Sunday Saddler Supplement

Sunday Saddler Supplement

Another away defeat and another load of questions that need answers. Just nine points off relegation, things are becoming a little bit of a cause for concern.

Saturday's defeat at Exeter, whether it was a penalty or not, is showing we may have a problem. Don't get me wrong, the 1-0 win over promotion chasing Colchester with 10-mean was a fantastic result, but if we cannot turn that into a string of wins especially againts a side like Exeter, then there is a problem.

Many fans are starting to question the authority and leadership of Chris Hutchings. Troy Deeney highlighted how the team was literally picking up their wages and not putting their shift in, as well as no one being willing enough to say anything about it - slightly worrying!

With another struggling side up next in Stockport, failure to pick up any points will really sound the alarm bells. Although I have to say, I really can't see us winning again this season! With eight games to go, four are at home, which is the only place I can see the points coming from. Away from home, with fixtures like Huddersfield, Swindon and Carlisle on the horizon, things may get tougher before the season finishes.

It seems to me that a major clearout in the summer is needed, which may include the manager...do you agree?
