Town Remain Seventh
Saturday, 2nd Jan 2021 17:25

Town remain seventh, one place off the play-offs on goal difference with a game in hand, following Saturday’s League One fixtures.

Most of the teams around the Blues weren’t in action due to Covid-related postponements and in the case of the Accrington-Portsmouth fixture a frozen pitch.

However, Charlton in sixth were beaten 2-0 at Hull City, who moved ahead of Pompey into second. Lincoln City remain top having won 2-1 away at AFC Wimbledon.

Sunderland stay 11th after drawing 0-0 at Northampton, while Oxford moved up to 12th only four points behind the Blues having won 5-1 away at bottom club Burton Albion, although having played two more games.

Elsewhere, on-loan Town midfielder Idris El Mizouni was left out of the Cambridge United 18 as the U’s won 2-1 at Grimsby in League Two in Paul Hurst’s first game as manager of the Mariners, for whom ex-Blues full-back Elliott Hewitt was on target.

El Mizouni’s return to the Blues looks very much on the cards now we’re into January when there is the facility for his spell to be cut short.

The 20-year-old Tunisian international has been unable to establish a starting role in the Cambridge side since his return to the Abbey Stadium for his second loan stint in September, while Town have been short of midfield options due to injury in recent weeks.

Lincoln are taking full advantage of others not playing, games in hand or not town have never been a chasing, hunting teams down type of club,

We have moved from 8th to 7th on the PPG table which could be important.

Moved up one place in the PPG table. It proves we are better when we don't play lol

I fear the more games we have in hand the less likely we are to take advantage of them...I'd rather have the points in the bag and have to watch other clubs play catch up!...see we have the same goal difference as the mighty Crewe (that says it all).

It’s all still to play for but I’d rather be Lincoln than us right now as they have the points on the board, top the league and are free scoring - all of which we are not.

Our lengthy lay off will mean we’ll probably struggle in the first few games back.

I think having El Miz back will be as good (or better than) as any signing we are likely to make this month.

When we start playing and losing again. Lambert will have plenty of excuses. This lay off will have done us no good in lots of ways. It will play right into Lamberts hands. And pretty much guarantees he gets another crack next season. Evans won't pull the trigger with all what's going on and we are stuffed.

Despite my love for ITFC this season is beginning to feel less and less important to me. In light of all that is going on in the world football is NOT going to get me down! It's time to look at it for what it is, which is supposed to be entertainment! Personally I do believe that we'll be ok should this season be played to a conclusion, but if not? Theres another season after this one! It's not life or death, unlike other aspects of the past year.

Jimmy yep, cos Evans is a minge bag but you all worship him regardless...

Saxonblue74 added 12:29 - Jan 3
81, anyone who doesn't share your unhealthy anti Evan's obsession isn't necessarily an "Evan's worshipper"

Without an owner in the present situation we'd be in the you know what.
