A strong side, indeed. It seems we can lose almost any two or three players without noticing a difference. That's real strength in depth. Losing Danny is a shame, but in Kieron we have a 90-minute player with a fantastic shot - ideal for the second phase of a free-kick on the edge of the opponents' area.

BTW, where is Sid? Presumably he just can't break into the matchday squad. He's the only fit senior payer missing, apart from Mark Ellis.

Lloyd is just unwell apparently. I am a big fan of Kieron Morris, but Lloyd brings great energy to the side and is in form. Hopefully his absence won't make too much difference.

Agree we may miss Lloyd's absence for the reason RLC states above. O'Connor may be a bit rusty playing at right-back too, though Khan's likely absence more expected.

Nelson's style of play may also not fit in with KH masterplan, which is a shame as he is a whole-hearted player who'll put his body on the line for the team.

Good to see O'Connor back in the team after some good displays in the pizza cup. I hope Morris has a good game in Lloyds absence. Strong lineup and bench. If Feeney and Woolery are on form, we could see some goals!

Oldham seem to have made a few changes and their fans not that convinced about that. Think Tasdemir scored against us in the New Year's Day massacre at Fylde

Their front 3 of tasdemir, McAleny and someone beginning with a B are a real handful with pace and trickery. Could be difficult for our big centre halves.

Re Morris we have CBT if it’s not working

Awful goal to concede. Shocking defending

Not sure of the system. Thought it would be 3 up front with Woolery on the right and Morris on the left but Morris deeper and Woolery on the left. Feeney a bit deep too albeit early days

Terrible. Started his run from the half way line. Need to wake up.

Looks like Feeney on the right of the front three. Understandable although Woolery was amazing there on Tuesday

This has been poor from Rovers so far.

Too intricate in the middle. Get it wide and get crosses in the box. Feeney dropping deep and central but they’ve got the confidence from the early goal

Oldham pressing and not giving us any time on the ball, we are struggling to run at them with no space.

FFS Vaughan’s penalty saved. Even before that I was thinking it could be one of those days.

Unlucky. We are trying now but it's just not happening for us.
