Harrop in Mantack is the only change I envisage. Be good have Poole back in squad.

Definitely need a winger in.

Need to get the points ticking over again, I would bring in Harrop if fit for Mantack. Personally would give Wynne a go.

Come on you Robins

The return of James Poole is most welcome. I'd also like to see Harrop come in on the left, otherwise unchanged for me.

I would be surprised if Poole were in the squad on Saturday; as I understand what I read on the official website he is scheduled to return to training this evening (Thursday) following his latest injury. I should imagine he's some way short of even the subs' bench as yet. As regards the team for Saturday, if Harrop is fit I assume he will start the game. I am another of those who feels Wynne should be given a run in goal (and I don't mean just one game) but I don't expect that to happen. Otherwise there aren't really any other viable options - Richman provides more in midfield than Williams can offer in my view; the current back four is the best available, so Densmore & Harrison join the bench, and there is no real attacking alternative, so Sang or Mantack make up the subs along with (presumably) Wynne.
All the best to those travelling on Saturday - afraid it's just too far, too expensive & too time-consuming for me.

Wynne in for Thompson and Harrop in for Matack. Id also consider bringing back Ben Harrison. James Jones has been good this season, but the way Parky plays with so much emphasis on the centre backs starting the attacking moves, Id like to see Harrison back in. His distribution is much better than Jones and he is also more comfortable on the ball.

Ishmael Miller has left Oldham today. A big powerful striker/winger who would be a good addition but I doubt he'll be short of offers.

I'd keep Jones in myself. Got to give this back four time to get it right again. The combination of White, Hannigan, Jones and Hampson has been superb and a massive part of our unbeaten run. Swapping one out seems a bit knee-jerk to me.

                            Thompson

White        Hannigan         Jones          Hampson

                  Moult           Richman

   Johnston         Hancock                Harrop

                           Hulme

Boston 1-1 Altrincham: Hulme 38'

Hopefully we aren't too leggy on Saturday. Lads like JJ and Hancock have played an awful lot recently and it may begin to take its toll, but they're irreplaceable at the moment. Full week of preparation before the Chorley game is most certainly a good thing. C'mon Alty.

Wynne and Harrop in 100%. Praying that the club are working to secure another winger.

Boston have just 1 win in their previous 9 league games – and that was against a York City side not on the best of runs themselves.

So nothing to fear. What we do as a side works against the majority of other teams in this league, and Boston will be nowhere near the level of Stockport. I’d expect us to get back to winning ways on Saturday, and to look pretty good doing so.

Boston really did a job on us at Moss Lane, and I'm sure I'm not the only surprised that they aren't in a better position. I'm going (despite my dislike of their ground) and I'm hoping their confidence is low, and that we can do a job on THEM !

Boston 1 Alty 2 (Hulme, Harrop)

The town's entire English-speaking population turns up, ensuring the attendance creeps over the thousand mark.

For those interested in having a flutter. A well known twitter tipster has backed Boston tomorrow and on the back of that they’ve gone In this afternoon from 5/4 to 4/7 on. As a direct result Alty have gone out to 4/1, well worth a go.

That's probably because the satchel swingers have noted that Wynne has gone out on loan

That's the 11, no Sang or keeper on the bench. Assume Elliott if Ben from youth team
