 Team v QOS
Topic Originator: Bucuresti Par

OFW

Comrie
Gaspuitus
Connolly
Edwards

Thomas
Dorrans
Pybus
Kennedy

Wighton
O`Hara

Subs: Mehmet, Jones, Macdonald, Allan, Dow, Cole & Todorov

Assuming that Watson is still missing and Wilson and McCann also, if McCann is fit enough for the bench I`d have him there. If Dorrans is injured then Allan comes in for him.

Four at the back has been a lot more solid so stick with that. Thomas for Dow who been quite poor the last two games. O`Hara to press and run in behind, Wighton to drop off the centre backs and try to pick up the ball from there.

Rarely have I seen a decent game down on this astro, but if we are to do anything we have to keep the ball on the floor, there is little height in our midfield and Wighton is powderpuff in the air despite being quite tall.

Depends who's fit and available really, Dorrans took a right sore one and I'd imagine it was in agony the next day, not sure he'll be in.

That will be a pity toi Grant as I think his 2nd half against the Rovers was his best display in a pars shirt.

East End Park is a symbol of all that is DAFC.

For me it’s got to be the team that started the 2nd half on Wednesday night

It`s likely to be the same team that started the second half, if Dorrans is ok. Dow for Thomas is a 50/50 call, Dom has good technique which is more suited to artificial surfaces (or very good grass ones), Dow gives better movement.

The only other shape I can think of trying, to try and get us scoring more, would be a narrower midfield 3 with Kennedy central behind the strikers - both full backs pushing forward to give the width. Something like...

OFW

Comrie
Gaspuitus
Connolly
Edwards

Cole
Dorrans
Pybus

Kennedy

Wighton
O`Hara

Actually it could kind of be a diamond in midfield, with Dorrans deepest. Another option perhaps?

Agreed , and start the 1st half with the same attitude as Wednesdays 2nd half as well !

Be interested to see QoTS, lots of players I haven't watched before, is there right back Max Johnson a relative of AJ?


Outwith that there was only about 5 players from last year who started for them last week, they were missing players like Cochrane and Roy who you'd imagine would be starters, they've also got Innes Cameron, who along with Lee Connolly played for Alloa last year so Grant should know what to expect.

Thomas comes in for Dow IMO, the criticism of Thomas seemed to be his tracking back but Dow was very poor for that, especially in the first half against Raith.

Thomas did nothing again to merit a start, same team that started the 2nd half at Raith assuming Dorrans is fit if not Allan replaces him.

Doubt it, Grant, assuming you've spelt the players name correctly. AJ has a T in his surname.



Not your average Sunday League player.

There's every chance autocorrect has done me over there GG, the surname was meant to have a T in it, quite a young lad.

Reminds me that we had a left-back called Gavin Johnson. I think we signed him from Ipswich. He had been quite a player in his time but was on the wane by the time we got him.

To be fair to Thomas on Wednesday we completely parked the bus when he came on.

Dow also didn’t track back very much at all

I would have Cole over Allan today too, just worried about inexperience.
