Who would you pick out of Pinnock, Abbey or Evans to partner Rob Haworth, i would pick Pinnock as i feel he is totally under rated, and people should rememeber his early season form against the likes of Leigh & Exeter when pinnock and howorth were brilliant together. PINNOCK FOR ME

Abbey & Evans for Sat's game as Haworth is suspended. Otherwise, Abbey to partner Haworth because he's been the most successful of the three. Evans next in line then Pinnock.

Although a bright start to the season I believe Pinno spends too much time with his back to goal and rarely goes for goal when he should do. Needs to be more positive & greedy basically.

Abbey,as much as it pans me to say it!
Although evans sometimes comes out with a few sparks of genius, but generally unless the play is open for him he is not great.Tight games could do without him.and walshe now i think of it.

As for pinns, he seems to have lost his way,maybe all the sales the last few months at diesel have taken it out of him! <img src="/images/graemlins/yeahthat.gif" alt="" />

Abbey for me, good quick striker who given the chance and good service will continue to perform well.

The question for me is not "who should partner Haworth?", but "who should partner Abbey?" He is a class act who simply does not deserve the stick he gets from certain supporters behind the goal. I think we should start to take a look at the failings of players such as Matt Lee and Ben Walshe before we moan at the man who scores goals for us. As for Louie, he is clearly a reasonably talented player, but for me his level lies below the conference. We should try to play Pinnock now and then, he is clearly good after his form earlier in the season, but currently he cannot find the target, sadly.

Abbey to start everytime.

As for who should partner him - a tough choice.

Yeh in fact without Haworth in the team we would really struggle both aerially and on the ground he has brilliant hold up play. I know hes not playing this week but in the future, definitely him with either of the other three. Abbey being first choice with evans close second and Pinnock the dark horse!

Sats game = Abbey and Evans

Have we have signed a big burly ruthless big headed player, who looks as tho' he will be a handful but also real crowd pleaser.

Well, I listened to Talk Radio up to 10 pm and nothing was mentioned on there, despite the posting in another thread.

I have been waiting since we sold the beast. I am being patient, but there still doesn't seem any real competition for the Haworth/Abbey combination.

Perhaps we can sign another striker in the summer.

Haworth and Abbey all the way for me. Would pick Evans ahead of Pinnock for tomorrow though.

I'd have Howarth and Abbey up front. I think Pinnock was a goalscoring midfield player before joining us and would probably do well there again.
I also think we need someone up front who can benefit from Protheroes and Walshes crosses, if we don't unveil a new striker who is good in the air for Saturday then I'd play Chris Moore as center forward.
