Who will be out 1st teamers tonight?

Can't really risk RHM or McEachran.

Ward, Brewitt, Minturn, kinsella? Young*?

One of the qualifying player criteria "subsequently starts the immediately following First Team Fixture" - what if they get injured in the meantime?

* don't risk him

I think your assessment is right, but yes I dont think we will risk Young.

Is Shade back? If not, someone has to play up front, even if Obodo plays for the first team not the academy tonight. RHM? Austin? Young? Genuinely none of them appeal. Perhaps Genesini fancies a go?

The academy have an FA Youth Cup game against Luton tonight, which is unironically a more important game. I think there might be some reluctance to gut the youth side to fulfil this fixture.

I wouldn't be completely shocked if Hatswell and Flynn play this one frankly.

Going by his pace and willingness I would try Kokolo up front.

Good thought. Maybe. He's not played for so long I'd have thought it risks injury without rests. But I'll leave that to the medical experts.

Other than Ward, Minturn and Kinsella (on the basis that he'll hopefully be benched for Saturday) I'd try and avoid any real first teamers other than Kokolo for 45 for the match fitness.

I think Brewitt needs a night off too.

Pathetic that we can barely fulfil this fixture when we were supposed to be taking every cup seriously but here we are.

I didn't think we can progress in this cup, so whats the point in taking it seriously?

Which I think is half of the point being made - squad so thin we couldn't even attempt to take this cup seriously, which goes against one of the stated aims of taking cups seriously/progressing in all competitions, or something like that.

Correct. We should have been able to at least learn something from these fixtures. What are our second XI like and which youth have a chance of stepping up next year. The reality is that we are so thin that we have no second XI.

We run the risk of a fine wont we if we play a weakened weakend team? Good luck paying that!

Its going to be Flynn, Hatswell and Mildenhall on the bench isnt it.
