The XI we think Danny Cowley should go with tonight

I’m sure Kellan Gordon will get a run out, he’s got a lot of promise but hasn’t been able to dislodge Neal Eardley from the side.

Is anyone surprised? You win divisions by blending experience and youth, but if you have one in competition with the other, experience will win over. Tonight id the youngster’s chance to show what he can do and maybe force his way into Danny’s thoughts for a spot on the bench.

Remember, he’s not solely a full back and could contribute further up the field.

DL: Adam Crookes

I’m putting them together on a page because I don’t have pictures of Crookes to use!

The young lad has to pay, he made a mistake against Mansfield as well as one against Blackburn, but in both games he showed character to recover and put in decent displays.

He should be given a start tonight.


  1. Forget the doubters… they don’t have a clue. Akinde is playing well, the front players link with him well and the team is winning. I don’t get this lack of confidence assumption. It is about the team not individual goal stats… Akinde,have a rest and be on it again at Port Vale.

  2. Grant Smith not on bench Saturday pending a possible loan move. Surely the third string becomes second string and needs games… Not Smith for me. Akinde? Can’t see it. He has just been onvolved in 3 games in 10 days. Even if he bags a couple people will say it was only against a second string defence. The opportunity I expect will be given to Rheady to push for a start with the regular back 4 rested except for Toffolo.
