Is it me or do we potentially have zero centre midfielders for the next two weeks?

Don't worry, Mickey will have a plan which is bound to involve sticking Jay Mc in centre mid!

Jennings is only suspended for one game. We don't know how bad Norburn's injury is.

What position does green play?

How close are Kirby and Dunn to a return?

We will go either 4 3 3 or more likely 5 3 2 for Gateshead, Lots of options Buxton into FB, Cole into no 10 Norwood left wing, Kirby into CM, Green into midfield Buxton and LB Sutton RB Rides LW

Of 13 midfield players we have 5 either injured or coming back from injury but not played this season, 2 suspended, 2 out on loan, which leaves us with Dylan MH, Norburn, Cole and Green. Think Saturday's team picks itself:

Scotty, though after last night I'd be giving Pilling a go.
Buxton
McEverly, though after last night I'd be giving Rover the dog a go
Macca
Sutton
Rides
DMH
Norburn
Cole
Nors
Cook

5-3-2 but I'm not sure we can fill the bench

Could be an emergency loan coming in?

Norburn has a quad injury and is doubtful for Saturday.

Kirby was on the bench 2 weeks ago, so must be close?

Sod it, just wheel Wallace to the centre circle and he can ping it around from there

If Norburn is out, then we have zero central midfielders available.

Not at all convinced by suggestions of playing wide players in centre role.

Ideally need centre mid in on loan

Well we've seen plenty of sides over the recent years play with no striker, and successfully.
Can anyone remember a tactic that involves playing without a central midfielder

Gary Jones and the Dutch guy whose name escapes me. Ray Mathias managed to get 81 points and just miss the play offs

Konte/Kante was originally a winger and pushed central by Leicester to amazing effect
imagine DMH in there marauding à la Eddie Bishop
with errrr .............. behind him :-)
well if Harris can play RB then why can't Buxton or Sutton play DMC?
so:
442

Davies
Sutton Steeeeve Gumbs Clarke
Kirby Buxton DMH Rides
Nors Cook

Bench:
Pilling
Drysdale
Green
McDonut
Cole

There is a possibility if he doesn't even get a loan player in, he might have to do something like 4-4-2 and use perhaps Larnell Cole and Ritchie Sutton in midfield, then dump Ridehalgh in the centre with McNulty and play Buxton on the left.

Unless that is he experiments with Devarn Green in the middle, but it could be very risky, so he might be forced to use someone like Mottley-Henry in a central position.

Either that or one of the youth players brought in as cover in the middle.

I think I'd go for:

Norwood /Cook
DMH / Cole /Greene
McEverly
Rides/McNulty/Sutton/Buxton

If you've got the option of McDon, Kirby and Gumbs on the bench then you can always change the shape a bit if needed.

McEverly's forward play is a lot better than his defensive work, I think he would be ideal for breaking up play in front of a back 4.

Tranmere have extended the Banks loan, with the same interest rates as agreed and no requirement for Tranmere to put part of the money in an Icelandic monetary fund.

Sorry couldn't resist (Sm7)
