It is a funny old game having beaten our opponents twice this season but it is they who are ahead of us in the league and firmly ensconced in the play-offs. Perhaps it goes to show how the impact of injuries on the squad this season has seen us significantly lower in the table than we would otherwise have been.
Not that the play-offs are something that is now unobtainable and doing the “treble” over Borehamwood could give an entirely different complexion to our season. The good news is that Longridge is fit for this game with just bruising on his knee as opposed to ligament damage. I am wondering whether it is worth putting Wynter as a wing back and Whitfield either in advanced midfield or up front with Reid as I feel he may be able to give their three huge central defenders more problems.
About half of the games were called off in the National league today but interestingly Notts County, our opponents on Tuesday are going great guns at the moment and beat Eastleigh 4-0 at home today. I suspect they will want to play on Tuesday, even though it will be their third Tuesday in a row. Looking at the table, they have a chance now of winning the league. I suspect our club will want this game on next week with cash flow now going to be severely affected. Advice from the government could well change for gatherings over 500 by next weekend and it is clear that this season will be severely disrupted or even curtailed.
The first to present his case seems right, till another comes forward and questions him.
