Wimbledon up next

Permalink  
 

Apart from Robertson whose injury appears to be dragging on longer than anticipated, there's a fully fit squad to choose from but we're unlikely to see Tilt or Jones who have only just returned to training and are therefore not match fit. 

Can't see too many changes from the Lincoln starting line-up although I suspect Mattock will return to LB if PW thinks he's sufficiently recovered from his back issues.

Wimbledon are only one place and 6 points above the relegation zone so they'll be desperate for something. However, they concede an average of 1.5 goals per game so I'm sure both Lapado and Vassell will be itching to start. I think I'd go with Vassell.

Let's see if we can keep this thread on an even keel.

There shouldn't be any need to freshen it up as we have had a clear week and a day.

There are three places up for discussion as far as I can see.

Left back - I might be tempted to leave Wiles there even if Mattock is fit. Its a home game and you'd like to think we will spend more time attacking than defending. Wiles isn't a natural full back but he is better going forward than any of the others.

Left midfield - Adelakun showed flashes of brilliance at Lincoln and he has threatened to score gaols, which I think he has in him. He has done enough to keep his place as far as I am concerned.

Up front, Vassell or Ladapo. I don't mind which of them starts but I have a gut feeling that given his chance it might be a day for Freddie.

The weather forecast is shocking and anything can happen, but if we do our job right we should have enough to get the points.

Not starting two threads same. Haks Warney calls our no. 14. I'm not a fan but he'll start. Can only see Mattock only change. Want to see Lindsay & Koroma 1st changes. I'm thinking following 2 away games might need Lindsay especially.

I'm still of the opinion that wiles should be played in his central midfield role or on the bench, With hinds leaving it has reduced the cover options with mattock carrying a back injury so why not try clark against wimbledon. Im a great believer in round pegs round holes.

 ... agree... but I'd play Mattock on basis he owes us some good games and we pay him each week and he only plays when he's 'fit' (like the bloke at work who seems to have a 'cold or bad stomach' every 5th week...)

My way of thinking. Warney in the tizer today says Koroma he's rusty. He needs 1st team games to get up to this level match sharp. We are at home against the 4th from bottom side in this league why not start him? I'd like two natural full backs in Olosunde & Mattock. I don't like bodging up.

Wouldn't really change the team at all.

When we have other teams threatening our position, when we are facing a team who are tottering over the relegation places, gaining points is important to both teams. Dont expect a push over. It would be foolish to start a new guy who is not match fit and why change a winning formula for the sake of it. If everyone is match fit, start with the team who have done the business thus far.

I think wimbledon will sit back and let us attack them, and try and catch us on the break.

It will take time and maybe until 60 mins before we break their defence

Both Peterborough and Sunderland have tricky away fixtures today. Other promotion contenders have relatively easy games on paper. However, Dennis might have a bigger impact on today's games than any form guide. Wouldn't be surprised if some games are called off - Fleetwood v Peterborough being a prime candidate.

I don't see why he would consider any changes to the winning formula is unless injury forces his hand. I like the 3 strikers over 90 minutes approach and we have a good midfield balance. Crooks has been a giant in there and Ogbene is terrifying to defences. I can see why people are talking about Lynsey because he did look the part in the few games when he got his chance - however - it would be unfair to bench one of the others because they have been solid.

Hard one to take. We were by far the most threatening side but they had a couple of good opportunities to nick it. Difficult to be critical on such a foul day. Ref didn't cover himself in glory and I'm not sure about the penalty. But on balance of play it seemed harsh. Still, nothing lost, still top of the league and all to play for on Tuesday. Onwards and upwards!!

Last week it went for us this week it didn't. Conditions were bad but couldn't hide fact our wide man weren't in the game. Adelakun isn't a loan signing you make if you mean business. Tell me different.

 No loan signings are any good if you want to go up, it gives a false impression of quality. Loan signings, favoured by SE, do help to get promotion but at the end of the season they are off elsewhere or back to their own club. This then leaves you in the position of being promoted without the means of staying up, that is unless you go back to the loan market.

I favour the loan market to cover for long term injuries or illness but it is hardly conducive to building a successful team.

We were much the better side in atrocious conditions and were very unfortunate not to win the game but that's how it goes sometimes. None of the teams at the top will get to the end of the season without dropping points here and there. The refereeing was baffling again. It is incredibly tight at the top and we are right in it which is fantastic.
