00:07.39

Danny

Hello everyone and welcome back. That's right to the its all cobblers to me preview show is back. We've got a chat with a representative from Saturday's opponent opponent Salford City coming up. But first I'm joined. By my Wednesday night friend Charles Commins how are you charles? Well yeah, and Sunday I guess um, good. Good. Um, it is Wednesday will timestamp it because we mid transfer window. Um, we had a little bit of bad news.

00:29.22

charlescommins

Byodi your friend of a Wednesday night is that how that works. Okay, thanks up'm good. Thank you very much.

00:43.79

Danny

Little bit of slightly good news that today that was Wednesday in the buildup to this chanka zimba out for six weeks with a hamstring injury which is helpful. Ah usual, Cobbler's way you'd say bringing a lone player and is out straight away for six weeks um and that comes a few days before the end of the transfer window. So. John Brady did say that he'd missed out on a couple of transfer targets but we did bringing Idris Kanu from some other team down the road charles today. How feelings on that.

01:13.90

charlescommins

And on. Well first of all I'm disappointed. It wasn't idris el but ah second of all, um I literally laughed when I couldn't help it when it was announced that zimbber is injured with a hamstring injury. No less I immediately went. Oh.

01:16.93

Danny

Yeah.

01:29.10

Danny

Yes.

01:33.70

charlescommins

So we replaced key on a tete who had a hamstring injury and hadn't played for six weeks with a player that has come in played all of what maybe about 80 minutes max with a hamstring injury for six weeks brilliant

01:42.43

Danny

Yeah, yeah, good times with it with about 2 or 3 days left to the transfer window. So it's gonna be a scramble we were talking earlier won't we about whether we do a Twitter spaces or not a Monday night. It looks like it is gonna be a late one.

01:50.78

charlescommins

Brilliant Yeah, it's.

02:01.43

charlescommins

It's go after to me isn't it. What.

02:01.74

Danny

Ah, little scramble around the basement bucket of to to grab whatever's left strike was because Carnu Kindley doesn't sound like he's yeah game in there. Yeah, speaking of getting him in by the way I'm gonna I was browsing the hotel end. So I'm not a member of the hotel in I like to browse sometimes someone used.

02:05.86

charlescommins

So just having dress does Ml sinclair still play. Yeah.

02:16.12

charlescommins

Be careful.

02:20.99

Danny

Get him in I don't know if I can't remember exactly who it was someone used get him in jars they're goingnna need a trade market.

02:25.29

charlescommins

Hang on that is this what I used.

02:30.36

Danny

Um, there's that was hit sneak peek. Yeah um, but yeah anyway back to cut carnu um, not an out-and out strike we don't think but looks of it. It looks like he can play all over the pitch which would have excited Keith Carl I think bike wing back? Yeah in there. Um.

02:32.46

charlescommins

Sneak Fake State Ba rat.

02:43.43

charlescommins

Right? Wing back.

02:49.33

Danny

Doesn't look like he's the one to solve the striking issue is.

02:51.87

charlescommins

He looks to me like he's more of the creative player I think so he's the one that hopefully is going to be unlocking the defense. Yeah, it's.

02:54.92

Danny

Um, yeah.

03:02.16

Danny

Unlock it yeah it was it's been playing right? wing back I think for that that blue team. Um, it's though it does seem like John Brady is still in the hunt for a striker though which is it which is good. It's not.

03:06.34

charlescommins

You could write it a G You really could write that script I Love it.

03:19.96

charlescommins

Ah I will be very interested to see whether all these rumors and I appreciate they are just rumors and we haven't got a clue who starts this kind of stuff or anything like that. But Danny Hilton has been rumoured since literally December thirty first hasn't he with ah a move up the m one from luton.

03:20.10

Danny

Pinning his hopes on Kano to be that man. Yes.

03:34.30

Danny

Yeah.

