Stags to be hunted down by Super U's at Fortress Weston 02:34 - Oct 7 with 417 viewsdurham_exile

After an encouraging result last weekend at Huish Park, which saw the U’s secure all three points on their travels for the first time this season, JM welcomes Steve Evans and his Stags to the WHCS.

Now forget all about the fact that Mansfield have lost their last 5 games at Colchester and haven’t beaten the U’s since 2003, this will be a tough fixture. Mansfield with an impressive victory over Notts County last week in front of 7,000 supporters will be confident that they can rewrite the record books today.

8th place in the table and with 19 points they are well placed to break into the play-off positions. Meanwhile after an indifferent start to the season the U’s are in 16th place with 12 points.

JM can welcome back Kurtis Guthrie and Craig Slater, two of his most influential players. I suspect that both will start in a 3,4,1,2 formation.

Walker with 38 saves so far this season will look to secure another clean sheet following the Yeovil game. Tuesday night a last-minute winner gave the Gills victory but JM will not worry too much about the Gillingham result. He knows that the league is crucial to our season.

If fit, then Tom Eastman will play alongside Inniss and Kent whilst Slater will join Murray, Reid and Vincent-Young with Wright, Guthrie and Hanlan which gives the team the following look:

Walker

Eastman Inniss Kent

Vincent-Young Murray Slater Reid

Wright

Guthrie Hanlan

Subs:
Gilmartin Jackson Kabamba Senior O’Sullivan James Mandron

Taking the game to the Stags is vital if we are to prevail. A good home performance in front of a 4,000 crowd is crucial to make a statement about our intentions to also fight for a top seven berth.

Enjoy the game.

Here I am sitting by the pool sunbathing, cool drink in hand listening to soothing music and all I keep getting are interruptions from U's goal alerts. Pack it in guys, two is enough. Now back to dozing.

Good win at the Weston, now seven out of nine points in the league .
Two up by half time, firstly with a squared free- kick to Murray, who's low shot took a small deflection into the corner, and Mandron with a well taken header.
Murray should have wrapped game up in the second half after a break, but failed to put shot on target when it was easier to make the goalie make a save .
Apart from glancing header and fierce shot that Walker beat out, U's looked good value for the win.
Man of the Match - Loft who read game well and showed some quality in midfield .

A fully fit Loft for an extended period would be a huge bonus for us.

Straight down and a bit to the left, island called Porto Santo, just N of Madeira. Same time as UK at the moment.
I fondly remember my time living in Minnesota Midwest USA (-6 hours UK) when nothing got done Saturday morning until after 11.00 as kick-off was 9.00am local time.Annoyed the hell out of Mrs Gerry.

The last two results have been very encouraging, and the six points most welcome. I do think that the significant element of both results is the "nil" conceded.

Peter Taylor, Brian Clough's no.2 at Forest, said that success is built on clean sheets. Hopefully, if we can continue keeping that trend ourselves, we may become a force in this division.

Still nowhere near convincing at the back, despite the developing clean sheets PWK . JM seems still not too know whether to play a three or four , depending on availability .
Let's hope the clean sheets are habit forming though.
More worrying is that several loanees are starting to look out of their depth at this level, and are not bring anything extra.
On the plus side, Loft and Mandron both had decent games Saturday which was most welcome .
