I'm not sure why everyone seems convinced we will get smashed - the more likely scenario is a narrow defeat, so there is always hope that with a game-raising performance and maybe a bit of luck and possibly some complacency on their part, a draw or even a heroic win is possible.

 

We only lost narrowly at Swindon 1-0 and also by the same score at Milton Keynes, and by a single goal at Preston in the JPT, when we lost there 2-0 in the league we had 10 men. The only heavy defeat away under RP, and the only time 3 goals were conceded in his managership in any one game, was at Chesterfield.

 

Bristol City are incredibly strong defensively, and haven't let a goal in for what seems like weeks and weeks, so the problem is more likely to be scoring, but perhaps this is to be our night to remember.

 

Please - above all else, no red cards for Vale, as 10 men struggling here would be painful.

With this being a bit of a freebee id change it up and play 3-5-2 with wing backs, I'd go:

 

....................Neal.................

..Veseli..Robertson.McGivern

Marshall........................Daniel

..........Brown......O'Connor.....

...............O'Sullivan...............

........Campion.....Pope.........

 

If Daniel's fit i think he could play the wing back role really well, if not I'd put Yates there.

 

I'd go with that, although Marshall seems to play better on the left - so for me it'd be Yates and either Daniel/Marshall. His work rate means he probably could play as a wing back. Also, Brown started off well but to get the most out of him we're playing him far too often. No-one seemed to mention it at the time but in the transfer window I think we needed a defensive midfielder - even if it was a young one - to learn off and replace Brown when needed.

Based on current form only a moron wud predict anything short of a thrashing even tho the players are at it again in the stokenal talking a good game hopefully they don't live well down to expectations as usual and somehow fluke a result
