    Team news in.

    Storm Dennis will make his debut on Saturday with rain and 50mph winds.

    Not going to be easy weather conditions again.

    Would take a 1-0 own goal victory all day long.


    I don't want to predict anymore as I don't want to jinx it lol

    How are ticket sales looking?

    Not far from me so it makes a nice change not having to shoot up the M11. Although I will miss the old dears Sunday roast in beautiful Bedworth but It's a sacrifice I'm willing to make.

    Worst home record and I think they’ve sold some players to raise funds in January so had to be a win

    I’d guess he will swap Bakayoko and Godden as the only change

    It's hard to change a winning team but I would be tempted to add in Giles and Godden potentially.

    It's up to Robin though.

    We should be able to put 5 past these. Can't see us conceding any goals again this season, maybe one against Rotherham.

    0-5.

    I'd give the likes of Kelly and McCallum a rest against Southend. Unsure of who to put in that holding role as none of our midfielders can really play there except Eccles.

    Apparently Southend were forced to field a few of their U23's against Peterborough due to injury woes. Last night they started with Rush (18), Egbri (18), Clifford (21), Mitchell-Nelson (19). Equally, their bench is littered with U23 players. Their four top scorers weren't in the starting lineup last night and some weren't even in the squad at all (likely out through injury).

    To make matters worse they made zero signings during the Jan transfer window, lost Tom Hopper to Lincoln, as well as releasing two players.

    They've only won 3 times all season, only one of which coming at home.

    Not one to be underestimated but realistically we should be winning this one.

    Who are the likes of Kelly and McCallum? Or do you actually mean Kelly and McCallum?

    Hate games like this. Players at the bottom will be out to impress.

    I'd be fine with a 1 goal win.

    It says best 1690 on 11th Feb but I can clearly see around 12 games we were in the 1700s.

    Another must win really. Looking at blocks of five we need ten points from this, Rochdale, Rotherham, Sunderland and Ipswich, so wins here and at Rochdale needed or we are relying on more results like last night. That said we haven’t won four on the bounce all season.

    Heart: 3-0 city
    Head: 0-0

    Go 352 and put Baka and Godden up top

    Marosi
    Rose McFad Hyam
    Dabo Kelly Allen Walsh Giles
    Baka Godden

    Switch it up second half if need be.

    I've spoken to Mark and you wouldn't believe how chuffed he is that you've left the decision to him.

    We should win this one no exceptions. These are the games we should take advantage of and post another 3 certain points, but football can be a funny old game so players must have a goodmental attitude and no cockyness!
    0-3

    Bloody hell I've only just realised the win , draw,lose values are variable match by match. Thought they were just some prescribed norm .
    What is it then that determines them ?

    All sorts of turmoil going on there reading the news today.

    Should and will win. But as usual it wont be a walk in the park, but 3 points is all that matters.

    Id go with same team, looking at the goals they conceded vs posh yesterday, looks like they struggled with midfielders running at their back four!

    2-1 win for us.
