Foley's doubtful with a back injury. Sordell is out with medial knee ligament injury.

Up next Crawley Town 3pm kick-off. The Saints are also at home with a 2pm kick-off, so traffic will be busy around the Sixfields area and parking more of a nightmare than normal.

Ollie Palmer and Aaron Pierre will reacquaint themselves with each other after the feisty game before Christmas when Palmer saw red.

Same again for Cobblers?

Do you mean the style of play used the last two games or playing 1 up front being negative (or both)?

There is nothing negative about playing 1 up front as long as the team's general style is positive and the 2 attacking midfielders behind the striker (and to some extent the wing-backs) are given enough freedom. That's often more attacking than a standard 3-5-2 IMO

I agree with the gist of your post - by the sounds of it the tactics worked well at tranmere and Lincoln but we didnt create a great deal in either match. In that system the onus is on bridge and jjot to support Hoskins but there is a real fear of Sam becoming isolated especially in a home game. Also the wing backs become very important and to be fair to buchs he has already been found wanting going forward from that position. We havent had an injury update this week but I think facey went off with a thigh strain last Saturday so Id assume that one of the McWilliams boys will have to fill in? I havent heard any update on foley either.

Hi all out there in help land,

I can't seem to embed videos on here - is there a simple thing I'm missing? (Assuming yes!)

If anyone can help, let me know  Smiley

upload it to youtube, then simply copy and paste the link.

It will have to be hosted externally even if you don't want to use Youtube specifically. Most hosting sites will have an option for "BB code" , simply copy and paste this code directly into your post.

Id like us to get to 50points. Once achieved, ONLY PLAYERS who KC is going to keep next season, get to play. Absolutely pointless playing out the last 4/6/8 games trying to grind out results (optimistic thinking is that we secure safety with a few games to spare) just to tick boxes because finishing 8th warrants the same end result as finishing 22nd.

If I was the manager, pre-season would start the moment we hit 50points. Lets get a heads start on most of our rivals! If Powell isn't going to be offered a contract (for example), he's left out. etc.


Fully agree with this, lets get safe then treat the rest of the games as early pre-season. That includes dishing out new contracts to those who we want and who want to stay. Anyone who is deemed surplus to requirements should be removed from the first team for the remainder, that includes training.

There is no "ladder effect" of payments due to league position.
Here's what the club gets irrespective of position in their respective league.
Basic award across the EFL:
Championship 2.084m.
League 1 677,000.
League 2 472,000.

Premier League Solidarity payment across the EFL:
Championship 4.3m
League 1 645,000.
League 2 430,000

so as a L1 club we got 1.32m our relegation means we now get 902k net loss of 430k OUCH.

Barring a miracle (which didn't happen) this season was screwed after 10 games.

Austin was a liability, certain players were also culpable but either way, my only hope and expectation for Curlio was to steer us to mid table and I believe he will.

Beyond that, he has to be given a close season to try and sort things out. He is as capable as anyone we can hope to get so lets give him the chance

He's contracted till the end of next season so that's the basics of the situation.

Was absolutely the right man for the job to keep us up but beyond that, not a great deal to suggest he is a longer term prospect for us (yet). His go-to formation, 3-5-2, was annihilated by Colchester in every way. His response has been to fill the side with the most reliable, sturdy players. It's pretty basic stuff.

One option might have been to give him a contract till the end of the season and then re-assess but he had the nap hand when we were in big trouble.

Think there has been only 1 back to back victory in Curle's time here and that included a dire Macclesfield side. Show some cohesive, expansive football, some tactical fluidity and a couple of back to back wins and then he'll be a contender. Just giving a manager the summer and hoping will likely end up with us back to square one as it has done for as long as I can remember.
