Pre-match views from the Match Thread:

clanfordimp: “They are 13 points from safety so are probably down, just unfortunate that they have just had a couple of decent results against Stevenage and Peterborough but prior to that they had lost their previous 12 out of 13 games!

A win isn’t imperative but we are playing a team bottom of the league and with Oxford at home to Fleetwood and Stevenage having a slightly trickier trip to Charlton we really could do with the 3 points to keep the pressure up on those two.

Should have that bit better balance to the team today and if we show half the form of the Barnsley, Cambridge and Bristol games we should come away with a victory.

That’s the theory.”

hulloutpost: “It’s not as important as not losing to Oxford but looking at our fixtures and the run-ins of our competitors, I would personally say that a win rather than a draw is extremely important today.

A defeat would be highly damaging and at this stage of the season as games run out clubs are playing roulette – two bad results and you’re a ‘gonna’ (sic).”

gijsbert_bos: “They are down and only playing for pride and to get a bit of momentum for next season. Seems they’ve enjoyed causing a couple of upsets to promotion contenders the last couple of games, but if we play the way we can now that Erhahon is back, we should have too much for them.”
