    One major issue I see tomorrow is who takes our set pieces. Time for someone to stand up and make them count tomorrow. I see it being a tight game so a freebie from a corner would be fantastic.

    I know he’s tall but I would like to see Ekwah taking some of them. Expect Clarke/Neil on the other side.

    Clarke seems to be decent at them, good pace and accuracy. Doesn't hit the first defender every corner.

    We could do with a specialist though.

    Pritchard was decent on free kicks but bloody hell the number of times he hit the first defender from a corner was incredible.

    i stopped watching us away in 1991 after a 6-0 league cup defeat and they will not get me back unless big money is spent. No striker means trouble.

    Is Jones out for them? My director at work thinks he's out for a few weeks with a hamstring injury.

    I'd fancy Clarke up against Ayling.

    Clarke got a bad press for his performance last season down there, he had an off day, but the thing I remember was he kept trying, it wasnt working but he kept trying, get some people in the box and we win 2-0 today

    I was edging to a late own goal for the winner but now opting for an Ekwah screamer to bring the points home.

    Nervously excited for the match today, not expectant as we’ve not got much at all from Middlesbrough but today could be our day !
