DPL v Wigan A

Wigan are good, especially away from home. Unless the majority of our players, who prefer not to tackle or even get close to the opposition when they have the ball, change their ways, Wigan will dominate possession and lay siege to our goal.

Unlike Wellens, who frequently asserted his belief that his team had played well (when they hadn’t), McS recognises that so many of the squad he is stuck with are indolent and he seems to be doing all he can to shake them into the reality of the fundamental need to re-obtain the ball. And to recognise that receiving a pass involves running towards the ball if an interception is possible and in anticipation of a pass, making surely that you make yourself available in space, running into that space as necessary. And that the same applies when there is a throw-in which is something McS has drawn their attention to.

So the question is really the scale of the loss. I’ll say 1-3 (Agard/Seaman)

Let's hope Rovers All blacks become as successful as their Rugby equivalents. Watford did recall Dahlberg as Gmac told them he wouldn't be first choice for the rest of the season. It's a gamble but allows him more outfield options which we desperately need.

If we play on the frost covers we'll be invisible! Then again we usually are. Game on touch and go due to frozen pitch.

0-3 to Wigan
Watching the Challenge cup on iplayer as I can't sit through another rovers game just yet - another observation from the last home game was that the attendance figure was 5600 but I would estimate that there were under 4000 in the ground - perhaps a lot of season ticket holders have attending?

I can't see us getting anything out of this one. Rovers 1- 3 Wigan. Agard to score on his debut.

I think that they will have too much for us.
Rovers 0-3 Wigan
I fear that it could be more

Well I suppose you could call it a better-than-expected performance to lose only 2-1, but our problem is still the very few (2) shots on target. It was difficult to judge what Agard can supply as he hardly got good service from the rest of the team. Another worry was Jones at times was back to his "rooted to the spot" mode.
What happened to the young lady who was going to be the referee? I do not know where they dug up the actual ref as he was terrible, like many of the refs we see these days. At least the "game stopped by towel" gave us a little comic relief.
Afterwards I watched the Villa vs. Man U game and it was good to see Jacob Ramsey score one and have an assist on the other. Maybe he benefitted from his short time with the Rovers!

I don't think Gary has thrown in the towel just yet as he couldn't get his hands on one today.

Signs of improvement but still a makeshift, unsettled side with lots of inexperience. Still a very long way to go to be competitive enough to stay up. Nevertheless I feel Gary does have what it takes to create a decent side in the future. However its still likely to be in League 2.

We all scored points from Saturday's game, so relatively nothing much has changed.

I suspect that the next result will be less predictable.
