"This used to be a potent weapon in our armoury and we need to achieve more successes from such openings.":

"Grant has talent with this as evidenced in the Peterborough home game but often it is frustrating to see the corners and free-kicks not getting past the first defender. This used to be a potent weapon in our armoury and we need to achieve more successes from such openings."

"Nigel always produces some quality signings and has got Albion playing some good passing football." (Who Are Ya?):

"Albion constantly have to fight against the odds against much bigger clubs in terms of budget and infrastructure but Nigel always produces some quality signings and has got Albion playing some good passing football. Nigel is a good man-manager and knows how to get the best out of his players."

Another hard game today. Burton have won six and drawn four on the road although they have only won one of their last six. Hopefully we can build on the Gillingham display. A great opportunity for young Scully to make his mark and hopefully two weeks working with Hopper will have started a partnership. Add in Sheehan Bossy and Bridcutt, we now have the right sort of experience. UTI 👊💥

I'll be setting off about 10 and will have a lardy breakfast on the way just after Dunham Bridge, then to the pub. I cannot see where goals are going to come from so a draw....I hope I am proved wrong and we get a hatful.

A draw is always ok when you are edging towards safety, but in all honesty this looks the most winnable of the next few so we could really do with the full 3 points.

Just thinking the same thing, it is tough being an Imp downunder. I will be up at 2.00am watching it live on iFollow and hoping for a good game that ends in a win for us.
11pm KO for me in Perth (10pm for the hour-long preamble from Radio Lincs). Don’t know why but I’m really looking forward to this one. Hopefully the players have had a good couple of weeks building a better understanding and will be raring to go.

I see that their keeper has been banned for 6 games (starting today) for biting the Peterborough striker. Mind you, we’ll still need to get a shot away regardless of who’s in goal!

That's the interesting bit - will there be a similar reaction to two weeks off as last time?

We beat Burton on the 7th that day; today we play Burton on the 7th...
