We already know he will be out for months! What's new?

The new stuff is everything between Goalkeeper and the exclamation mark.

You're either thick or trying to appear smart.

I asked Nizzy last night if he thought he'd be rested. 

He said that he wants to play for two reasons :

1) To keep his momentum going and be firing on all cylinders going into the playoffs. 

2) To hopefully win the Tartan Boot.

Personally, I'd keep Nizzy out. Montrose have been a bunch of hatchet men so far, especially the lad Watson. No point risking him. Give game time to Duggan.

Exactly.

If It was against anyone other than Forfar or Montrose then aye play him.

Montrose know the only glimmer of hope we have for the playoffs is Nisbet. They’ll be out targeting him. Get rid of him, and that’s one less team they need to worry about.

I reckon a fit Duggan can cause problems. We’re finishing 3rd anyway as Forfar have had a strong run in. No way will they want to relinquish 2nd. Keeping Nizzy on the bench is imperative until the play offs

I’d play Nizzy. Keeps him fresh, sharp and, if he scores, his confidence up.

Is he really going to lose sharpness/freshness/confidence between Saturday and Tuesday/Wednesday (whatever day the first leg is on)?

The fife free press post thing Matty Elder put up Nisbet says he will be shooting for everywhere to get the Tartan Boot. So he’s 100% starting

Do goals in the playoffs count or is the cut off Saturday for the Tartan boot?
Shankland and Dobbie are obviously out of the question now, but would be interesting to see how Henderson and Nisbet finish if the playoffs are included.

Are Montrose really going to try and deliberately injure him?

I don't think they will, but our record with injuries this season is atrocious. 

Nisbet is our only hope at coming close to promotion, playing him on Sat is a risk.

It genuinely wouldn't surprise me. While they've got nothing to play for, we've already seen them go out their way to injure Vaughan in the first game, and then in the second they had a boy elbow Matthews in the first half.

Why chance even chance it, we have absutly f**k all to gain and the player of the season to lose if it goes wrong.  We need at least 2 goals every game just to be competitive so if he gets crocked you can forget it.

Quite a shocking statement to make.

As if a professional  would go out to deliberately  injure another.

What will your excuses be when you cock up the play offs again.

Really  looking forward to witnessing your trophy  party on Saturday.  ( oh wait a minute,not happening)

Absolutely agree, surely McGlynn must grow a pair, show some authority and just tell Nisbet he is far too important to the team to be risked at Montrose on what is a very poor surface. If he plays and it goes badly wrong (which being Rovers it could well do) the potential £19K extra prize money will not cover the medical bills, let alone make any chance of winning the playoffs without our talisman go down the toilet.

After all he isn’t going to lose any sharpness in 3 or 4 days for goodness sake.

If it is just a Tartan Boot Nisbet is going to get upset over, I can send him an old pair of Tartan slippers to keep him happy and he can wear them at 3PM on Saturday with his feet up - SORTED
