I don’t get why given a choice of having him available for 1 game out of 3 or 2 out of 3 you wouldn’t choose 2.
He's rested against Doncaster cos they are second bottom but that didn't quite go as planned but we didn't get beat.
He plays against Portsmouth because he's our best and most experienced defender and we need that type of player on the pitch for games like that.
And barring that he hasn't picked up a significant injury against Portsmouth he plays on Saturday against Accrington because that is a game we simply need to win.
Why wouldn't he be able to play on Tuesday night then Saturday bearing in mind he had the previous Saturday off and after Saturday could have 2 weeks rest if required missing the efl Cup game at Carlisle on Tuesday, the FA Cup game at home to Hartlepool ( I would really expect him to play in that)up to the following week's league game at Cheltenham where he would definitely be expected to play.
