After Saturday's heroics an anti-climax, but money is at stake and a win will keep us in the running for the KO stage. A useful competition to give the squad match fitness, the chance of Wembley not so important in a promotion season.  But time to put Rochdale in their place with some cracking goals from our aspiring youngsters, 2 each from Politic and Taylor please.

Rodney to play, get him back up to speed asap.

No way I would play Conlon or Gibbons in tinpot games. keep them safe.

Taylor deserves to play and show what he can do.

Walker and Garrity, what's happening with them injury wise these days?

Stone 

Gibbo Johnson Martin Benning 

Taylor Conlon Walker ( unlikely to be fit )

Amoo Rodney Politic 

I'd do 4-3-3 due to personnel. 

Sub Gibbo after 45, likewise Conlon. 

I'm starting Conlon as don't think he's yet been his brilliant self so another 45 under his belt won't hurt .

If as expected Garrity is out and realistically Walker won't be fit enough then Pett might have to play.

Not going tomoz but good that those who can go who had a season ticket  last season can go and get in for nothing (does that include ten gamers doubt it personally but doesnt matter we didn't invest in whole season like the worthy who did ).

Team well who knows firstly play a team who can win the prize money and game,  also more importantly get some minutes into the hungry to show the manager what they can do others so my team  

           Stone 

Martin Johnson Smith 

Hurst                        Benning 

       Taylor Walke(if fit if not Conlon )r Pett 

         Rodney Lloyd 

Keep Amoo and Politic fresh for Sutton and night off for the rest .

Subs 

Five youth teamers and anyone I've failed to mention who hasnt got in team yet but is banging loudly at the door .

Goes without saying that Clarke will want to keep the winning streak going and I reckon he’ll keep the 352 system as follows:

                                               Stone

                    Cass.                 Smith.              Johnson

Politic.                        Pett.              Conlon.                   Benning

                                            Taylor

                         Proctor.                   Rodders / Wilson

The beauty of our squad, this season, is that the second XI is strong, too!

I think we’ll go 4-4-2 tomorrow with players like politic, Taylor, Amoo, Benning, Amos (maybe), Johnson, Rodney, Amoo etc all getting a run out. 

The great thing about DC is that he is so unpredictable but 442 is as good a shout as any.

If he does, then given the injuries we've got, it might look a bit like this:

Stone

Cass Smith Johnson Benning (sub Amos)

Amoo Taylor Pett Politic

Lloyd Rodney (sub Bailey)

Don't normally bother with the Papa Joke but with the prospect of seeing Ammo and Politic down the flanks I might just make an exception.

Completely forgot about Lloyd. He plays in my book.

Need to rest as many as possible tonight whilst giving squad players minutes to put their case forward. 

As already seen Walker out and I've seen no news yet on Garrity , the squad is going to play huge part this season.

Does anyone know why tickets aren't available online for this game? I was going to come with my father but we simply do not have time to travel and get him a ticket before a 7pm KO. 

The only article that I can find on tickets doesn't mention any changes to purchasing tickets and they were available for the league cup game which had similar stand closures etc. 

 

Had we known that they weren't available online I could have got him one when I collected my free one with last years season ticket.

I can never remember what the rules are for how many of the last game's squad you have to play in this one.

For me, I'd start everyone on the bench from Saturday and perhaps keep Smith/Cass and Pett to plug holes in defence and midfield.

Something like:

Stone

Cass Martin Johnson Benning

Amoo Pett Taylor Politic

Lloyd Rodney

That's got nine members of the last league squad in it. I'd then have the likes of Hurst, Amos, Bailey on the bench with the likes of Proctor, Wilson, Worrall and Conlon all safely away on the sidelines with no chance of picking up a knock.
