Think tomorrow we would benefit by bringing boukalkis in for Osborn and give Carayol a first start for McKay or Dowell?
Hopefully traore will be fit and Eric can move to his rightfull position along with manciene.
Murphy and walker should give Bristol something to think about and now Ben's off the mark for the season we can bring him on if needed.
A game not to give silly free kicks away in our own half with the areial goal threat from flint.
Quietly confident we can get a result,at least they're a team that play football which can suit us.

Great theory FF79 so long as Mills is not starting? If so then giving away silly free kicks is a given and Mr Flint will prevail!

I agree with most of what you say FF. i'd certainly adopt a defensive but swift counter attacking posture.Certainly,Eric needs to be in his best position,right back which means a recall to Traore to balance the team at left back. Mills and Worrall centre to combat their aerial threat,then cover with 2 defensive midfielders Bridcutt and either Vaughn or Bouchlakis probably Vaughn. I'd give Ward a start as his work ethic will wear them down then introduce pace down the flanks 2nd half with Carayol or Walker and McKay though it would be harsh to drop Walker after last week's excellent performance v Bolton. Then Murphy to start up top and Brereton to come on when the Irishman starts to tire. As for attacking midfielder behind the lone striker in a 4231 it's a toss up,in order of preference between Dowell, Osbourne or Clough. I await the team news tomorrow with great interest but we 'll need to work very very hard to even get a point,which would be excellant

I think MW will keep the same team as last week and bring on Carayol for the last 30 mins in place of McKay. We may also see Brereton and Walker interchanged. We need Murphy to lead the line with weight and aggression today. I can't see Osborn being dropped or Clough in the side. To me Edser and Cash are better players than Clough anyway.

Well mystic FF79 called the selection correctly except for Mills so the die is cast?
It will need to be another 5 goal thriller to get a result so COYR's

Leaving Benny Osborn out is always a risk - look at how well he played when he came on!

I feel Osborn's ability to play more than one position has made Warburton over use him.

The lad has bags of energy, but he for me runs on autopilot some of the time and and needs a break.

Osborn also needs to be given a constant position, and developed to make the most of him.
