"Every game against him is a *** pantomime. He even looks like Widow Twanky."
Oh no he doesn't!
I suspect this won't be a classic game, or top of the EFL on Quest running order. Probably only be a single goal in the game, but we're so hot and cold atm, I have no idea which way the result will go. I'd settle for an away draw against another there-or-thereabouts team, but a win would really put pressure on the other teams near the top, so fingers crossed Watmore has his shooting boots on - especially since neither of our fit strikers tend to.
They have a lot of respect for the mighty Boro & NW who is our 12th man
They're a few who reckon we'll win & they're running on fumes, strange how you look at teams, me I would say this is our hardest so far
I think I'd go with the same team that started against Swansea. Possibly bring Saville into the midfield and give Howson a rest, especially with his hip issue, he looked a little out of sorts last time out. I also wonder if it would be worth resting McNair for this one and sticking Wood alongside Fry. Warnock said he though about starting Wood against Swansea but thought Swansea's fluidity would cause him issues, I cannot see Stoke causing the same problems, so it could be a game well suited to Wood.
