Westwood probably taking a little nap. 

 

He was at the match tonight wearing his club gear , not sat at home.

Wildsmith did ok tonight and is a solid enough deputy.

 

Westwood is still the best keeper at the club and his experience and organisation  could be so important for us this season.

 

Unfortunately, you're never entirely convinced how many games on the trot you will get out of him.

I was joking obviously but glad he was there nursing a headache, bit quieter than home.😁

The lack of trust the players have in Wildsmith is so apparent though, I’ve never seen so many SWFC players defending inside the 6 yard box 

 

We have a massive Summer ahead of us on the goalkeeping front....

 

If we have the chance we should cut Wildsmith and Dawson loose - selfishly I f we could I would keep Dawson as a back up to an experienced #1 but I think he could be a number one eventually in league one or two at some point. But really we should let him attempt a proper career

 

Wildsmith won’t ever be a number one in the top 4 divisions.

 

Then...we need a #1 who can play 35+ games a season

A new number 1 this summer is probably the most important signing we will make. Release KW will free up the best part of 30k a week, even if we spend half that its good enough for a good keeper at this level.

If he was being rested why wasn't he on the bench as a backup? How often does the sub keeper actually come on? It all seems a bit odd to me.

Tiring work sitting on the bench, risks tweaking the shoulder.

If he wasn't been risked because of a slight groin tweak what's the point of putting him on the bench?

 

If he's fit to be on the bench and come on if needed, he would have started.

 

Jackson was on the bench as back up.

I heard he was being rested not he had a tweak.

I read somewhere that Thompson said he had felt a slight groin tweak so it was decided not to risk it.

Plus if he was on the bench he’d have to warm up the same, do the drills etc in case he had to come on and be as good as ready to go so isn’t a full rest

Thompson said about Westwood and Dunkley being out.

 

'It was games catching up with them. Both of them have not had a lot of football in the last year. Chey hadn't played since February and then he played five games in a really short period of time.

Keiren felt his groin. He has had a lot of kicking to do and, at the end of the day, you can't take risks.

I don't think they're massively serious. We will see how they are next week. I'm hoping they are not long-term.'

Dom Howson said on Twitter he had a knock.

Dunkley tweeted before the match that he had a hamstring tear

If he had a tear that's not good and would mean being out for a while.
