What combination of strikers do you think Andy F will go for in the FA cup game . And when was the last time a Striker scored for us? Now Evans is back will he get a chance it must be his turn soon as all the other strikers have had their chance.

Well, with Oli cup-tied and hence unavailable, it's a tough choice. He'll surely pick Haworth - the goals have dried up recently for him, but given the small stature of the other three forwards available (i.e. Abbey, Pinnock and Evans), he seems a certain choice. As for his partner up front, that's anyone's guess - it's too close to call.

Could Pinnock be out? not due to his suspension but due to the seriousness of his actions if they were seen to be deliberate by Andy?

Haworth looked like he was struggling Saturday, not sure if was an injury or he was just knackered !!Would be worth starting with him anyway......any one of four for the other place !!

I would play Drury up front with Howarth as he is more likely to score than any of our strikers.
Who's gonna take Rob Owens' place in midfield?
The new guy Protheroe maybe or Stroutsy?

Dunno about strikers the defence needs sorting as well, with two Managers who were defenders they need to sort that out, McClements is out of his depth most of the game the gaps on his right flank are very concerning, my team would be
Wilkinson
Shearer Duku Moore Lee
Perkins Pinnock McKimm Walshe
Drury Haworth
Shearer can play right back did so for Margate, with Owen & Skinner out that is the best team i can pick, not sure if Protheroe was cup tied or not, if not swap for Pinnock.
Subs O'Rielly Strouts Evans Abbey depending on the Protheroe situation if he is cup tied then Ade Pennock on the bench.
Also Ron Hilyard talk to Wilko about his kicking we are giving the ball away with these long kicks, watch the other goalkeepers most build up from the back they cover each other well.

Protheroe isnt Cup Tied.

I just wonder if Andy might just spring a surprise somewhere - could he possibly include Ade Pennock as a sweeper, behind Moore and Shearer, or Moore and Duku? Even though he hasnt playedmuch this year, his experience could be invaluable??

Has anyone thought that Andys style of football doesn't benefit our strikers. Booth and Wilkins are the top 2 goalscorers in the Dr.Martens. I know its a lower level but they were never prolific for us even at that level.

Whether Andy will spring a surprise or not Alan, putting Pennock into the side is too risky. Sure, it could pay off, but we always moan about having to change our defence because of injuries all the time, so why change it tactically? Pennock is probably short of match fitness, and slotting him in could disturb the balance of our back line. It's important to remember that our problems in recent weeks have been to do with our goalscoring rather than our defence.

Quite right - at least twice this season, a substitution has been made as a result of Pennock being knackered - nearly straight away, we conceded a goal!

Pennock can coach from the touchline thanks.
