Murphy, Stearman and Edwards Back But N'Daw Misses Out
Saturday, 16th Mar 2013 14:37

Daryl Murphy, Richard Stearman and skipper Carlos Edwards return to the Town side for today’s home game against Bolton Wanderers. Boss Mick McCarthy names only six substitutes with only five of the seven domestic loanees available.

Midfielder Guirane N’Daw misses out for personal reasons, while Elliott Hewitt has a hip problem, Frank Nouble a hamstring injury, while Lee Martin misses the second game of his three-match suspension.

Byron Lawrence, who celebrated his 17th birthday this week, is on the bench for the first time under McCarthy’s management. Aaron Mclean and Reece Brown are the domestic loanees missing out. Full match preview here.

Surely there must be a Yoof that could take the other place on the bench ? We are at home so they should all be available

Agree it can't be of harm to allow a youth player to sit on the bench even if there in no chance at all of them coming on. I find it strange too SAF would allow Brown to come here on loan unless he was going to get a look in.

I don't think a 'yoof' player at short notice would be good for their confidence. Psychologically there's a lot more to the experience than just sitting on the bench. For some of the youngsters it would be their first time on the bench and that could make them think they're on the fringe of the first team and could stop them from progressing by making them feel they're doing well enough; for other players even being on the bench is quite an experience and it hasn't been unknown for them to be over nervous and feel/be sick before being involved. I guess MMcC didn't have a suitable and prepared player ready at short notice. It also shows just how thin our squad is at the moment when we're stuggling for 18 players at home with 7 loanees involved.

Marcus - what a negative viewpoint ???? - most if not ALL Youth players worth a place at the Club, would relish a place on the bench - and it would be a tremendous CONFIDENCE boost for them.

Not saying anything for this Club - if we haven't got anyone anywhere near ready for this kind of opportunity.

But maybe that sums us up right now.

Yessss!! Excellent result by the boys. Haven't been as nervous about our team for a long time when everyone was winning and we were 0-0. Could be a really massive goal!