03:39.38

charlescommins

To us. So I'd be very interested to see whether that actually comes to fruition or indeed if we can maybe find out somehow once the window closes as to whether it was ever likely or looking like it. We were interested in in that at all.

03:53.89

Danny

Um, just.

03:56.37

charlescommins

Because as much as we sort of moaned didnt well Neil had a nice big pop on the pod on Tuesday didn't hear about loaning youth players from like premier league clubs of championship clubs Danny Hilton was I think the rumor was for a loan until the end of the season he is not I was gonna say a child.

04:03.64

Danny

Um, yeah. Yeah. Ah, it's not a child.. It's definitely a child.. He's not.

04:16.26

charlescommins

He is not a used to player coming from ah a high division club. He's an experienced pro who would be dropping down a couple of divisions not but having not been able to get into a championship side that file accounts are doing okay for what they're wanting and.

04:28.39

Danny

Yeah, yeah, they are. We'll see what happens though it look it I wouldn't mind that so much like ah that kind of experience coming in. Um, when I saw some pictures today with it. We had a. Behind the club behind closed doors friendly against coventry I think on Wednesday rico on the sidelines he looked lucky now it's not it was at sick fields as well. I think um, get rio on there. Sure we could do with you all we need is someone to stick the ball in the neck kind again, you know what? I think you would do it.

04:49.52

charlescommins

At the reco I know it's not called the rico anywhere is it. Oh Robert ruined. As you imagine.

05:06.30

Danny

We asked him if it gets to Monday if get gets to Monday is still relatively fit of anything. Can.

05:07.64

charlescommins

I'm not so sure I'm not so sure he would anymore I'm not I'm not saying that he isn't I just think he's enjoying the fact that he doesn't have to play football anymore. There's definitely an element I'm pretty sure that he was asked in a. You know in a jokey way by either Jake Sharp or Henna's or sort of somebody media wise and he literally just shot them a glare. He loves a glare de rico loves it.

05:32.96

Danny

He does like a glare. He loves a glare he does. But anyway that could all be out of date I guess by the time this comes out on Friday we could have signed um a million pound striker and so let's not moan too much because it could have could have kicked off by friday.

05:49.54

charlescommins

Christian Lee are we back is he cool for a million quid actually will become the first million power cobblers player when we pay a million quids. Ah.

05:51.84

Danny

Ah, yeah, heard it on good authority that Christian Lee is on his way. Um, yes, and he's just not the way we pay for him. Yeah, um, let's get looking ahead. Sat then and we've got the pleasure. Ah today I've been joined by Salford City commentator and media and communications officer will morecroft hey will how you doing? Yeah good. Good. We're just saying before this started this the first preview show back. It's used to be our regular Wednesday meeting where we chat to a fan but also lament.

06:13.44

Will

Yeah, good. Thanks I you.

06:28.65

Danny

Cobblers form and this season is not hopefully gonna go that duration. You never know so go going into your role will ah you a Salford fan as well as being the media and comes off so did it just um, sort of fall into it as as such.

06:43.52

Will

Yeah, so I've been around club for 8 seasons now this being number 8 and I suppose it's hard when you've got such long affiliation with the club say that you're not a fan because you know why that happens on a Saturday Tuesday that has a normal a round meal.

06:47.51

Danny

If.

07:02.52

Will

Tell you in the test too that dictates what you mood is you know if it goes Well, you're happy if it doesn't go Well not so much so you know ah I will class myself as a fan on on that level. Um, yeah I got involved at the club through my university at the time. Um, and it's. Ah, project that back then was really exciting and remains really exciting and now it's a really big part of my life obviously is my fulltime job. So yeah, you know it's Good. It's been great to see the journey so far and obviously as everyone knows the ambitions are to carry on going with it.

07:37.77

Danny

So where were soulford when you first started the role eight years ago would have been non league somewhere. Yeah.

07:45.60

Will

Yeah, the evo stick northern premier league division one north so tier number 8 fairway down.

