Before the Bradford game I thought we would lose because we didnít look like we could score goals & didnít look like we could keep a clean sheet and we did both.

At least now we look like we can score goals, albeit not sure we can be confident of keeping a clean sheet.

Midfield will be important, and itís where we look light.

So based on that Iím going for a score draw

I think we lose this one 2-1 with the curse of the former player kicking us in the nuts.

Khan fine and dandy. Cain coming off was tactical. Johnson has a bit of a niggle and will be used a LB and/or CB when fit.

Hope make a better fist if this than we did their empty echo chamber. I doubt weíll go 0-3 down but I think another draw is more likely or a narrow win as an outside bet.

Looks like the home fan attendance is gonna be less than the Salford game. That's disappointing.

550 to 600 is their average away following at Swindon sometimes as low as 300 back in 2014, even when they were going for the promotion in 2015 and were above us in the tabel they only brought 800 odd.

Poorly supported team TBH for only a 70 mile trip.

As we have said before, these figures are for tickets sold, not those actually in attendance.

Does that matter? If a ticket has been sold itís been sold.

assume last year was a few hundred higher.

so is it on the slide due to mediocrity then, or just normalising from post COVID highs.

edit, actually, ignoring home and away split this site suggests we are only a couple of hundred down on last season total attendance?!
