Stengthening Northerly Wind to-day with wintry showers to-night and same for Sat and Sunday, with gale force winds throughout.

Spring has dissappeared and were back to winter !

So if we must play any long ball game to-day, best to do it when attacking the North Bank, where the ball may hold up against wind and we could get in behind their defence ?

Even if they don't, I'm guessing one thing they may have picked up in their 50 years plus experience of the professional game is that if you lump the ball into the wind it holds up, if you lump it with the wind, it goes miles.

Didn't seem to use the wind to their benefit much at all today. Got caught out by it several times in both halves. Mind you, so did Swansea.
