Simply a game that the management can't afford to lose. I'll take a draw, but hope for the win. A loss will make this a very long season.

I wonder if Trollope might go for Whitts over Immers, but otherwise the same starting lineup as at Norwich.

Whitts did appear to make a telling difference with some of his crosses into the box, but leaving him in deep midfield just leaves us so exposed.

Agree, though - six points ideally from next four days; four points at the very least.

Two changes. Manga in for Connolly. Huws for Immers.

The players replaced are on the bench, so Trollope favouring squad rotation.

Massive T-storm here, was 0 - 0 when the lights went out, now 0 - 2 WTF??

You may be right about 0 - 6, but Doyle will have to get them all in the second half.

Not a lot you can say after that debacle........

Management has got its work cut out getting some sort of shape and cutting edge into this team.

Trollope changed the team shape twice tonight and we still never looked like scoring. We also conceded 3 goals to a side which only had 4 in the previous 6 games.

This has the feel of the OGS era all over again.........

i've seen nothing of yesterday's game yet other than the scoreline, so difficult to comment.

Leeds is near enough a must-win now.

The game reports and Trollope's own comments are damning enough, without looking at the carnage that is being unleashed on the other boards.

I'm not sure that Leeds is a must-win game, but the performance of the team needs to be improved massively.

.

It makes you wonder if Trollope has the backing of the players, after his comments regarding lack of commitment and hunger it may be he hasn't. I hope that isn't the case.

Certainly a lot of work to be done to turn around what could be a disastrous season.
