Good or bad thing what's everyone's thoughts

Good for me give the players a bit of rest perhaps give them say 5 days off

Not good: could have done with pushing on but 'playing catch up' has workedvfor us before: promotion season 6 years ago.

Impossible to decide for me. Obviously we have time for injured players to recover fitness, but apart from Oldham it will mean we will have 1 or 2 more games than others to play in April, which is likely to be disadvantage.

If we win some will say that we did so because we were fresh. If we lose some will say that we did so because we were stale.

Fit young men in their twenties who earn a living as professional footballers should be able to cope with either. My view is that it makes no difference.

I think it's a good thing. I think some of our players have needed a rest. It's what we do with the time that counts. I agree with giving the players a few days off. I believe we will probably come back fresher - mentally and physically.

Unless it’s glove-manufacture, pretty long I’d say. What a waste eh? With his wage we could have got a promising young midfielder in.

Flynn thinks it will help.

Quotes from the Argus

“I need a rest and the players do too,” said the manager after the match on Friday.

“It’s been a long season. It will refresh them and it’ll give Labs, Matty Dolan and Crofty a chance to be back for the Yeovil game.

“It’s a pleasant surprise for us, as long as we back it up."

Playing really well for Hereford alonside O' Sullivan. He should never have gone to Falkirk.

His arrival certainly coincides with them moving away from the relegation zone.

I'd be very disappointed for him if he wasn't playing well in National Division North.
