    I reckon 3-1 us, Beavon to get 2 and George Thomas to get 1.

    Burge
    Willis Clarke Stokes Haynes
    Reilly Stevenson
    Lameiras Rose Reid
    Thomas Beavon

    Give Ruben a chance to build on his goal, and keep others in the team that have been playing well. Something like the above at least would be alright with me.

    Me +1 going to this one.

    Looking forward to it, a six pointer and looks like we are starting to get somewhere under Slade so will look forward to his approach to the game.

    2-0 Cov :)

    Did think about Clarke, might chip in with a few headers.

    I think another 3-0 win,

    Beavon (2)
    Thomas

    Think we may start to pick up a bit of momentum now

    You're right sneaking 12 players might actually get us a win

    Burge

    Willis Clarke Turnball Stokes
    Jones Rose Stevenson Reid
    Tudgay ( cant believe im saying that) Beavon

    best team for me at the mo although Reilley, Haynes and G Thomas all have cases for a place after the last 2 games. Foley will prob start too! We need a striker though in this window urgently

    The problem for me is those two wingers. They have almost no end product on their own, and with two of them it'll be a frustrating 90 minutes where we should be winning 3-0, but are only 1-0 up, and then get punished for not killing off the game by conceding in the last minute.

    Think this is the likely team except possibly Burge in for RCC as he started against Bolton.

    Tudgay will start, as will Reid probably. I suspect both were rested for Brighton with Chesterfield in mind.

    Thomas should start with Beavon. That should be our number one strike partnership from now on, until we sign another striker, which I hope we will.
    Tudgay should be reserved for the last 15-30 minutes of games.
    We do need another striker.

    Pretty sure Thomas will get the nod ahead of Tudgay given Slades comments on Tuesday night

    I'd expect Slade to pretty much play the same team that played against Bolton but Foley in for Sterry.

    _--------------Burge
    Foley---clarke-turnbull---haynes
    ------------rose----reilly
    Thomas----tudguy-----reid
    -----------------beavon

    In a 4231/442

    Bench
    RCC
    DKE
    Stokes
    Stevenson
    Lamieres
    Jones
    Bigi

    1st team to score will win it! Confidence is so low between the two sides.​

    Burge
    Foley Clarke Turnbull Stokes
    Reilly Stevenson
    Reid Thomas Lamerias
    Beavon

    That or Thomas right, Reid left and Tudgay in for Lamerias.

    That defence is looking a lot better.

    Cannot see why Slade will not go 4-4-2 again tbh and I think he likes Beavon and Tudguy as front 2.

    I think unless Willis is still unfit Turnbull could be on the bench maybe,,,actually stike that think he'll probably
    move Turnbull to LB think may be a bit too soon to start Stokes? Not used to having defensive options.

    Burge GK
    Foley RB
    Clarke CB
    Willis CB
    Turnbull LB
    Reid LM
    G.Thomas RM
    Reilly CM
    Rose CM
    Tudguy ST
    Beavon ST

    Subs: RCC, Haynes, Stokes, Bigi, Stevenson, Jones, Lameiras

    Quite strong 18 actually I am going for a 2-1 win to City

    I'm sure we won't play Stokes. Bench for him I would have thought.

    Do bookies give odds for us conceding after 90 minutes?

    Is it me being cynical thinking Chesterfield wouldn't mind this game being called off tomorrow?

    With snow forecast it might be possible too, though just looking at the forecast now it doesn't quite look so bad.

    Starting to feel like I support a football team again - I hope we fucking hammer them and kickstart this god awful season.

    0-4 City: Beavon, Thomas x 2 and one of Reid's crosses to accidently go in.

    Would be happy with that. not sure if Stokes will be fit enough and would go with the Tudgay option or even put Rose in.

    Should be OK to go ahead I would have thought. Have they got a history of postponements for frozen pitches? Think that would be the biggest issue.
