>Osman ban stands for tonight

he red card shown to Abdul Osman on Saturday WILL stand and the midfielder will serve a three game ban starting with tonight’s game at home to Morecambe. Sammo had hoped that an appeal would be successful but this time the decision stands and we will be without Osman for the game tonight along with the visit of Aldershot on Saturday and the trip to Hereford next Tuesday night.

So a reshuffle needed tonight then and it’s likely to mean a place for Kevin Thornton in the first eleven with Michael Jacobs possibly slotting in the middle of the park. The presence of Osman will be sorely missed in the next few games though and we’ll certainly need to adapt the style a tad in midfield to accommodate his replacements. Jacobs and Thornton are more craft than muscle and it’ll be interesting to see if that means a slight adjustment to tactics for the coming fixtures.
