I have a bad feeling about this game, Bristol City are fighting to stay in the league and at their ground they got a decent record. Would look at the Maynard situation two ways. He could be well up for the game and cause them havoc or be intimidated by the situation and be ineffective. Plus we should probably keep the same side as Saturday. However I don't think Demel will be able to start another game so quickly and perhaps not O'Neill either. This is what I would go with.
Demel (if fit) Tomkins Reid Taylor
O'Neill Noble Lansbury
Maynard Vaz Te
Subs: Henderson, Collins, Collison, Cole, Baldock
Want to see:
Doncaster, Watford, Nott Forest, M'boro, Portsmouth, Blackpool, Cardiff, P'boro, Barnsley.
9 away wins starting with 1 main striker.
I don't know as I agree with that. At least they have an incentive to get after us. It seems to me it's the teams that feel they can afford to park the bus and then pick us off on the break, who've had the most success against us this season. That's why our away record is so good, we're essentially counter punchers who like the opponent to come at us. That's why teams like Brum and Palace gave us a hard time, and why Brighton today were sheep to the slaughter.
Provided no injuries or suspensions I would like more than anything to see the same starting XI as Saturday take the pitch. No tinkering, no worrying about Bristol City, simply send them out with the confidence of a 6-0 behind them and carry it on.
Barring injuries or tired legs I can't see any reason to change a team that has just won 6-0. Expecting this to be a tough game as Bristol City need 1 win to be safe. We need to start well and get them on the back foot early.
Their mob had a go at families/scarfers on Green St earlier this season, then kicked in a window at the Queens and claimed a result
If you are going by bus, get a number 8 or 9 to the centre. There are a number of bars on Corn St, then a 24 or 25 to right outside the ground. The 24/25 stop is near the Raddison Blu Hotel.
Getting back will be more difficult depending what time we are let out. Taxi Cab office in Hotwell Rd might be best bet.
There is a lot of chatter this end about it kicking off, so please be careful. Millwall got jumped outside the Nova Scotia pub.
Seems Maynard isn't going to get a nice welcome home.

I stopped reading after "Made I laugh"
Interesting that they label him lazy yet, despite leaving in Jan, he's still their top scorer! Says a lot about the rest of their strikers.
They fancy it over in Bristol as well! small town mentality I think its the mixture of too much Welsh in their blood
One of those photos on the bench he is sitting next to Da Costa.
