Allen and O'Hare in for Westbrooke and Shipley.
Mason surely has to get a game?
McCallum will be rested I feel,Allen & O’Hare to start for Shipley & Westbrooke
Was thinking this myself, Pask to start and JJ off the bench
Interesting that Robins said the team looked tired on Saturday so changes are likely
Two or three did well in the U23 games last week so they could feature
Bristol set to be without their manager who has taken leave due to a family illness
Oh dear, hope things turn out okay for him.
Suspect biamou will start as well
40mph winds and rain forecast for Tuesday evening, should be a fun!
Sit high up in the stands should be fine
There will be plenty of room.
Think it will be a 4k crowd for this one (I'll be there shouting bobbins!)
I’ve lost some of the appetite I had for this one. In the first tie I wanted a full strength team but I’d be quite happy if he played a second string.
When he was asked on Saturday though he said three days was “plenty of time to recover” so who knows
He also said we looked tired during the game too which is a little bit of a contradiction - hopefully that's just Robins keeping his cards close to his chest. By playing the same team 4 matches in a row, we've lost the advantage that we had over other teams due to the boxing day postponement. He simply has to change things up for this game otherwise we will be in danger of running out of steam later in the season. I would expect Mason, Allen, O'Hare and one of Biamou or Baka to start as a minimum with possibly Pask too.
I’d like to see a few changes. Shipley and Westbrooke look tired. We’ve got a decent squad, let’s use it.
Yep those 5 were the ones I was assuming too
I think that’s optimistic - I’d say more like 2.5k
hope it’s nearer the league attendances than the efl competition
This would be my choice. Gives the players who looked shattered on Saturday a necessary rest and still fields a competitive side.
I agree, think it’s going to be a low one
CB: McFadz (need some experience)
AM: Shipley (too soon for JJ?)
Gosh that would be a statement and if we lost accusations of not taking it seriously enough
Pask isn't a RWB. He's a CB who can play RB so I doubt Robins would be willing to put him here as he'll be at risk of having little to no attacking threat on the right hand side.
I was unsure about leaving out McFadzean as he played well on Saturday and he brings a lot to the table, but he's going to need a break at some point otherwise at his age he's likely to pick up an injury. Like you said though experience is needed in that back line. Robins may be forced to play him.
I think you need a midfielder who is able to break up the play and sweep up if putting 3 midfielders out. Maybe he has to sacrifice this though as he simply cannot start Kelly after Saturday's showing and neither Pask or Eccles are experienced enough in this role. But who else is there?
I can't see Hiwula starting. He's completely out of favour at the minute.
I'd be surprised if Shipley starts on Tuesday. He needs a rest. Way too soon for JJ IMO.
After Saturday's showing Robins is surely going to have to sacrifice something though? There's at least 3 first team players who have to be rested otherwise firstly, they'll physically be no use on the pitch and secondly, are likely to pick up injuries due to fatigue.
Allen could do with a start.
Certainly it needs freshening up and I would expect to see three or four changes. Although Godden has to start for me. Only just back to fitness and still needs games.
Kastaneer on the bench for headlock duty
Fair comments. I saw Pask in the u23 game though and he was good going forward and I just felt Dabo deserves a rest.
On another matter, is this viewable online? I’m currently down in London and was going to come back for it but tbh if I can watch it online I’ll probably stay down here a bit longer.
anybody know if any/who will be showing this match - not many games so surely someone will be showing it....
My guess is Bet365 again. And the stream sites will use that feed.
He was good going forward against Leamington in pre-season too. But against a tough Bristol side I still think it would be a risk playing someone who is yet to feature for us this season, in a relatively unfamiliar position at RWB.
Not sure. You may be able to stream it somewhere online but it won't be on iFollow.
Just as an intellectual exercise not necessarily the team I’d go for, I reckon this is the most you could change it without weakening too much.
Drysdale Rose Hyam
Dabo Pask Walsh Mason
S: Wilson, McFadz, McCallum, Kelly, Shipley, Jones/Kastaneer, Godden
enough on the bench in case we are looking like losing control of the game.
