Darlington V Telford

Post by Darlopartisan » Thu Nov 12, 2020 2:35 pm

Any predictions on what our lineup for Saturday will be?
It was great to see Hatfield and Atkinson on the pitch Tuesday night.

For me id look to rest a couple of players. Liddle has played every game, could maybe just do with a weekend off, want him fighting fit and if we rest him once in every few games to do so, so be it. Imagine Hunt will be out for a couple of weeks. Hatfield to come back in and give us his leadership and dynamism. Reid has played most games so give him a rest for Holness. Not sure how bad Charman's knock was but if he's still feeling it I'd let him rest, 2 games a week for the foreseeable so rather give him a couple of days to get fit:

-------------------------- Saltmer ---------------------
McMahon --- Laing --- Storey --- Watson
---------------- Hatfield --- Wheatley ------------
Rivers -------------- Holness ---------- Campbell
------------------------ Maguire ----------------------

Subs: Minter, Atkinson, Sousa, Hudson, Levi

Others might choose to rest Saltmer but for me if he hasn't been responsible for any of the goals we've conceded its harsh to drop him at the moment while he's still finding his feet as a No.1.

I,d suggest 3 in midd field, that is where I thought we were short on Tuesday, maybe I saw it differently but we were unable to get hold of the game and it was a midd field problem I thought, people see the same game and have another take on it, that's my take,

Agree, I would put Sousa in an attacking midfield role so he can have more of the ball rather than wide left,with Hatfield and Wheatley. A front 3 of Rivers, Cams and Charman or Maguire.

McMahon
Watson
Atkinson
Storey

Holness
Hatfield
Wheatley

Campbell

Charman

Having Sousa in there is not a “3 man midfield”. He isn’t a central midfielder for a start.

If you’re going to put him in an attacking midfield role then that’s exactly the same system we played on Tuesday.

What I am saying is I would prefer him to play more central rather than wide left.

Fylde game postponed today because Boston United player has tested positive for covid. I think we are outside the window where it has implications.

Like the look of that , Minter for Salter could be worth a try.

Saltmer for Minter, the rest looks fine. From the Northern Echo:

"Early on Darlington goalkeeper Johnny Saltmer made two stunning saves, pushing away Ellis Iandolo’s header after a Swindon free-kick on the left had been whipped in.

And when Joel Grant was sent racing in on goal after a pass from the centre-circle, with Darlington’s defence caught flat-footed, Saltmer narrowed the angle and saved well."

(In case you've forgotten already.)

I think Minter will get his first start today.

Minter

McMahon
Storey
Laing
Liddle

Atkinson
Hatfield
Holness

Rivers
Campbell
Sousa

Subs: Saltmer, Hedley, Reid, Hudson, Maguire

That line-up is presuming Charman is injured and Wheatley needs a rest.

If karma works, it should be the appallingly insensitive goalkeeper.

Think I'd take a scruffy 1-0 win today. Would like to see the loan keeper Minter given a go, but that is not to say Saltmer has done anything wrong. We could do with more points on the board just so we don't lose touch with the playoff pack and need to start a bit of momentum in the league.

That's how winning is done!"

Right now let's just take one step at a time and concentrate on moving away from the bottom of the table before we we aim for a playoff place?

:shock: We are really going to have to play through the lines with that forward line. Would’ve had Amantchi on the bench as something different. Also would’ve started Omar and given Reid a rest. Will see...

The only thing I can think of is Amantchi is not doing it enough in training AA alluded to this the other week, which is a shame.

Concerned about that midfield again. Omar > Reid, for me.

One of the few times I’m pleased I’m watching it on tv rather than being there! Telford playing in pink is no good with my eyesight!

Bang on.

Hatfield, Wheatley and Holness is our best midfield. Maybe Wheatley is injured or unavailable today, I don't know.

Reid would not be in my starting line-up. Not today, not next week, not next month.

Totally agree , Reid is not my cup of tea in the least, Omar a far better option.Awful 2nd half this.

That second half was absolutely piss poor. And it shouldn't have mattered, but oh no, we can't be doing something daft like scoring when we're on top can we?

Second match in a row where the opposition are prepared to work harder without the ball than we are.

Yes. Why Reid is playing every game I don’t know? I know Maguire is playing his way in, but taking Campbell off for him was a mistake. Really got to turn the form around in the league. 3 home games. 3 defeats.
