    Starts for both Bramall and Zelalem, hope they really are over their injuries

    Yes, I agree it’s better to wait for Emery to give a clue in his pre-match conference team update before delving into his likely starts and bench for the match. But at any rate, having beaten Sporting CP 0-1 last Thursday night’s in Portugal, Arsenal should cement qualification for the knock out stages with another win over Sporting CP this week’s Thursday night at the Ems. But I expect Emery not to over rotate his team but rotate only a few Gunners for the match. Because Sporting who are on 6 points will still be nursing a hope to reach the knock out stages to therefore come into the game strongly to at least get a draw in the match which Arsenal should deny them from getting it but dealt them another defeat blow in the match through the hands of the Gunners. And that should be the likely outcome in the match.

    Minute 41 in the Chekatrade trophy and we lead 1 – 0. Penalty by Willock after Saka fouled after a solo run

    Two minutes later and Willock gets his (and our) second. A perfect pass behind the Forest Green defence and Willock shows composure to find the back of the net.

    Gilmour on for Zelalem at the start of the second half. He played 20 minutes as a sub last week and now 45 as he works his way back to full match fitness. Bramall still on the pitch.

    Come on you young Gunners, get that 2 goal lead back. Or build on it more.

    @Ferg,

    John-Jules coming on nicely but a couple of years away. Bramall looked much better when I saw him at the Ems in the game where he wS injured again but I’m still not sure if he will make our first team. Ditto with Zelalem.

    Nketiah and Smith Rowe were training with the first team earlier today.

    Forest Green have pulled one back. Grub scoring from close range in the 60th Minute.

    10 minutes to go by my reckoning

    85th Minute and John-Jules turns in a cross from Bramall and that should be that, at least in terms of the result.

    4 minutes added time to go

    No further score but it’s enough to see us progress to the knockout stage of the competition. We are currently top of the group on 6 points Cheltenham have still to play Coventry City but they can’t both end up with more points than us.

    Thanks Andrew
    For some reason your team sheet post wasn’t present when I asked earlier.
    John Jules… is he really the Cats whiskers?

    It appears that Electronic Frontier Foundation (eff.org) took over maintenance of Privacy Badger. There is a FAQ at https://www.eff.org/privacybadger/faq

    I normally use seamonkey (the original mozilla codebase) for surfing, and I was never sure if PrivacyBadger works with it. There are suggestions the original badger did work with it.
