Don't think we have any new injuries, just the usual spine of our team. :lol:

We haven't kept a clean sheet this season and we don't generally score more than one, so stay in the game as long as possible!

Doesn't sound like either side wanted this played tonight off the back of a Tuesday night game last week but the EFL had other ideas.

We are down to bare bones with injuries and suspensions. I can see this being a 2-0 defeat.

But you are playing us, no Taylor, Okenhibirie or John, Close carrying an injury, not sure if Rowe will be fit either, we haven’t had a fully fit squad to pick from at all this season

It could be anything tonight then! We've just had to sign a keeper on emergancy loan and apparently starting tonight.

Can't see anything other than a Wigan win. Bar the Oxford game, we have kept it tight and kept in all games as long as possible, but it has to be a home win tonight.

Close and Rowe both added to the injured list plus another new formation of 3-5-2

Absolutely shocking defending leading to an own goal, Tracey best player for Cambridge giving Owolu nightmares. Galbraith for us is pure class.

That will do but not happy how much we are sitting off. If we can get on the ball more I fancy us to get another.

Wow! Just a shame we couldnt hold on for another minute for a first clean sheet of the season. Very much unexpected result!

Excellent result, especially with losing top scorer Scully before the game (and probably the weekend).

A point a piece a fair result. For all Doncaster’s possession they never broke us down. We could have stolen it at the end when Knibbs hit the bar and Ironside somehow missed the rebound.

Considering we made 6 changes due to injury and suspensions it’s not a bad point.

Yes you could have won it at the end but that’s 2 points we threw away we had plenty of opportunities but squandered them

Unexpected? You lot seen our record on Tuesday this season! :mad:

Honeymoon period properly over now for us, three home losses already and all of them deserved. Injuries starting to rack up (plus a suspension) and any side that comes to the DW organised, hardworking and happy to sit back for large periods are causing us serious problems. Away from home, teams have to come at you and we take advantage of all the extra space with our quality attacking midfield. Can't do that at home.

Would have thought it’s going to be a comfortable Wigan win.

Ahah the old reverse psychology trick, I like it….. ;)

We haven't won on a Tuesday either in the league.
We have a similar problem at home teams play 3-5-2 against us and we struggle to break them down , if they press high we struggle even more, expecting Shrewsbury to do that Saturday.

The only clear cut chance you had to win it was the volley over which come from a stupid mistake by us. You never opened us up.

If we didn’t have a papa johns team on the pitch I would have been disappointed with the point.

Skip to 2:35 and you can see as obvious a handball goal as you're likely to see that the ref and linesman (lineswoman?) were initially happy to give. :lol:

So Hiwula didn’t get through for a one on one then? In respect to not opening you up it was more to do with either a delayed pass causing our player to be offside or a poor pass. It’s where our problems lie sloppy passing or taking the extra unnecessary touch. I’m in no way saying we ripped you apart but we did have enough chances if we were more clinical.

Doncaster goal looks a lot worse on video than it did at the time, what the hell was Holy thinking?

Fair result, and can see why both teams are disappointed, we didn't (not for the first time) maximise the opportunity when we were on top early on and should have won it in added time when Ironside somehow managed to miss the ball completely from half a yard, but Donny had us on the back foot last 10 mins of the first half and for most of the second.

Would have taken a point before the game, and definitely once we knew the team, but a little disappointing as feel like the game was there to be won, not sure we back our ability enough. Tracey substitution was strange at the time and even more so in hindsight given how a poorly-performing Brophy got even worse after that although Knibbs did alright when he came on and was unlucky not to score. Okedina a big improvement on Masterson and should retain the spot there.

Another draw and another missed opportunity against a side that look like they're going to be down there with us at the back end of the season. Got to be more ruthless on Saturday.

Holy is a very poor GK. we’ve seem so decent Keepers at town and he ranks close to the bottom. Look back at some of the goals we conceded last year, don’t think I’ve seen him actually make a save. He’s just tall and a decent bloke
