Three points needed. Oxford are falling like a stone having taken only 3 points from their last 6 games. Our last six meetings with them have resulted in four wins and two draws with no losses. If we win we are just one point behind them. Pereira to start, score three and then get sent off.

I would play McWilliams instead of Grimes with a higher line to support and give him options when he wins possession. I actually quite like Grimes but I think itís a case of Crooks or Grimes. Right from the start of the season many identified we need a leader on the pitch who can run a game and break up play. We are still short on that but at least McWilliams will bring more of that missing steel and protection in front of the back four. Comes with risk but I think we need to try and bring a bit extra to our performances. Our recent good results seem to be due to the opposition being below par as much as us being too good on the day? If we keep things as we are I feel we might be a point or 2 short come May, especially with our goal difference. Need to play a higher line though, our back four are mobile enough to cope with it, just a bit worried about the defensive decision making of Bunney due to the discipline playing a higher line would need? Having gone to a play off contender and come away with a point I know all this seems excessive, but these home loses against fellow strugglers have to somehow be addressed.

Well done Frank at least you had the courage to pin this fixture on here. Hope Aribiyi starts and yes wouldn't mind Berto too. Can see him leading Oxford a merry dance. Perhaps Rauldinho can forecast (accurately) team for Sat. One thing for certain it won't be easy, we are bound to be edgy after the last two home games. Perhaps vV will lead the line. Don't take any rubbish from Dc Feelgood!

Let's hope they don't have a new manager by Saturday.

I see Craig Bellamy is 1/5, I know he was interviewed for the Welsh job but would be a left field appointment

Take 3 points on Satdee and Oxford will have well and truly joined the party. Any 3 teams currently in the bottom ten to join Bury I think.

We have to stop conceding goals at an alarming rate .
If Bunney and Turnbull were JED signings they would be dropped .
It would be great to see McWilliams back in midfield but he will not drop crooks or grimes .
Ariyibi should start wide left but no one has gripped the wide right position.
Hopefully VV will start .
We have to win this game

We struggle with the easier games so I think we'll lose. Then beat Blackpool and Rovers away.

Blackpool are easier than Oxford  Tongue

But in all seriousness, Blackpool has to be up there with Southend for worst performances from an away side at Sixfields this season (and Oxford worst opposition on a Cobblers away day?).

Hoping Pereira starts on Saturday. Looked absolute class in a spells vs Gillingham.

Blackpool away is surely more difficult than Poxford at home. Poxford have lost 6 out of 7.. Wink

Apart from his running with the ball (a rarity for us) his ability to hold up the play with his chest (a la Akinfenwa) seen against Gillingham was an asset. JJ in with Grimes with Pereira in front of them as a link to Long/KvV. 1-3-5-1-1

Iíve completely given up on trying to keep track of the progress of any of our injuries - Jimmyís now saying that van veen has a sore knee but Iím sure he was originally out with a knock to the hip. As for facey I just hope that it doesnít turn into the kind of absence that Powell had last year where he was 50/50 for about 8 weeks.

Perhaps you could do it instead for a change? Seeing as you are always at the games, I think you should be able to do a splendid job of it.

Something like this Evers...

              Rod
    Poole Taylor Turnball
Moloney              Bunney
     JJ Grimes Ariyibi
          Pereira
            Long

Cornell
K v Veen
Powell
Hoskins
Mc Williams
Barnett
Crooks

This leaves out Foley, Bridge , Mathis etc. If no v Veen Foley on the bench.

I think Oxford have two young inexperienced full backs on loan. Let's try to exploit that.
