Thoughts? Could be a good runout for some of the younger players such as howley , reid , burroughs etc

We needed another game after the Norwich match was cancelled. A few players are undercooked for sure.

Just a shame it's so close to the first game of the season but will be some useful minutes for a lot of players.

Give a few 45minute run outs for players to help get them up to speed. MR will know who needs what

I'd say that's a good shout as those same guys are likely to feature in the League Cup game v Northampton on the 11th
Yep my thinking exactly, a lot of them haven't had a chance at 90 mins. So it makes sense to get minutes in before a competitive game.

I'd assume a lot of the side that finished today would start on Tuesday.

Why would you bother when this is to help the fitness of the lads that'll play next week.

He needs minutes as he has hardly played, surely he will be on the bench against Forest?

Based of a guess of what the first team will be on Sunday, I’d go for:

Wilson
Hyam Cranie Rose
Dacosta Howley ???? (Not Allen or Shipley) Souaré
Jones
Nee Walker

Back three and Souaré just because they look like they need minutes.
Coventry XI now so i assume Hyam and Rose wont be involved but rest probably not far off, more youngsters probably.

Tavares will probably be ahead of Nee considering he hasn’t gone with the first team

Beating a non league wouldn't boost their confidence too much I would guess

Not sure so many fringe players will be involved now after most featured against Wolverhampton
We have first team games on Sunday and Tuesday so I suspect they will be kept back for those with fringe players likley to start against Northampton
Got to be question marks over the two trialists if they haven't been offered deals yet

TBH I wish we took the cups seriously. We aren’t Chelsea.

Thought last Sunday was a good commited performance v Wolves I would expect v Nuneaton to feature those who didn’t play or played just a short time, perhaps Godden Walker, Drysdale Burroughs, Howley, want to see more of him even at just 17 he looks the part to me & hopefully Bright
