Bluebirds will be grounded at the JSCS today 11:35 - Apr 5 with 1483 viewsdurham_exile

The new era of HM and PT secured a crucial point at Bolton on Good Friday and now prepare to entertain the Bluebirds at the JSCS. Rob Kelly’s team are also struggling but have only a minus 3-goal difference suggesting that their games this season have largely been close affairs.

Table:

Barrow 37 41 -3
COL U 39 40 -17
Southend 39 35 -29
Grimsby 38 33 -27

Remaining Fixtures:

Barrow

Colchester A
Carlisle H
Exeter H
Orient A
PV H
Tranmere A
FGR A
Southend H
Exeter A

COL U

Barrow H
Oldham A
Walsall H
Southend H
Cheltenham A
Salford H
Tranmere A

Southend

Morecambe A
Crawley H
Exeter A
Colchester A
Orient H
Barrow A
Newport H

Grimsby

Cheltenham H
Bradford A
Bolton H
Morecambe H
Oldham A
Exeter A
PV H
Cambridge A

Make no mistake it is still too close for comfort and whatever happens we need to win at least three more of our games (Barrow, Walsall, Southend) and then any other points are priceless.

Grimsby and Southend are still very much favourites for Relegation.

HM had inspired the team in the second half on Friday and perhaps we were unlucky not to have secured all three points. Tommy Smith clocked up his 400th career appearance against the Trotters.

Ainsley and Kwame are back from International duty, but I do not think either will start today. They will be needed for the run in.

So, what about the team today:

Gerken

Welch-Hayes Eastman Smith Clampin

Lapslie Pell Stevenson

Senior Wiredu Nouble

Subs:

George Tchamadeu Doherty Cowan-Hall Chilvers Folivi Brown

Now against Tranmere we should have scored four goals given the chances that we managed to squander. Gerry has already suggested a good omen for today after the wheel fell off his barrow. I reckon that it is about time that we won a game handsomely which will improve confidence, improve goal difference, and move us to 43 points, within touching distance of safety.

Something like 3-0 today will work wonders for the team.

The weather today will be 5 degrees c in Colchester with a 10% chance of precipitation and mainly sunny conditions. It is a gloriously sunny but cold day in Durham after a covering of overnight snow and so the match should be played in ideal conditions at JSCS.

Big positives; Brendan Sarpong-Wiredu who has been advanced to the striking role and a vastly improved Courtney Senior who has added more guile to his play. Ryan Clampin brings a real plus to the left back position and Big Frank is always able to put in a solid performance.

I remain optimistic after an improved performance at Bolton, and we should all enjoy the game today.

Keep the faith.

I would sooner Lapslie alongside Pell and Wiredu forward instead of lazy Harriott. We already have one maverick in Senior. Two of them is a luxury.

To be fair, Lapslie did limp off on Friday.

I agree Noah but just maybe the thought is Lapslie, after so much time out would struggle. Is he a sub?

We probably need to score first and then shut up shop. But with the selected team we will need a two goal buffer as Senior, Brown and Harriott always put us at risk given how often they lose the ball showboating and then don't put in a defensive shift. I am nervous without a Lapslie or Chilvers and three vulnerabilies, albeit on their day all matchwinners .....let us hope it is that day.

Luke Norris scores;
Mikael Mandron scores two goals
About time we did!
Now Ian Henderson...two goals
It seems as though players need to "leave" to find their scoring potential.

Barrow score all their goals in final quarter. We need another to give us breathing space, but so far so good.

Crawley on 52 points have obviously decided that they don't need to bother and have rolled over against Oldham

Have to think they will fold at Southend too.

After Ainsley's international travels I would replace him with Stevenson or Folivi

We're not currently good enough for any better fate. If we're honest we all expected them to equalize. We don't have or deploy the necessary equipment to be better. Grim times indeed.

Positive thought?
Unbeaten over the Easter holiday. Wanted three points, settle for two.
Onwards and upwards guys.
