First topic message reminder :

I just get a sense that tonight is a going to a pivotal game... opponents that are, on paper, on slightly weaker than us, a team though that serious promotion contenders should expect to beat. 

For the last few seasons we have always seemed to struggle with the mid-to-low table teams and when I look back at the points tally at the end of the season, it's dropped points against the likes of Preston that are so disappointing. 

Now I know Preston are a solid team, hard to beat and they've had a good start to the season, but I feel we need to be beating these types of teams, as well as the favoured clubs, to really give it a go this year.

If we win tonight, we'll be putting down a real marker.

1 down, free kick apparently. 45 minutes plus injury time to go and we have a habit of scoring late

...although we are unlikely to get anything from the game at 3 down! Sounds like Etheridge has had a bit of a 'mare. I think Warnock may be keen to see Camp make his debut. Talksh*te however have said Preston are well on top just to rub a bit of salt into the wound!

Yeah, bad night but we've got a home game to come next so hopefully should be back to our best again.

Etheridge -
First goal wasn't a free kick but he should have saved it.
Second goal - beaten at near post.
Third goal - miskicked a clearance when closed down by a player who was yards offside. Great first time shot but it looked as if he might have saved that as well.

Sheff Wed have won a few on the bounce now after a slow start.

I think Manga, Bryson and Richards need to come in and possibly Ward for Zohore as well

Well we were going to lose eventually, lessons will be learned though etc

If we can get maybe 4 points over the next two, things will still be on track

I think it will be fine, Neil just needs to mix it up by giving a few of the newer guys a run

I'm surprised by the performance, but sounds like a "bad day at the office". shock

Rather fortunately, I wasn't able to see the game, instead enjoying a very pleasant meal in the pub in the village where Don Murray was born.

Very open assessment by NW on WO this morning about not changing a winning team, even if they were knackered.

The Duffus Inn?

Looks like Ward is going to shake things up. I think it's been an excellent start by players like Loïc Damour who has come from a lower level and with someone like Bryson waiting it makes sense to give people a rest
