FGR (A) Match Preview

What do you need when you haven’t won in ages? A trip to a ground where you haven’t won in ages of course. United go to Forest Green seeking a first win at the New Lawn in the League era.

United are pretty threadbare at the moment, but Zeno Rossi could be back to bolster the defensive options, other than that the team pretty much picks itself from who’s available. Bonner seems to be defending Sam Smith in his running battle with the fanbase, so he’ll be sure to feature at some point, the only question mark again hangs over Saikou Janneh and whether we’ll see him this week?

Expected U’s Line-Up: Mannion, Williams, Jones, Okedina, Dunk, Digby, Simper, Brophy, Knibbs, Lankester, Ironside

Who’s In The Dugout? Highly rated protege of Graham Potter, Ian Burchnall is finding life tough down in Gloucestershire, although he previously did well with Notts County.

Whos’ Their Player To Watch: Striker Connor Wickham has loads of Premier League and Championship experience and could hurt the U’s, as could Jamille Matt

What’s Their Recent Form Like? Joint-bottom of the League, having lost three and drawn two of the last five

Any Ex-United Players? Nope

Last Time Out: United 1-0 Forest Green, 20 March 2021

God, we miss Wes.

From The Archive: United 2-0 Forest Green, 23 February 2008

God, we miss Wayne Hatswell too, come to think of it
