Due to last Saturday's game at Newport being called off due to a frozen pitch, we are not only unbeaten in 2021 but some of the tired legs will have had a chance to recuperate before our visitors from way up north make the 640 mile round trip to Roots Hall for the first time since October 1971. We managed to win that game 1-0 but have lost all the other five competitive matches against the Cumbrians.
Hopefully some of the walking wounded and COVID infected will be fit to return on Saturday, but one player not figuring will be young Kaz who has returned to Spurs following the completion of his loan - it's difficult to see how the value of Sterling will have risen during his time with us.
There are rumours of incoming players too, including a young 6'3" striker from Portsmouth who has recently been on loan at Bromley with our own Michael Klass. To me, Reeco Hackett-Fairchild sounds more like a firm of solicitors but I'll reserve judgement on his playing abilities until I've seen him turn out for us. There may be others joining too so I'll leave a few blanks in the team selection sheet. Who would you select to start the first home game of 2021 and what do you think the result will be?
