With the prospect of a very long trip up North to Carlisle at the weekend will the players go up on Friday and stay over or is it up at the crack of dawn on Saturday for the long journey up there. Surely its better to go up the night before but with money tight........ Anyone know??

Would think they are almost certain to travel up Friday, huge risk of getting delayed on such a long journey travelling Saturday and no chance to work the muscles.

Money is always tight, but we just spent 25k on Colger so its not as tight as it has been.

As said above we are travelling up tomorrow morning, its a long way to go and then play when you get there.

It's not uncommon for Southend to travel up the night before - they did it to Rochdale and Fleetwood I know for sure, and probably a few others.
