Maybe Sass-Davies in for Jones? I rate Jones highly but not quite been himself second half of the season.

Hoping Ceesay recovers, really enjoy watching him play and he has defo been a big positive in our recent good form.

Very hard not to start the covers debate again, but being one of the contributors and the forecast giving rain up to and into Saturday then I am hoping they are used Friday night.........

Looking at the weather from now until Saturday Andrew, I think most satchel swingers  would have your prediction priced up at odds on fella.

Sass-Davis in for Jones, harsh but football is.

Ceesay would be a massive loss. I'd play Hulme as a winger and Piggott up top if no Ceesay.


Probably will be postponed.

Forecast here is for only light rain until Saturday, but heavy on matchday. How long does it take to get the covers off if we use them ?

If we DO play, it won't be an easy game, but I think we can beat them - after all, we did at their place.

Alty 5/4
Draw 5/2
Brackley 13/8

Will have to be at our best but itíll send out quite a message if we can do the double over Brackley

Presumably there will be an inspection Saturday morning, early enough to stop Brackley travelling needlessly - I would guess before 10am? The forecast for daytime Saturday looks dire to say the least.

I would certainly hope for and expect an early inspection. A problem could be that, if the forecast is right, the really heavy rain only starts on Saturday morning, so it could get worse after an early inspection, despite all the efforts of the groundstaff.

I'm sure the weather for noon and beyond will be factored in by whoever carries out the pitch inspection

Will volunteers be needed to remove the pitch covers before the inspection?

Don't the covers have to come off early to let the pitch breathe?

I think they will need a roof over the pitch to give us any chance of seeing a football match at Moss Lane tomorrow.

In all honesty, I don't expect I will be leaving Shropshire tomorrow.
