It’s like doing life for a crime you didn’t commit 

I think they'd be better off using a ball. You can't throw a towel that far.   Sorry. 

We could do with a striker to use of the bench, to hold the ball up and be dangerous from set pieces.   But we let him go.     Miss you Urko.

Harry Kewell will have watched Cheltenham twice recently - against Newport and then City in the cup. He cannot have failed to notice the two GIANT centre backs plus the overuse of that long throw. 

 

This could be the game to bring back Piergianni as his aerial presence may well be needed. I’m certainly unsure as to whether his recent absence is down to him carrying a niggling injury or him being dropped. 

Also, if he does start, it will be interesting to see who gets the captain’s armband. 🤔

 

Both Adams and Hilssner have shown, in the limited time they have been at the club, what better players can add to the side. As well as bringing experience and more control they also have a positive impact on others around them. We have already beaten Cheltenham at home. Let’s hope that our good Away form continues on Tuesday evening.

He was injured in the Mansfield match. He couldn't even walk for the last 10 mins. So he wasn't dropped, jus nursing an injury

Yep, as said, we've already seen em off and we've done the same to those above em.

I see a draw or better

Haha, as long as the only part of his body that the ball touches is his head we will be better.

I'd keep the same line up that started on Saturday if they're all fit.  Jombati and Garrity haven't been great (nor terrible) but they've been part of a team that's not lost in the last two so I'd keep them in for now.

 

Sadly I think the only change will probably be McAleny out and Barnes in.

 

*I forgot that CBJ started ahead of Badan.  On Saturday's performance I'd have Badan starting.

Strange with CBJ, sometimes oozes quality, but really needs to up his game and shrug off the complacency, ex Premier league player or not.

Agree BP...solely down to his attitude and a lack of concentration...he could probably play in the Championship but it just looks as if he can’t be arsed!

Just noticed it was a September report, thought he was only here until the end of the month.😖

I know he has come in for some criticism recently, and rightly so, but I think Piergianni must start on Tuesday to deal with the aerial threat that will come from the Cheltenham set pieces. Would also play Hamer for the same reason and move Adams either inside or further forward...

It makes sense with Tozers long throwing ability but someone will need to watch May for the knockdowns

Other than that, nothing we haven't dealt with from them before.

Pidge should do better now he doesn't have the weight of the captaincy, Hamer possibly but unsure?

This will be a real test. I thought Cheltenham were very good v City, tried to play football rather than hoofball throughout and gave them a scare. Hopefully they'll be knackered/on a downer after the late defeat.

 

It's been said that they are one of the top footballing sides in L2 but hopefully this will help the likes of Hillsner and Adams. Alfie May is a danger, he ran rings round us when they beat us 3-0 there last season.

Had a little chuckle when the commentator mentioned them being able to concentrate on their promotion push with the visit of Oldham on tuesday night

Hope we approach this one as we did against the likes of Exeter, Cambridge and Newport but on this occasion we're not only stronger, we're coming off the back of a home win.

Duff's developed them really well in the last 2 seasons.  He took them over at the bottom of the league, made them solid and hard to beat first and has gradually brought in more talented attacking players and now they probably have one of the deepest squads in the league.

 

I'm optimistic after Saturday that we'll compete with them (unlike the game there last year when we were so far off the pace from them) but it'll be a tough game.

We usually do ok against footballing teams it's the big physical outfits we have often struggled against.

The game after will be far tougher and I'd take a draw at Cheltenham if it lead us to victory over wellens crew, saturday.

Agree on Pidge.  Hamer no way. Being able to head is useless if your man is 5m away because you were caught ball watching.  Last thing we want against a team with a set piece threat.

Pidge has missed 5 games....we certainly haven’t lost any of them and we are either 4 1 0 or 3 2 0 without him......and of course one of those games was our victory over Cheltenham themselves.  I can’t see any case for recalling him

Pidge probably has to start due to the bombs that will be incoming.


Recent form and the fact we have beaten them already this season is in our favour. Let’s hope we live up to that.

Not true. He wasn't playing when we lost 2-0 at home to Scunthorpe.
