Same old same old, just a total kack of adventure, what does he see in Leadbitter, it is like having to play with ten men. I think Shotton needs to be benched, his positional play lately leaves a lot to be desired. We should have enough to win as I cannot see their defence stopping Bamford and Traore for ninety minutes.

It's the same set up that had us win 3 games with 3 goals scored in each before the international break.

Well the problem i saw last game was that Leadbitter and Clayton were doing the same job at least one of them has been removed for the slightly more attacking Howson. 

 

Is Downing becoming like a mini version of Chelsea's John Terry (before he left i mean) too big to drop?

Shotton must be injured and no Clayton:)

Not at all... the reason Downing is not dropped is because he’s one of our better players. (Regardless of what’s said on here)

Id describe downing as solid which is fine, but i do think we could give someone else a go on that wing whos better going forward tbh ive always said Fabio might actually make a good winger or harrison is sat on the bench.

Happy enough with the team. Prefer Clayton to Leadbitter but at least Howson is back in the side. As must win as they come in the run-in.

What exactly do you mean by a lack of adventure?

 

This team is more than capable of winning this game. Remember Burton are fighting for their lives. I think going all out attack in the midfield would be too dangerous, we're not cohesive enough to do it so we need to take our time and forge opportunities when they leave gaps and exploit Traore's pace to the full, exactly what had got us into the play-off positions again to begin with.

A clear 3 goal win will see us move into 5th spot, goals as they go in will be shown on Sky Sports

The formation is more of a 4-1-4-1 the 4 behind Bamford will all push forward and Leadbitter will sit and play the holding role.

I'd rather Clayton instead of Leadbitter but I'm happy enough with the team, the shape and the direction were heading in.

Clayton did nothing against Wolves to keep his place in todays team. No qualms with that change. Shotton has travelled so i dont think hes injured.

    • Yes we have noticed buddy. 🤣🤣 You deserved a medal for last season you were the strongest in the league. Held everyone else up all season.   😁
    • Gestede lent them to Britt stating "as long as he gives me them back soon"
    • Well I'm pleased with the result. From all accounts we missed a fair few sitters again. So it's not just Britt. However, it sounds like we played a decent game. Charlton are a competent side. Granted they have issues with injuries at the moment. But then again so do we. So to come out on top is a big lift. I am well happy that the youngsters took their chance. This is exactly what we want. Hungry, work hard lads who are going to give their all for the duration of the game. Good result. certainly one we needed and the table looks more palatable now. Hopefully we can keep it going. Well done Boro. Keep battling and we will get out of this mess.
    • Another refreshing thing about today was that players showed the right emotions when they didn't convert chance....no cheesy grins...Walker actually thumped pitch in frustration when he realised he had delayed too long and Tav had head in hands.....but they both got on with it afterwards and made sure we kept possession when we needed to.....and fair play to Pears for being a virtual spectator for 75 minutes and still producing a couple of good saves.....and we are getting the points from the teams we need to be getting the points from......we might not have turned the corner, but the fog has cleared enough for it to be visible would settle for a point against Forest...but that would be a bonus....though Millwall showed that if you go at them with speed, they can be upset.....