07:54.37

Danny

Nu's yeah, you're talking about um ambition then and such a ah journey from there obviously with the backing from the class night into famously. Um is that ambition still felt. Do you think from the owners at the moment.

08:08.44

Will

Yeah I mean that when they came in I think they targeted within 15 years to be in the championship and you know the first 7 8 of those well I'll take 7 have been meteoric by 1 promotion season 1 season 2 season 4 and season 5 so you know 4 promotions in 5 years and they were well on target and we go into every lead 2 season. So with that ambition of promotion and 1 of the things that stake to me actually when we sign Nathan Pos he said you don't as a player you don't go into a season thinking right? We're going to go from a table here. You know any team that has got anything about them. Your ambition is to finish as high as you can and you know that that's certainly true here. Obviously we've not realized that yet. But I'd say in 2 seasons. We've come close on both occasions.

09:06.13

Danny

Um, ah guess it's quite lazy of us because we I think a couple of us predicted on our preseason show that salford would be if not title winners definitely up above but above in the top 3 um. With it being your third season in the league should you be challenging more? Do you think than you are.

09:26.83

Will

Yeah I mean it's a difficult one to put the finger on because obviously everyone sees the caliber of players. We pull in that we do bring in and you look at the league position and think well why you down there. But I think there is something about. 1 league two' is a very very difficult league without doubt. It's most difficult league that we've been in you know I've watched regularly premer league and championship football for most of my life and even watching that's say league two is. The absolute most difficult. Um, what you also find is other factors. So I think there might be some pressure on the plays that they know they're coming in and that's what the expectations are and from other teams as well. A lot of people don't expect but I hate to say it in. And I'm not doing it in a big headed way. We are a lot of people's in cherry you know people want to come they want to play well against us you see levels coming up another five ten percent and you know we've been caught out a number of times by not being at one hundred and ten percent um which is what we've got to be at every week um but you know what like said before we're not, we've never been million miles off but we've not quite got it right? Yard'd say.

10:53.33

Danny

Is there any frustration from the fans from that that you're not challenging. Yeah.

10:59.80

Will

There is I think there are certainly some fan who's come in in more recent times expecting to come in and watch winning team I don't think they fully or some of them I don't think fully understand what. League 2 wo's about and that it isn't as simple as go out, get the best players and you're going to walk away with it. There are so many of the things to build a very good league 2 team. Um, but I think a lot of fans that I know who being here for. More than seven or eight years since the class nights 2 took over most of them are certainly very happy with where they are with where the club is right now particularly compared to you know where we have been previously I mean prescott cables away on the Tuesday night isn't the most glamorous of places to go. Um, you know, looking back to our midweek game neithers barrow to be perfectly honest, but you know what watching weekend week out getting to go to groundside you know Valley parade and all these sorts of places that you know they understand where we are. There's still that ambition there. You know. That's never going to change and they're just happy to be enjoying the journey still.

12:17.70

charlescommins

He's um, it's interesting say that because I was interested to know whether there's a divide in in the fan base because obviously there are those fans that have been there since the days when you know it was just you know. And open field essentially with a cafe and and and you know a very small stand with a few seats to what it is now at the you know the new stadium. Um, and then you've got these newer fans coming in that are obviously coming in because of the fact that you know we. You can't deny it the class night to Gary Neville being the the figurehead for the for the club now they're going to come in. They're going to go and watch that I presume you get a lot of united fans that go and watch on the days when united aren't playing if united are playing on Sunday they'll go to soford on Saturday so you. Is there a noticeable dividing in that sort of fanbase. Do. Do you maybe sort of see the the old guard if you like just sort of being there and being a bit more like relaxed about everything a bit happier without everything's going whereas and maybe tutting a little bit of the newer crowd that ah.

13:18.16

Will

I Mean that.

13:30.23

charlescommins

More impatient and.

