Cheltenham Vs U's - Durham's Cup Preview

After a very bright start to the season John McGreal takes his charges to the quaintly named Jonny-Rocks Stadium. Apparently, Jonny-Rocks is a high-end Chauffeur and business travel transport company (I looked it up).
Gary Johnson is the manager and they have had a poor start to the season with league defeats but will be looking to secure a victory in the Carabao Cup against confident Colchester. Extra time has been scrapped so if the match finishes all square we move straight to penalties in the conventional ABAB format.
JM is likely to make number of changes which makes considerable sense with a tough fixture at Mansfield on Saturday. However, the League Cup offers the opportunity to go toe to toe with one of the bigger teams and we should not therefore either take the opposition or the competition too lightly on Tuesday evening.
It would be apposite to give Bailey Vose the opportunity to get a game between the sticks and play Ryan Gondoh and Brandon Comley in midfield. Harry Pell should be on the bench against his old team whilst the predicted bench will still look very strong if required.

Most disappointingly is the news that Norris remains side-lined with injury niggles.
Weather should be reasonable and the pitch good.
The Super U’s will be looking to maintain their unbeaten start to the season. Winning becomes infectious.
Safe journey to the travelling faithful.
Enjoy the game and 1-0 to the U’s
