So as one of just 7 unbeaten sides left in the top 4 divisions, we'll be looking to carry that on tomorrow. Gonna be tough though, Crawley are decent and won their first away game under their Italian Gaffer away at Lincoln, which is some result.

We being draw specialists have drawn all 4 of our home games so far, but for the irst time this season we actually will have our proper kit. Will it be a good or bad omen?

We'll be joining in observing a minutes applause in the 59th minute in honour of Crawley fan Gill Courtnell, who recently lost her battle with cancer.

I posted in the match day thread that I think FGR will win but only by the odd goal. I just can't believe we will win three on the bounce.

I'm Mr stayaway fan at the moment. I've only seen one game this season due to work and play commitments and this is another I shall miss (bloody plastic, me!) but I've been told we are more direct than we have been over the last three seasons. I'm not a fan of hoof ball but nor am I Into faffing around with the ball. Hopefully, we are falling somewhere between the two stools.

If we can find a way to score that second goal that's been so elusive, we will win. Were a decent finisher away from getting it right. I'm sure that's being worked on!

A draw the most likely result, and my prediction but, I can't help thinking this game will be the one when we actually put the gloss on another decent performance and win it in style.
(Bullish Saturday morning feeling!).

We seemed to be trying to take the chances we made vs MK but nearly all the shots were tame or off target; as Stripes says, sort that and we'll have every chance of winning. Most of the rest of our game is in place.

Tav Campbell starting so looks like we'll be going two up front; no Grubb even on bench but hadn't heard he was crocked, maybe Cooper said something when he announced the line-up but can't get Youtube and twitter here ETA Radio just said Dayle is injured.

Grubb looks healthy and not limping, no way he deserves to be left out on merit.
Campbell can put chances away, so glad he's starting.

We have to be happy with that. Other than the first 15 minutes we totally dominated. Crawley a good side but didn't come decisively looking for three points. And so glad we sneaked one in when they momentarily switched off.

Our goal to chance ratio must improve if we are to be possible play-off contenders, but otherwise a great team performance, and worthy of the undefeated run.

Great entertainment too.

Said we wouldn't win three in a row.

Gutted for big Joe McNerney. Can't get into the side, comes in for an injury in the game and gets sent if in the 92 minute. He is a decent stopper type centre half but he could have just blown his chance to impress the new boss.

He was trying too hard to impress.
My mate said 5 minutes before ref sent him for an early bath that he would get a red.

We're now the only unbeaten team left in league 2. Who would have thought that would happen?

We played some good stuff. We're like a league 2 Man City with a bit less cutting edge. Patient possession, take most set-pieces short, intricate one touch play around the box. Just need to have a bit more in that final third.

A bit more cutting edge and we'd be promotion contenders imo, missing Doidge but can't complain we're a much better side then last season. Pretty confident we can stay well clear of trouble.

I reckon he is in line for a double fine, one for the red card and the other for not bringing his shirt from the changing room, it must have taken the best part of five minutes to sort that out.
