….depends if you read this late Friday or early Saturday really.
Similar squad to our last game, nobody is cup-tied or denied permission by their parent club.
Lennell John Lewis remains unavailable through the injury which forced him off against Cambridge a few weeks back. The G.E.T. reports that Ritchie (richey? Richie?) Jones has been ill all week, so isn’t available.
In last week’s odd book-end game (early lead, late winner), Andy Cook was injured so we await news on him. He’s expected to be involved. Midfielders Scott Neilson, Alex Rodman and Paddy McLaughlin missed that game, but are all back and so is player-coach Chris Doig.
McKeown, Hatton, Thomas, Pearson, McDonald, Kerr, Disley, Colbeck, Cook, Hannah, Hearn, Hedge (GK) Bignot, Doig, Thanoj, Rodman, McLaughlin, Neilson, Walker, Winfarrah
Hatton Pearson McDonald Thomas
Colbeck Kerr Disley McLaughlin
subs; Hedge (GK) Bignot Doig Thanoj Neilson Rodman Hearn
I’m going to go for seven subs for the Cup, think that’s right as remember Hedge being a sub vs Rushall in the last round.
I expect one of McLaughlin, Neilson or Rodman, in that preferential order to replace Jones, and the other 2 to be on the bench, although one question has to be whether Joe Colbeck starts ahead of Neilson. It seems likely that both Paul Walker and Caine Winfarrah will drop out.
