I'll kick this off by asking....is this gonna be decided by Watkins/Benrahma v Andre/Rhian?
Plus an even bigger battle on the touchline with the 2 benches.

Going to be a nervy one, for sure.
The longer we can keep them out, the more they'll have to attack, giving us the chance to counter.
The b*****ds will probably score in the first 5 minutes now.

No subs again last night from Cooper. I guess the next days will put the emphasis on a combination of rehabilitation and tactics. I think the only question mark for Wednesday is if and how we accommodate Naughton. Would he improve the team by coming back in over Roberts or one of the back three? The link up play between Roberts and Ayew has looked particularly good in recent weeks so I'm not sure that I would change that area.

Great effort on Sunday but we seem to be sticking to the same X1 now and could this game be on too far on will the adrenaline get us through?

Naughton could come in for one of the CB's but if we sit deep maybe the 3 from yesterday may work better. Naughton could come in for Bidwell as a Left WB possibly

Mulder on crosses is non existent so that is a worry .. is Woodman out for the season? Is this a game for Celina , Kaluo or Garrick to contribute or would these not fit into our system currently?

Stick to the same team and have Naughton to come on.

I think if we get the first goal then it’s game over... looking back even before the sending off we had far more clear cut chances than them.

I would also tend to stick with the same eleven. Having Naughton available is a nice problem to have.

You can't change the side. No one deserves to be dropped. Why the worry on subs if all players are fit enough to get to the end of the match. You only need to sub if there's an injury,tiredness or you try to change the game. Fancy this to go to extra time. Hopefully not though and we get through.

Same eleven for me too. This system is working well and if it ain't broke...............

My only question is whether Naughton improves the defence if he returns.

Just noticed Sian Massey is one of the assistant ref's - always thought she was excellent.

Wouldn't change anything either, I think Naughton's a better fullback than Roberts but Roberts has been doing well in the wingback role so keep him in.

Roberts has been excellent of late.

Our Sian on the line......

Keep your eyes on the bench, and watch the niggles and a couple of hard challenges early on, on a couple of our players, hoping for a reaction.

Keep your heads boys, and keep the run going YJB

It's gonna be decided by the referee. Franks has been working on it the last couple of days.
