No Raynes in the 18? Assume a knock or ill? McKee back on the bench...

Thought that had slipped under the radar ;)

MG much better suited to CB, but I don't think Ellis at fullback would prove any better.

Hardly a surprise - we've conceded 2 goals in a game again. Really need to get a grip on this defence as soon as possible - winning 3-2 is all well and good when you manage it but not many teams win leagues, or even get promotion, without a solid defence.

Just looked and we've conceded at least 2 goals in 17 separate games this season, in all competitions, including 11 since the start of November.

They are but way too many are being missed of late. Poor defending and finishing will take its toll eventually if they don't sort it.

Trying not to overreact but we're starting to seem a little short of where we need to be.

It's been obvious for weeks that we're struggling defensively, yet the only solid link we've had with a potential signing is a striker. If Kevin Wright isn't getting game time now, when we have no other LB available, I've got to question the reason for signing him at all.

Random, loosely connected thoughts.

Must be overreacting.

Fair comments tbh. Many seem to think that MG is better in the middle of defence. Right now would seem the time to put him in there ( It seems the central defenders have largely been at fault by not doing the basics of just picking up their man in the box) so why isn't he?. Does KC disagree? or as you suggest, does he not have confidence in KW as left back?

Strange, just a few short weeks ago you always felt we would get back in to a game.

That feeling has gone, for me at least. Jones is obviously a big miss, but for me it's Danny G who we are missing the most.
