Specialist help may do the trick

BY all accounts, we were dealing with Doncaster's threat fairly well on Tuesday night, only for a quick free-kick to cost us.
I am hoping there will be a big atmosphere for the FA Cup-tie at Boundary Park on Saturday when the teams go up against each other for the second time in five days.
Everyone knows what it would mean to make it through to the next stage — and hopefully land a big tie.
It is all about getting into the hat for that third-round draw.
Last season, a draw at Southend ensured we did just that. Then the draw was made with the winner getting the chance to go to Anfield, which gave us a great incentive for the replay.
After that, the buzz around the club in the build-up to Liverpool was special. Everyone was bright and happy and it was the highlight of our season.
A player who won't be participating in the Doncaster cup-tie is Dean Bouzanis.
I know he will be gutted, but I’m sure he will learn from the mistake that led to him being sent off.
What it shows with Alex Cisak coming straight back from his loan at Portsmouth is what a good job the gaffer did to put the recall clause into that deal.
Hopefully, I will be in a position this week to train before Saturday, so I can be in contention to play.
I have been to visit a specialist in London and the work with him has helped. I am feeling a lot better than I have.
The trick now is to clear the final hurdle, by replicating the movements I would be completing in a game in training.
