So, the team have been ooop narf since Tuesday's spirited defeat at Wolves. They have trained at Port Vale and Huddersfield's training facilities and Sturrock has an almost fully fit squad to choose from. The only absentee will again be Mark Phillips who has a hamstring problem. It's time the lads carried their cup performances into the league games. But will tonight see the lads pick up the first 3 points of the season?

Who will start this one?

Has Mohsni done enough to get the nod?

What formation will Sturrock use?

Our Opponents

Bradford have started the season pretty poorly as well. An Opening day 3-1 defeat at Shrewsbury, a 1-0 home victory over new boys Stevenage and 2-0 reverse at Torquay. They have also beaten Forest 2-1 in the CC first round. But lost out in the 2nd round 1-2 to Preston on Tuesday night, after extra time as well. So both teams will be tired...

Robbie Threlfall will return after serving a one-match ban in the 2-1 Carling Cup defeat by Preston.

Lewis Hunt and Lee Bullock will also be back, but on-loan Tom Adeyemi faces a late fitness test.

Whatever line-up we decide on, we seem to be a bit tighter at the back but short of firepower upfront. Just had a bet on a 0-0 draw at 10 to 1 in Ladbrokes!

Mohsni has to play for me, alongside Barker but that will all depend how Gilbert is after 120 minutes after injury.

Corr and Hall to start aswell please.

I'd hope that Bilel has done enough to earn a place in the starting line-up, he looked beastly on Tuesday I have to admit. I can see this petering out into a boring draw as both teams had games mid-week and both will be low on fitness. 1-1 at the most but I'd take a 1-0 win.

Just about to leave work and travel up. Think Sturrock will go with a five man midfield and play one up front tonight.

Cannot see why the team should be any different to Tuesday depending on fitness.

I'll go same again then and a 1-0 win :) Zaaboub finally getting a freekick to stay inside not only the confines of the stadium, but nestling in the roof of the net!

Agree, bar Barker, don't think he'll play CB again.
