The XI we think Danny Cowley should go with tonight

DC: Scott Wharton

Which planet would you have thought I was from if I said to you that Scott Wharton wouldn’t get a kick after he joined from Blackburn?

He’s a top quality defender and one who will never let the side down, but Jason Shackell’s arrival caught everyone out. Now, the youngster is on the bench and likely to be recalled one would imagine, if he doesn’t get a game soon.

He’ll play against Scunthorpe tonight though, almost certainly.


  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.
