I doubt they will play to many youngsters as they didnít exactly pull up trees in the papa johns trophy.  I would expect 2 or 3 fringe players like Palmer but in the main most of the subs bench will play.  I would expect Grealish to be one of them as he hasnít played for quite a period.  They have Chelsea the following week but wonít want to have had 2 weeks with no game time at all.

Main hope is

a) I donít catch covid prior or our group
b) Boris doesnít lose his bottle
c) have no injury /suspension issues
d) we play like the last 30 minutes yesterday
e) all enjoy it and donít get on the players backs should we concede
f) a goal or two for the town.
g) no red cards for town players

I am still of the view that we can give them a good game as all the chopping and changing on the city side will make them less fluid. 

1-4 defeat I reckon with the last two city goals in the last 10 minutes as they bring on superstars to close it out.

Come on you reds

Tbf, like ourselves, I believe our opponents will also be weakened by an international call up.
