    I can see the team being changed a bit, but a 2-2 draw!

    What happened to the automated match threads?

    Think we'll win this but not a high scorer. 1-0.

    No idea what team we will put out tomorrow. Would be tempted to give the couple of kids a run out and the chance to impress, even if they don't play the full 90.

    Think we will win this but for some reason I think it will be a strange score like 4-6.
    Like going to Oldham and looking forward to those great cottage pies tomorrow, perfect Sunday lunch.

    George Thomas to get a brace, Jones with the third in a 3-1 win.

    Kids to be given a chance and we will play Oldham off the park :D

    I would expect TM to treat this like a pre-season game and take the opportunity to change the system he plays in a competitive match for one he may try next season which may include a few players on the fringes. That being said it could be any kind of result.

    Would just be nice to finish the season on a positive note, If it's kids, then see them be hungry and be knocking on the door for next season

    Only loans id play are Armstrong to get his goal and Stephens as theres not too much choice at the back.

    Is it going to look like a delayed kick off for the traffic?

    Play some youngsters and players who want a new contract. Tough game today. It would be great to finish on a win but expect a dull draw.

    I'd give Harries a go in a back three and play G Thomas again...

    -----------------------RCC--------------------
    ---------Vincelot---Martin---Harries--------
    ---Rose-----Gadzhev-----Fleck-------Hunt
    ------Jones---- G Thomas----Lameiras

    Bring on Arma, Murphy & Maddison on with 30 mins to go when Oldham tire

    I'd rather one of the Kelly-Evans and Stevenson got a run out than bringing murphy and maddison on.

    Will that make it our fault if Sunderland get relegated?

    I'm pretty sure Mowbray will sign Bigi if he gets released from his Newcastle contract

    Yes a bit of a kick in the balls for him to not be involved in the last two games.


    As for Martin, its either injury or Mowbray wanted to give Harries his debut.

    Must be a reason he hasn't made the bench though.

    Must be an injury, would have thought he would prefer Martin with Harries.

    Even so, happy Harries is getting a chance!

    Martin was on the coach so unsure why not in the squad. Same as Maddison

    I have a feeling Martin may be released, his contract is up and although he has been good this season Mowbray has never seemed to be his biggest fan.


    I could be way off the mark and he could have traveled with the team but carrying an injury.

    I was unsure about Martin this time last year, but think he's improved massively over the season.

    Phillips not on the bench either, Kelly-Evans ahead of him.

    Either these players aren't in Mowbrays plans for next season or Mowbray just wants to give a little experience to the youth players.

    If he is because Mowbray doesn't like him after all of his improvements, then Mowbray had better have a very good replacement lined up or to go outside and have a word with himself.

    Martin has been ruled out because of concussion.
