Hoping Harrop is given a start, good player, would probably mean moving Maguire out wide in place of Mavididi though, unless Hugill drops to the bench.

I'm not confident against this lot without Pearson, can see them waltzing through midfield if its just Gally, Browne or DJ in front of the defence. I'd play Welsh ahead of Gallagher.

I don't think we will line up like this but I wouldn't mind something like below:

Maxwell
Fisher, Huntington, Spurr, Earl
Welsh
Barkhuizen, Browne, Johnson, Harrop
Maguire
Hugill isn't a guaranteed starter now we have Maguire as he can play the lone front man role well, I think that midfield would allow Barkhuizen to play more centrally too, with Browne dropping in front of Fisher to cover. /Football Manager mode over.

Not too confident myself about this tonight. This won't be the team but I'd like to see.

Maxell

Fisher
Huntington
Spurr
Earl

Browne
Johnson

Barkhuizen
Harrop
Horgan

Maguire

Think Horgan deserves a start and would like to see Maguire given a go on his own up top.

That team would probably get bullied and concede a couple from corners like so won't happen.

AN likes pace which is why I think Horgan is struggling for game time, he's not slow but Barkhuizen, Mavididi, Robinson, Harrop and Maguire are all quicker.

I still don't have a real opinion on the guy, looked good in his first couple of games but faded and hasn't had a sniff in this league this season. Suppose we just have to be patient with the Irish lot, this is a much quicker and physical league than what they were used to, although Maguire has looked the part instantly.

We were absolutely quality tonight again, Maguire is fucking incredible. Bring on Brum.

P.S love beating Warnock.

We were quality last night, on another level to Cardiff who are somehow sat second in the league.

Maguire and Harrop are different class, Barkhuizen terrifies defenders with his pace and Hugill is a constant pain in the ass. Welsh really stepped up in Pearson's place. Defence outstanding again. Just how good is Ben Davies?

No Cunningham, Pearson, Clarke or Johnson in the squad. Plus options like Robinson, Horgan, Gallagher and Mavididi on the bench. Can't get ahead of ourselves but it's promising stuff.
