I see they won 0-1 today to move 5th in the table - it’s likely to be a challenging match!!

I would like our team to be 442.with flexibility to go 433

Heath
Reynolds, Collard, Dolman, Brown
Gosnell Tyler or Johnson, Acquaye, Hicks, Farrell
Loraine, Dove

MacDonald and Ashton not available.

Subs Cooper, Casey, Curtis, Bowen, Slinn (what has happened to him lately, is he injured? I presume Akubine is no longer with us.
Not sure how many subs we are allowed in FA Cup games.

Really hoping for a win but would be happy with replay.

Some good money to be won this year.

I’d rather see Heath more central our goal looks a little exposed with him in line with the six yard box😉. Don’t think we would have to go “from” for the subs as I’m sure your allowed 6 in the FA Cup.

7 subs allowed in the FA Cup. Shanks and Collard in for the two missing from last week's team, and Hicks has to start in place of Curtis too. I'd probably start with Johnson instead of NGT as well; Nat's done well so far considering he's stepped up 3 divisions, but I thought he struggled a bit last week, and Johnson always looks a threat when given the chance.

A back 4 is an absolute must, preferably a 442.

Can someone enlighten me why we played with an unfit striker for 75 minutes!!! If everybody can see it from the sidelines then surely peaksy can, unfortunately as ever our manager only makes changes after we go a goal down he needs to be pro active not reactive but he's not going to change now unfortunately. Another early fa cup exit down to our own failings I'm afraid.

The problem is we have a very limited budget to work with which Peaksy has worked wonders with each season. We are getting to the point where we need to push the boat out a little to ensure we can compete fully especially in something as important as the FA Cup. I’m not condoning stupid money at going crazy but just a few extra hundreds to attract the striker or winger that we are clearly lacking taking us from a good team to a very good team that can challenge in the league and take us deeper into cup compositions. We attract good crowds and more success should increase attendances. Very disappointing to go out so early again with so much money available to progress a few rounds.
