Which team will turn up? The one that thrashed York on Boxing day, or the other one?
Hopefully Nelson Nicholson and Hughes will be fit to start.
It will interesting to see Josh Heaton tomorrow, good player .

I’d be amazed if Sunderland allow us to risk Nelson today given the injury he had at the start of the season that halted his progress going out to a league club on loan.

Will be very surprised if Nelson plays today and if we see him again this season.Ainge must start with Harvey and to get the best out of him surely Tommy has to play 2 wide men,Thommo a no brainer with Kokolo on the other wing and revert back to a 442 but Tommy being Tommy it will be 352.Would like him to give 442 a go and try and make us more balanced but cannot see it somehow.

Kidderminster have an identical record to us over the last eight games, 8 points, W2 D2 L4. Think we'll have to be much better in defence than at York to get something out of this one. How many times have we said that this season?

We have a squad of players more attacking than defending and we need to be set up more defensively somehow as we will more than likely nick a goal,so put a more defensive player in and sacrifice an attacking one.

Has to get his plan right today. Give Thommo a chance, give the goalie some cover and stop their wide players. Wouldn't a 1-0 win be good for a change?

As I said I would have put in Thommo instead of Wollerton :)

Think it is 9 points from relegation zone - but yes, we are closer to the play-offs than relegation.

Well done Tommy!

The next 5 games looks a bit daunting - Curzon Ashton shouldn’t be but always fancy them against us.

A good, disciplined, tactically astute performance. 3 wins out of 4. Something to build on for the second half of the season

Pleased to see Thompson playing well again

What was the formation? Looks like 3/5 at the back based on personnel

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

Alfreton A - They are nowt spesh? We should be looking to beat these if we want to climb the table, minimum I expect is a draw. This is not a fixture which fills me full of terror.

Spendymore H - Yes they are a quality team but we have beaten some teams at their end of the table this season, and at last we're performing at home. Add in the fact that Spendy seem to have a massive mental block about playing us, and I'll be surprised if we lose this one.

Curzon A - Yep, sure fire defeat, they truly are our bogey side.

Brackley H - They are a good side but they are not the same team as last season. We have already twatted these fuckers 4-2.

Blyth A - In form for sure, so will be difficult. However I don't see Blyth being better than us man for man.

We will be 10-10-10 and 5-6 points off the play offs, after these fixtures.

Remember, we have beaten Brackley 4-2, Telford 3-0, York 5-1, Kidderminster 3-0, been 2-0 up at BPA, 3-1 up at Altrincham - we can beat anybody on our day. We need to start having more "days"

Too many draws after being ahead is what has held us back this season.

For the first 10 minutes they passed us of the park , Thompson scored a good goal, a nice lob over the keeper, after that we played some very good football, thought Smith had his best game for us, a well deserved 3 points.
Oh and York lost.

Yep back 3/5, with Thommo up front. Unlike everyone else on planet earth, I don't have a problem with that formation - although the wing backs need to defend better week in week out.

That was probably the most complete team performance of the season. We had shape, discipline, energy, commitment, organisation, moved forward with purpose and kept our formation when they had the ball. They showed early on they could keep the ball and knock it about well but a full-time side was well beaten in the end and to be honest were hardly given a sniff of our goal. If TW was able to produce that kind of performance on a more regular basis, no-one would be calling for his head and the crowds would start to rise again. Some great performances right through the side, led by man of the match Thommo, with honourable mentions to others including Wheatley, Elliott, Smith and Galbraith.

They passed us off the park but did absolutely nothing with it. In fact their game plan just encouraged us to press them and force them into mistakes.
Everybody today did their job well, including Wright. More of the same please.
