This time last week, we were all basking in the glory of a fabulous night away at Orient, dreaming of Wembley. Yet, 7 days on and the club finds itself in a desperate situation on and off the field.

At the end of the transfer window i can remember thinking that PS had done good business and the squad looked strong in all areas and ready for the final push of the season. In the space of a few weeks we now have an injury list consisting of:

Timlin, Tomlin - long term
Fred, Phillips, Barker, Laird, Lavery - short term
Leonard, Clohessy carrying knocks

and Cresswell suspended.

This has largely happend in the space of a week. Away at Oreint we were concerned that the team we put out might not be able to compete with Orient, but they did and did us proud. Of that team, potentially we could be missing Cresswell, Phillips, Barker, Lavery and Timlin, plus Clohessy and Leonard are carrying knocks apparently.

Last night i left deflated, yet i didnt think we played badly, more composure or luck in front of goal and a couple of decisions by the ref and we could / should have got something. A full strength SUFC would have done i believe.

Looking forward we are now very limited for options. The team that playes Saturday apart from Spillane is likely to be the one, barring injuries or suspensions that will have to take the field for Wednesday. I spoke with Barker who did say that he expects to be available for next Wednesday and also Phillips should be available for saturday.

WIth this in mind in guessing the line up for Saturday will be

Clohessy, Phillips, Prosser, Straker
Mayor, Hurst, Spillane, Leonard
Reeves and Britt


Clohessy, Phillips, Prosser, Barker
Mayor, Hurst, Leonard, Reeves
Britt and Corr

Thoughst anyone?
