Connolly Or Guly Up Front On Saturday ?

Who will Nigel Adkins play up front at Pride Park
For the visit of Watford Nigel Adkins rested David Conolly who had picked up a minor knock, however with the two week break the Irish striker is now likely to be fit, so does the manager keep a winning side or restore Connolly to the starting line up.
Its a difficult decision in that Guly played well and scored against the Hornets, whereas Connolly had had four barren games in goalscoring terms, although some would say that this wasnt entirely his fault as the midfield had struggled to get the ball to him.
Guly for that matter has been scoring both from midfield and in his run out up front in the last game.
The decision might be made a little easier after Steve De Ridder's performance against Watford, although it showed the odd touch of skill, in the main he drifted out of the game the longer it went on and this could be the clinching factor for Adkins, he might see De Ridder as more of an impact player coming off the bench than a starter.
If thats the case then it could be likely that we will revert to the original front running duo of Connolly & Lambert with Guly resuming his midfield role.
Of course it might not be that simple, especially after Lee Holmes little cameo role against Watford,

A Dale Fan Abroad - Reflections on Burton Albion 1 Rochdale 2 by DaleAddict
Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
