They're one of the most underwhelming clubs in the football league, whilst there are plenty of examples over the last 20 years, this is another club we should be streets ahead of, yet they've had numerous times in the second tier over us in that time. Think they've now found their natural level and will Bob about the lower leagues. 3-1 Town

An injury of some description
A silly yellow/red/penalty of some description

In that pre match interview above, I reckon there were at least 10 of them!  Pint

Too many injuries and too weak in defence still, can't see past a defeat.

Who do we actually have in defence then, Brennan and presumably Clayton has to start? Ellis continuing at left back, Hutton at right back?

I'm assuming that Tomlinson and Devine aren't fit.

I did think Kadji/Cain did a better job of providing cover to the defence vs Newport than we generally have this season (helps that there were two of them rather than just Khan trying to do it himself), but it's still hardly inspiring.

Donny aren't very good at all, surely we can eek out a draw JJ?

They beat Tranny on Tuesday 2-0. They are 2 points behind us on the same number of games.

Last 6 games - Swindon  W2 D1 L3
Last 6 games - Doncaster W3 D0 L3

I just don't think we strengthened the defence enough in the window to cope with Baudry, Devine, Harries, Lavinier, FBT and Tomlinson(ironically) missing and MacDonald sold, then having to play Iandolo at LB and a not fully fit Clayton and Brennan in the middle.

I think we can win it, but  JJ and the injury list make a compelling point/
Khan is still suspended too right? (2nd red)

That's fair enough, I'm only really repeating what a Donny fan has been saying on a different forum and apparently they were very fortunate to win on Tuesday - irrelevant I know as 3 points is 3 points.

I agree with you about strengthening. Can you imagine if we hadn't managed to get Tomlinson over the line as well? (well aware he is currently unavailable due to knack) I reckon FBT will be ok for Saturday, an illness is not likely to keep him out. (our medical team might disagree mind you) If he is missing, then yeah we are up against it. Clayton played 30 minutes last Saturday, but he might not yet be ready for the full 90, we might have to thrown Minturn into the mix also.

Actually no idea if Khan is in or out - "ends 11th" on EFL site, Inclusive or exclusive?

RHM is ends 18th, I assume violent conduct is 3 matches, therefore it must be inclusive and so no Khan.
No doubt the LS pod will confirm when I listen.

So we think we're missing: RHM and Khan (suspended), then Harries, Baudry, Tomlinson, Devine, Lavinier, Shade, Brann and perhaps FBT injured/ill? That'd be ten first team pros out, which is quite the list. Have to be realistic and say most clubs would struggle in that position. Not signing another defender on deadline day really looks to have been a fuck up.
