The bitter end

Wednesday 21st February.

In an attempt to try to give some balance to the defence again, Macari has today taken West Ham youngster Shaun Byrne on trial for two games. The 20 year old is a left sided defender and is allowed to play in the next two reserve games, if he impresses will be allowed to stay with Town until the end of the season. It looks unlikely that he will be able to figure in Saturday’s visit to Burnley who inflicted Fulham’s 5th defeat of the season last night. I just hope that Macari doesn’t persist with the same defensive line up as last week, I would favour Craig Armstrong at left back (he’s the only one we’ve got), with Steve Jenkins in his more accustomed right back role. In the centre I would be inclined to ‘rest’ Adie Moses in favour of Jon Dyson, or if he’s not 100% then give Kevin Gray a start. Whilst on the subject of defenders, Thomas Heary is about to sign a 2 year extension to his contract, which following his rather unconvincing display on Saturday I would imagine he won’t be able to get hold of the pen fast enough!

Our bad week continued tonight with just one fixture in division 1. Nottingham Forest at home to Sheffield Wednesday, a home banker? No chance, Wednesday won 1-0 to lift the struggling South Yorkshire side a little further away from Town.

A big thank you to Machala for putting up with me doing this and Ian for his support and my Mum for her proof reading.
