If McCarthy is out it's a game changer. Terrible blow for him personally as he was playing superbly, and for us as I feel he was marked out for manmarking duties later on. There is no way any team worth their salt won't attack us now we are down that three.
Add in an uncertain or indifferent midfield and it looks interesting to say the least. Big challenge ahead.
Re a forward missing out for Andrews it must be Kev if that is the case. Unfortunate certainly but equally certain to be him.
Unless we made the change that is screaming out which is Flynn to midfield, that would accommodate them all and solidify the middle. (Watched the Sunday Game highlights and MacAuley looked off it, big time.)
