Pett to do 60 mins. and Freck for half an hour with O'Connor suspended? Can Gordon do a job at right back to give Eardley a rest? If Anderson plays rather than rested it may give us an indicator of going to 4-3-3 at the weekend.
Agreed, had we got something against Mansfield I think it would have been taken more seriously. OK we are the holders, but not many teams have won it back to back. Besides the league is far more important.
Our line up clearly shows where our priority lies this season. Will be good for game time for many which can only be a decent thing and possibly a run out for the two youth players on the bench late on
