THE STILL TOP MAGGIES v The Robins.

October is going to be a crucial month for Notts, the fixtures are tough to say the least starting with Swindon.
If we are still in the top three come November, I think we'll go up, but October could be our undoing.
I was at Colchester and for the second week running Stone played as many ball to the opposition as he did to his own side, and one awful error by him playing the ball too short led to their player stroking the ball into an empty net as Stone had decided to wander up the side of his goal.
His positioning for their direct free kick goal was all wrong too. We also gave them a third goal when Baldwin played a short ball backwards to his own goal.
The defence is weak I'm afraid at this level, shipping in 8 goals in 2 games is just not good enough.
Slightly worryingly, Williams didn't seem concerned by the defensive lapses in his post match speech.
Swindon are this league's top scorers, and they may put our fragile defence to the sword. I'm fearful we will lose this one. I'm going for a 3-2 home defeat praying that I am completely wrong.
WE'RE THE ONE AND ONLY EXILES...GRRRRRR
