Just wish I could make these games but commitments just outweigh going, and keeping everyone happy at home! Will have to find a quiet area at home to listen to on the radio.

Should be interesting how Greg gets on tomorrow. You do feel that we need some fresh faces in there for now to give us some kind of momentum.

I see that Wardy is not in the squad so whether Buzz will fill in.

All I can remember about Halifax was that they had a lump at the back that seemed to clear everything, a strong midfielder and attacker, so they were strong throughout the middle of the park. The rest seemed much the same as one another.

If the same players, the ball into the box may not be best ploy as the lump will clear it. Perhaps try another route through.

All the best lads and I’m sure all this hard work will start paying off again with a win very soon.

I've managed quite a few of the away games this season, but It's 50/50 whether I'll be able to go tomorrow.

Bit of a shame as with the new blood I think we may have a good chance of getting something. Noticed Junior was in the line up against Burton, but was obviously not going to play due to injury, but is not down for Halifax - so presume the pressure is off Jeff a little now he has Pearson and Braniff.

Shall tune in on the radio if I can't make it.

Best of luck to the lads tomorrow, I'm sure they will give a good account of themselves against one of the high flying sides.

I'm going for a 2-2.

Don't count for much over a season - but I still rememebr standing on the side at Woking near to Peter Smith when his head dropped. He was subbed a couple of minutes later and struggled to get back in after that.

I can't remember Mcghee doing anything wrong and can still remember him doing some solid one on one challenges at Scarborough when the striker ran at him with only Mcghee to beat. Very solid and doesn't give anything away.

I think his only weakness, if you can call it that, is not playing the ball out into midfield with control. He tends to belt it clear and worry about it afterwards - on occassions a good habit to have. Smithy does tend to run out from defence.

Mcghee edges it for me.

Halifax v Canvey Island
Halifax will be without Dean Howell as he is suspended but Lewis Killeen could be in contention to start up front.
Christian Lee, Sean McAuley, Mark Monington and Karl Munroe all remain sidelined and on the casualty list.

Canvey Island striker Neil Gregory should have recovered from an ankle injury in time to face Halifax and Lee Boylan may have regained full fitness. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" alt="" />

Chris Duffy, Jeff Minton and Jon Keeling are all slight doubts but loan signing Greg Pearson could feature.

He may have regained full fitness, although nothing has been said, but he's not on the official website as being in the travelling squad - neither is Junior. So it may be both the new boys up front.

What with us, Shots and now Halifax with injury problems it seems that the Conference is a bit of a bruising league.

Agree with Yellow - think we may get something out of this game.

I cant see Lee travelling and I doubt he will be in any first team games until after the break.

I saw the new loanee last night and he looks tall and sharp, lets hope he does the trick for us!!

I'm not being out of order mate but when one of your black players is racially abused you are going to react. What I heard today was disgusting and I'm not condoning our supporters' behaviour but you seem to have some real morons following your club!!

I genunially didnt hear owt i did hear a lot of booing towards a couple of your players one black lad one white as they had both punched a couple of town players during the match so they both got booed for the rest of the game. I came back from having a coffee and as i walked down the steps saw the canvey fans going mad in the corner and no one seemed to know why. Some of your fans wre out of order but if there was racist abuse that too is not called for i didnt hear it so i cant comment im afraid.

it was more that distasteful it was an utter disgrace. Im sure it was only a very small percentage of the Halifax supporters but there is no reason for racial abuse in this day and age. anyone who is racist is just showing a lack of intelligence and utter ignorance. what was most worrying is that your stewards didn't seem that worried.

when Halifax came down to play at canvey your manager was herd saying a racist comment and now there are chants from the crowd. this is the 21 century for Christ sake start acting like it.

I hope the FA throws the book at you, Halifax are a better club than that and need to be sorted out

There is one way and that is when the score gets to 2-1 or 3-1 walk off in protest at the chants, I promise the FA would act and so would Halifax because in the present climate the FA would have to be on Canveys side and the adverse publicity for Halifax would be huge
Selfish and self seaking you bet

the ref clams not to have herd anything, which would make him about the only person who didn't. his hearing was obviously as bad as his eyesight

Both the F.A. and EUFA have issued guide-lines.

As long as the referee is aware of the abuse, the team being targeted can leave the field of play without fear of any come-back from the governing body !.
