Can Ollie Grieve keep Mr ‘Goalman’ quiet? (Last meeting he only allowed him 2 goals!) Howell will have to look on with a sore finger. He could make it useful by pointing the way out to Dons! ‘Peewee’ Condon, North’s reliable Goal bird. Laid 5 against Tigers last Saturday. (‘Scray will need plenty of salt with them tomorrow). Kev Curran, umpiring Racing Scribes v. 3XY on Sunday – asks ‘em to keep off his chin! As if they could miss it!”
