Well, one thing we know almost for sure is that there won't be a change in formation, and I for one won't be so belligerent about the wishes to do so being that the back 3 have rounded into form since TOC's move to the LCB, EOC taking the middle and then Tozer coming back to form after replacing him, and Hayden getting fit or Evans getting used back there. Forde and Evans certainly help shore up the defense as well at WB and CDM helping to compensate for whatever choice has to get made due to Mendy and McLean's absence.

I am with pretty much everyone else that it is most likely going to be McAlinden getting plugged in, but it's not like Parky can't surprise us like a few weeks ago at Notts when Tozer got the start and Evans moved to RCB after Tunni got a pre-game injury. Parky said that they extended McAlinden for pretty much this exact reason, but is there a lineup that can put a better player on the field who could handle the LWB at least as well as McA? Young certainly has the motor. Would his playing style translate somewhat while staying near the sideline? Could JJ handle the LWB and Young start at the 8? Does Davies have enough stamina to cover the LWB? I mean, McAlinden probably is a bit more comfortable on the defensive end than Davies, but Davies is an obviously more offensive threat.

My guess is that it will be McAlinden being that Parky won't feel the need to make a gamble being that Accrington played a tough match on Tuesday and sounds like they may have even suffered a couple injuries. He'll probably just elect to not play anyone else out of position and plug in McAlinden being that he doesn't actually have a position haha and is left footed.

No matter what happens, its still fun to think about and however the lineup goes, I'm still going with my coming in hot prediction that Wrexham come away with a clean sheet and put 4 in the net with Mullin returning nice and fresh looking to make up for a missed game last week and Accrington having been on the losing end of a tough extra time match earlier in the week. Wrexham has been playing extremely well for a while and I just think that this may be the week the dam breaks on the scoring. Hey, maybe McAlinden puts one in

I imagine it will be McAlinden or James Jones.

Its amazing that we have 4 of the best wingers in all of league 2 and only 1 is available these last 2 games.
