Sorry, what's that you see in the distance? A winger, you say?

Monday, 8 February 2010

Business first, and the latest result that we haven't seen to make spurious analysis over. Yes, a 1-1 draw with Southampton is pretty respectable and is a point that most of us will happily take.

Danny Seaborne didn't score the winner, Bertie Cozic found a sixpence to turn on, and we gained a point against a side that would have really fancied their chances against us. What's more, we didn't just place nice football and lose. Corners have been turned.

That said, Millwall next up will be a very tough ask to get anything from. Let's mark it down as one of those games where any kind of result is a bonus.

No, what's more interesting is the run of fixtures after that until April 3rd, when we entertain Colchester. They are all winnable, and they're all against teams battling against relegation. There's a good chance that come April we could have racked some serious points on the board. Or we could still be struggling. But it's certainly a huge opportunity to make this season safe.

And we may do it with a couple of Forest youngsters. Joe Heath and James Reid were released by Forest earlier this week and they've been training with the club. It may come to naught, but the fact that one's a left back and the other's a winger (yes, a winger. Remember them. They used to look a bit like Wayne Carlisle and Lee Elam) is cause for optimism. Those are two areas a bit of strengthening wouldn't go amiss.
