He scored his first goal for us at home with a run from his own half, didn't he?   The home/away thing is nonsense.  The ifollow commentary made me laugh in disbelief (not for the first time

I didn’t watch the game.   The comments on here and on Twitter repeat a common theme and these as well as the result highlight the weaknesses in the team that are glaringly obvious.  

Definitely the first, don't see it for the second.

New striker rumoured signed in time to play Saturday, but not tomorrow. 

MacAleny Dearnley Rowe ( Blackwood DKD Grant ) .......is somebody on their way if the above is correct

Nah, all our strikers spend most of the game having a group hug in the dugout . But we rarely get to see them on the pitch.

I'd play Rowe in midfield if he's not going to play up front.

 

Even without the pace, he'd do a better job than Garrity or Keillor-Dunn.  He can trap a ball and pass 5m, so that's automatically an upgrade.

 

(I'd rather see us sign a dedicated centre mid though)

Official site team news says that Rowe and CBJ are probably out and Badan, Jameson, Blackwood and Grant are definitely out.

 

With that in mind, I'd go for a similar formation to Saturday.

 

Lawlor

 

Diarra

Piergianni

Clarke

 

Hamer

Ntambwe

McCalmont

Barnett

 

DKD

Bahamboula

McAleny

 

It's quite defensive minded but it makes our weaker players (mainly Hamer and Barnett) less exposed and still gives us a big threat on the counter attack.

 

Midfield is where we need a new signing the most, but as far as out-and-out centre forwards go we only really have Rowe (and he isn't even an orthodox one at that), Grant is a make-do-and-mend option in that role so it'll be interesting to see who we're looking to get in.  If the new guy isn't in until Saturday I'd go with Bamboozler through the middle tomorrow as he looked comfortable there on Saturday.

 

I'd start DKD ahead of Dearnley.  DKD can do a lot of the running for the bulk of the game and suits the counter attack very well, Dearnley has been most effective coming off the bench for the last 20 or 25 minutes IMO.

 

It'll be a tough game as Clough seems to have got their underachieving squad going a bit, but we have it in us to win no question.

From the official site match preview:

 

Team News

In terms of selection, for the return to home since Boxing Day, Head Coach Harry Kewell is still waiting to see if Danny Rowe and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson are available to feature as they recover from recent injuries.

Defenders Andrea Badan and Kyle Jameson continue to be part of full training as they increase their fitness to become match ready.

George Blackwood is still a couple of weeks away after a setback in his recovery, whilst Bobby Grant serves the final game of his three-match suspension.

 

From Kewell’s pre-match interview:

 

“The extra 24 hours has obviously helped our preparation in terms of playing on Wednesday instead of Tuesday, it's allowed some of the injured players to get match ready.”

 

Injured players - he’s either speaking of Rowe & CBJ or Badan & Jameson (the latter pair were in the squad on Saturday). I’m hopeful that he is referring to the former pair as we do need them back and starting.

I can remember him just passing it into touch when put under some slight pressure, and thats it
