Makes you realise how thin the squad is when 3(?) injuries mean we can only name 5 on the bench.

Would imagine today will be tough... Midfield looks very light

Is this one supposed to be on the player or is it some rights issue? Swear previous rounds were. No player showing yet, though am watching Rob Sinclair star for Oxford City holding Notts to a draw.

on paper-not the strongest team ever put out to represent FGR,but there again-games are not won on paper-and a few players there with points to prove so live in hope albeit not in much expectation !

will this be the day that Luke James proves why Mr Cooper signed him-hope so ,but not holding my breath.

Plenty of defenders and strikers but midfielders are thin on the ground.Will be interesting to see what the formation will be.Be nice to win but woukd ratber rest players with a knock than risk them today.

Sounds like Reece Brown in crocked or sick. Free kick in a good area!

absolute embarrassment that the radio is not working again. whoever is in charge of the service should be fired. every flipping week this happens. no question we should all get our money back.

Doidge and Laird have had a couple of good shots and Wish is troubling them down the left but no clear chances for either team yet.

That sounded hairy. Collins does seem to have the odd howler in him.

Just noticed on the main site match page the little info box on the right reckons this is a game in the Blue Square Premier. There's a blast from the past!

Sound like we're going well though have given them a sniff more than once.

Good performance so far.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
