    Having categorically telling my lad that there was no way in hell I would be going due to the piss poor performance we had to endure at Morecambe, I succumbed to buying tickets with them being relatively cheap. Kind of regretting it now but it is what it is, let's just hope we get a minor miracle. If there's any straws I can clutch at, it's that Wrexhams defence are leakier than ours!

    If he rests OkiDoki and Kelly, then at least we go to a back 4 and away from this god-awful formation that he's trying to implement

    The 3 centre-backs/2 wing backs system has proved extremely frustrating thus far, and is sending everyone to sleep

    Hoping to see another away allocation tonight. Can't wait!

    The last few home games have seen plenty of goals, mainly to Foster being far too old that his body can no longer cope. The last home game V Swindon typified that, when he came out and said he was to retire again. Now we have Mark Howard in goal who is no spring chick at 36 (turns 37 in a few weeks) but is competent for what we need. Defence is ok (honest....) but our midfield trio lets them down and we normally let you run at us whilst wondering through said midfield and we have no answer for it.

    I'd imagine we'd have a shake up at the back with Hayden or Tunnicliffe making an appearance in defence. Hayden scored 11 or 12 goals before he got injured against Sheff U in the 4th round of the cup. An incredible leap to win headers. Just what we are missing from Tozers long throw.

    Forward line i'd imagine it'd be Palmer and Bickerstaff (a 21 kid who has come through the ranks) - the latter being described by Parky as the best finisher at the club. He didn't do that on the weekend when he tickled the ball at the keeper with a glorious 1 on 1 situation against Barrow away.

    If he plays three at the back tonight we will get battered. The only chance of a decent result is to drop Kelly (unless his injury keeps him out) and re-instate Halliday with the other new lad at LB. If he brings in Taylor for Kelly or plays a less than fit Kelly we could be three down before everyone takes a seat.

    My son was out for a walk today and met up with Jamie Walker. Apparently he is not injured but obviously not involved tonight. Not sure what time they set off but this was about 11.

    The view is crap. Next doors dormer window obscures a quarter of the pitch.
