Before we look at the game, could you give us a memory from previous games against the Gas?

Remember it was March 2011 and a 1-0 win for the U’s. Odejayi got the goal but if memory serves me correctly it was a punt from the rovers goalkeeper which came off his back.

How has your season been going so far?

Not great. Before the season we were fairly hopeful of at least a good mid table finish. However, the season has been a rocky affair so far despite a win on Saturday against Harrogate.

And what would you say your ambitions are for the rest of the campaign?

To be honest I would take a mid table finish at this point.

How is your form coming into the game?

A late 1-0 win on Saturday against Harrogate, debatably underserved.

Before that 2 defeats on the bounce as a draw and to be honest no football quality that gave us hope throughout that period.

How do you think you’ll setup for our game?

4-2-3-1, George, Daniels, Eastman, Chambers, Tchamadeu, Skuse, Wiredu, Judge, Jasper, Sears and Nouble.

Any weak links in your side?

Defensively we have been leaky all season but we are struggling for goals with the lack of an out and out striker.

Who are your standout players?

Shamal George in goal has so far been the saviour of this team.

Game prediction

1-1 both sides in need of a win both sides leaking goals and both sides scoring not very many.

Where do you think you’ll be come the end of the season?

16th
