Fieldy: Nathan Delfouneso has said he was overjoyed to get on the scoresheet in last nights clash against Blackpool, but he still doesn't understand why he had a goal ruled out.

'It was a proud moment for me getting another goal in the Premier League, but the main thing is that we got the 3 points.

Thought for the day: 'There is a fine line between 'being a football fan' and 'mental illness.'

I cannot recall such a previous occasion when we've suffered so many injuries at the same time. On the one hand of course, it means that our youngsters are being provided with the opportunity to step up to the plate and produce, but the downside is that we are missing experienced players whose presence in the starting line-up would be an important boost at this key stage of our season. I know I keep harping on about it, but I'm not keen, or indeed happy, about the reserve team fixtures being switched to Hinckley United's Greene King Stadium. I understand the reasons why, and it has to be admitted that Hinckley is hardly the other side of the country, but it still makes it more difficult to get along to these games and cheer our youngsters on.
