I’m really trying to get excited for this one. A big ask as you’ll all know. But let’s give the boys the benefit of the (very hefty) doubt and get the win Saturday. 14 points above relegation and 14th place, one win will surely do it and we can put this season behind us and look forward to the Euros and then 2021/22.
Start an XI who aren’t going OOC and who have shown they’ll fight. I’d go, in a simple 4-4-2:
Bents - easy, done well all season.
Sess - only here on loan and will want to show Fulham he can cut it at RB should they be relegated.
Kalas - he’s a fighter, and these results will be hurting him. Plus he’ll want sharpness before the euros.
Mariappa - experienced and head strong. Won’t want to let Nige down.
Towler - academy product who will want to prove he’s up to it. Watford aside, he’s looked assured.
Semenyo - our brightest spark.
Han-Noah - in form and fights hard.
Nagy - poor on Monday for sure but more often than not does a good job. Will need to stay sharp before playing with Hungary at the euros.
Palmer - looks dangerous of late and has a bit of sparkle which we so need for creativity.
Conway - bound to work hard and want to prove himself. We’ve heard many good things from the club, let’s see it.
Wells - our best goal scorer. Scored Monday. Way off the pace of late I know, but surely our most likely to get a run going.
Cut out the soft goals and let’s get this bloody season wrapped. COYR.
