Free to enter friendly tomorrow night. Interesting to see this has been set up - thoughts on the objectives behind this?

Will be so that the guys coming back from injury can get some minutes - we did a few of these last season (Farnham, Chichester, Horsham, Colliers Wood, Eastbourne).

I assume the likes of Rutherford, McShane, Moore, Fuller, Craig, Kennedy, etc will play decent minutes. Hopefully Bowerman and Bobby-Joe will be back for some minutes as well.

Makes for a good BOA episode, as they are now following Raynes Park Vale too 😀 

... but more seriously, a good chance to get some minutes into the players who have returned from injury recently and get the Gateshead game out of the system ahead of a home game v Boreham Wood at the weekend .. 3 points needed on Saturday to steady the ship too

If Connor comes to watch then we might have a full Gallagher family reunion!

Recent post on Twitter suggests a new signing playing tonight!

Could just mean Carter is playing but Marc said on Saturday that he was still 3-4 weeks away so not sure...

@calvertskans interesting,  I feel we could do with another experience but not to old defender

Thoughts on Pybus.

I haven't seen him live yet but watching on the stream he seems to have little pace and gets booked a lot. Is he sitting as a holding midfielder?

@happy-hammers Yeah agreed, I think we need a defender (ideally left footed) at the peak of his career. Recently we either seem to sign older experienced defenders (Craig, Francomb, etc) or young defenders (Cook, Procter, Quick) so I think we could do with one at the top of their game.

@happy-hammers I like him a lot but I think he needs Gallagher along side him as I don't think he can play the defensive role by himself, especially in away games. Reminds me a bit of Oldaker as he drops deep and sprays the ball around a bit although probably doesn't have the passing range that DJ has.

You can also tell he's much fitter than a lot of our players (other than maybe Josh Taylor) and is very consistent in his performances generally. I would say he was one of the few players in the midfield/defence I wouldn't have given a 1/10 rating to on Saturday.

Going to be a heck of a turnover of players when everyone is fit
