Why drop the Borough? Don't care, I'm putting it back in.

Earlier in the week I has a dream in which we drew Arsenal at home in round three. So if we're gonna have 90 mins of 'In 1969...' we need to win.

Get it sorted boys.

Would love to win and draw a massive Premier side away from home in the 3rd round, Like Spurs at Wembley, Arse or Man Utd so we can get a lot of money from gate reciepts and have a good following for a 3rd round day out with 4k or 5k Town fans there.

We have a 50% record away at Stevenage with 1 win and 1 loss.

Home and away we have beaten them 5 (6) times with 1 draw (win on pens) and 3 defeats including the infamous home game under MacMahon when they were non league and beat us under awful conditions at the CG.

I think our injuries have hit us hard and can't see past a single goal defeat today in front of a paltry 2,455 crowd with 520 from Swindon there.

Pre match trying to blend in with cockney rejects in The Standard Bearer.
Stevenage, "where imagination takes hold", possibly not the inspiration behind Bob Marley's Concrete Jungle, but if the cap fits..

Miles Storey leapt like a salmon to score with a header here once.
Had high hopes for young Miles, but once his haircut had a falling out with Paolo then that was it.

All about getting through today, doesn't matter how.
Hopefully our midfield aren't too demotivated by having their work described as irrelevant.

The anticipation of a 3rd round draw would be a good feeling.
Man Utd at home and the club announcing that vouchers issued at the FGR game will be required. Job done.

Not just injuries, here we have the farcical situation whereby Tom Smith, who this would have been an ideal opportunity to play is cup tied. Anderson presumably will not be playing as in round 1.  I daresay we'll only have 3 or 4 on the bench again.

It's an opportunity to play Vigs, on the basis it's only the cup and he needs a game.

I've a hunch Vigs will play.

Futch said the other day that he's 'back in training', which could be a precursor to 'he was injured all along, and now he's back'.

In goal or up front? He hit an absolute screamer in a pre game kick about - Yeovil?

Most keepers fancy themselves as strikers, Steve Mildenhall was a Swindon youth player as a striker but moved into goal about 16 or 17, he also played up front for Swindon at Tranmere in January 97.

If we are short on numbers and they are fit and willing...then why not.

So Dion Conroy (Knee Ligament), Chris Hussey (groin), Amine Linganzi (hamstring), Donal McDermott (ankle ligaments), Timi Elsnik (muscle) and Luke Norris (ankle), Tom Smith (cup tied), Keshi Anderson (Unavailable) we are probably going to be very limited in our options let alone numbers on the bench.

Will probably be the same line up that started last week but with Gordon/Woolery in instead of Anderson.

I wonder if he will put Vigs and Henry on the bench to make up numbers.

I predict the line up today will be -

                    RCC
Purkiss Lancashire Preston Iandolo
   Dunne Taylor Goddard Mullin
                Woolery
                  Smith

Subs: Henry, Robertson, Knoyle, Brophy, Gordon, Romanski, Vigs

Someone on FB saying Lingani has told them he is fit and playing today.  Hmmm

I am glad Taylor is back at LB he doesn't have the legs to play CM any more, I wasn't convinced by Iandolo at LB last week.

Linganzi will allow Goddard a bit more freedom from his defensive duties which he failed at last week.

Gordon and Woolery have pace to burn up front so no hoofball by the look of it.

Nice to see Vigs back in goal and hope its all settled between him and DF now.
