The XI we think Danny Cowley should go with tonight


DC: James Wilson

Wilson is one I championed when he arrived, but we’ve seen so little of him his overall contribution hasn’t be evaluated properly as yet.

He filled in well at Macclesfield but as a right back, but he’s usually a right-sided centre back. Tonight he should get the chance to operate there and maybe put pressure on Bozzy and Shackell.

Without sounding too harsh, he stands more chance of platting fog than forcing one of those two onto the bench, not because he lacks ability but because they’re upper League One quality.


  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.
