A one week break has once again been much needed for batman and Jesus to make a full recovery from their efforts against AFC Wimbledon. The same cannot be said of Baz though who has only got up to 92% fitness while AJ is at an alarming 84% having turning up unfit to training before the game. There is some good news as Erkifino is available after his 1 match ban while trunky has made a return to light training but hasn't yet started full training. The remainder of the squad are fit and ready to go if selected.
Rock bottom of League Two, this is another game in which The Gaffer will field a fringe side for a second match in a row. However, the same approach was taken when the Vipers took Shrewsbury on in the Vans Trophy and were beaten 3:1. Such complacency needed to be avoided this time around!
Probable Starting XI
Craig Forrest - BobMem - Dermotron - Baz
ZanSnake - pyromyst - Liam

They may be bottom but we have never beaten them.
Time for the reserves to put that right.
If Felix or CF show, give me Zansnake's spot Gaffer.
I won't let you down.
Need a better performance this time out.
Need to sort my fitness out, what's going on? I was super fit for the majority of the season
Me? I have a dodgy leg, it was probably left hanging by a thread but I'll recover. You won't hear me moan about it though. Or tell you repeatedly how much blood I lost. Or even tell you that I could have lost the leg altogether. Oh no...I'll soldier on. Team player me.
AJ - has he been "warned/find" by the gaffer?
Reporting for bench duty or better if required
Ready for a new success!
That was a cheap move Dermo, feinting injury to get me a 6 so you can get the better form
Ready to put in some work
Soon we leave for league 1!

20 players had made an appearance at training for the Vipers ahead of the last game, a 1:1 draw at AFC Wimbledon. That hadn't impressed The Gaffer and this time around, only 19 had made an appearance which won't do anything to improve the mood of the Vipers manager.
Of those 19, one (trunky) is injured and another two should have been rested (Baz and AJ). Instead, Baz stays in the side due to trunky's injury and AJ is named on the bench once more as Fodster has now missed three games in a row.
The opponents are a team bottom of the league which explains The Gaffer's decision to once again field a fringe team. There is only one change to the side that drew in the last match which is a 5th start of the season in attacking midfield for pyromyst who replaces Redknapp69.
The fringe side once again made a slow start to the game, seeing Shrewsbury rattle the bar before taking the lead shortly afterwards. Thankfully, they had no trouble in conjuring up chances this time around as Janis89 restored the balance before putting the Vipers head with his 20th goal of the season. The game itself was a real battle for the players as no less than 4 players were booked. Shrewsbury came close to leveling the score a few times but the game was put beyond doubt after pyromyst made it 3:1. However, it was far from over as there were a few nervy moments for the Vipers as Shrewsbury pulled one back and pressed for a winner. The Vipers held on though and secured 3 points that puts the team 12 points clear at the top!
The league is practically ours
