We need to make sure our defence turn up, I really am dreading the centre backs against Hulse, Villa and Ellington!
dazza71
Lets hope that this game they wake up not just the defence we need to put some of these chances in the back of the net aswell, Lets hope Beckford is ok we missed him against Northampton Big time, Still cant understand why Macca thinks our defence is ok he should be looking at bringing a decent centre back in to steady the ship Good luck boys for tonight fingers crossed MOT....
