It’s good that there’s cover, but are these youngsters actually going to play at all?

Yeah, that's my point. I wouldn't want someone here for a month to be playing over Bird, which means barring another injury to Rawlinson and/or Bird, they will sit on the bench for a month, with maybe starting a tin pot FA trophy game?

Hardly seems worth it on their front.

I suppose Neal Ardley might be running out of options or attempting to add some young blood to the squad to balance things out better.

I've actually heard of him, he's quite good and considered a bright prospect.

However, he doesn't have a lot of experience and even in the English leagues he lacks it. I don't think he's actually played a competitive league game for Wigan, but when he was playing in the Island of Man he was being chased by Reading and some other Championship teams which would say he's got something about him.

At this level, it's a good place to learn due to how physical the league can be.

Incredibly frustrating that he started over Bird.

What message does that send to Bird? What does it send to our other youngsters?

'I will literally bring in another teams 18 year old, with no first team experience, who I haven't seen play, and start him over you'. That's the message.

In the after match presser Ardley basically said Bird wasn't committed during the week and didn't train anywhere hard enough. We don't see that side of it. We see the end result, but surely the build up is important as well?

In saying all that, the reports on the new lad weren't exactly glowing, so again this is where experience comes in. We need to sort out all these injuries rapido!

We can only hope he improves, his touch and passing seemed fine. Defensively he seemed awkward but he couldn't do much worse than what he did against Hartlepool at the weekend. It might just take time to settle, being a month long it makes you wonder if it's worth it?
