After the disappointing result against Walsall and some would say performance let's hope we can up it against Salford and get a result.

At where we are now I think I'd take a point just to take the early pressure off but three would be great.

Thoughts?

Salford are away at Everton tomorrow night. Even without a crowd you'd expect them to put out a strong side - it's just too dangerous against Premier League opposition, second string or not. The gulf between Chelsea and our first team this time last year was absolutely astonishing.

Assuming they put out something close to their best side, there can be no excuses on Saturday - at least not fitness related ones. I felt coming into this season that we might see some strange results throughout the leagues early doors, and while there haven't been as many as I thought Lincoln beat Bradford 5-0 at Valley Parade this evening, despite the Bantams having more possession, more shots and more corners.

Physical conditioning has probably never been more important in professional football than it is right now. For once in these weird and frustrating times we appear to have an advantage on Saturday - it's important we take it and build some momentum.

Now that the wage cap has been brought in, money shouldn't come into it as much now.

I mean, it's not like they have a billionaire backer and we have got two brass farthings to rub together, is it?

Oh, hang on..........

Rumour has it that Salford are part owned by some former Man Utd players. Anyone else heard this?

Very different circumstances. No clubs have been able to have what you would call a normal pre-season and players at this level are still recovering from going five months from being able to play or even train competitively.

To go from virtually nothing to playing Saturday, Wednesday, Saturday is incredibly tough on players’ bodies, particularly when your opposition has had a week of recovery.

I don't want to speak to soon but if we win on Saturday, Macca taking our last penalty could turn out to be a good decision...

Or if someone else had stepped up we would have a home tie with Newcastle lined up
