Very difficult to be positive about this one (without at least 2 of Oztumer, Daley, Nicholson returning from injury). Peterborough are top of the Home Form Table (25 pts from 10 games). Bristol Rovers are 18th in the Away Form Table (12pts from 11 games). Posh currently 3rd, Gas 19th (outside the relegation zone on goal difference). Last 5 league games: Posh DDWWW Gas LWLLL (General best odds Posh 4-6, Gas 9-2, Draw 3-1). Reasons to be cheerful? Anyone, anyone?
I will be a happy Gashead if we can steal a point from those posh lads from Peterborough, JCH has 14 in 25 games so a clean sheet would be a great boost to us.
One thing we definitely need to do is improve our set-piece defending. It's been costing us basic goals all season. Surely one of the few advantages of having 4 Centre Backs on the field is that you should be stronger at defending those sitiuations.
No there is a lack of responsibility with so many playing.
Turkish Messi /Nicholson back and a decent looking line up.
Turkish Messi /Scottish Pele back and a decent looking line up.
Still looks like 5 at the back with two defensive mid-fielders. But Oztumer and Nicholson definitely add a bit of quality and will hopefully provide an attacking threat. I've got a Tesco delivery due, which is quite exciting. So I decided to give this one a miss on iFollow.
Very even and open first half, Rovers giving a good account of themselves, best chance of first half fell to Nicholson who was mighty unlucky not to score with a sweet volley that struck the post, can we hold on for a point?, or can we dream for 3,....bring on the second half!....COYB!...
