That could work. Needs everybody alert to defensive duties. And leave Napa up top at corners, just in case we can break. Kane and Riccy are fine with running the wings so that ought to give Thomas a chance. Ledson doing everything except getting booked to stop any incursions! High press and give them no time on the ball. (just hope they are all fit)maybe ruffels for Henry for a bit more bite. Ledson to help protect the back 4. Use the pace down the lines. Balls in the box for a forward facing Thomas, and on rushing Henry and rothwell
You look at that team - particularly the midfield - and you wonder why we’re struggling. It’s apparent our problems lie at both ends of the pitch, error prone defence and not enough options up front. Maybe a sneaky win will get confidence going and things will improve..maybe ruffels for Henry for a bit more bite. Ledson to help protect the back 4. Use the pace down the lines.

Brannagan trained with team yesterday. Probably make the bench.All good runs and bad runs come to an end. We have beaten Plymouth so why not again? Expecting a close encounter with a 2-1 to us. Going 2-0 up and conceding with twenty minutes left. Any news on Brannagan?
With them having Ryan Taylor upfront definitely needs to be in the line up. Taylor is exactly what Mousinho and Martin struggled with, the tall hold up striker. Get Mike Williamson in there for no nonsense defending and as a centre back who can challenge for headers.View attachment 209
Our worst nightmare. Haven't seen them play, but from above they put it on the penalty spot a chaos follows.
Our already shakey defence dealing with balls into the box will be put under some serious pressure. Could be a game for Williamson to try and control the box.
