Agree that keeping it simple is the way to go today with the weather taking a hand. Keeping it on the ground and playing it out from the back (get the glasses handy, Notty) may be the only way to retain a modicum of control!
Any idea how the Wham stadium is oriented WRT wind direction if the match goes ahead??
Spotland has previous, I recall once being in the Regal Moon oblivous to the rain and when we headed to Spotland we were greeted by folk walking away from the ground, grumbling "match off". Another time made it as far as having a few pints in the sorely missed Church, when someone piped up "Match Off!" .
Accy is a bit windswept but the playing surface drains better than Spotland, despite thier proximity. I recall watching the Imps at Accy in a torrential down pour once. Hopefully its game on.
Safe travel to everyone today.
I agree with Bristolimp, I'd play another one or two experienced heads today their place, Freck/Bossie/Pett if fit and bring the young legs on later. I fear If we play the same side we used against MKD (Morrell excluded) we will lose.
Let’s hope Accrington intend to field 30% of their outfield players that have no match fitness and have recently suffered long term injuries, in this game which will all be about battling and physical effort.
Personally, looking for a pretty settled side, as we continue the very early stages of the development of the team. I temper my great optimism that we are well run with people in charge who know what we are trying to achieve, with the knowledge that the early stages will be the most difficult.
I shall ask myself after every 10/15 games if I can see any progress.
First 15 games of MA reign saw us go from 6-0 defeats to beating Ipswich and Peterborough.
We are just in the second section, having reset with a whole new squad. Expect a slow but steady improvement by May, although with ups and downs.
