IC was emphasising in interview about the need to protect the front two from overwork. I suspect that is from a number of perspectives. I have a hunch that Hawkins will feature for at least 45 mins in the replay. Would be useful to get him more involved. If Adam should go in January, that is potentially only 5- 8 weeks from now. Even tho' , in the event of him leaving,Lynn might try and bring in a replacement , it would make sense to give Hawkins a good run if possible,to see how he goes.
At this stage, very much ifs and buts and maybes, but no harm in being as prepared as poss.

That was a "cup gate" 840!!!
You'll find that some will over predict the attendance so they have something to be negative about when the actual attendance is lower.

I estimated around 800, before it was announced, so not far off what was announced.
Very good gate for this stage of the competition. Pre-game, I was predicting 700/750.

700/750......v pessimistic of you B and G....this is a side who are top of Conf North, not half way up the SLP !

Yes B and G , mentioned earlier on another thread.......not sure they will have seen much from that game. Huge jump to Championship. Colchester league 2, but Marriott could be one league below that next year anyway.

Think 846 is decent declared attendance for Trophy game , especially when you factor in a miserable day, weather wise. The first of 3 consecutive home games. Always a downturn with Xmas shopping on the agenda. Lack of travelling fans ( I reckon there can have been many more than 20)

Not a bad attendance I guess and maybe the interest isn't there for the earlier  rounds of The Trophy, especially at this time of year
However, disappointing in the context of the average attendance being around  1100 and the fact that the club need to build on that to pay the bills. I had hoped for 1250 on the basis that Chester was over 1600 and they probably brought 250-300, so around 1300 Lynn fans for that one.

Good news re Harry. Yes around another 4 weeks for Fryatt and Smith, according to IC interview. Just as well we have Tom Ward for the league fixtures up to Christmas and beyond. Hopefully Fryatt and Smith will also  be available for the meaty fixtures in early 2020.

What do we think the attendance might be at Hereford...given its a cold Tuesday night in late November ?
1700- 2000 ?
I will predict 1850.

Well, a tough replay, but a decent earner...50% of a 2000 gate could be handy.

Top of the league, lots of media coverage this week, Norwich away, I'm hopeful.

I too think a run in the FA Trophy would be good.
However, fans perhaps need to adjust their thinking a little following promotion to step 2. Conference North is unusually laden with 'big ' clubs. Every league game is a bit like a big cup game would have been when the club was in step 3 or 4.
There aren't many clubs in step 1, that are significantly bigger than York, Chester, Hereford etc.
The key has to be (along with improved commercial sponsorship), getting big enough league attendances.
All cup matches have split gate receipts, which can put a big dent in the income from a home tie.

What do we think in terms of attendance ?

I would be surprised if Hereford bring more than 50, so I am hoping for at least 1250 in total.
Gate receipts are shared, I believe, so the 3750 for winning will be important I guess.

I believe it was said to be a viral condition. I seem to recall IC saying that he was hopeful Harry would be back training soon once Doctor's clearance was given.

So Ross Barrows as centre half presumably.
Would personally play Gash up front. Would also like to see Hawkins feature at some stage. Seems sensible to give him some more minutes, so that we have a prepared striker replacement, if required for future games.

Guess it's about the time of week when we start discussing possible line ups  :laughcry:

Yes Mike, but even so, they average well over 2000 a home game, so struggling to fill a coach of 26 speaks volumes about the mood at the club. They have had some really poor results recently, so pressure on players and manager....could be a tough old game. Seems to be huge disquiet among a section of the fans re the Board/structure etc

Hopefully there will be a good sized crowd for this one.
Had hoped for a decent away contingent, but their supporters' trust have organised a 26 seater coach and there are still places available !
