Although not ideal having the game postponed and the extra fixture congestion this may cause around Christmas could this free week have actually helped the squad. We are now able to get an extra weeks training into McAtee ready for a start on Saturday and extra time on the training pitch in 11 v 11's for Scannell, Grant and John Lewis. Also Wright should be back involved.
Thoughts?

Pretty much what you said. Don’t think we’ll be worse off than anyone else congestion wise.

I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

It is just as likely somebody else will pick up a knock in training.

There is never a right or wrong way to look at these things - similarly when we hope our next opponent has 2 men sent off and play extra time they look as fresh as daisies by the weekend.

Nothing seems to be going our way at the moment- yesterday's results went against us again and we really do need to up our game in all areas if we are going to be in the shake up at the end of the season.

A good transfer window would give us a better chance and it will be instructive to see if we make any signings when the window opens to show our intent.

I had a similar thought yesterday. Further to the potential benefits injury and fitness-wise, next week’s game at Dagenham currently looks a little less scary than it did a couple of weeks ago. They’re one of the few sides below us in the form guide, and only above King’s Lynn and Dover.

Can’t take anything as given, we’ve lost to far poorer sides than the Daggers in recent weeks, but we should at least now go into that game free of excuses.

Yup, also everyone else in the top 10 other than County & the Daggers who have both played 18 are now level on 17 games which gives a clearer view in my mind.

We're 4 points of the top with 29 games to go, and still to play the 3 teams above us twice. Personally it's still the play off's I'd reckon.

Credibility, I would describes as “Iffy”

However, would be a good signing if so.

Unusual that nothing has been said on social media