13:30.44

Will

Yeah, it's hard to disagree with that I mean there are you know some who don't like some of the newer fans that have come in and have this expectation like saying before you know from what they've been through with the club in the northwest counties even below. Um, and I got involved to where we are now you know they're very proud of where we are and maybe a bit more accepting and understanding of where we are and that we're not just going to go up every every year you know that that is impossible whether it's. Full on divide and I wouldn't say it's completely like one side and the other. But yeah there there is a little bit of difference in opinion as to how we're doing and where we are where we maybe should be.

14:21.78

Danny

Where where is it. You think you should be and the women.

14:28.13

Will

Well, ah I'm one of these quite holistic you are where you deserve to be you know football over the course of season balances itself out. You can start poorly get a good run of form and. And really well and see where you end up higher at the table or you can start off really well get complacent and slip out down. So you know you I don't think anybody can say you should be in a certain place like we're saying before you look at our squad and. Experience. They've got and there the promotions they've got in there then yes, you might expect us to be higher up but it isn't it really isn't so simple. You know, trying to find the way that those players play together. For example, you know that team chemistry is such an important part and. That's the bit that you need to get right? So you know we are where we are I can't say that there's too much this season that I'll look back and think that really really went against us. You know last weekend's against cold Chester probably isn't the best that I've ever seen us play. I think I will put that there in 1 of the worst performances I think I've seen from a Salford side and that's just being goneestt over the last seven or eight years um but then we have had some spectacular wins. Really good performances and bits some some good points. So yeah. We are why we are and we'll see why we finished come may.

16:03.98

charlescommins

y that wreckre some have paid:

17:10.22

Danny

Ali Palmer yeah

17:10.83

Will

Moly palmer.

17:17.93

Danny

E.

17:21.32

charlescommins

ought christianna ronaldo for:

17:28.46

Will

What was funny when we're in the national league north one of the most vocal clubs against what soford were doing stopport county when we're in the national league. It was Rex and you know look what's happened to them the last couple of years and you know it.

17:44.66

Danny

2 a.

17:48.54

Will

It's acceptable. It's okay for them to I'll be splash in the cachelight. They are so it's that's quite a funny irony I find but you know it it is a bit of jealousy and no foot or very few football clubs have ever. Built themselves from absolutely nothing. You know there aren't football clubs that pay a packet of peanuts and you know a part of law grafter again that football in itself is becoming a beast that is losing control of itself very quickly I find but you know we do have. That ability. We do use it and you know it like said before you you have the other side of that coin where it getting it to work. You know it's all very well and good having the best resources but it's you know sometimes. Making the most of them you know I look at Gary Raward for example, a manager who works on a very limited budget does absolute wonders who's given a war chest at stoke and he failed so you know it's it. It really isn't always the answer and.

18:56.57

Danny

A.

19:03.20

Will

You know, Ah, every club would love to have it but you know for those who are run sustainably not saying. We're not by the way we are you know Wellrun sustainable and but you know for those who do are sensible about. About It. You know it. It really isn't a bad thing to have so you know he can be jealous about resources that some have but I think what was seen more and more at the moment if you still have a football club to follow and support and you know they're looking after themselves and the fans. You've got that then you really can't take that for granted either.

19:37.96

Danny

Is the relationship quite strong still like between fans and the board and the owners is it is it like a hundred percent backing between them or is there some dissenting voices.

19:51.73

Will

I've not ever really seen anything that is against the owners from the club um or from the sporters. There's you know dialogue between some groups. Particularly the older ones who have got a lot more deeper invested interests in the club and the committee as well. Particularly ah, not much happens without the committee being aware of it and having their say you know a lot of them have been of club for. Over 30 years so you know they are still with a beating heartbeat of what it's about and the owners are the owners and that um I think there's a little bit of descent towards the recruitment have to say and you know our has the club. Brought the right players in or not and because there've been some brunaland dry For example, you know, never really worked out for him. We had Mark Green for a time that never really worked out and Danny Lloyd as well came from that blue club down the road. Um, you know I never.

20:50.50

Danny

A.

