Two changes - Marquis and Bolton in for Close and McCrorie.

No return for Cannon yet.

Looks like something happened to Harrison in the warm up, with Hawkins now playing and Evans coming onto the bench. Nothing serious I hope.

Seems like it was a choice between Wembley and the league, still got a FA cup tie to look forward to, a trip to Wembley and you would have thought with games in hand and our side that play-offs should be on the cards - famous last words, really can't see automatic now, we would have to win every game

I guess that "progress" this season would have to be winning the EFL Trophy, 5th Round FA Cup and then losing the Play-Off Final.

I confess. I decided not to go. Hats off to those brave souls now making their way back while I sit comfortably watching the Leicester / Man. City match. Results didn’t go our way today but still some way to go.

There's no doubt in my mind that Arsenal and Wembley are going to prove crucial distractions this season and probably cause us to miss out on even the play-offs unlike last season. I am frustrated that Jackett has not concentrated solely on the league and instead has gone for progress in two too many competitions which will inevitably bring a lack of focus, tiredness and disruption to the squad (e.g missing Harrison today who is a vital player). I suppose we will be pleasing the owners with the considerable revenue involved with these cups.

The reason we lost in the play offs last season was because over two legs we did nothing.

The cock up against Peterborough was what cost us promotion and that disappointment rolled over into play offs.

Coventry play Rotherham Tuesday, Fleetwood play Sunderland.

We can be third before anyone kicks a ball on Saturday.

Man City should be banned from Europe for that away kit

Seriously?? You are writing off the season over one game?
Jeez some people need to take a chill pill and a reality check

Tuesday night you could put down to 'just one of those things' - a misjudgement in a crowded box, a momentary slip, whatever but yesterday cost us a point and it was difficult to understand why it happened. Yes, he made a couple of good saves after that but now the alarm bells are ringing.
We have a solid centre back area with good competition on the left and right. I don't see a problem with bringing McGillivray back for the run-in because he commands his area better. Don't quite get the reason KJ dropped him in the first place as he was performing well - certainly no worse than Bass - at the time.

Just watched the highlights and I think that is a bit harsh on Bass - he got down to cut out the cross but it just ballooned up to their guy for a tap in. More blame for the goal should be on Raggett for a terrible first touch in the box which lost possession and Bolton for letting the guy swan past him.

Let's face it: we weren't good enough.

From the BBC radio commentary, we had no shots on goal in the first half when the wind was against us - no shots at all? Really?

We only had 7 shots in the second half with only one on target.

By contrast, Fleetwood had 8 shots with four on target - according to the BBC website - including the winning goal.

Actually Curtis hit the bar in the first half!

My lads were training at Roko on Saturday morning, right next to the PFC area, and Andy Cannon walked past. We asked him why he wasn't playing, and apparently, it's never been his glute that's been the problem, it's his hamstring. It's just being very niggly. Nice bloke, thohgh, happy to chat.

Chimes to ring out at 3pm tomorrow

So nothing happened then?
