Grant suspended?
Taylor questionable because of Saturday-Tuesday at the start off a new month?
Marriott hauled off against Bradford to save his energy once that game was gone?

Can't believe I'm saying this but this is crying out for a diamond v MK.

We still don't know what our much-touted back-up formation is? Guess it's either the diamond or a good old-fashioned 4-4-2. We know there'll always be two up front under DMac.

Let's go with...

O'Malley; Hughes Shephard Taff Baldwin; Forrester Doughty Gwion Maddison; Marriott Miller.

Subs: Bond Penney LDSL Morias Jermaine Kanu

Guess Bond will start though. O'Malley just a personal preference. Can't really drop him after one poor game.

This game is now HUGE.
Ooh, so close...

Captain Jack Sparrow on the bench, Taylor starts. Good old 4-4-2.

GM says 'We don't do full backs, we do wing backs' So there you go....opposition can fill their boots.
He didn't say that at all.

Zzzzz first half. Did enough in the first ten mins of the second to see off a poor MK side.

Don't have the same concerns about us being able to see out games as for the past couple of seasons any more.

Good to see Forrester back in a bit of form.

iFollow doesn't do the fans any favours with poor televising.
But it's better than just the Radio Cambs commentary - especially Sam Edwards.
Combining the two is not easy but sort of works. Forever pausing and fast forwarding 10 seconds.
But it was good to be able to watch us win.
Maddison was my man of the match.
Miller didn't impress particularly.
MK Dons are pretty ordinary and will not threaten the play offs going by that performance.
I doubt whether we'll see too many teams better than Bradford City.
There has to be a really good chance that we'll stay in the top six.

Having watched Saturday I decided to listen, it gives me the opportunity to do other things whilst listening, I also have flash scores set to the matches I've bet on who give a bit of cheering when a goal is scored, so with Posh in one tab, scores in another I caught up on reading about music and new album releases. Looking forward to seeing the team playing live on Saturday, surely the starting line up will remain the same, unless Grant is available. Back up to second, surely Shrewsbury's bubble has to burst soon.

Grant will be available.
MK Dons Match preview
Posh will be without the services of midfielder Anthony Grant who will be serving a one-match ban following his red card on Saturday. Grant will revert back to three bookings for the season.

It was impressively comfortable wasn't it. Madison was again excellent and surely even his detractors must acknowledge the huge improvement in both attitude.and form this season.
Shepherd despite a poorish pre-season had a cracking game, as to be fair did Forrester. I also thought after a quiet first half with few chances created Miller and Marriott looked a decent pairing in the making and their off the ball running gave MM a lot of space which he then revelled in.
Hard to know quite what to make of MK though or what the merits of what was a really straightforward three points, but we can't keep knocking the opposition every time we beat them i'm just happy that we are!

The combined wisdom of Sam and Edwin decided that this line up was again a 3-4-1-2. So ridiculous it hurts.

Both Shephard and Hughes being used as wing-backs, despite neither having played the role before? And sespite LDSL being on the bench and Gwion playing? Give me strength!

DMac must have been delighted with that performance and formation. It is a well known fact that he prefers a flat back 4-4-2 and Hughes and debut boy Shephard in particular were superb and cements Grant's comments that this squad really are all in this together. Despite it being his debut, Shephard is still only 22 and he has played 60 games for Yeovil and is a Welsh U21 player. You could hardly call him wet behind the ears. He could prove to be an inspired signing.
A horrible night for football (well watching it and for getting back home at least) but the team really did bring a smile to the majority of the crowd. Highlight for me was Leo's run and the precision of Marcus Maddison's strike for his goal. He has that ability to spot gaps that others fail to see. Forester came back to fill in that central spot and looked far more willing to attack than previously and seems to have put loads more bite into his previously failing game.
p.s. Referee must be given a five star rating. I thought he handled the game superbly. Finally, what a pathetic turnout by the MK fans!
