    Likely unchanged bar injuries, but I'd have Brown in for Mason.

    If Thomas isn't fit I can see why people would like to see Wakefield - like-for-like replacement, we're at home and in a good run of form so probably not going to get a better opportunity to give him a go. It is a bit risky and MR seems to be rather risk averse so Shipley would likely come in, probably into the centre with Bayliss on the right.

    I'm quietly confident but I'll never discount City's ability to mess things up!

    Bit surprised he’s still there. He didn’t seem to have long left when we played them at their place and, just going by league standings, not much seems to have improved.

    I really am worried about this game. Think we need an early goal or 2 to calm the nerves. It’s just these damn teams at the bottom, they make me nervous!

    Easy win, even though they have something to play for. We have come a long way since the dross served up in Oxford for the League Cup (or whatever you call it). That was a really bad night out
    2 or 3 - nil to us. I'd love Bayliss to score a solo goal just to shut the moaners up

    Don't want to lose, as last time we played them at home (prior to Checkatrade) I got wound up walking alongside a gobby Oxford fan after they'd beaten us (IIRC) in our relegation year, and the thought of losing, coupled with the Ricoh row, would be a real downer. A win please, followed by a big day out for the SBA at Barnsley.

    Not going to be easy, especially taking into account our ability to unintentionally keep the opposition in with a sniff despite dominating. Need to be on front foot from the off. Regarding selection, Robins will have had them watched and if thomas is injured he'll select accordingly.
    Personally feel that the key to us sustaining a playoff push is keeping Willis and Hyam fit and on the pitch together. Have always said we are lucky to have kept Willis for this long... feel that this season will be his last with us though (unless of course we go up!! )

    Think likely that Thomas may be out......therefore think it will be the following.

    Burge
    Mason
    Sterling
    Hyam
    Willis
    Shipley
    Kelly
    Bayliss
    Bright
    Hiwula
    Baka

    Subs: Addai, Grimmer, Brown, Meyler, Wakefield, Ponticelli, Bremang

    12th minute turn your back for the number of years sisu have been there
    20th minute jump up and down at the estimated price to buy them out
    22:30 minute silence to respect the death of the first half of the first half
    36th minute go for a piss and a few pints
    50th minute come back from piss and pint and exclaim it's all shit
    60th minute applause for the debt they wrote off in the first administration
    65th minute 'stand up if you hate sisu' call the disabled bloke in front a scab
    72nd minute leave 'in protest'

    Excited about tomorrow's game but nervous, if we score first think we will win.

    I think Oxford will put 11 men behind the ball and play for a point, or try for a smash and grab.

    I hope we don't. I almost as embarrassing as "1-0 on your big day out" when we go 1 up and there's still an hour to play.

    Just about to head south
    Nice morning in Bawtry and hopefully same in Cov
    Good feeling about today
    Let's all get up the Ricoh and make some positive noise
    The best way to promote the sky blues is keep winning and show everybody what the club means to us all.

    Not wanting to put a downer on things as on the pitch everything is looking good. However, could this be our club’s last ever Saturday match in Coventry? There, I’ve said now! I think we will win today (I always think we will win however and quite often I am disappointed.
