I'm Getting Very Worried


We haven't been in this situation for a number of years but I am definitely getting very worried that this team is on the cusp of doing something worthwhile.

The play offs are an almost certainty and a top 3 finish would be more than I could have hoped for after watching the 0 - 5 thrashing by Torquay.

Dave Challinor seemed to me, at the beginning, to be uncertain of his best eleven and formation but after the Torquay game he signed Armstrong and changed to a 5 - 3 - 2 formation. He also fielded a settled side and the major stroke has been to play Oates (whose signing I doubted) up front. Let's hope we no longer see a striker up front on his own again. I know he has his critics but Featherstone has been outstanding.

The team is by no means perfect but I think Challinor (our best signing for years) knows this and is aware of what needs doing. I think we need cover at left back and another striker but what I like about the team is when a regular is missing for whatever reason, we seem to have someone who can slot into the team straight away.
"However, at this time of the season, I'll take 1 - 0 victories every time."

I think we miss too many chances and the front two need other players to step up and add a few goals to the tally. However, at this time of the season, I'll take 1 - 0 victories every time. I also think someone will get a hammering from us one day when every chance will be converted.

My two fears are losing out on goal difference or getting to Wembley and the fans not being able to go. Let's hope my fears are unfounded.
