If you were like me you'd have forgotten that we are back in the saddle tomorrow night. Our first venture into the Johnstones Paint Pot Trophy. Dave at Drinking During the Game
goes of tangent superbly in this preview here
Barnet are our opponents, who we've only ever played in cup competitions, the last time in 1995. We were a tier one team in those days and 4,400 came out early in the season, and at a fiver to get in I wonder if we will exceed that? Supporters' at least have the knowledge that we have to play a minimum of 6 first team regulars, which for us is quite easy to work out as only 13 players have started league games this season. So who would you leave out?
Surely it has to come down to who needs to rest. Shelvey, Burton, Sam, Racon, Bailey and Dailly must all come into this category. Sodje will now be in Abuja, the capital of Nigeria in preparation for their weekend's world cup qualifier against Mozambique. Yado Mambo played for the U18's on Saturday perhaps in readiness of a call up. Miguel Llera should start to allow the Spaniard to put last week's Colchester game behind him. Other options to start include Luke Holden, Leon McKenzie (if fit), Scott Wagstaff, Chris Solly, Grant Basey, Tamer Tuna and Izale McLeod.
No CAFC Player for me tomorrow as I am meant to be on a boat, weather permitting. Good luck to those going along for what will be the first of three consecutive home games.