21:04.83

Will

Fully worked out for him so there are some question marks over that. But you know if there was a guaranteed tailored solution then League two won't be as exciting as it is.

21:13.81

Danny

A.

21:14.44

charlescommins

Can I just because you've brought up recruitment one of the nice things that I saw on Twitter I think this week or it might have been last week um newport county unveiled a signing on Twitter using a nice little panini sticker esque video. And then what maybe a same day I think it was a little bit later on sour did a similar thing. It wasn't exactly the same but then it yeah.

21:41.10

Will

And if you wind back a year. You'll see that Soulford also did a football sticker and that we were also due to play bring a player in earlier in the window which we had the same thing for which didn't come off. So yeah.

21:55.40

charlescommins

It was it was the thing that I liked was was afterwards because the banter between the 2 clubs social media accounts. Although it was short and you know fleeting was quite funny and I you know it was that whole thing of I think. Was it your you're applied to say oh sorry we forgot that newport invented the sticker album or something like that I bet you know is the the fun that you can still have despite the fact that you know you're bringing in recruitment that is above. Let's be honest, what mostly 2 clubs can do. But.

22:31.37

Will

Is.

22:33.82

charlescommins

I Think that still shows that they're they're seen and respected or soured or respected the same as any other side in division by the rest of the clubs.

22:41.30

Will

Yeah I mean ah I always hope that when people come to us they see that you know we're not a load of really stock up people who believe we've got an entitlement to be higher up. You know, a lot of us behind the scenes of help to build where we are now. It would have been very easy when the club went professional for them to instead of take myself on and my former colleagues who been there for the last three four years you know go and offer someone who's been there done it at the top flights or the championship to come in and do our jobs. Um, you know they could have gone out and got a really experienced tick office manager you know commercial manager in all these different roles. But instead they've entrusted to that to us and I think we've helped to continue bringing that you know we are normal people. Um, you know there isn't anything special about us. You know there's something exciting and special about where we work yes, but you know that that doesn't change anything about us and you know I do hope that people see that just on the social media thing we. Ah, feel that we do need to be a bit more careful than others at times because a lot of people very quick scrutinize us and you know criticizes I think like said it it was only matter of minutes wasn't it before newport straight on it but it I think that's why i. Sort of cut it a bit short and sweet because we have previously done that um you know we've had that ready since December because we knew that's what we're going to do for any January incomings. So it's just not worth the battle. Really, it was quite funny just to seek you out of stuff that comes out you and you just. All you can do sit there and laugh at times.

24:33.84

Danny

Stuff um, coming to on the pitch now. Um obviously gary bowauer appointed in the summer um if it's been really up and down especially like the last few weeks has seems like a little bit of your season in ah in a nutshell like you've gone to port vale defended for your lives.

24:53.37

Will

Um, if.

24:53.58

Danny

Um, what the highlights I've seen um to get the one. No, that was the the bent post game charles. You'll be have to know? Um, yeah, ah um, ah Nick to goal. Ah, really tell us more to this part fifth.

24:57.50

charlescommins

Oh yes, yes.

25:02.17

Will

It's not the first time we've had a tractor involved in a game either. Yeah, we we actually had a track to stolen a few years ago um yeah so that there just sees me something about sophon tras. But.

25:12.16

Danny

Yeah, oh ah in our pod colleague. Jeffie will be very excited. She loves she loves a tractor so any tractors you bring down. Ah yeah, bring down on Saturday you got to be careful. She'll be she'll be on him. Um.

25:13.16

charlescommins

Chesy.

25:18.47

Will

It.

25:30.60

Danny

But yeah, then you want to add that decimation against colchester which was one of the shock results of the season and performances I was I was looking through the the soford forum earlier and getting their reactions to it and it just like you said it's the worst one of the worst performances they've seen in years. Um was that just out of nowhere just completely.

25:49.39

Will

Yeah, to be honest, um you know even looking at choosing arts game. We were just sharper more re intensee passes were finding the way through um with cold chested like said earlier. They just seemed to have an extra five or ten percent in them.

