    Stoke city(home)predictions FL trophy

    A wake up call if ever there was one
    We are about to take part in the check a trade trophy
    One thing that we need to be careful of is not to completely dilute the team with youngsters a healthy balance for a cup we could genuinely have a chance in
    Anyhow a good test to start with and tre pembertons return
    2-0 win.

    Ill go 2-1 for us to win. Dont want to risk injuries to players required for valuable league fixtures,also we have 3 Internationals up on duty so get starting with Whittingham,Feeney,Gladwin and Antonsson,as they "need the game time". No harm giving Nuttall a run-out too ......

    It sounds like another decent performance, with the blend of experience and youth about right. I think six of the Development Squad got game-time. The clean sheet is always comforting. I hope the injury to Williams isn't something serious.
    It does look as if this lad, Joe Nuttall, is one of those natural goal-scorers.
    A match-report would be appreciated.

    It sounds as if all the academy players involved did well and certainly didn't do their chances any harm
    I echo your sentiments on Williams I hope its not serious hopefully the international break came at the right time
    One thing which concerns me is how we made 10 changes and considering we have to only make 7 maximum to keep within the rules means we are heading for a fine and in our situation that's pretty poor stuff.

    I'm hoping the authorities will be sensible, Robin. With international calls, fatigue and injury niggles, TM had a real problem with the regulations. We won the game, anyway, so I'd have thought any punishment would be minimal. The other thing is, we were playing against an Under-23 squad, so it would be illogical to be heavy-handed because we put out some Development players too.

    Sadly aucks the authorities are never light on us if anything they use us as an example to any other's wishing to do the same.
