Alty 4/7
Draw 3/1
Stourbridge 10/3

Could really do with getting this on and getting it won with shaw la v Grantham in doubt tomorrow and Warrington not playing. Not sure who’s fit

Assuming everyone if fit.

                        Thompson

Densmore Harrison Hanigann Hampson

                Moult.           Harrop

      Johnson.    Poole    Hancock

                         Hulme


Some tough decisions to be made if all fit.

Yep, I'll go with that team too. It'd be nice at some point to see a Richman Harrop combination, but not yet.

When  (if ever) have we been able to select a starting XI where over half the players had names beginning with the same letter ?

It rained a bit yesterday but there wasn't a lot of snow for us last week and there was a good drying wind on Friday and Saturday.

At the moment I'm confident the game will happen but I haven't looked at the forecast.

I'd go with that team as well.....but would like at some stage to see Poole in midfield with Harrop....next season assuming we win promotion I think that team with someone likle buxton's striker alongside Hulme and a decent left winger of slightly better than JJ quality and we walk back into the national.

Lets get Stourbridge beaten first mind...lets open the gap again and put more pressure on the chasing pack and wrestle the initiative and momentum back.

BBC weather forecast has light showers from 7pm-ish this evening, light rain overnight, then dry from about 7am tomorrow with a bit of a breeze. To be honest, if that were to be enough to prevent the match going ahead we have bigger problems with the pitch than perhaps any of us had thought.
As to the game - as we've never played them before there's not a lot to go on, but we perhaps need to get going a bit quicker than has sometimes been the case after a couple of postponements.

Poole hasn't the legs for centre mid. We will need energy and strength in there next season.

I reckon Poole's best position is number 10 (where he pays now) and certainly no deeper than that - although his ball retention in key areas would certainly be useful.

Buxton's striker is based in Doncaster and would almost certainly not come over this way - more likely Alfreton, Shaw Lane (if they go up) or even Harrogate.

Are we looking for better than JJ now? Don't think we need to (even in the level above) unless the right player becomes available. We could do with Salford going up to be in line for their offcasts again.

I watched Stourbridge at Ashton a few weeks ago, and they were really quite poor (as were Ashton I thought). As long as we're on our own game, we should have enough.

Certainly don't want Poole playing any deeper, he's just fine in this league (and the the league above) where he is.

Could argue he'd do a job further forward alongside Hulme

They are full time now so I can't see is picking up anyone from Salford

Mike,
BBC weather hasn't a clue.
We have had VERY heavy rain for the last two hours.
Forecast now says it could last all night.
GUTTED.....pitch was in A1 condition this afternoon when we left.
Best it's been for some time.
Another busy day tomorrow!!!
