Cheltenham v Crawley.

I predict a draw but only because I'm a glass half full type of guy.

It really depends on how many goals we give you. We look ok when we go forward but we are a shambles at the back. Good players who don't appear to talk to each other on the pitch.

I'm hoping Camara gets a run out after his spectacular goal against Birmingham. He is a bit of a Bambi but he is also quick and not afraid to shoot.

If your defence isn't great I'd expect Sellars and Eisa to cause a lot of problems, and we've conceded a few ourselves in the first two games so would bet on BTTS. I'll say 2-1 to us but given all the optimism after our win at Oxford, keeping hold of Pell and drawing West Ham in the cup I wouldn't be surprised if we lost. Would be a very Cheltenham thing to do...

Confidence is high (albeit after one midweek game) the new lads are going to look to impress in front of the home crowd. I'm going for a 3 - 1 home win.

Another unnecessary match thread. Pointless. Won't get past a page.
Nobody forcing you to look at it mate...

Wasn't a great game but thought we just about deserved the win. Neither team looked particularly threatening and one moment of quality won it, great cross from Storer and a good header from Eisa who looks a real find from non league.

Working today (shift work...without an f) but listening to the Ifollow ap and it seems we tried to give a couple of goals away.

We are in doodoo land though.

Game wasn't helped by the worst refereeing performance I have ever seen at Whaddon Road, and that's for both teams.

On at least 3 occasions the ref (and his incompetent linesman) got basic decisions the wrong way around when the ball went out of play. He tried to let things go, but in doing so he lost control of the players which in turn made a not obviously dirty game suddenly look like there was going to be a brawl after every challenge.

Onto the game itself, we more than deserved the win today and despite Crawley having a ton of possession in the first half, they never really looked like scoring. In the second half, we basically camped in their half with them having the odd foray up the pitch for a corner. That being said, I don't recall their keeper having to make a save in the second half.

I thought the ref did well in the first half let the game flow and was pretty low key, he was more concerned with being the players mate.
