I'll be delighted with a draw, and I reckon we'll lose it 2-1.

 

They'll be confident, 60% of their points and 60% of their goals have come at home, they've only conceded 9 goals at home, losing only once (to Brentford).

 

They've four players on double figures, we have one.

They're up against the team with the best away record though. Them having a go at us might help us.

 

I expect Hughton will have done his homework and will have a player assigned to mark shelvey out of the game. If he isn't given any room to spray it around, we look ordinary.

That's not how they play though. It's conservative, deliberate, counter attack and set pieces. Just like it was for us under Hughton.

sounds like it could be a boring draw then which wouldn't be the worst result. 

 

Trouble is, they've more chance of nicking it. We look a bit wobbly at the back and our strike force isn't full of confidence either.

I don't think Darlow shouting for it gets him off the hook automatically like, he didn't need to come charging off his line like that which put Dummett under pressure.

I'm not sure about that.  I think there is an argument that he shouldn't have come out but all Dummett had to do was leave the ball and he wouldn't have been under pressure.

I disagree there like.  Elliot did really well last season but I think regardless of a couple of daft mistakes, Darlow looks the better keeper.  I can't think of a keeper we've had in the last 30 years who's better than him at dealing with crosses.  

To be fair, that's a low bar you've set.

I think they were both to blame a bit. Agree about sticking with Darlow though

Darlow's got a long way to go to make me feel comfortable about our keeper situation.  Elliot did better than I expected when he was first given the chance, but I'm not convinced about anyone, tbh, not even Woodman.  He is highly touted, by our scouts I'd imagine, which doesn't mean much until he plays on the 1st team.

 

If we go up, I would like to see us get an experienced, athletic goaltender with good situational awareness. Not one of Darlow's strengths.
