This is a tricky one, as the starting 11 from the past two games has worked wonders, but some of them are undoubtedly gassed. I feel as though we should rotate with the view of having these same starters for the Nottingham Forest game. Bayo is an obvious one to rest, as is Horgan, who is clearly running himself into the ground by the end of each game.
Defence is a tough one, as you would feel Stewart and Knight are young and spry enough to play every game as needed, but Taffs is fit again. We still have no backup for JJ, and despite the excellence of McCarthy, Grimmer is undroppable right now. So what do we do here? I think it still might be beneficial to rotate in Taffs, but how do we drop Stewart OR Knight for such a move? I feel as though Stewart is simply a permanent fixture right now, as he is developing into an extraordinary talent, even at this level.
Midfield depends largely on Adineran. If he is good to go, I am hoping those young legs can take two more games, and the same with Thompson - until Gape is fully match fit, I would love to avoid dropping either of those if they have the fitness.
The most obvious questions going forward seem to be who to bring in for Bayo and Horgan, and whether to give Wheels and Kashket a rest? Scottie looks such a menace right now, that it is tempting to leave him in and see if Uche can grow into the Bayo role, with Fred coming in for Horgan. An alternative to could be perhaps bringing Samuel in and moving Knight into midfield as Taffs comes in to the defence. With Uche still looking a little off the pace, I think I might lean Samuel for the Birmingham game.
Any thoughts? Rotation seems so much easier when a team is not playing so well, but coming off these two games, it becomes a lot harder!
