With Caprice joining the hamstring club we could do with Parkes and Key returning, at least one of them anyway.

Big thing though is we're inadequate up front (ooh err missus) and Taylor needs to stiffen things up. Expect a rare start for Ajose.

Key not trained since his unfortunate incident with the Bradford backpost. Parkes also not seen since his knee injury either, so unlikely they will feature on Tuesday. Got to think Capricecwill be ruled out too, given his injury. Perhaps a return to 3 at the back with an opportunity for Alex Hartridge on the left of the 3?

I think if Hartridge is passed over in favour of Sweeny on the defensive left again we might as well send him off to Truro City now.

Why not just go to a back three, which we played successfully last season, with Sweeney, McArdle and Hartridge at the back with Williams and Sparkes playing the wing back positions.

I don't think there's any other option on Tuesday if Tommy Parkes doesn't make it.

Randall might have to give way if we play 3-5-2. Although this will allow Law to return.

Sweeney McArdle Hartridge
Williams Taylor Collins Law Sparkes
