Minefields and banana skins.V Oldham Athletic away Tues 2nd March 7'O clock.

Time to focus and concentrate. Oldham have won two and lost two out of five, we've won five in a row. Means not a thing in this league where anything can happen. We need to be on our guard and Harry Kewell won't want to lose at home. We're a big scalp, so ....COME ON YOU WHITES..... :oyea: :oyea:

Go for it....

Big game. Huge. Probably take a point but 3 would be lovely. I've been to Oldham many times and don't think I've ever seen us win there more than once.....not a ground with lots of good memories. Sort of wish I could go tomorrow though, one of my favourite aways.

Next three games 7 points would be lovely. Six would also be decent but I am nervous that we’ll lose one and not win again for a bit.

Tough game and we're playing to really fine margins so could easily go either way. 1-1 draw.

Yes, it's all simply down to us assuming that the rest of the contenders will keep winning, and there's no guarantee that will happen. I 've never been a big fan of stat predictions; too many factors can determine things: injuries, loss of form, weather, poor officials (mot many Pierre Luigi Collinas about these days) and sheer bad luck. We've just got to realise purple patches can't be ordered like pizza takeaways, you just keep fighting till the whistle blows and fortunately, with the side we have we seem able to do that and stay strong right through. In short, it's in our own hands and we're in with a better shout than for a fair while, so...COME ON YOU WHITES.... :oyea: :oyea:

More seriously though, love a win but a draw and staying unbeaten would be quite acceptable. Then beat Bradford.

Interesting to note that Evatt mentioned (2:25) a reserve team friendly (or U23s as he called them) tomorrow against Blackburn- I assume it’s their U23s

He specifically names Brockbank as one who will get some minutes in that game, so not displacing Jones at RB just yet.

Will be interesting to see who else plays in that game if that info is disclosed.

It should be a more open game than Saturday, but hard to say whether that's a good or bad thing. I'll plump for 'good' given the relative solidity of our defence these days and the attacking talent we're able to call upon.

Wouldn't be agin that line-up - I might be tempted to go with Thomason instead of Sarce, but don't think Evatt would make that call. They're pretty attacking, in the top couple of goalscoring teams only Exeter scored more, so keeping them occupied down their end of the pitch will help and they have a very leaky defence conceding more than anyone else in the Division. I would be wondering if Maddison was too ill to make the bench on Saturday, whether he'd be in line for a start maybe play Thomason and push Sarce to where you have Maddison. Feels to me like we need someone in front of MJ and Lee who can distribute better and switch. Could see them scoring one maybe two as they did at ours, so we'll need at least two and maybe three, to beat them.

There's really nothing to compare previous encounters/seasons with; different players all round even for Oldham, so comparison is a bit fruitless, and we're eight places and nine points to the better anyway, which must be an indication of some sort, so let's be positive and get at em... They leak a few goals, so we just need a tight defence and some patience and.....3-0 to us. Believe it.... ae:)

Thomason I would have personally brought on for Williams on Saturday, as that was more the type of game we could have afforded to sacrifice some defensive solidity. With Oldham likely to come onto us I think the Lee and Williams combination offers more defensive protection and is most likely what Evatt will opt for (if both are fit).

Dapo definitely looked much more effective on the right against Barrow and I'd like to see him tried there from the off tonight. Maddison wasn't brought in to sit on the bench, so if he's fit I think should be given another chance to show what he can do as a starter. I quite like Isgrove and think he's a solid League Two player, but he didn't have his best game on Saturday and think will be rotated out this evening. I'd also be happy to see Arthur start, but IE doesn't seem to view him as a 90 minute player.

Edit: I would also not be averse to giving either Miller or Fonz a go as the starting striker, but think it's extremely unlikely to happen.

I firmly predict that this will be the most boring match of the season, a 0-0 draw in sub zero conditions on an appalling pitch. To be honest, I'd be absolutely delighted with a point and a clean sheet.

I'd be tempted to rest Doyle and start with Miller. The team news will be interesting solely to see if Madison really was poorly, or if he decided to stay by his mobile as the big Fendi clearance sale had started.
