Make no mistake, this will be a tough one. They have their tails high after a very convincing victory over the Gooners and they will be looking to carry on this good form against us tomorrow. They have a good record against us and their manager Gollum often gets the better of us. He has certainly turned around their fortunes in the last few months. However, what often happens to us is that we raise our game against a better side and then fall flat on our face is the next game as we cannot lift ourselves to the same level of consistency. Let’s hope the same happens to them.

We did not disgrace ourselves against Palace and if we can play the whole ninety minutes with the same intensity then we could overcome them. It is a sure bet that the big Pole will wear the gloves. Long is a decent keeper and will eventually take over from Bart. But not tomorrow unless the lad is sick or Iinjured. Star of the last game Danny should line up on the right of defence and Hutch and Cooper should be there too. The first big question is where to fit Murray. His wife gave birth on Wednesday so he should be back in the starting line up. Will he be part of a back three or will he play wide left and allow Pearce to start? It’s a tough call. If he is in the back three then Molly would be on the left side of defence. Mindful of his poor defensive skills last week perhaps we would do better with Murray there.

Midfield has issues. Saville looked crocked last week and it would be a surprise if he had recovered sufficiently to make a start. It has all gone very quiet on that front so there is some uncertainty whether he has recovered. If he hasn’t then Evans is standing by as cover. Billy is nailed on. Ojo has had a revival and looked the part in a number 10 role. Hot shot Tom will be looking to find the net again and Benik should be his partner. There is some doubt about Jed who has trained but may not be fit enough to start.

My thoughts are,

Bart
Danny Hutch Pearce Cooper Murray
Billy Ojo Evans
Benik Bradshaw

Subs Long Molly Dutch Jed Bennett Smith Burey
