The XI we think Danny Cowley should go with tonight


RW: Bernard Mensah

4-4-2, with Mensah on one wing. It’s a must as far as I can see and a good reason to keep Smith in goal as we need the loan spots for the first team!

Mensah has much still to prove but hasn’t been given a chance to prove it yet.

Well Bernard, here’s your chance. Take it.


  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.
