Re: Outstanding

Just shows the importance of a in-depth squad when you can bring two in and be stronger Did we not turn things round last season after playing WHU at home.

Re: Jack Cork 'Minor Shoulder Fracture '

Suspect it will be McNeil/Hendrick/Westwood and Brady in midfield, meaning we stay 442. If we go behind them Jay Rod coming on to play alongside Barnes and Wood, with Brady making way. Just cant see SD starting with 443

Both full backs were told to play very narrow. In the first half they gave us huge problems down Lowton's side too-the disallowed goal came this way
Pieters is keeping his place on merit-just like Bardsley mid season last year was doing the same. That's why we generally have two in each position
