One we really have to win. One of the few clubs within lasso distance of our up-the- map location at least being above geographically if naught else. There seem to be indications of good spirit in the Unibol if reports are to be believed. At em lads....

It's stating the obvious, but only a win will do today.

Buzzing for today. Finished work yesterday afternoon for a fortnight. Beers and Shed 7 last night. Hills resurgent Wànderers at 3pm.

4-1 win. Verlinden and Dodoo tear them a new one in a swashbuckling display of attacking football.

Failing that. A 1-0 win with a 94th minute og will do just as nicely.

What I find incredible about today's fixture is that despite us having been beaten 5-0, 5-0, 5-0, 6-1 and 7-1 this season, and despite us having scored just eleven league goals in return, our goal difference is still better than theirs.

I don't care if this is the scrappiest game in the history of all football, nothing but a win will do today. I honestly don't care how they go about it.

We really are lacking in something s a side. We defend Moss Bank Park style and don't even look like scoring. Come on lads, get a grip, this is reality not Subuteo. :(

Our worst first half performance with 11 men by some distance.

Their no7. How good is he and what's he doing playing for them?

So many misplaced passes and miscontrolled touches. They aren't doing it on purpose so it makes me wonder if we're trying to play a way we aren't suited to. Rather than attempting to get through teams I think we'd be better off just getting it wide high up the pitch as quickly as possible.

Shite 30 mins, better after then 2-1 thanks to a Luke Murphy wonder goal.

God knows what possessed Hill to start Verlinden on the right and Dodoo on the left. Switched wings and we started to be the better team.

Has a manager ever got a booking before?

I've known them be sent off but never to be yellow-carded.

I get the thinking behind Bridcutt playing as centre half but if his passing is off, or hes being closed down quickly as it/he has been, then it doesn't work.

Emmanuels form has taken a rather alarming dip too.

45 minutes to either put it right or hang onto what we've got
