Only Tim Abrahams eligible I think from the newbies today.More flexible squad though and at last some positivity around the place.Will put a couple on the Gate.Would love a win for the manager who is a genuine guy.Delighted we have kept JCH who hopefully will score today.Won't be easy but reckon we'll do it. Will need a 'Who's Who' for the next game.UTG.

Coventry progress and their brand of football have impressed us all haven’t they? But we are something of a bogey side for them?
Watching Tuesdays match it appeared to me Gin Ginnelly went off with something pulled, so not expecting him to see him today. Expect Josh Barrell left of Jono and Rodman right in 4 3 3.
It’s the middle three that’s the problem. Ogogo, Clark and Upson. Upson distribution poor for a DLP. Ogogo has a good game when match fit, but it’s not the same as sercs. So played together the three of them are like the three cloggers.

Timmy Abraham not even on the bench and The double Barrell on loan from Derby starts.Needs to toughen up but the lad from Preston also starts even though it looked like he had a pulled muscle at Bolton.Ogogo on bench.
We were well in control for 35 minutes! Pressing high, forcing mistakes, deservedly 1-0 up. Back 3 were exposed for the first with a lot of space in between Kilgour and Craig. Seemd to knock our confidence. THD caught out horribly on the left flank, Darbo raced passed him, ball into the box, cut back and we're 2-1 down.
Oh dear. Poor 2nd half. Played a lot of hoofball into the wind. One half chance for JCH (from a hoofball) when he nearly nicked it past the keeper and the ref bizarrely gave Coventry a free-kick. Apart from that - we didn't look like scoring. The subs, if anything upset the balance. We bossed it for 30mins. They bossed it for 60mins. Based on that - 1-2 was about right. I like the Coventry kit. The winless run continues. Not an awful loss, but yet another loss.
