I’d like us to go with

 

Wildsmith

 

Lees

Hutchinson

Pudil

 

Lee

Bannan

Joey

Reach

 

Forestieri

Nuhui

Joao

 

I think I’d be relatively happy starting the season like that. Have a look at Lee & Reach at wing back. Hutchinson in the middle of the back 3.

 

11 changes at half time

Not sure about Thorniley on the right side of the back 3 would prefer hutch in there on the right, vanAkren on the left (if fit) as they both can bring the ball out and look comfortable in possession with Lees holding the centre bud.

I'm hoping he plays hutch  at the back, we're playing Lincoln, so don't see the need for two defencive midfielders. Jos seems to rate kirby, so I'm hoping that he gives him a run.

I’m playing Pessy at wing back... think he could be good there.

I think we'll see quite a bit of this lad this coming season.

This will be the first indication of whether we are intending to go with 3 at the back. 

Definitely seen the pros and cons of it in the World Cup . 

 

Will also be the the first pointer as to how many of our serial injured players are genuinely on the road to proper fitness.

 

Again how many of the younger players will be genuinely pushing for a starting place if a lot more of the senior players are fit.

 

Lincoln are a physical, high tempo team so will be a good test, especially for our defenders. Signed Akinde last week.

 

No idea what the team will be

surely Lees would be the centre CB & Hutch the RCB if he's going to play in defence?

 

All though I tend to think he may put hutch centre mid still, play Lees RCB, Pudil as centre then have JVA/JT for LCB oh & Fox as well

It's a friendly, there may be training niggles, players on different stages of rehab etc. Line up could be absolutely anything. Don't read too much into it either way.

Think we might get overrun in midfield if that's the team

Which ever way we go it will give us all an idea of what we can expect re formations and personnel this season.

 

I hope some youth gets a chance but at the right times, or in the cup when against lower league teams.

 

With all the finance issues a decent cup run in both cups could give us some extra financial influence to strengthen in the summer.

In my mind this is our strongest 11 at the minute

 

                            Westwood

 

             Hutch.         Lees.       Pudil

 

Pelupessy.        Lee.      Bannan.        Reach

 

                            Forestieri

 

                 Hooper.              Fletcher 

 

Think Pelupessy could thrive as an all action wing back, and it keeps Lee and Bannan together in the middle.

Fletcher above nuhui and Joao?

As amazing as they did end of the season, for me Hooper and Fletcher are the better players

Would like to see trialist Sam Smart given a go at some point.

Not really thought of that one. For me I'd like to use the friendlies to see how far the under 23s are progressing and how they cope with older physical players, we know the first team can and give some of them more time on fitness or recovery from injury, so let's see Baker given the friendlies, if he can push on and improve it'll maybe help push palmer a little, van Akren and nielson or O'grady, kirby in the middle and hopefully the lad smart up top and mix in some first teamers
