All of Warnock's teams play the same way. They foul persistently to break your rhythm as a team, waste time, niggle you and try to nick games from set pieces. They are also very well organised defensively and every player knows his role with and without the ball. Bloody awful stuff which works at EFL level but is inadequate for the Prem. So prepare for a slog, give nothing away and nick one of our chances.

Can't see us winning this - they've only lost once so far in the league and we all know how Warnock teams will play. Without CN and PJ, it's made much harder. Heart says snatch a 1-0 win, head says a 1-2 reverse.

It’s been the best part of 25 years since we beat a team with NW at the helm when he was at Plymouth I think. We are well overdue!!!

If we can score early which forces them to attack then I think a comfortable 3-0 but the longer we go without scoring the more likely 0-1 late deflected winner for them.

Personally can't see us winning this. Our record against Warnock teams is far from impressive and at this juncture we are a bit inconsistent to say the least. So I expect a 1-0 defeat in a horrible niggly encounter.

I think it will be a dog of a game ending at 0-0. I have mellowed towards Colin in recent years and he knows how to organise a side and make them difficult to beat. We need to be able to overcome sides like this so hoping for a breakthrough at some point in the game. If we go behind we are bollixed though.

Need to get an early goal to bring them out otherwise I think they may grind us down , Watching them the other night versus Blackburn their defence and midfield look very solid . 2-1 Toney and a late Forss winner

they have only scored 9 goals haven't they ?
1 0 defeat would mean stuffed as far as I'm concerned,pointless keep including Marcondes Nick he has been poor and weak and embarrassing the way he is forever on the floor.I’d rather give a promising young B team player a chance as most other clubs are having to do.

No idea about the result but last year's match was probably one of the most entertaining matches at GP last season.

I reckon they will target Toney for some rough stuff, aware most of our goals come from him, we will certainly need 11
out there who are going to give it their all, hard to score against them and we seem to be conceding after going in front.

This will be an ugly game of football, I worry we are playing the same type of Boro side we always lost to when we first got promoted.. still.. can see a very scrappy 1-0

0-1 to a sh*tehouse goal. Smash and grab.

I hope I'm wrong but tactically we won't beat a Warnock team; they'll come to kick us off the park, crowd the midfield and not let us settle. We seriously struggle against this type of gameplan and M'boro under Neil will apply it to perfection. I'm hoping for a 1-1 but feel it will end 1-2.

We also have bloody Linington as referee who always stands back with BBC a weak smile on his face and allows teams to kick us.
