I really, really, really hope that Williams can stay fit this time and play until the end of the season.

me too....happy if he has to be coaxed back, play one, rest one, play a couple, rest, etc

Still wonder whether this might be a 4141, with one player as a true DM "screen".

Yeh, something tells me it would be unwise to flog him over the many games between the international break and the new year. December is brutal as always and he (and everyone else) will need resting at times.

Actually once this international break is done, we have one midweek game after the first weekend back, but between then and Christmas it's one game a week which is quite useful for easing him and others back in.

What has Chris Martin got to do to be dropped?  Shag Pearson's missus??

That's a balsa-wood looking mf as well. 

This isn't looking pretty.

Just hope the large travelling contingent can lift the lads.

Midfielders aged 18, 20, 23 and 25. Maybe 200 or 250 championship games between them? It's not what you want is it really.

As Fleming has just said on RobinsTV there's a huge need for Kalas, Weimann, Martin and Bentley to marshal the younger players and lead them through today.

Is it really? I hadn't realised. December is normally 7 or so matches in the month. Might help having a bit more rest.

Yep just checked. Only 5 games in December this season.

Manure have lost, so there's already a bright spot today.

Bernardo Dasilva tucking in that second goal was the perfect demonstration of busting a gut to make something out of an almost impossible situation.

Fear we are going to miss Atkinson big-time today.

Best we can hope for is a lethargic, under-par performance from Coventry (and hopefuly a red card), but that will still probably be enough to give them a win.

The end of the month and beginning of January is busy as ever, but I think there's usually a midweek game somewhere in December whereas this season there isn't.

Vyner in a 2 and Bakinson in a 2 scares me

I don't think anyone's confident, but it's about as balanced as we can put out given the injuries. The midfield needs discipline, too often they go wandering. If one goes, the other sits, but don't get too far apart. They need to feed the wide areas and get the ball forward quicker. Could go very wrong, but could be positive today. Out of adversity, etc.

Semenyo, Conway and Williams all back training….today too soon….Nige said the two senior ones of the three will be back.

Yep. Hopefully we can do enough to get a point today and then we have more quality to pick from in the next games.

I think we have to go toe to toe with them today. We have 2 centre backs with lots of pace, 2 attacking full backs. Technically gifted midfielders.

This isn't a solid looking side so we need to get it down and pass the ball. It's what they should be good at. Maybe not here but I feel they would be if that's how we played.

I was thinking the other day O'Dowda did play up top with Martin I think in that great game he had away at QPR was it? He was moved up into a front 2 second half.

If Weimann and Martin continue as they had been in most recent games together then that is another option.

I wouldn't even mind a return of the diamond but it's likely 442. If so then I think we know what will happen in that midfield against Coventry's 3 😩

Been listening to BBCRB with Geoff...sounds like its gonna be a great day at Yate.

On Robinstv now, interested to hear Challis.  Good comments from him re Massengo not flitting around too much, maintain his position.

Robinstv says not available in your country for me, tried germany and the US
