This has to be tempered with the fact that Iyseden Christie is temporarily no longer with us and we will have to get used to a pairing of Andy White with James Constable for a couple of games. Constable should continue to get on the score sheet but I'm not so sure about Whitey. Can he prove us all wrong?
We have no injuries following the Southport game but Cambridge are, still, a team in crisis. They lost at home again yesterday to a rampant Nigel Cloughs Burton Albion and had their keeper, Paul Crichton, sent off for up-ending a NCBA striker in injury time. That was his second sending off of the season and he should miss the game tomorrow but it is believed that Cambridge might make an appeal.
Their second string keeper, Shane Herbert, is also believed to have pulled a hamstring in morning training prior to the game and he too may not be available. That will leave just a 16yr old Youth team keeper, Phil Smith, to call on but there is talk of asking the FA if an emergency keeper can be bought in outside the transfer window. If that was the case then former keeper Scott Howie will be asked to play.
They have a couple of players out injured with Tommy Jasczcun out with a fracture to his big toe, David Bridges with an ankle injury and Adam Davies with an Achilles injury. They have no other injury worries and Jon Brady will be playing because his one game ban doesn't kick in until January 2nd and he will miss the Cambridge v FGR game. Not as stated on our official website, the game against us.
Touch wood, this should be a game we could win but we have the worry that without Christie we may not be able to score goals. He hasn't scored in the last two games and we've still won them both so there's no saying that we will miss him short term.
