So what do we reckon the side will look like for the FA Cup tie then, under (sort of) new management?

 

I am expecting either Wildsmth or Dawson in goal (Bruce will know all about Westwood anyway), and would think Baker, Thorniley and Penney might get starts at the back.  Maybe Pelupessy back in the middle and Winnall to get a start?  Would be good to see a couple of the other kids on the bench - maybe Borukov for a subs place?

 

Can't see any value in playing Reach, Bannan, Fletcher from the start.

Being mid table, surely there is no excuse for not playing our strongest side

Any player that plays on Saturday will be putting in a shift in an attempt to impress the new manager.

 

Baring that in mind, and the fact that we’ve played a lot of football lately I’d go with....

 

Dawson

 

Baker

Thornley

Pudil

Penney

 

Matias

Pelupessey

Jones

Preston

 

Winnall

Nuhiu

I'd make some changes. Not because I don't take the cup seriously but because I'd like Bruce and his assistants to get a good look at everybody in match action.                     

 

                            Wildsmith 

Baker            Lees              Thorniley       Pudil         

 Boyd         Pelupessy          Jones     Penney

                          Joao       Winnall

No point playing a strong side and risking needless injury to key players in what is a nothing game.

 

Bruce's right hand men should take the opportunity to see for themselves what some of the youngsters can do - Thorniley, Penny, Baker etc.

 

Reach, Bannan etc deserve to be allowed to sit this one out.

Play the best team and if we are winning comfortably, then think about conserving energy for key players. 

 

I’m not expecting Luton to be an easy game.

I’d be tempted to use the same back 4.

 

Rest Hutchinson and Reach.

 

Give Winnal and Nuhui 90 minutes.

I’d play as strong a side as possible. Luton are going well in L1 and we will have had 4 days to rest, with another week until our next match. Might as well try and have a bit of a cup run

Back four are beginning to gain some confidence and understanding: no change.

Rest Fletcher, Reach and Hutchinson.

Keep Boyd as he's getting some form too.

Are Joao and Onomah fit to play?

 

Dawson

Palmer, Lees, Hector, Fox

Onomah (or Matias), Bannan, Pelupessy, Boyd

Joao (or Winnall), Nuhiu

Bring on Winnall after 65 mins regardless.

 

Look to get Hunt/Kirby/Preston game time depending on situation of the game.

Why rest Westwood he's only played 3 matches in a year surely he needs more to get him up to full speed

Penney should be played left back or left wing back or not on the pitch at all right now.

 

The kid needs to have one role to learn to be an asset to the first team right now, not pushed from pillow to post.     Look what it did to Reach being shoved around the pitch for nigh on two years before he became the next best thing.

Agreed, it will not be an easy game, just don't think a full strength side is appropriate for this one.  A mixture of youth and first teamers with some of the big players on the bench seems likely to me.

 

I haven't seen what sort of teams Bruce has put out for FA Cup matches in the past.
