Twice if you count last seasons play off final. Still a good record at any level.

We certainly have struggled against extremely physical sides who also defend well whithout playing a high line - Col U and Newport the obvious examples. Put in perspective however,  if Isgrove scores we have momentum and are favourites to go on and win the game and top the table.

As many here have said, we dont need a plan B as such - which we dont have the players for anyway - more an even increased focus on plan A, with some slight tweaks if needed. We were missing Boudry, Lyden, Doughty and Anderson who are some of our best exponents of playing through the thirds on the pitch, transitioning from defence to attack. Additionally losing Conroy was a bitter blow - more of that later.

Again like many, I didnt understood Wellens substitutions at all. Why have 2 centre halves on the bench if you aren't going to use them when the opportunity arises. Also if Grant is moved back, then surely Doughty rather than May is the obvious replacement. I also wouldnt have replaced Woolery who looked our most likely threat other than Isgrove. As an alternative, I would maybe have sacrificed Doyle, who was responsible for their first goal  by losing his marker and where clearly two up front wasn't working as the delivery wasn't there. The Reid switch for Rose was also a strange move and backfired almost instantly, although Fryers was mainly at fault for his weak header and Reid did go on to show some power and pace attacking wise and produced two pretty decent crosses.

Moving forward I fear Conroys injury will be have far more serious consequences than the loss to Newport. He has been superb this season and it's a crushing blow. Unless Broadbent regains his and Wellens confidence in him, we are down to relying on Baudry and Fryers as our only real options, with an untried - and not ready - Curran as back up. Iandolos form has at least meant that we aren't wholly reliant on Fryers as the only left back option. I suspect Wellens will look to pick up an out of contract centre half, although unlikely to be of similar quality to Conroy.

On to Bradford and assuming Anderson and Baudry are back then would go with this team:

McCormick
Hunt Baudry Fryers Iandolo
Rose Grant
Isgrove Doughty Anderson
Yates

Conroy will be out for at least 6 months you would think, massive blow for him and for us!  Sad

On Conroy, does anyone know if it's the same knee as last time? If it is, he's in big trouble. If not, he's just incredibly unlucky.

Callum Wilson came back from multiple ACLs and is playing his best football - it is possible. Rumour has it Dion's isn't a season-ending ACL but we'll hopefully find out today.

On to Bradford. It's a blessing in disguise Doyle can't play as it means we'll probably revert to a 4231.

Hunt Baudry Fryer Iandolo
        Grant Rose
Isgrove Doughty Keshi

The commentator on Saturday seemed to think it was, I couldn't remember which it was he did last time though.

I think by the way he say in tears with his head in his hand I have a feeling it must be the same and that he knew straight away that it was serious again.

If it is the same one then it could be career threatening, which is such a shame for him just as he started to come good.

The Adver suggests its 6 months out.

Yep, Keshi frustrates the hell out of me at times because he's still capable of performing so much better than he typically does, but we've suffered without him this season.

I agree totally, but saying that hes twice the player and half as frustrating as he was last season!

he's looked rejuvenated this season to me.

he's not perfect, but with better players around him he's looking better himself.

imo, obvs

Keshi is out of contract in the summer, he'll need a good season if it's not to be back to non league for him. The penny looks to have dropped.
