    If Anene isn’t fit on Tuesday I would expect Walker to start in the middle; he’s a tall lad, technically good (the ball stuck to his feet when played to him) and quick. He’s obviously a bit different...

    Dave has probably left it too long to give Charlie and Green a rest, especially as Callum and Ollie have, by all accounts, looked lively since playing. Powell has also played his best football for us...

    Quick to blame Ainley and Lowery, again. Green was just as culpable against Barnsley and we might have been better off playing Jonah in the holding role. Fact is we lose more with Wintle as a CB than...
