Looking at the stats, it seems they are not scoring but not conceeding many. Will this be a draw? I don't know, I quite fancy this one.

Tyson seems to have gotten a glowing report, good debut?

MK Dons are a good side but I will go for a 1-0 win to Notts. Things need to improve, so chances must be taken from here on. COYP!

Alan Smith is a player I'd expect to be seeing a lot more of, they do have a talented squad to be fair but names on paper doesn't gurantee you anything (just look at us). Last time we were pushing to get back level, they ended up scoring after a chance we had. Lively game! I just hope we perform like we did on Saturday personally.

Now we are stronger with Liddle, Leacock and Dumbuya. Hopefully we will see a little more consistancy!

I would hope we try two strikers, I'll keep saying this but Tyson yesterday would often be marked by 3 defenders when he was alone. If Murray had have come on, we might have distracted them and created space.

I have a feeling that the game will be very slow, I don't see us winning but another draw maybe. No reason we couldn't win, especially if Tyson gets stuck in again but I just think it will end 2-2.

good side mk dons, i would not expect to much but we could sneak a win.

i see this being a draw also.


I have this down as a draw, we could get more points than I predicted in our view of the upcoming games! That would be good.


The win is, pretty much, imperative IMO. It will not be easy but it is more than possible with Liddle & Tyson playing instead of Fotheringham & Showumni!

You're right it won't be easy, they have a good side but as mentioned they haven't been scoring freely as we know they can. Going on both of our form, I would have labelled this as the 0-0 draw but I do think we will see a few goals.

Liddle and Tyson are a big improvement over Fotheringham and Showumni!

Though I have to say I do like Showumni for his hard work.

The state of the pitch is a concern. It was bad before Saturday and hasn't had much time to recover. That might slow MK Dons down but it won't suit us either. I'd be happy with a draw but I reckon they will win 1-0. 

Yeah, same here. Upon entering the Kop, you could see that the pitch looked very muddy but when I went to take my seat and had a clear view of the pitch. It looked waterlogged! Not the worst, though puddles were forming and the sprinklers were still on. Mrs Trew said she disliked seeing this herself, so it might not happen on Tuesday.

I don't see the need to water it that much, it reminded me of Carlisle who went OTT with watering theirs.

tomorrow night is a must win we have said it before but after the loss and the draw on saturday we need to win and other games to go our way. If saturdays game/performance is to go on i think we will get a win a 1-0 it sounds harsh after the draw on saturday but at this point of the season every team will scrap for a win/anything to avoid the drop/go up. 

Here to a win much needed win

Aileen put on my facebook page - "it's to help level out the divots etc and help the ball run. Then it's forked to drain residual water." There was also rugby played on it yesterday as I went to watch Nottingham v Rotherham.

And our Rugby team handed Nottingham ANOTHER WHOOPING!!!!!

Seriously I hope you murder the plastic franchise shyte!!!!

We definitely need a win, draws are no good but I think it will be a draw, we will be leading 1-0 until the last 10 mins but we won't hang on and they will break our hearts with a late goal to make it 1-1

I said this often at the start of the season, draws are better than nothing at all. It's a shame CK couldn't have turned some of the defeats into draws, even three would look healthy about now. We are bound to lose games, so if we can turn these into draws and make sure we win the games which we dominate - perhaps, just slightly glimmer might be enough to see us survive.

I am sure the majority will agree it looks slim but a draw cannot be knocked, it's much better than losing in any scenario.

Quite lively but both sides lacked skill, MK Dons was a little dirty (as to be expected). They had Tyson marked and I think it was 'Spence' or something for them was a right little sod.

I didn't think we would score, good pen but very quiet.

That said both had chances to score more and MK Dons will not like Bart who kept us in the game. He made several top draw saves, especially 3 one on one's.
