Enough of all this conjecture about our manager, another game approaches quickly.
For some reason this game is kicking off at 2PM so unless you want to miss the first half get there or tune in early.

The second of our three consecutive away games against teams in the bottom 6 that we can ill afford to lose.

Their recent home form has been none too shabby with defeats only to Wigan and Scunthorpe - they are clearly making a fight of retaining League 1 status. Their away form is as bad as ours but 1 of their 9 points was won at Roots Hall.

Only a 0-1 loss to Wigan on Monday
a 1-1 draw with Blackburn
a 2-1 win against Walsall
a 0-0 with Bury
a 0-3 defeat to Scunthorpe
a 1-0 win against Blackpool

The worst scoring team at home, only 9 goals, coming up against the worst defensive team away, conceded 30.
Defensively they have conceded 20, but 6 of those were for Bristol R and 4 for Peterborough, otherwise it's only 10 in 11 games.

Alex Revell hasn't appeared since he got sent off in their 6-0 home defeat by Bristol Rovers and John-Joe O'Toole hasn't scored yet this season. Let's hope Saturday is not his day.

Well who starts for us; Oxley, Demetriou, Coker, Kyprianou, Turner, Leonard and Cox with 4 others. Midfield is a problem as always. Maybe we will have signed someone before Saturday.

My head can only see a 1-0 defeat at the moment I'm afraid.
