Evening all  Busted

After the enjoyment of an easy 3 points at the weekend, we face a tougher game at Gresty Road on Tuesday. One bonus is they have lost 3 games on the bounce.

I'll go for a  score draw 1-1.

1-2 to us. Winner in injury time by TB, after which he is nominated fora knighthood.

On the face of it I think it will be another scrappy game. The good thing about playing away is that the emphasis will be on Crewe to attack.

Defensively we look much better but itís had a major impact on our attacking ability. There is too much space between midfield and attack with our strikers really looking isolated up front. As a result itís been hard watching Swindon play this season (even though we have beaten two of our local rivals).

I am hoping the comeback of some of our key first team players will help improve things going forward but I think the game against Crewe will be another low quality affair with both teams playing tight and hoping to knick a goal. I can see the game ending 1-0 either way.

Before yesterday I wasn't sure this squad had the minerals to dig in and get results, possibly should have known better after Rovers but now I'm full of confidence that we can pick up positive results on a more regular basis, even if it needs to be ugly.

That said it will be tough at Crewe. The bounce from Saturday should give the lads huge boost of confidence. Hopeful Sheridan's more simplistic style will enable us to grind out a point or better.

1-1 draw and probably another set of fans calling us the worst team in the league.

Fucking love it. Straight out the piss stains copybook  Cheesy

Remember when Lincoln kept being called one of the worst playing sides, a couple seasons ago? Well they went up off the back of it. I think people forget that a team (depending on personnel obviously) can change their style of play too.

After Saturday Sheridan may well see 442 as the way to go. If so, then expect Super Tom to start up top with Smith T.

Sure, itís not what weíre used to, especially after last season, but if the shoe fits . . .

I wonder if the two up top, one knocking it on and one chasing in behind will see a fruitful Bret ĎHitmaní Pitman & Tyler Smith partnership at some point.

Possibly but also think Tyler would be helped by having DJ and Payne out wide to link play up with touch and go passes.
Rather than J Smith and Stevens who are more slalom runners, which has its uses but leaves Tyler isolated

I've said before about the "worst team we have played so far" comments. Our manager left early in the season, we have had a number of injuries. We have good enough players in all positions, just need to settle and cut out the errors. I think we'll be fine. I'd be more concerned if we weren't scoring.

we can be everyone's "worst team we have played so far", as long as we pick up points

Given Crewe's style and our selection issues, I'd go with:
           
                 Kovar
Hunt Odimayo Grounds Donohue
                 Grant
  Stevens   Smith  DJ  Payne
                 Tyler

The midfield 4 would have to try and dominate the ball as best as possible, and be responsible defensively. It might be a bit expansive for Shez's liking.

As far as I remember they just said he was "injured" nothing else was said of type of injury or possible length of absence.

Itís not whether you get knocked down, itís whether you get up.

We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.
