone back to back weekends unbeaten.

Hoolahan could completely run us ragged tomorrow night. I'm not looking forward to it.
Doubt it, they just hoof the ball over their midfield. Think Hoolahan only got his foot on the ball once or twice vs us.

We are not a long ball team. We played that way against you because we saw a weakness in your team with balls over the top and lack of pace from your defenders. It worked too.

I can only base my opinion on what I've seen. It barely worked too, you were outplayed for most of the match and scored a jammy goal in the first five mins that was nothing to do with this weakness you were trying to expose.

I'm willing to accept you might not be a long ball side, however I've added a note in red to my Cambridge file and I'll be keeping a close eye on this.

You played long ball against us when we had Billy the fish in goal who gifted you the equaliser
We have come on leaps and bounds since then
