It is the day before Christmas Eve, and before Santa's big day we have our final away game of 2017 which is a long trip up north against Scunthorpe United at Glanford Park.

First a bit of good news Oxley passes a late fitness test and plays, Ferdinand returns to the starting lineup, but Ranger not in squad.

Today's team

Father Christmas: Phil Brown

His Elfs for today's team: Oxley, White, Turner, Ferdinand (C), Coker, Demetriou, Wright, Wordsworth, McLaughlin, Cox, Fortune

Subs: Bishop, Hendrie, Kyprinaou, Yearwood, McGlashan, Ba, Hendrie

I wonder if Father Christmas will make my dream come true and start the festivities off with a bang?

Does Phil tell the Twitter guy what the formation is? Surely that's a 5-3-2 rather than a 4-4-2.

I'm happy with the return of the front two, but that mid field doesn't have too much of a bite about it. Maybe we'll pass them to death and tackling won't be needed. Obviously, with the return of Anton and Simon all must be well in the Brown/old chaps camp?

Could be 442 or 532.

My guess is 532. Demi and Coker would actually make good wing backs.

Let’s hope we don’t have to win the ball back in the tackle much.

Any idea on Ranger?

So what has Nile done now - not even on the bench - must have dropped his alarm clock on his foot.

I think it probably is 4-4-2. Demi is no stranger to a four-man midfield having played there for Orient and McLaughlin is presumably on the left so that would make sense balance-wise. I thought Yearwood would be given a start with both Timlin and Lenny out but clearly not. Disappointing.

So, what’s the real story on Ranger?

Can’t imagine he’s dropped, so must be injured or he’s been a naughty boy again...
