1) They showed they are competitive earlier in the season with some good wins, but in the last month they've slipped to 20th and seem to have just realised they are in the relegation dogfight so we can expect some serious resistance.
2) They are well rested compared to our lads. They last played on Friday so will have had a full 8 days rest before the match.
3) Parky has hinted that he may rest a couple of players for this one. Wouldn't surprise me if Karacan came in for Prats and maybe Long for ALF which worries me but we'll have to wait and see.
If Parky rests Prats for this - and TBF he's worked his nads off these last 2 weeks - I can understand it, but surely it would be better to wait for the Chesterfield game if possible? Without his closing down we tend to sit deeper and that could turn this game into a banana skin. We have a full week off after this game until a home match against second from bottom Chesterfield which would seem to be a better option for resting key players IMO.
Anyway I think we should win it but I'm worried that we'll make harder work of it than we should. I'm guessing 1 - 2 with us getting a late winner after Parky realises we need to get further up the pitch.
