Will be VERY interesting to see the team and the shape for this one ! will we stick with the same team that performed so brightly on Tuesday and still with a 3-5-2 shape or do we bring in Cropper or Mills up front for Baker ? personally I wouldnt change the back 3 or the midfield 3 but maybe Cropper for Baker ? tough call for the manager, would be fantastic if we can upset the apple-cart in this one. UTA

Would love it if we beat them tomorrow!!


hopefully a 90th minute winner and give their fans a mooney

We have nothing to lose tomorrow FCUM are expected to win easily so hopefully our lads can play with no fear and im predicting a 2-1 win to the Albs with Titch scoring the first and Jay Matthews coming off the bench to snatch victory and send the Witton fans into ecstasy
