Looks like Phil Turnbull will serve his one match suspension on Saturday, big miss for us.

Yep he is suspended tomorrow, he will be a miss but we have Brown back, Heaton possible home debut and two new players as well.

Hoping for something positive tomorrow which hopefully leads us in good spirits towards the trophy game and Styche also in the squad for next Friday.

Can see Collins being rested tomorrow in order to be used against Harrogate, as Heaton will be cup-tied.

Wilczynski; Trotman, Brown, Heaton, Galbraith; Portas, Syers, Wheatley; Thompson, Cartman, Mills

Subs: Burgess, Scott, Gillies, Caton, Saunders

Syers to play at the tip of the midfield 3 and support Cartman.

Might not be that formation but I think that the personnel will be there or thereabouts.

We need a positive result, as on paper this is one of our more winnable upcoming games and it will give the team a boost before next Friday's important cup game.

Turnbull will always be a big loss but hopefully we can see that game through without him. Don't agree with the idea of resting players. We are in the midst of a tough run of games and tamworth is one we must earmark to get decent points out or ergo the best team available has to play. For me I'd go for:

------------------------ Wilczynski -------------------------

---------------Brown, Collins, Heaton-----------------

Trotman----------------------------------------Galbraith

-------------- Portas, Scott, Wheatley ---------------

-------------------------- Syers ------------------------------

-------------------------- Mills -------------------------------

Subs: Vaulks, Thompson, Gillies, Saunders, Cartman.

Adding Scott into the midfield hopefully helps us win the midfield battle and then pass the ball off to Portas or Wheatley to drive us forwards. When we have the ball Syers gets free reign to go and be a second striker and get in the box. Without the ball he plays at the tip of a midfield diamond , with scott at the base, to give us lots of cover infront of our box.

Start off by making sure we get the clean sheet today. If we can do that ( I know it's a big if ) then I reckon we'll have enough on the pitch or bench to get us the goal we need to win it.

Cant see Cartman featuring today now he's said he's on his way out.

I can't see us getting much more than between 1200 & 1300, even though the weather is reasonable. Hope I'm wrong of course.

Yes, I've read up on it now. He's gone not going.

I'd go with Saunders up front after he apparently terrorised the opposition last week. Syers and Mills behind him.

Ed

Brown
Collins
Heaton

Trotman
Portas
Scott
Galbraith

Syers
Mills

Saunders

I’d like to see a front three of
Saunders — Syers — Mills.

Saunders would be more effective playing off someone central who could hold up the ball.

Communication between the forwards is vital so this would probably be improved with our own SMS service.

Keeper from the youths I guess?

What shape are we playing? Caton with Gillies, Mills and Thompson behind? Awful lot of attacking midfielders in there!!

Not sure quite why Brown decided on a short throw when the other two centre halves were waiting in the box for a long throw. The fact he took it short and we lost the ball from the blocked cross meant we were stretched at the back again. The only time they really had us stretched as well.

Crap game in which neither side looked like scoring. We just didn't seem to carry any real threat in and around the box whereas the one clear-cut chance they had was promptly thumped into the back of the net. The worrying thing is that you could very easily see us losing four of the next five games, given how tough they look. One point from the last four games tells its own story and its looking increasingly like a relegation fight could be on the cards. The new players will have to bed in very quickly.

The one bright spot today was the performance of Trotman. He looks a real prospect but the rest of the day is best forgotten.

We played quite well, but didn't take our chances when they came, whereas Tamworth took their chance. Thompson was very good. Caton had his best game in ages. The 2 new signings look promising.

Problem is, we've got some very tough fixtures coming up - this looked our best chance to get 3 much needed points. Hopefully Styche will give us someone to lead the line and provide a bit of cutting edge.

No atmosphere again, and even more disappointingly some rugby club members (presumably) showed their true colours today. Never felt more unwelcome in a bar at a game of football. Not sure how there can be a long term, mutually beneficial relationship if that's their attitude to be honest.

Agree with Lordlucan. Awful game, nice football at times but all in midfield, absolutely no penetration at all in the final third. Just not strong enough and don't move the ball quickly enough. Relegation battle for sure, I would guess any combination of our last 15 or so games would firmly put us in bottom 3 so how can we not be in a relegation battle with the games in hand other teams have, and our forthcoming fixtures.
I know it's early days for Wright but why continue with 1 up front at home when last 2 games we haven't even looked like scoring. Even when 0-1 down with 20 mns left surely try something different, but no! Even push Brown up for last 10 but no let's stick to what isn't working!
Also, why sign Heaton then drop him? Ok, Thompson did well, but surely Galbraith has to play there. 2 new guys on first impressions don't look any better than what we already have, but guess give them a few games.
Sick of hearing also that " this team was good enough last year" etc. We only had 4 players today who played regularly last year, so shows how our squad has worsened.
Rumour today that we have bid for another Tamworth player who was on the bench today. Surely this isn't the way forward, sell Cartman and buy a Tamworth reserve....
Not impressed so far with Wrights actions I have to say?

Not sure how Wheatley smashing the ball against the bar and then a point blank save by the keeper means no threat? I'm always worried when Brown takes the long throw-always likely to backfire.

The new right back did well I thought, and put more decent crosses in than Marss has all season. I like Marss but thats one area of his game that is lacking.
