Barky coming on after 65 minutes could work well though.Potts starts in mid field ...surprising that Seani starts too as I thought Barkhuizen may have been a better option to attack a Forest who sit back and generally hit you on a break...first goal crucial on this one
The fact that they sit deep means Barky won't have the space to run into- Seani can at least use his skill to make a little.Potts starts in mid field ...surprising that Seani starts too as I thought Barkhuizen may have been a better option to attack a Forest who sit back and generally hit you on a break...first goal crucial on this one
Forest will also be perfectly happy with 0-0.First goal absolutely vital today. If they get it then it will be a long game for us. If we get it then it forces them out a bit and we can hit them on the break.
Really hoping we can exploit the combined talents of Sinclair and Stockley as we did mid-week.It should be 4-4-2, because Sinclair and Stockley looked like they paired up well. But everywhere I looked its 4231, I really hope he's learnt from Midweek. Don't waste the pairing of Sinclair, Potts and Stockley.
If Stockley plays 90 minutes of football with his back to their goal we'll struggle. He has to be facing their goal and driving towards it to be anywhere near effective.Again AN does not quite do what you expect. The good thing is that Stockley and Sinclair are starting and so is Johnson. My guess is that we will see plenty of balls up to Stockley for him to knock down with any of Sinclair, Potts and Maguire looking to latch on but also find Johnson looking to thread balls through for the forwards to run onto. The width is likely to come from Rafferty and Hughes since neither Sinclair not Potts is a winger. The key factor may well be how many balls Stockley can win but after Wednesday he is bound to be up for it in every sense.
