Tomorrow night, Michael Appleton’s men try to blunt the Blades managed by Chris Wilder. On Saturday when the full time whistle was blown by Mr Boyeson I felt a twinge of regret as we have 2 long absentees in the form of Aaron Martin and Wes Thomas. In my own mind I reckon that Michael Appleton wouldn’t have signed Antonio Martinez had Wes Thomas not succumbed to a season ending injury. I feel sorry for Aaron Martin as his injury was a fluke.
Without Conor McAleny and Antonio Martinez would we have reached the FA Cup 5th round? Hindsight is a marvellous tool.
If Robbie Hall, Chris Maguire, Curtis Nelson and Kane Hemmings are out again tomorrow night I hope that we make a few positional changes maybe give Joe Rothwell 60 minutes? We lacked creativity and lacked depth on the bench on Saturday.
Here’s my wishing for lineup tomorrow: Eastwood, Edwards, Dunkley, Nelson, Skarz, Johnson, Ledson, Lundstram, McAleny, Hemmings, Hall.
