Buxton away
« on: February 02, 2023, 04:48:57 PM »
Tough away trip but certainly winnable.   Be interesting to see who is and who isnít available for this one with the recent injury issues.  So hopefully these are starting to clear up now.

Be good to see Hargreaves back involved in some capacity sometime soon as always feel we are a more rounded team with him.

Think we will take this one 1-3.

Just listened to the interview with Hugo.  Sounds very much like Hargreaves, Stephenís, Scott and of course Gold wonít be involved Saturday.

I guess the new lad Jones will replace Scott on the left hand side


What if the Hokey Cokey really is what itís all about ?

This will i think be a really tough game. Their league position and recent results, until beating Blyth 3-0 away (when we only managed a 0-0) might suggest that we are favourites but maybe coming away with a point would be one gained rather than two lost.....Or am i being pessimistic rather than realistic?

As long as we can cope with the altitude and the rain we should stand a chance.
It's an artificial pitch so hopefully the ball will be played on the deck!

They are all tough games, just some more than others. Retaining Aaron Cosgrave until the end of the season is fantastic. Iím optimistic and going for a win. Any win will do, but going to predict 3 - 0. Hoping Barrett and Ponticelli both start and the new Jones too.

Buxton just announced two defensive signings Connor Brown from Barrow and  Jake Hull, on loan from Rotherham.

I'm going for a win too. Probably going to be a tough game, as John H said all games from now will be tough so 1-2 to Lynn  :scarf: :scarf:

I hope Tommy  Hughes plays. Good technique and work rate. That pitch at Buxton will suit him. I'll take 4 points from our next 2 games.   I am surprised they travelled last night.  Its only 3 to 3 and a half hours to Buxton.

It seems what TW wants TW gets.  Maybe lessons have been learnt.  Anyway if it wins Lynn the League then no one will be Complaining.

Fingers crossed.  We have enough to win, but TW often picks a safety first line-up away from home.  We even had too many defenders at home to Bradford, and only turned the game round when Barrett and Widd came on.  The new lad sounds quick and versatile.  Agree with John H that Ponty should be alongside  Cosgrave, with Barrett in the m/f behind them.  Must have inventers in midfield, and sometimes we donít.

Barrett came on for Ponticelli (not a defender) and Widdrington for Oxlade Chamberlain after he'd scored the winner.
