Fisher, Huntington, Davies, Hughes
Potts, Johnson, Barkhuizen
That would not surprise me though hopefully it could give the opposition a very nasty shock.
Ledson must return to the starting line-up - Gallagher can only be used as a stopgap now. Potts has also made a close to irrefutable claim to a starting place.
I would much prefer we continued with Earl at left-back - he gives us an additional attacking dimension. Sure he was given a tough time by that Coventry winger but most fullbacks would have been and the only way he is going to add experience to his talent is by playing. Hughes is good solid back-up but he is not going to get any better than he is now, whereas Earl looks to be set to develop into something special.
As for the main striker it seems close to inevitable that AN will opt for Maguire even in a one-upfront line-up even at home. As I've explained I think that would be a mistake. Sitting deep collecting the ball with his back-to-goal and the playing it on to the likes of Barkhuizen, Sinclair, Johnson or Potts Maguire has shown he can be effective when the aim is to be a counter-attacking side in away games. But at our place when a more proactive, adventurous approach is required that really just does not work - he simply has not got either the presence or the pace to lead the line in that way.
Instead the player to use in those circumstances is Riis. At our place the best use of Maguire is as one of a strike partnership if we opt for that approach or even in one of the wide positions in the '3' with a brief to link up with an overlapping fullback or get up in support of the main striker. I've said before that just as Stockley and Sinclair seem to mesh well together as a strike partnership I have had a feeling that Riis and Maguire might prove an effective double-act - I thought we saw signs of that after Riis came on against Coventry. Yes I know Maguire hassled and harried in the last match to set up the chance that Johnson put away and stuck out his foot to score the second but there have been rather more occasions this season at our place when he has just not been able to make an impact when asked to play upfront by himself. But I daresay he will start and no-one will be more pleased than me if he bags a brace by half-time.
