Unlikely to happen the way we play under Hughton, although I know we both want that score to happen Magsimus. Probably going to be a low scoring draw or a game that's seperated by just one goal.
It's a big game for Mark Bunn in goal today. He has played well so far deputising for international class John Ruddy, but the games he has started in so far (three league cup games including his epic performance vs Spurs, Southampton away in the league) were either no pressure affairs or he had very little to do. He has a big responsibility going into the next three months seeing as big John's box domination and concentration were vital to our compact system.
Fatty Holt needs to start putting the goals away again rather than just the pies. He has been working hard and playing well in general but hasn't been anywhere near as clinical with his chances as he was last season. Having only scored more than one goal in a league game once this season suggests that we're not taking our chances despite creating plenty. The lack of scoring puts far too much pressure on the back five to keep clean sheets in order to win.
Oh, and get in AFC!
