As far as the team goes it's fairly settled, I guess Ince and Butterfield would be the two pushing for a recall.

Is play Butterfield and Ince from the start in place of Hendrick and Russell myself. Think it's time Johhny say one out he's looked tired and not at his best the last couple of games.

Looks like we are different from a post forest hangover in here. Need a win today to perk everyone up I think.

Patient performance, waited for the chance to come and never looked like conceding 5 clean sheets in the last 6 home games. Clement showing he has the tactical nous, and can convey it to the players how to beat these team who come and park the bus.

Second half George Thorne went more further forward and really took the game by the scruff of the neck and won it for us.

Another great attendance 29500 odd and Cardiff didn't bring too many.
Wonder how close to 30 we can average over the season. We will be sure to have the highest average, saw a table on the away attendances too where we are clear second to Leeds.

Fingers crossed Thorne can see out the whole season. He will prove to be the best player in the division I think. Whereas he's being slightly overlooked at the moment outside of Derby.