25:49.73

Danny

Ah, the blue. No.

26:08.75

Will

As you'd expect when they bring a new man. Well bring someone you in charge in and a couple of our plays afterwards were saying same sort of thing you know they've got a new spirit and belief in the camp which that's one of those things it doesn't justify our performance though. You know I think we're expecting to have more time on the ball. We Never really reacted. Reactions didn't get quicker and you know what happened happened and I think they were fully deserving off for 3 points on the day. But yeah, it.

26:39.39

Danny

A.

26:44.67

Will

It's just strange to come by consistency I think throughout our league to stay. We've never really put together that run of you know, 3 4 wins we've had a couple of unbeaten runs but they've never really got anywhere near to double figures. So. That's something that's maybe always been a little bit absent. Obviously we've got Ian Henderson missing long term which hasn't helped in terms of you know someone who is going to put the ball away and obviously without goals. You're going to struggle to win some games. Um December. We were quite unlucky in that we've not actually had to shut down due to covid at all throughout the pandemic and yet in December we lost to think 3 maybe 4 games because the opposition had covid so that was frustrating because after we beat Steve image we felt we could have gone on a run then. But you know there's still just under half the season to go plenty of time.

27:46.45

Danny

Ah, barrow on Tuesday night obviously after that culture has the defeat probably needed needed a game on Tuesday night ah that I'd say um tune your win was it back to how you expect what you expect from him.

27:59.85

Will

Yeah, um, it it still wasn't out of third or fourth gear. You know barrow were lacking certain elements of their game that will be really important for them if they're going to stay up. Um, but sometimes you've just got to take. What comes to you. You know we did most of the basics right? as the cliche would go um, you know good free kick take you 3 points and move on I think it's a credit to um, our club secretary that. We've got these postpone games in such a short space of time because it means that we've not had to you know wait week to week you know we've been able to go Saturday Tuesday and while it might take a bit out of the lats and you look at the back end of December and we didn't play from December the eighteenth to January the eighth. So.

28:41.44

Danny

A.

28:55.57

Will

In a way you had a bit of a break the raring to go and no, we just need that momentum to back us up now.

29:02.78

Danny

Yeah, um, couple of plays you mentioned indie Henderson there longterm injury couple of xcobbles there. How was dear Jordan Turnbull and more importantly, how is his beard. It's my question because his beard is one of the finest around.

29:13.43

Will

His his beard is the envy of many a male person including myself is um but I eat Jordan's brilliant I think I run out of adjectives to describe him. He's solid. He's dependable. He's exciting. He's always a threat. Um, he's honestly one of the best centrebacks that we've ever had of the club so you know we've we've been really fortunate. Um. Yeah, that it. There's just not really much more you can add you guys know this as much as we do you know with the disappointment nothing there was when he did leave and um, decide to come to us. You know that that's why he is what he is.

29:55.74

Danny

And yeah.

30:06.66

Danny

And the other player. So.

Before you move on Daddy I'd just like to say how much I'm now crying because I do miss Jordan Turnbull greatly I do get see it on Saturday ah um, I'm hoping that covid's gone Boris says that it's gone isn't it by Thursday so therefore I'll stroke his beard if I get the chance.

30:14.53

Danny

It just well you get same on Saturday charles. You can you could cry again afterwards that he's not.

30:25.99

Will

Are.

30:28.58

Danny

Ah, ah, not sure that was in his speech. But I'll go back and watch it stroking Beards is back on the agenda goods good stuff. Ah somebody doesn't have a bid Ryan Watson he does have a good head of hair. But ah as he shaved it off nausie thats it.

30:28.63

charlescommins

I.

30:33.27

charlescommins

I'm pretty sure that's exactly what Boris was saying Brokenkin Pis is back in. Ah.

30:43.34

Will

He' shaved it off now. Yay he's he's got. He's gone for a short look look looks a lot more tough. Um, yeah, he's done really? well it is debut um, which was.

