Iíd imagine Harrop and Palma might feature ...is Sheridan still out on loan?

Palma is out on loan, and scored yesterday. Sheridan is still out on loan I think

Good opportunity to give those in need of some game time a run out, quiet happy to progress in the Cheshire cup as a means to rotate the squad and use towards suspensions if needed

I must admit this competition is less of an irritant this season.

The last Match Report for a Reserve game on the website is 01/12/17. It featured the following names:

1. Andrew JONES, 2. Harry SHERIDAN, 3. Tom WESTALL, 4. Ryan BARRY, 5. Billy NUGENT, 6. Ethan BROOKS, 7. Max POUNCEY, 8. Scott SMITH, 9. Will SMITH, 10. Joel SWIFT, 11. Rhain DAVIS. Subs: 12. Rob KENNERLEY, 14. Joe ROEBUCK, 15. Alex LOVELL, 16. Denico WALTERS, 20. Cameron TERRY

Perhaps we may see a couple of these included in tomorrow's squad. Tom Westall and Rhain Davis have both featured before of course.

Just as a matter of record - that is actually the last time the reserve team played a game. I agree that it would be good to see some of them on the bench at least. I think Barry, Pouncey & Swift have also been on CSC team-sheets before now & Terry was on the bench once earlier this season? 
I would imagine that Deasy will keep goal; the two Joneses (Callum & James) might well be in the back four; Miller will play; Peers & Richman might be starters. Hampson is presumably still not fit & even if he were, would it be worth risking him? White might or might not need more game time - as I haven't seen him play as yet I have no valid opinion on that matter. I imagine Harrop will be in the squad in some shape or form.
At this point it seems to me that the most important thing is to get the game played - and given that there's another CSC tie scheduled there tonight (Winsford v Warrington I think) that might be in some doubt. We shall see ...

The Winsford v Warrington game has been postponed tonight, with a frozen pitch, so that is probably a bad sign.

I put off buying a train ticket, looking like a good idea now. Slightly warmer tomorrow but I'm not holding out hope. They will want it on, I'd imagine - they have a huge fixture pile up this month as it is.

Paddy Power go:

1874 Northwich 10/3
Draw 9/2
Altrincham 4/9

Altrincham to Win & Over 2.5 Goals 1/1 looks a nice price.

+1 Absolutely spot on. Never have liked this annoyance of a competition and never will (and yes I've been to finals).....probably stems back to us getting fined 500 pounds (which were worth a hell of a lot more back then; for several reasons)  by the Cheshire FA for fielding a reserve side away at Cammell Laird on a bloody Tuesday afternoon for fecks sake (back in very early 80's).

I would have been happy to see us out of this, even at the hands of those of a green and white persuasion.

Completely understand your point of view Globby but I think we should go and win some trophies.
Iím amazed that people canít see the connection, whenever teams at all levels play a weakened team and lose it disrupts their momentum- the thing we have going for us right now is the belief that we will win every game.

An unwelcome distraction no doubt, but sounds like we put in a professional performance. Aside from Peers' yellow card a good night's for the fringe players

I understand that point of view also, but it's the risk of first team players getting injured that worries me more than anything else.

We could have lost Shaun Densmore for a very long time following that tackle in the first half. Horrendous, straight red was completely warranted but not a true reflection of a game that was played the right way by two teams who kept it on the ground and clearly wanted to progress.

Their fans have every right to feel aggrieved following our second, there was a quite blatant foul on a Ď74 player in the build-up. It wouldnít have changed much though. The writing was on the wall when we named such a strong defence, they were reduced to snatching at half chances of which I can only remember two. Professional and assured, as you would expect.

I know itís not a night for negatives but I must say I expected more of Sean Miller, who played as a #9 but didnít really influence the game as youíd expect. Perhaps we were just trialling him as a forward, as the more natural choice would have been Peers #9 Miller #11.

Will add, Johnstonís goal was superb and itís a real shame the majority of you will never get to see it. Probably in our top five of the season so far.

Lots of their fans seem to still really dislike us. I wouldnít have it any other way. Hopefully they progress as a club and work their way back up to our level.

That's why football is a great game. Riley's tackle was a yellow at most and if it was a red why wasn't 't your lad sent off late in the second half for the same thing. Didn't like the way your keeper and six players surrounded the ref....

We competed really well and if it had stayed 11v11 who knows. Also tell your radio guys we are 1874 not Vics

We are now in the quarter-finals; Hyde & Stockport also won their games this week; Alsager v Stalybridge (along with Winsford v Warrington) was postponed. The other outstanding (?) ties are Stockport Town (who I think used to be Woodley, then Stockport Sports?) v Cammell Laird, Runcorn Linnets v Crewe & Sandbach United v Nantwich. Cheshire FA website has no details of draw or dates for next round as yet. The venue for the final seems to rotate between Wincham Park and Nantwich these days, by the way.

Because Tom Peers' challenge wasn't as bad as the abysmal one that saw a red card in the first half. The only reason the referee would have given a red card would have been to even the numbers out of guilt. I'm glad he was strong enough to avoid that, albeit his overall performance was pretty abysmal. I'd agree that you competed well and I hope you go on to win the FA Vase this season.
