I am looking forward to this as well, Curzon had some good results lately, and we are playing some good football, although struggling to score a little bit but creating chances. Fancy a good result out of this, a nice pint of beer and hopefully a good pie at the ground to make it an excellent day out :thumbup:

International clearance does always seem to take a long time, might just be that. Might be springing a surprise? Might have gone south?

You're right though, given we could do with a striker it's odd that we've not heard a thing in over a week about it.

To be fair the last time we needed international clearance to sign someone (Mark Beck) we announced the signing before we had international clearance (unless Falkingham needed it and I’m forgetting)

Remember how long we had to wait for Fisher? And the points reduction fears over (I think) callaghan? I think for a club without a full time secretary it's a bit of an administrative headache.

Don't think so it will be another tough game as they all are just hoping for a good performance for the travelling 300 or so Darlo fans..

The striker requiring international clearance was only signing if he impressed TW.

TW is even debating whether to sign a centre-forward as the return of Hughes will free up Ainge to play centre-forward. I despair, Ainge hasn’t looked like a centre-forward since signing.

Yes - we beat them away in August 2016. They missed a last-minute sitter. Hardy & Burgess scored.

Also beat them in March 2017 at home. Dave Syers in the last 10 mins I think after Thompson missed a penalty.

Two wins against Curzon Ashton in 5 meetings, the other three being defeats. Last win coming in last seasons home game, when after a fairly forgettable game of football, Phil Turnbull crossed from a freekick and Dave Syers diving header gave us a 1-0 win. Before that out other win against them also came in this division, we played them away early in our first season Liam Hard anf Kevin Burgess scoring in a 2-1 win.

We beat them in our first conference north season at their place, 2-1. They missed a real sitter.

That's only ten players? Presume O'Hanlon/Kokolo is missing from you're line up?

Wheatley missing. Looks like a 4-4-2 unless Elliott is going to play LWB. Would seem odd to play him there with Kokolo on the bench

Yet another crazy decision from Tommy, why not Kokolo for O'Hanlon and keep the same system instead of a change to 442.Sunderland won't be happy and could you blame them.I just don't get it.

I think it's just that the team above is missing a name. I'm sure either O'Hanlon or Kokolo will be at left wing back, Elliott, Nicholson and Palmer in the middle.

Apparently Elliott left wing back according to Darlo Fans Radio, he is quite simply NOT a left wing back whereas Kokolo surely is a better option.Wright has to make a decision on him, either give him a game or send him back.

Could be wrong , but I don't think Elliott has ever started on the bench.

TW never puts Elliott on the bench or ever subs him which I cannot understand.Seems to be one of Tommy's "favourites".?

We've been decent. I thought trotman should have had a penalty.

Elliott doing okay, could do with a bit more help.
