Ahead of tomorrow afternoon’s Sky Bet League Two match at home against Notts County, we asked our members what 3 things they think we need to do to win.
Here’s what Scotimp said:
1. Keep Boldewijn quiet: This is easier said than done, especially as Toffolo will be charged with marking him for the majority. However, Boldewijn switches wings – he gained an assist from each wing against Newport on Tuesday. He is quicker than the average League Two player and is a great crosser of the ball. He is the supply line to Hemmings and Dennis: cut that out, and we should have few problems.
2. Consider that central area: Early reports suggest that County are weak in central areas and lack pace. So do we if we play Frecklington and O’Connor together, and fielding a slow defensive pairing behind them in Shackell and Bostwick only compounds that. Hopefully, Wharton will be fit to return, as he is quick enough to cover Boldewijn if (when) he gets past Toffolo. Bostwick into midfield.
3. Set up to attack: County have conceded a shedload of goals already (23 in their last 8 games including pre-season) and are extremely vulnerable at the back. Centre-half and captain Richard Duffy, in particular, is having a run of very poor games. Anderson and Andrade must start to give width and pace, with Pett in the No.10 role pulling the midfield strings. County may well be expecting Rhead to start (as he did against Bury), so I would go with Akinde.
