Considering the tired legs today at the end of the game if I was RM I would definitely make a couple of changes with some of the more serious opponents coming up soon.

------------------------------- Fisher -----------------------------
----- Latibeaudiere ----- Naughton ----- Cabango ----------
Joseph---------------------- Downes ------------------ Ogbeta
------------ Ntcham ---------------------- Congreve ----------
------------------ Piroe --------------- Obafemi ---------------

Ideally I would have wanted to give either Piroe or Obafemi a breather but with playoffs still a possibility and having dropped two points today we can only go for it. If we end up a couple of goals up then we can pull one off and stop them getting a hat trick as usual. With three games in a week all against playoff/promotion contenders next week our big hitters could all do with a rest in my opinion.

It does however show how light we are in the attacking sense and where our recruitment priorities need to lie in the summer.

Reading scoring a winner in injury time will mean they’ll be coming into Mondays game with some optimism

After today's results, if ever a game had draw written all over it.

You know we're going to win, they'll tease us with a last gasp play off hope, clinging onto it until the fat lady finally starts to sing

Not much going on in the way of squad rotation.

Just the one change? Surprising considering how tired some of our players looked against Barnsley.

Nathanael Ogbeta drops from bench duty, could this turn out to be another monumental fùckup of a transfer...
