Defender Marcel Seip will miss the rest of City's season with a shoulder injury.

The Dutchman, whose short-term contract is up in the summer, has needed an operation.

Seip has missed the last three games since stirring up an old injury when he landed painfully on his shoulder during the 1-0 defeat at Aldershot.

The news comes as another defensive blow for Phil Parkinson, who is already without suspended centre halves Luke Oliver and Andrew Davies.

Parkinson said: “We’ll miss Marcel’s experience. But that was half the reason I kept Simon Ramsden back in midweek after we’d had the bad news from the scan.”

Bad news after bad news at bradford.
Seems there's nothing going for Parky and the squad going into the final 7 games of the season.
Seems guy branston may have a chance to get involved in this relegation battle.
But branston is an experianced pro and last season was in the lge2 team of the season
I really haven't got a clue what back 4 , Parky will play on sat against Plymouth.

The bookies have us at 6/1 to go down, I'd say that is pretty generous. It's looking more and more likely ; based on the events of the last 48 hours, and looking at our remaining 7 matches, that we will be drawn into a fight for survival.

Possible Right backs are

Mitchell, Kozluk and Ramsden (can Burns be recalled?)

Possible Left Backs are

Fry

Centre Backs

Branston, Ramsden, Bully

Not sure that Ravenhill hasn't played centre back in the past too.

What's the betting that Reid now misses PLymouth thanks to the birth of his child.

Seige mentality required and as much optimism as you can muster.

The main optimism is that either Hereford have to muster at least 6 points more than us in 7 games or Macc have to muster 5 points more than us (based on goal difference being superior). I would still rather be in our position than theirs at this moment in time.

I was always comfortable that we would pick up enough points to stay away from the bottom. Losing three defenders in two days has taken away a lot of that comfort. 0-0 at Plymouth would be tremendous!!

In all seriousness I think Branston returning is a good thing. The best game he played for us this season was against Torquay (his old club) when he had something to prove against his old team mates. After PP effectively decided he is no good and shipped him out on loan, this is the perfect opportunity to prove him wrong. Guy should be fired up for this and I'm expecting a good performance from him.

Uh-oh.... Everythings going wrong at the worst possible time.
.
Before Crawley, we were 38 games into the season, and would probably end like last season - just do enough to keep ahead of the chasing pack and guarantee safety with about 3 games to go.
.
Now we've got a defensive crisis due to letting Threllfall go, the brawl the other night and the aftermath and now Seip getting injured. Also letting Steve Williams have a 28 day recall and not a 24 hour one.
.
We're probably all over-worrying, but our recent March/April collapses in recent years (including getting us relegated) linger in the mind.
.
We seem to be a club of firsts in certain aspects. It wouldn't surprise me if this freakish set of occurrences could genuinely help send us down.
It will certainly give a boost to the teams below us.

Totally agree.
We are 4 points (effectively 5 with goal difference) and we are still to play two of the teams below us. Its in our hands still and our huge squad should be able to cope with a couple of injuries and suspensions.

Kozluk cant even play right back so god knows what he would be like at left back. At the end of this season i would not renew seip or kozluks contracts 2 of the worse full backs we have had at city imo.
Also lets just hope that our keeper duke comes off his line , as the first goal gillingham scored ( with frys feeble attempt to jump ) and the 2 goals the othernight were all put in at the back door

In the past 5 matches,
with a full squad available, we have taken 1 point from 15. We will play the next 7 matches against stronger sides than those last 5, having to utilise players that have been loaned out / regarded as surplus to requirements.
CHILLAX ? At what point will you realise we have a problem ? When we kick off on the last match of the season, against Swindon, who will have already been awarded the L2 title ?

Fagan and Dagnall would be my preferred front two. Two football brains who can cause problems for any defenders. Dagnall bought several fouls on Tuesday and took his chance well. If Hanson and Wells are on the bench then there is already a plan B. Just my opinion.

I think Fagan generally does well on the right of midfield but doesn't have sufficient pace to create enough danger. He does wind up opponents though.

Hanson,Wells.

Subs.

Annerson,Dagnall,Rav
enhill,Fagan,Smalley

If Reid's wife is in labour then I'd put Syers on the wing in a 3 man midfield,with Daggers going behind the front 2 (like he's done in the 2nd halfs for the last 2 games,and played better)


If Ravo is still injured I'd put Atkinson on the bench.

I am guessing they have to plan as if Reid is not going to be there.

However I am sure if he is available he will start. It will better then having Flynn left wing lol...

If Reid is not going to be there then surely we should pick the formation to suit the players avaialable and not the other way round??

With no wingers and Bully in the back 4 why not plan to play narrow (it will be anyhow) 433 (with 3 strikers).

Flynn, Ravenhill and Jones and up top Fagan and Dagnall off Hanson or Smalley..

We can all pick a team. Sadly, it's now going to be a much weakened side. Given that PP's strongest selections have mustered just 5 points out of the last 24, it really is backs to the wall.

I recall Tommy Wright being cold shouldered all season by Chris Kamara. Kamara recalled him for the last two games and Wright was such an inspiration, he saved us from relegation. I wonder whether Branston could be a similar catalyst. He'd relish the opportunity.

3-5-2 it is then.

Ramsden, Bully and Branston at the Back.

Ravenhill Holding with Jones and Syers ball winning. Reid left-wing (back) and Mitchell right wing (Back)

Dagnall and Fagan up front.

Hanson, Wells, Flynn and anyone else we can find on the bench!!
he'll play Flynn in front of Jones.
3 at the back is could be the way to go but i think it will be 451 and for once we have no choice but to pack the midfield.

Indeed a draw is a very good result so for once Parky should be in his element ;-).

If he goes with 3 at back it needs more mobility as Branston and Bully are simply too slow.

Mitchell could operate as a wing back with jones (if ravenhill is injured), Syers and flynn in the middle. We have no natural left foot player to play left back but i gues Reid could be a makeshift wing back as he has played there i.e. very deep pretty much all season.

He may even use Syers at right back if he goes for a 4 cos he clearly doesn't want Mitchell.

It maybe Fagan on his own up front.

What ever we do its not ideal and all very sad thats its come to this in many ways.....

So you will drop the leading scorer then !! thats a good idea
what about all the defensive headers Hanson brings to the team!
Not the sulky Fagan !!!
I wouldn't play a striker with defensive duties in mind!!
.
Fagan and dagnell have far better ball control then hanson - although i admit he's be a good player to come from the bench but then again wells' pace causes more problems late on then hanson physical presence would - at this level CB's dont like playing against pace.
.
Fagan was admittedly poor last couple of games but put him top and we're a different team.

We all have varying opinions on the starting 11....The above mentioned by me is not necessarily mine but one I think he will start with ;-)

Cant be bothered looking into it but would be interested in the 11 (in the main) who took Parkie to his manager of the month award...

I am pretty sure from memory Rambo, Seip, Davies and Oliver were the back 4...

Have a look into Waynus, cheers :-)!!
