I know Oteh nicked a goal….and I’ve been saying he’s been underused for weeks but I actually thought he was really poor Saturday.
But what he and Hutch did in the wide areas defensively more than anything makes replacing one of them just to get DJ back in the side nonsensical.
It literally risks unbalancing everything that was good about the performance.
On the ball I actually thought Tierney was really wasteful Saturday and I thought it was Hutch’s least effective game in an attacking sense for weeks (EDIT : just watched ext highlights and he was actually involved in both our first two goals getting between the lines to release draper for the first and winning the flick on for Otehs from the corner) but all 3 of them gave us shape and energy in our defending.
There’s no way adding DJ and going 442 makes that side better.
I’m lost if we will win loose or draw this one , not sure if things will change or this will be a season of inconsistency ,we got a team capable of beating anyone in this league but depends on manager formation and who decides to turn up on the day ,who knows anymore🤷♂️
Only behind them in the table on goal difference - absolutely no reason to be fearing them like some were with Bradford (who we are now above). So long as we manage to keep 11 players on the pitch we have enough to beat them.
Happy to leave the team selection, formation and tactics up to Sadler.
I think it’s going to depend on MS, if he sticks to what he did on Saturday we have a great chance if he reverts back god knows, probably a draw at best.
It would be lovely to beat them so we can go to struggling Sutton full of confidence.
