I'd say Wright is more box-to-box than holding; but he certainly does more defensive work than Kelly.

Wedgebury and Carrington was two holding midfielders and it was painful. We looked far more effective when Wright replaced Carrington, and I remain hopeful that Keates' will revert to this pairing. We all saw that this was our best midfield partnership.

Agreed. Our form and performances with 2 holding midfielders was dire. Seems to have been forgotten.

We have options now in the centre but I still feel that DK needs to bring in a player in his own image

Think it might be a case of who do you leave out of the match day squad ?

Especially now Deverdics has arrived - however other than Wedgbury nothing else in midfield shone - it was a poor performance on Saturday and a game we could have lost.

If Wright is recalled then DK will need to drop someone and not necessarily to the bench - only 4 outfield players to place on the bench and with the recent signings we wont be able to accommodate everybody.

Yeah, box to box but more on the holding side of some of the other attackers, and perhaps less likely to impact the game going forward then a Franks or a Mackreth (Although I could probably impact more then him at the moment).

True, but that was with Rutherford and Kelly out wide and Carra in the middle, plus an unfit and very poor Boden or Reid/Massanka. We could get away with a less attacking middle two (if you class Wedge + Wright as this) if the other four are made up from Deverdicks, Franks, Boden, Holroyd or Quigley.

It's nice to have options.

Its hardly a problem really though is it. Mackreth hasn't done anything to justify a place even on the bench, Rutherford is out this week anyway.

At this stage of the season we simply have to be playing our best players and look to be as strong as possibly from the off. If this means dropping some then TOUGH.

Yes the likes of Mackreth need dropping to the reserve side where Wright can get his matchfitness back 😂 oops we dont have one.

Both Quigley and Wright need game time to regain match fitness. Not having a reserve team hampers our ability to do this and keep the fringe-players on the ball.

Needs to be reviewed ASAP.

I know we had a disappointing result last Saturday but would have thought we'd get near 400 Reds for this one, especially as it's against one of our close rivals. The first of three away fixtures for me (+ Woking and Eastleigh) before the end of March. Must admit that my track record at these grounds is mixed:

Sutton - 5-0 win in Trophy (when they were in Conference South) and 1-0 defeat last season
Woking - a couple of draws and a couple of defeats.
Eastleigh - three 1-1 draws.

Need at least a draw on Saturday and at Eastleigh and a win at Woking (where I don't think we have ever won!)

Sorry but we need to start beating close contenders away from home it's a 6 pointer & before you say it yes we beat Tranmere but they were struggling near the bottom then, we lost at Macc Aldershot Fylde Dover, if we lose and Sutton win their games in hand we're well out of winning the league and will struggle for the play-offs, no we need too be bold away and go for the win it's draws that are costing us.

I was thinking more so in relation to the midfield - agree now Rutherford is suspended for the next match the decision will be easier but positionally a midfielder needs to drop out to accommodate the inclusion of Wright.

To me playing Wedgbury together with Wright resulted in us sitting very deep - Deverdics did OK at Guiseley but was very poor v Halifax and Kelly blows hot and cold and doesn't impose himself on the midfield. Not sure if DK has worked out how the midfield will work best - it's an area of our team that is a mystery in itself.

I feel the inclusion of Mackreth as an ongoing bench warmer is to hopefully introduce some game changing pace for the last 20 minutes - good in theory but he doesn't have the ability and is extremely poor - to change the outcome of a game in the closing stages it's the final third that needs changing - this is why I think DK has left Wright out recently.
