    Excellent news. I think his injury and Hoilett loss of form forced us into the 4-4-1-1 we saw for a lot of our games.

    Ended 2-0 with Madine getting the other. I didnt realise NML was close to a return, so pleasant surprise him starting tonight.

    He did ok. Hasn't got that burst of pace yet, there was a lovely through ball played for him just before he came off and he was very frustrated that he hadn't been able to reach it. The plan was for him to come off after an hour and Jamie Veale was called over to replace him but he said he wanted to carry on, which he did till he scored his goal. It was an emphatic finish after some good build-up play. Madine took his chance well too to be fair, a good header off a perfect cross from Duffus.

    Only problem with his recovery, it's now winter , and his asthmatic condition may hinder a full or quick recovery ??

    He got plenty of game time under his belt then.

    A Mendez Laing at his best would be like a new signing. Hoilett has been so disappointing.

    I've said it before and was shot down, but I'd still be tempted to give Cameron Coxe a go at right back. Obviously Premier League football is a really hard baptism of fire, but Manga isn't a right back. I'd shift him inside and give Coxe a go, maybe in a home game that's more winnable.

    We done amid a similar thing last time we were in the premier league. We have Declan John a fun of games.

    I just canít see Warnkck doing it.

    I think Cunningham needs more time and we have Richards.

    Agreed - the only way I can see Cameron Coxe, or any other youngster, playing Premier League football for us this season is if our fate, one way or another, has been decided with a few games to go, then we might see something similar to Tom James and Rhys Healey being given game time by Ole against Chelsea in our final match in 13/14.

    The home winnable games are just too critical. I'd rather throw someone in against one of the big 6 away

    Another goal for Mendez-Laing today in a 1-1 draw with Bristol City. Him and Jazz Richards got an hour in, Damour played the whole game. Cameron Coxe got a straight red late on.
