Marshall

Wisdom  Menghi  Edmundson  Buchanan

Jozwiak  Shinnie  Knight  Lawrence

      Sibley

CKR      

Would like to start with Stretton in a 4-4-2 if he is fit to play and move Sibley into any of the midfield positions (except for Shinnie's), but I don't think he'd be given a full 90 if fit anyway.

Defence is weaker than usual so I've chosen Marshall over Roos as he seems to command the back line better and be more vocal which will hopefully help Menghi.

Only just had surgery. Might be available for the last 3 games

You're stretching the definition of 'senior' with some of those players too. 😞

It's extraordinary that 6 of those 9 injuries were picked up in the first 1.5 games after the international break weren't they? 

Well, maybe that's not true for Edmundson...

Possibly the worst ever line-up I've picked for a Derby game.

Try and do what we did in the reverse fixture, frustrate them as much as possible, kill the game and we might fluke something with a set piece or they might leave space behind for Lawrence and Jozwiak's pace. They might not be as disciplined as they're already up.

I don't trust Mengi and Wisdom as CB's in a back 4 or McDonald after the last game, Just get as many bodies back and leave as little room as possible for them.

Probably won't stop him. Might put the toddler first xi out.

Not the DCFC I know they won't.

I know there was no alternative in the Chorley FA match but we are not in a position to field anything but our strongest possible line-up here on in.

We could stay up/go down on goal difference this season.

Damage limitation is the name of the game!

Tragic, but there it is!
