We're in much better form than Walsall so I predict we'll win this 1 nil

16 shots to 4, 7 corners to 2.

Will we ever score again? 9/2 for a Fleetwood win, pack in on it. It's just not going in for us at the minute.

Classic counter attack 1-0 away win coming late for the Cod here, cast iron.

Yes! Fantastic. Bradshaw with his 17th goal of the season, 86th minute. Thoroughly deserved. over 23 shots, 8 corners. Still going to need 1 more win to stay up I think, hopefully that will come against Crawley or Crewe.

Never seen a team so reliant on one player to score the goals.

We did it last season too, haha. Hiwula chipped in with a few, but without the 1 centre forward Smith always seems to get scoring, we would have been knackered on many occasions. We would be 10 points better off, easily, if Bradshaw hadn't been predominantly unfit since the JPT win at Preston in January.

Worse than ever now though, last year Westcarr scored 14 of of your 49 league goals, this year Bradshaw has scored 17 of your 37 so far.

Yep, it's a huge problem. We are lucky that we can rely on a very resolute defence (normally) and a negative, but organised defensive midfield. Sadly, that organisation that ensures we can win games 1-0, means we only ever win games 1-0 and quite frequently lose to nil. Smith kind of wants the best of both worlds...IE to win 1-0 every week.

I like Smith which I've said often, if you could get just another 2 decent attacking players to supplement Bradshaw I think you could do something in this league. He had you playing brilliantly with Grigg, Brandy and Paterson a few years back.
