The Scunny game wont be easy with the form Leeds are showing but hopefully we can put one over on them, and put the bad run of form we're having behind us' starting Sat'' I'm sure we can...And lets hope Grayson, can bring some decent players in!...

It seems a few have convinced themselves this will be easier than our last two matches. Scunny have won their last two and are a big powerful outfit who will test our fagile centre backs. I am hoping for the best but not optimistic.

We need to keep it tight at the back for the first half hour (that wont be easy with our defence). As bad as we have been alately we ares till only four points from the play offs!!! What a strange division.
dazza71
Realistically the play offs are a long way off. Lets consolidate 1st and see what happens
Tiny T
This game is huge, a defeat and we will be nervously looking over our shoulders, a win and despite our recent bad run we will be on the fringes of the play offs. We haven't been playing well, but with key players like Paynter and Parker coming into recognition if we could put the bad run behind us with 3 or 4 wins in a row we will be right in the mix. Lets hope the O'Brien signing can really help the defence out.
