I probably would
Huntington(if not fit then Wright)
Stuckmann, Wright(King if Hunts not fit), Wiseman, Kilkenny, Humphrey, Little, Davies.
Sounds good to me. 3-5-2 was played today with a draw in mind. Both teams were happy to settle. I was disappointed we didn't play particularly well but that's the formation for ya. Back to 4-4-2/4-3-3.
I can understand that Grayson wanted to match up Bristol City today but the 3-5-2, whilst effective away from home, has not served us well at home. I wonder how many home games we have actually won with that formation? (I can think of a few where we started 3-5-2 and switched to 4-4-2 when it wasn't working).
If I remember correctly we beat a side 1-0 through a Jack King header. In a very unremarkable tie. That's the only game I remember us winning without reverting to another formation. Reason being they were very poor whoever they were.
We beat Oldham 1-0 at home through a Jack King goal back in August, and it was a terrible, terrible game. We played 4-2-3-1 though not 3-5-2.
You're right! I got confused with a fixture exactly a year earlier against Bristol. Where King scored and it ended 1-0. I'm not entirely sure which fixture it was that I'm thinking of which we won with the 3-5-2.
Grayson has to send a team out that will smash 3-5 goals in, whilst also freshening up any tired areas.
Expect Wiseman, Woods, Kilkenny or Robinson to start.
I thought that Wiseman's brief appearance today showed why he shouldn't start. He plays the safe/ soft option every time and defensively gets caught ball watching.
In contrast Robinson, who came on as a sub at the same time, played very well.
Forgot he came on to be honest mate, I reckon my nans shites could do better!
Oh, and here is the team I want on Tuesday
Woods-Huntington(if not fit wright)-clarkey (c)-laird
Beckford/Davies (even though he can't hit a cows arse with a banjo, he will play well against shite teams like gillingham)
Formation : 4-2-3-1
Wright if hunts is back if he is then Kilkenny
I`m sure that Beckford/Davies would/will play well against Gillingham and the Whites should be strong favourites to beat the Gills. As a Preston based Gills supporter I would, however, say that the Gills are a far more positive playing team than when Preston beat them at Priestfield earlier this season. PNE deserved that win though Gillingham created quite a few chances in the first.
On Tuesday expect Gilingham to field an attacking line-up with McDonald and Marquis (or Norris) up front. I expect that PNE will win, they are a very good side and a much better footballing side than the Gills. Don`t be surpised though if they (GFC) get a couple of goals !
