Two more in on loan
20th Nov, 2017 at 5:32pm
Two more have been brought in on loan with Nico Cotton returning from Southend and joined by youngster Dan Humphreys, also from Southend.


Will be interesting to see how these slot in, especially Cotton, if Dale continues with his fancied 3-5-2 formation.
Cotton may take the left wing-back role off Smith to give more pace down that side but his defensive qualities were found a little wanting when he was last with us. Two very positive signings though, along with Foy to boost numbers.

Cole, McAuley, Barker
Cotton, Borer, Fisk or Jarvis, Zielonka, Humphreys
Reed, Foy

Would allow Fisk and Jarvis to be rotated to preserve their fitness levels. Obviously with suspensions coming up though, Cole will likely be replaced by Leacock or Jarvis and Reed may be replaced by Bammant/Greenleaf. Or they may switch formation until suspensions are over.

Bring on tomorrow night. Will be a tough test for all and interesting to see how we line up.

Very positive vibes. Obviously Dale was not allowed to use his knowledge and contacts to bring in loan players when AG was at the rudder. Attack is the first line of defence and we know that Nico will attack. We will have to trust to good fortune when defending. How many games will Travis and Jake miss?

DB continues to shape his squad with these two captures. It's reassuring that we now have a more dynamic manager prepared to invest in youth, albeit loanees.

Good to see Cotton back and under the guidance of Brooksy I would expect the lad to flourish.

A straight replacement at right back.
Good news all round.

Excellent news - a shame somewhat its taken this long with the squad resource as it is but it is a case we have to let players go before we can bring some in, and the ones that have gone have gone on their own terms.

This news brings in renewed enthusiasm for the outcome of the next few games, still tempered somewhat by losing Travis and Jake through suspension, by with Foy up top its only a matter of time before he can find the net, he'll work well with Bammant if Bammo if he keeps himself injury free.

Roll on tomorrow night!!
