Super U's to prevail against the Ammies at the Peninsula Stadium 17:54 - Mar 16 with 840 viewsdurham_exile

A third successive Away game tonight at 1900hrs for the Super U’s, this time against a Salford City team fresh from their EFL Trophy win against Pompey which cost Kenny Jackett his job. They won 4-2 on penalties and held the trophy for 24 hours. Sunderland ended 48 years of hurt with a 1-0 win against Tranmere Rovers.

Salford under Richie Wellens are handily placed in league two and amazingly are unbeaten at Moor Lane (The Peninsula Stadium) since a certain Colchester United won there with Ainsley Harriott and Kwame Poku on the scoresheet. Poku had his best game in a U’s shirt that day in the most horrendous of weather conditions. This game will be for the third time of asking tonight after two earlier postponements owing to the weather.

There is the possibility that Ian Henderson at 36 could be in the starting line up for the Ammies tonight after missing Wembley through illness. The man that John Ward called a wasp and who was productive for the U’s but really found his mettle at Rochdale now plays for Salford City.

Table:
Walsall 33 38 -6
COL U 34 37 -15
PV 35 35 -7
Barrow 32 32 -5
Southend 35 30 -28
Grimsby 33 26 -28

For all their success Salford are not prolific scorers (ok neither are we) so tonight must offer the U’s the chance to secure a second Away win this season. That would give us 40 points and real confidence with the final 12 games to come. The famous 53 points would then be very much in sight.

Our fate is still very much in our own hands and the players must strive for that elusive Away win.

I would not change the team this evening:

George

Welch-Hayes Eastman Smith Clampin

Wiredu Pell Cowan-Hall

Brown

Harriott Nouble

Subs
Coulter Stevenson Chilvers Folivi Cracknell Tchamadeu Poku

The weather in Salford will be 7 degrees Celsius at kick off, dry and cloudy. The pitch should be ok.

Ben Stevenson should get some minutes today, Dean Gerken is nearing a comeback but Shamal George has acquitted himself well. Paris Cowan-Hall played well at Grimsby. Harry Pell will be stronger but must curb his temper at key times. Jevani Brown needs a goal and very soon. Tonight, would be nice. I would also like to see Michael Folivi back in the matchday 18.

If WB holds his nerve, then we can definitely see the wood from the trees and the U’s will be confident going back to the JSCS at the weekend for another relegation six pointer against Port Vale. Then Tranmere and Bradford. Put simply another two or three wins from those games and we will be almost home and dry.

Can we keep a clean sheet tonight it will be difficult but a handy 2-0 Colchester victory against a team distracted after the weekend would be brilliant? Harriott and Brown to see off the Ammies.

“Dirty Old Town” you better believe it!

Enjoy the game

Nice bonus. I paid my £10 I-Follow fee for the postponed fixture and as promised, it has carried forward to tonight. So it feels like a free hit (albeit it isn’t).

I have a strange positivity after watching England bouncing back today. Fingers crossed!

I'll take 11 more to be honest, as it would virtually guarantee survival. That was a pretty solid performance tonight against a team with aspirations of the play-offs, happy with that.

Edit:
Seven of those 11 are at home - I knew we had a run of three coming up, just hadn't realised overall it was so many home games to go. Win just three and we're probably safe, win four and we're definitely safe - MASSIVE game on Saturday, but let's be honest, they're all massive.

Anyone know the record for the most 0-0's in a single season? We are killing football right now, and not in a good way, bet the fans are glad they can't go at the moment.
