Interesting looks to be playing Conroy as holding midfield by the look of it as we won't play 5 at the back against Crewe IMO.

As Wellens has played Conroy in that role before.

Red card for Dunne today.
Can't help thinking that either Rose injury he picked up on Friday was a bit worse than he thought when he played through it, or, Dunne is being given his last chance to earn a contract for next season by Wellens.

Hopefully.  It worries me switching to three at the back at this level without a lot of planning.  The defenders just are not good enough to figure out positioning usually.  If Conroy sits in front of the back four it means Doughty being released behind Robinson and Anderson and Bennett probably floating about.  Dunne provides the legs to enable Doughty to forget about tracking back too much.

Also hoping this means both full backs are given full license to attack.

I would suggest that the line up today will be

                  McCormick
Knoyle  Woolf       Broadbent   Koiki
                     Conroy
Dunne    Anderson   Doughty     Bennett
                   Robinson

With Knoyle and Koiki playing wingbacks with Conroy covering behind them effectively giving us 3 at the back while attacking.

I don't know if he is still injured but I heard he turned down a loan move to the Conference before the deadline so Wellens questioned his attitude.

I liked Smith when he has played, hes a better option for me than Dunne.

BRovers fans seem to think Broadbent hasn’t been playing due to ‘personal problems’.

Glad he’s back, though.

Wellens didn't think he was good enough going backwards, which to be fair, given our defensive improvement, you have to give him.  There was some specific wording about tracking runners I think.

That was exactly the reason given, hardly played at Rovers and then came in and played 8 straight for us, so felt he needed a rest.  Then we became solid at the back so he couldn't get his place back..
