  • 8' An early chance for Leaburn! He flicks Rak-Sakyi's cross just wide of the far post.

    Much as I like that front three, would like to see Kanu starting...

    Instead of who, though?

    Rak-Sakyi and Leaburn are in great form, key involvement with assists and goals. On the left side Campbell is doing his job steadily and quite a handful at times, again well involved. And all 3 are working well together.

    There's not really a place for Kanu right now, except from the bench.

    I know JRS is on form,and we all know what he can do, but he ain't here next year and we very much are here next year without him, so just be good to give Kanu a few games rather like Campbell, that's all really...
    Campbell has got his chance only because Curbs' favourite Cory Blackett ;) is out injured.

    And although, like you, I look forward to Kanu getting his chance, he's likely to have to wait a bit longer.
    He's still very raw and right now, our forward line is inexperienced and young enough as it is.

    Holden is trying to build momentum and team spirit, obviously with directive to finish the season in the top 10 - and is picking his best team available, which naturally includes a bang in form JRS. Leaburn is irreplaceable in this current squad. Kanu will get his chance sooner or later, whenever circumstances permit, no doubt.
  • Dobson covers and snuffed out the danger as usual. 

  • 11' Bright move from the Gas but the ball ricochets off Finley for a goal-kick.

  • 12' Another nice Rovers passing move ends with an offside flag.
