We've now won 8 or 9 on the bounce away from home which, much as I would like to think will continue, wont. Having said that I will be delighted with a point on Tuesday. Expect Crichlow to return in defence for Rob HuntMassive game for us, this. Really need a win to get back on track after our dismal results away from E10 recently. Swindon are the best away side in the division, but we’re tighter than a nun’s chuff at home; only 5 conceded in 15 home games. Hopefully we’ll crack their egg in the loss column.
Having said that we have history at Orient as our last appearance there was the best performance of our last championship winning campaign. Looking forward to the 11:40 out of Swindon and an afternoon of a few pints and a pie and mash!We've now won 8 or 9 on the bounce away from home which, much as I would like to think will continue, wont.

Odusina has all the attributes to have a solid career but no manager has been able to get the consistency out of him. Maybe Nelse and Lee will.Brilliant cup performances aside we absolutely must get a minimum of 4 points out of these next two homes, Rochdale and Scunny, ideally 6 but I'd settle for 4.
I'd imagine we'll line up the same as we did yesterday, Sterry is back but I thought Regan Ogle was fantastic yesterday and it'd be really harsh to drop him after that, also good to see Timi back in the side, yeah he's prone to drop a bollock out of nowhere but I feel like we need a CB who has sheer pace on his side.

Agree we could do with at least 4 points from these next two games. But I'd always have Sterry in my XI.
If Sterry could stop crosses coming in he would be no where near Hartlepool.Normally I'd agree on Sterry and he'd be the first team on the teamsheet normally but I think you should play players in form, Ogle's come in and done really well, doesn't deserve to lose his place in the starting eleven for me even if the replacement is better, probably will though.
Sterry is a really good one on one defender but when you play 5 at the back teams are gonna target the flanks more. I actually reckon it's Ferguson who leaves the most space out with players getting in the channel between him and the LCB.If Sterry could stop crosses coming in he would be no where near Hartlepool.
I think his strength is down the flanks, And has one hell of a strike on him.
Think he,ll be back in the team though.
And i,m greedy, I want 6 points.
It’s certain defeat for us obviously. We are the simplest team to beat, just score a goal and its game over, whether that is the 10th minute or the 89th, there’s no coming back.
But looking at the other fixtures, I’m fully expecting our brief venture out of the bottom two to come to an end on Tuesday night. Scunthorpe and/or Oldham will get something from their fixtures i think. We could well end the night bottom and it would be exactly where this shower of shit belongs.
Mansfield 3-0 Carlisle
We've mixed our teams up a lot so we won't have too much fatigue, although Nombe being out is going to be a massive miss as we don't have a replacement for himExeter away which will be a tough game. We’ve had a 10 day break whereas Exeter have played 5 games in 15 days, hoping that our extra freshness will give us the edge in a tight game. Our team should be back to close to full strength with Guthrie and McWilliams back in, and hopefully Etete has shrugged off his hamstring issue as he’s been absolutely class for us recently. Would never believe he’s a 19 year old loanee.
Should be a tight affair. Was going to say that we are pretty much at full strength other than the long-term injuries but club has just announced that Telford has Covid so wont be playing.Newport County away for Sutton. The closet Sutton league game I’ve had in the decade or so I’ve been in South Wales.
We’re a little patched up at the moment, Issac Olaofe came off in the first half of yesterday’s cup defeat at Bristol Rovers. We were only able to name 6 subs yesterday (too few for Exeter obviously).
We’re a hot and cold team, either winning or losing. We don’t do draws (unless you count the Pizza Cup game against Stevenage which was decided on penalties), and haven’t had a draw since Scunthorpe away towards the end of August.
We’ve not been playing well for a few weeks really, so it could be a tough night
