i'm going 1-1, they will score first and we will peg them back to then get our hopes up of going on to win but we will miss all the chances we have plus x2 offside goals and a goal disallowed for a foul in the build up by us. all the goals will under review deem good. we will all be moaning about it on here for ages. until we beat forest on saturday.

Coventry line up with a back 3 and 2 wing-backs, then they play with 2 Number 10s who like to push up behind a lone striker. As much as I'd like us to play a back 4 today, I think we'll line up with a back 5 tonight.

That's a bizarre formation, but it'll be interesting to see how it works (or doesn't) on the night.

Expecting a win tonight and looking for a comfortable one at that.  Doesn't need to be a big win but I want to see us looking clearly better than them.  We seem to have a tendency to either bring teams down to our level or raise teams up to our level though, hence every game is close.  It'd be nice to see something different tonight.

Yeah they basically play a "square" shape midfield with 2 players sitting deeper and 2 players in the 10 role.

It's what Boro used to play back in 95/96 with Hignett and Barmby behind Fjortoft and then Juninho and Barmby behind him.  We also had the wingbacks, Cox on one side and Chris Morris on the other, Pearson, Vickers and Whyte at the back, Mustoe and Pollock in midfield.  As a link to Coventry, we beat them 2-1 early in the season with that very line up  🙌

I think Warnock will hold his nerve and keep things just as they have been, tight and controlled and looking for breaks, errors and set pieces. A 1-0 win will do just fine in his book as much as we the fans would love to see a swashbuckling performance. If the opposition is poorly organised and get themselves in a muddle then we could nick a few but I don't expect to see a Warnock team going for it as nice as it would be.

Oh yeah, I'm sure he will mate and I imagine a 1-0 win will do just fine for him and for a lot of people on here.  But a 1-1 draw or a 0-0 draw or even a defeat won't.  You make every game close then you leave yourself open to being on the wrong end of things.

It would be really nice to get a few goals and move us upwards in the goals scored column. Would be nice to not be amongst the lowerst scorers again this season.

Well given what NW has stated we will need the 3 points to achieve his projection, mid table and a bonus if we are 3 points from the play offs. Fact he thinks with the squad size mid table might be optimistic. Well it fairs what I had predicted which I thought with the players he wanted a mid upper finish was on the books, and without, mid lower. 
So we can I’ll afford NOT to take 3 points when the opportunity  presents itself, and here it is on a silver platter.
