Two games in three days that could just be make or break for us this season. We could really do with three points on Saturday to go into the Oldham game full of confidence.

We beat them at the begining of the season & came back from a goal down to win 1-2 ,so can't see why we can't beat them at our Fortress. Scunny av lost their last 3 games so lets make it 4 & make it a miserable february for them. Hope Howson starts I think He'll work well with Beckford. Dare I say it 3-0.
