I'm not a fan of change for changes sake, I think it sends out the wrong message to the rest of the players
Fox did nothing wrong against Luton and in my opinion deserves to keep the shirt, or what's the point in working hard when you know you're going to get dropped as soon as the first choice is fit
Obviously there are circumstances that the average fan isn't party to.
Tactics play a big part, the coach see's the players everyday in training so there could be an issue we aren't aware of
He may employ tactics which suit one or the other better
Then there's the players that walk back into the team when fit, but we don't have as many of them as some people would think
For me, with the system we play, they are Westwood, Lees, and Fletcher, I know some people would add Bannan, Hutchinson, Reach, Harris, and Lee to that list, but we have such good options in midfield these days, that I'm not sure those players are undroppable
I don't know what the loan agreement is with Murphy, maybe he has to play
Harris is the interesting one for me, if he keeps up the fine form he will soon find himself on the undroppable list, if he's not on it already
He reminds me a lot of Jermaine Johnson, he has the ability to take the ball far up the pitch and give the defenders a breather, he has more control than JJ too, and he can be trusted to help out in defence which JJ wasn't particularly good at.
I can't wait to see what team is picked
For me, we have to match Preston up, and play a 4-5-1 like they do
I hope Bullen puts Luongo in the middle with Hutchinson, which if he goes with Murphy and Harris out wide, would leave Bannan, Lee, and Reach fighting for the final spot, but I don't think Bullen is brave enough to do that
I'd have a midfield 5 of Murphy, Hutchinson, Luongo, Lee and Harris for this one
I know how good Bannan can be, but we are going to be under the cosh a bit in this one, and Bannan sits too deep, I think we will need players who can break out quickly
