Sigh. Will be a tough game, but it's not a Tuesday, we are away from home, and I'm going out instead.

2-1 to town, back on track.

Good test and a big pointer for the season in my opinion.

Couple of injuries, come back after heavy defeat, decisions for Wellens re selection and style of play.

I'm up for another win all but a narrow one

As Knoyle said - a step up in class to go to a club like Cambridge and their 3K+ crowds so it will be difficult for us to get a result.

Yeah I'm still salty about it

Agree.

Cambridge look one of those sides better away than home so gives a bit of hope. However the wins back to back at Crewe and Mansfield were very impressive, and a win for them by 2 clear like Macc last week would take them above us, so in that sense a point not so bad.

THey do however have the ex Town player factor in Knoyle and Richards, although I'm not feeling Tuesday's inevitable Theo thing.

As a number of us have said in other matchday threads, our style works better away than at home, not least because few teams will play 9 back for long periods as some do at the CG. After Tuesday itís important we donít lose again as we need to keep up with / close to the top 3.
On balance I think we will get something at Cambridge, but they have had two impressive results in the last week, so we may have to settle for a point. Looking at the bigger picture (rather than focussing on Tuesday) in May we could well regard that as a very good result. Nil-nil or 1-1 possibly.

As Danny Rose pointed out, promotion winning sides don't lose back-to-back games. This is big.

I don't really know what to expect from them. On the one hand, on paper they're poor and the last two big away wins both came against 10 men. On the other hand, lose and they go level with us on points.

Fully expect a reaction to Saturday performance wise, but it might not be enough.

Team wise, expecting changes. I'd go:

             Benda
Hunt Baudry Conroy Fryers
          Rose Grant
   Keshi    Doughty   Woolery
                 Doyle      

Bit risky, but not "droppping" Yates and Isgrove - more rotating and keeping people fresh. Expect them both to make an impact off the bench if we need them to.

Score draw, 750 town fans.

I'd take a point, but I think we need at least that. Could do with 4 points out of this and Newport next week, neither of them exactly gimmes

Knoyle or Rob Hunt. Fuck me, no contest there. Wellens knew what he was doing with that one.

McCormick retains his place according to Wellens - as he should.

663 sold in advance. Good effort. At least 666 there now given we're paying on the day.

670 now, 4 of us paying on the day. A very good effort! Could be looking at around 800 away supporters.