30:47.72

Danny

Ah, nice. How's the how's he settling in so far.

30:59.55

Will

Away at Bradford City even though we lost he made me go to school 2 or 3 um, you know he he gave us I think what we've been missing in the middle just a bit more drive going forward and linking up in the back in the front. Um, he's had a couple of chances in every game. All 3 so far and he got an assist as well now on his record so you know he he's one who I'm really looking forward to when he does fully betting and settled. You know he he's from the northwest anyway. So. It's not a big movie should be relatively settled and I think if we do go on to finish well and end up in the playoffs I think he will play one of the most important roles in that.

31:44.27

Danny

E.

31:45.10

charlescommins

You were you said you said that you should have got a couple of goals there. Well I think you're doing him a disservice because it because he did It might have been in the wrong end but he's still scored.

31:54.77

Will

Of E E didn't know anything about that I bet I think that's ah that that's one of those that you don't want to see it put down as known goal. But it's it. It's come off his backy with it when he's looking the other way so you know, unfortunate one for him.

32:10.52

charlescommins

And yet we all know that if he was a striker and it was in the right net then he'd take it all day long. Ah.

32:12.34

Will

But. Oh yeah, definitely.

32:18.23

Danny

Ah, um I want to finish on Matt Smith who we mentioned earlier there was a bit of frustration I think from his first couple of games that the ball was just being lumped up to him. There was a little bit of annoyance that that was being done before it was long ball but it wasn't sticking but. He's at least winning the headers and trying to bring other people into play. What I can see if you've got Watson they're behind him then it might actually be a lot more beneficial to have the 2 of them because he scored so many goals for us that is just powering in at the last minute he could be the perfect man to compliment Smith up front I think.

32:51.78

Will

Yeah, and we've also got Brandon Thomas Susantte suspended at the moment he will be likewise the perfect compliment. You know he's that striker who will put in. You know your fourteen fifteen columns to the game running around getting on to the knockdowns.

32:55.20

Danny

Um, yeah, you.

33:10.80

Will

Um, as when he's back I think we'll see the full effectiveness of Matt Smith as well and obviously water alone. Add to that. But I do as well see where the fans are coming from in terms of the bulls going direct up to Smith. Um, you know t. Teams aren't stupid. They already put 2 or 3 defenders on him and don't give him that space but at the same time. Ah I do believe we need to try and utilize the y players a bit more and get those balls coming in from all different angles and not down through the middle. Josh Morris will hopefully be back relatively soon. He's been cont content with the niggle and ibu tore's currently at afghan with the Gambia. He's got fantastic delivery from the left hand side and from set pieces. So. They'll both be really beneficial and they are back as well. So a lot more to come I think Saturday's the last yeah four because it's the second record of the season. Ah, he.

34:09.80

Danny

Thomas is Thomas Sand he's still suspended the weekend. What was its last one was it was it for was it 4 games? Yeah, okay, oh.

34:26.70

Will

He's bought one himself a little bit. You know he he gave I think both instance since he's given the referee the opportunity to bring it out as opposed to anything being particularly cynical but you know he learning. It's hard to forget. He's only 23 he's got a big career ahead of him.

34:32.96

Danny

Is.

34:43.65

Danny

Yeah, ah Charles we're gonna finish with predictions I think have we got a jingle for predictions but do we need to areas as though surely someone can beat that come on listeners you can.

34:48.94

charlescommins

35:03.28

Will

Yes, I'll be doing Salford commentary and other media duties I've got to be honest, um, not usually want to make predictions. But I'm going to formulate this 1 together 3 previous meetings. Northampton. Always score twice against us. Um Sam Hoskins seems to have a particular ponchant for scoring. So I'm going to go with Sam Hoskins and Paul Lewis as well. Who score twice against us before score for cobblers. But. Just because I've got to I've got to say softly gonna win so 3 2 2 salford and that's despite 2 relatively good defenses and relatively low scores.
