But not Oswell, it just doesn't make any sense. Even if you don't particularly rate or like him he's still a far better option than playing Grant there.

Keates is a fraud of a manager and he needs to go.
He's made us worse overall and we've stopped scoring.
The theory that he'd sure up the defence has died a death.
He's resorting to playing players out of position in a key role in the team, i.e. striker position.
He's as good as thrown our best striker under the bus instead of doing what a good manager would do and get him onside. Do what it takes.
He's kept Pep Darlington on and I'd love to hear any rationale for keeping the biggest fraud in football at this club after years of utter failure and mismanagement of players.

Oswell been out with a stomach issue, hence not been involved recently according to the Daily Post.

Well, if he isn't injured he needs to be starting. The only remaining 'true' striker we have, who might just be able to hold the ball up, or get on the end of crosses into the box, and he is nowhere to be seen.

If he is injured, fair enough but I had not heard he was.

Given that we are struggling to fill the centre forward position should we give a thought to playing one of the three centrebacks we have in this position. Bobby Grant does not have any impact and does not even make it difficult for the opposition centrebacks they just stroll around and take him out of the game.In fairness to the player we all know he is being played out of position. I am convinced that the likes of Pearson could cause the opposition a few problems and would be a handful to mark and would be able to hold up play, at least it would give us a fighting chance given the current situation. The back four could then be Carrington Kennedy Lawlor Jennings. Any thoughts?

What makes you think Pearson can ‘hold up play’? I’m intrigued

Pearson would be awkward for any centre half to play against and would be a handful to mark. He has good aerial ability therefore the balls we are pumping high into the box for Bobby Grant would at least be challenged for and a high percentage won. Look I am not saying this is the answer Kennedy or Lawlor may be a better bet as a makeshift centre forward . It's just all to easy at present we offer nothing thro the middle up front . Only a short term fix.
