    Only £150 return with jet 2.

    I was going to go, but throw in a hotel and car hire for one person, I was looking at over £650 for a week. Was a bit steep for me.

    That was kind of what I meant. The whole trip combined for just one match seemed excessive

    Ah.... Yeah, if a few people go and you can get a villa, it works out at next to nothing, but being a single traveller who doesn't want to stay in a hostel, you get screwed. My plan was a few days in Torrevieja, then go upto Benidorm for the rest of the week.

    The wife is away for a few days and I saw we were playing Northampton, so I thought I'd pop up from Bristol to see that. Thankfully, I did notice soon enough that it was in Spain. Could have been one of my more embarrassing moments!

    You know that famous old saying.

    "When the wife's away, go to a closed stadium to watch nobody play" ;)

    It would have been funny if you were just down the road but not so much driving from Bristol.

    We're going to win 5-0 and Northampton will say it was like playing a championship team.

    Hope we see Bapaga. Now Ponti is off on loan we need another youth striker to overhype.

    Interesting that Allen is on the bench still.

    He's mixed it up a bit by separating the new wingers as well.

    So I assume it will be:

    ---------------Marosi
    Dabo Williams McFadzean Mason
    ----------------Eccles
    ------------Shipley Baylis
    Kastaneer-----------------Hiwula
    --------------Bakayoko

    Wouldn't read too much into who is and isn't on the bench.

    I know it's only a friendly but make the following changes:

    Williams for Hyam
    Kelly for Eccles
    Shipley for Allen

    I think that might be the first 11.

    Looks like we're going 4-3-3 unless Bright comes in.

    Glad Eccles being given another chance. I thought he looked good v leamington. Mind you he was alongside Allen then.

    Mccallum has picked up injury and not on bench by looks of it

    good news bout Allen. Would suggest the hamstring injury is only minor. No way they'd risk even putting him on the bench if it was anything more serious.

    12 - SHOT: First effort of the game goes to Northampton. Joe Martin's effort from 20 yards out is deflected out for a corner, which is cleared by the #SkyBlues defence. #PUSB
