The thing is, in a back line that gets changed week in week out, Dawson’s been the one constant. Why? He’s done ok this season, but with an experienced and highly capable keeper waiting in the wings, has he really justified keeping his place throughout the whole season?
It’s quite clear his confidence is shot now (not surprising!) and the errors are becoming more frequent. In addition to his mistake(s) yesterday, he arguably cost us 2 points last week against Rotherham too.
IMO he needs resting for the sake of his future career.
