Should be a straightforward away win, however, being the FACup, upsets can and do happen,
1200 travelling U's support and a professional 0-2 prediction , Ruffels and Agyei

Hall Taylor Fosu

With Gorrin suspended and Baptiste injured, surely there's no other option than to play Mous in Midfield, with Forde on the left.
Would like to rest Henry, and give Sykes more game time, but feel Hall needs, and deserves, more game time himself, but feel both him and Sykes on the right could leave Cadden exposed, with a bit too much to do, whereas Henry will offer more when we don't have the ball.
No disrespect to Walsall, but this is probably a game we can win without Taylor, who could be rested, giving Mackie some game time, but with a few 1st team players already out, we don't want to push our luck!

Either way, given our strength in depth, the form and togetherness of the squad, whatever team Robbo picks, we're playing so well at the moment, I'm confident we'll get the win.

Is Gorrin suspended? I've lost track how these card totting ups work now but, I thought he would be suspended for a league match, not FA Cup?


Edit: Just checked and yes, he will be available for this game but not against Shrewsbury next league match.

Ah!

In that case, play Gorrin, and give Mous a rest, before he has to step in to midfield against Shrewsbury then!

Yes Gorrin only out for Shrews so play him tomorrow and at Exeter.
KR has said they won't go back to playing Mous in DM. My guess is Hanson will be fit to play next week. Bit of a gamble I would have thought!!

Hanson could be on the bench tomorrow and will play at Exeter.
I note that Walsall are undefeated in 5.
Our problems in midfield suggests that this may not be easy (please Gorrin is playing though)

They have hit a bit of form lately, even though the league position is poor. Hope we don’t take too much for granted, will be gutted if we don’t finish them off at the first opportunity. Really looking forward to this one. Easy to get to and a reasonable away end to make the noise in.

It's good to have Hanson back, but it was a serious hamstring injury, with a long layoff, so surely it's too soon to play him from the start against Shrewsbury next week?

Mous can easily fill in at DM and Moore is an adequate replacement at CB, and then Hanson can be eased back in, over the next few games.

KR has strongly indicated that Mous will not start as DM. 'We have moved on' was his comment.

Of course, KR has, from time to time, said things that are designed to keep opponents preparing for the wrong thing--saying that he expected Brannagan to be back for the Ipswich game (should it have taken place) was the last that I can remember.

Walsall looked one-paced and predictable in their replay against Darlington. Can't believe we won't emerge as clear winners with another clean sheet.

Looking for a resounding win and lots to cheer and sing about. Hotel afterwards and dinner in the restaurant next door. Want a good weekend away.

Yeah I heard him say that as well, but if we're missing Gorrin, Brannagan, Baptiste, and Hanson only just returning from a long injury layoff, I don't really see any other option than playing Mous in the DM role.

Unless Robbo's got a little surprise up his sleeve....
