Lets not take any silly risks in the final two games, if anyones carrying a knock give them a rest and if someone looks like they might get sent off bring them off quickly.

Lets pass and move. We dont need any rough stuff at this time in the season. I am sure even now players will be trying to wind Beckford up.
