Something For The Easter Weekend
On the subject of Elliot Richards, anyone who may follow the forums and/or twitter may have seen he has been getting a new tattoo on his lower leg. (maybe a reason for his omission on Saturday) Seems a bit odd to get such a thing done during the season, especially when you will be wearing shin pads, footie socks and getting mucky and sweaty. Surely with scabby skin and blood around you are risking infection?
nyway, the two games over the Easter weekend sees a chance for us to get some more points and put us in with a decent shout of a top half finish. By the time you read this we may well have won, drawn or lost our Good Friday home game against Gillingham, in a convincing, battling or abject fashion, followed by the away game against Crewe. Both games should be tough as both the Gills and Crewe are pushing to nab a play-off place, but then who knows what either game will or will have thrown up and I am sure Mark McGhee will have the team well prepared for both match-ups and we will probably see the team reshuffled slightly over both games as players look to impress the manager before we head into the summer and next season.
That`s it for me as this week as I head into a busy Easter period with football and family commitments. Hopefully we can pick up those points over the games and push ourselves into the top-half (or at least close) of the table for the first time since God knows how long. Whatever you are up to this holiday period I hope you have a good one and I hope the Sun makes a slight return
