Mario got his chance because Mints was sent off for two yellow card offences.

Really can't understand what his intention was - frustrating as I thought we had seen the end of needless and reckless tackles that let the team down after Ollie had left.

I would like to see Mario start, but feel that Jeff will go for the more experienced Minton.
& Mints aint done bad this term.
agree about not playing the 2 together,cos thay are too similar.
whoever plays lets get behind them, this will be a difficult game for us.mind with that xtra bit of grit shown this season, we can get something from york.

I also think that Minton will get the nod. Not sure if i'd start Boylan though, as i thought he looked short of match pace. Sub and a couple of reserve games?

on the subject of mario's early tackle, he did take the ball first, a couple of minutes later 1 of their players did exactly the same tackle but didn't get the ball and nothing got done about him, i just think mario was unlucky, he had a very good game

Agree - Mario did take the ball first - trouble was it was attached to the ankle of an Alty player <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

Watched it on Conf TV but it was extremely quick.

The other things I tried to see on Conf TV - but again were to quick were:

1. Mckinneys positioning for the Alty Goal when the ball came in.

2. The foul during Taits goal by Ibe.

3. Did Mckinney spill the ball or was it a foul for Alty's disallowed goal.

Any thoughts on any of those?

Wouldn't mind seeing Tait playing just behind the front two. Thought he looked quite lively on Saturday.

Agreed, looked lively and a proven scorer at this level. Why buy him if he never gets a game?

I would like to see Tait and Boylan start and Ibe to replace which ever one tires first. Tait is a confident player and we should not keep him on the bench for every match. Boylan showed signs of flaking out on Saturday.

Very suprised Boylan even started on Saturday. I thought it foolhardy to put him straight into the 1st team after an operation of that nature. One more game without a player of Boylans talent would not of been too painful but could have had big implications if he had a reaction from playing too soon!!

I would give Tait his chance, though he did have a chance earlier in the season and failed to take it. However, now he is settled into the club it might be a different story, and he certainly has looked good coming on.

Striker selection problems, who would have thought it?!

Right - "this is thinking right out of the box"

How about Tait playing in midfield (not sure if he's done it before)pushing Mario or Mints back taking up the more central role played by Sedgemore. Would certainly give us a more attacking flair in front of goal rather than passing it across the front of the area repeatedly before we lose posession. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/crazy.gif" alt="" />

Now I've just got to think up another totally mad suggestion.

I was suprised Lee went straight back into the side. I thought he was going to play a few friendlies first. Could have increased the risk of further injury by starting, and finishing, the game on Saturday.

Horses for courses. Against some of the better team we are going to need a strong holding midfield, so Sedgemore is a must. However, as a lot of the team are now full-time and have improved fitness we should look to use our substitutions better.

I wouldn't drop Sedgemore. Think he's been excellent recently.

His work rate is better but he tends to spend a bit to long on the ball and is sometimes caught in posession leaving us back peddling. Opposition players start to learn and put him under pressure quickly nicking the ball or hoping for a mistake when he turns and tries to switch play.
