Didnt attend but remember winning £55 off a £5 bet. That's how much of a shock result it was.

The only match i saw that season...living in Kent then...epic result as Charlton only needed a point to go up into the Prem that day.

Last couple of visits to the Ďoss breeders have been memorable.
Late goals from Obika to secure a win and a draw.

The Easter 2013 visit was also memorable if only for the turgid nature of the performance.

A similar start to the last away game but taking the chances this time would be ideal.
Have a feeling that it might be a case of cometh the hour tonight with The Hitman coming off the bench to leap like a salmon and head the winner in added time.

Weíll need to a play a blinder tonight. A bit like these former Doncastrians.

Nobbad that. Reminds me of Reverend & The Makers. There's a definite South Yorkshire sound isn't there.

He also has the option of playing Conroy in the DMC position with 4 across the back too.

Like the look of that side, Hope isn't the ideal focal point but he'll put the effort in. COYR.

Doubt that, a midfield of only Payne and Smith is extremely unlikely for me, Conroy into midfield perhaps?

Thats why I said about Conroy at DMC, without Grant there is no protection of the defence in that midfield, Payne, DJ, Hope and the 2 Smiths are all very attack minded.

That role is not alien to Dion at all, he has played there with varying success previously.

I was typing as you were posting so didn't see that until after, added a quote subsequently.

Nominally 5 centre-halves in that side. 

We're rolling in them!

And yet still room on the bench for Curran. You wonder what Haines and the others have to do to get a look-in.

I thought Grant would be rested tonight.
Just need to keep it tight first half and go from there.

Midfield always the most important part of the team. We are more fucked tonight than usual.
