Fancy us to beat anyone at home.

Based on the league table it looks like this and Barnsley at home are our 2 toughest games until Xmas (plus Pompey away whenever that gets rearranged to). If we can take 4-6 points from those 2 games, which I think we will, then there’s not much else to worry about in the other 10 or so games or so.

Fingers crossed we get our internationals back with no injury worries and I’ll go with 3-0.

How much game time do you think our international players will actually get?

Can't see that they'll be getting loads.

In the first nine games these have been high scorers and high conceders. Not least in their last game - a 3-6 win at Bristol Rovers. Apparently though Bristol had no fit central defenders. 

If we have any aspirations this type of game has to be a routine home win really.

Anything could happen but I expect a similar sort of game that we had against them Tuesday night back in February.

Was cagey and quite open.

Stylistically, apart from Morecambe, every team we have played so far this season have tried pressing us all the way and to keep the ball.

We have done well against these sorts of styles generally speaking (MK Dons, Peterborough, Charlton, Wycombe) even that first 60 min vs Villa

Them last 3 games we have managed to deal with the press, still control the game (averaging 57% possession) and press them too high.

I have noticed that except from that 2nd half against Ipswich, where we looked gassed after our intense passing. We are working opposition teams intensely, and in the last few matches, them teams look knackered after 70 minutes. Making it better to capitalise upon in the closing stages of the game.

Peterborough and MK Dons in particular, both looked shot and their players were on the floor most of the 2nd half.

Good to see the hard work done by Evatt in pre season looks to be paying dividend so far.

Defining moment of the season. I reckon we can overtake Birmingham and challenge Millwall for the top spot.

Better not draw one of them at home in the FA cup poor old Neil would have a fit probably insist on it being played behind closed doors
