David Davis and Isaac Vassell have returned from injury at just the right time.
Whether it is to aid the prospect of a top six finish or a relegation survival is still unsure. No thanks to the EFL, everybody connected to BCFC and its fantastic supporters cannot relax one way or
What we do know is that our last game against Bolton was a one-off – our recent form did not deserve that. Blackburn now up and victory is needed in order to keep the expectation and hope bubbling. Defeat would be a huge setback.
Many fans back the Vassell/Adams start which appears logical in terms of mobility, whereas the Juke does represent a fiercesome figure against bullying centre backs. Then there is the David Davis factor and where to play him. Digger is a bold player in a similar mould to Keiftenbeld who face the elements head-on, but foot on the ball, creating clever passes they do not.
Question is how do we, or I should say Garry Monk, approach the last fourteen games of the season.
Regardless of what situation we find ourselves after the EFL decision, my feeling is that we keep to a safety first approach with Davis and Keiftenbeld in there for matches we simply cannot compete in terms of midfield creativity. Also games such as Villa and WBA where pride is at stake.
Vassell, Davis, Gardners and Keiftenbeld are not bad for this tough division when it comes down to competing and the more we see each season – competitiveness gets stronger. Weaknesses are soon found out.
Can Davis and Vassell really make that difference now they are back helping and shoot us forward starting next Saturday? For me, they are our January window signings and I’m quite excited about it too.
