Jones' confidence is completely shot at the moment, not sure playing him right wing back would help him.

Bit over the top that. Confidence completely shot after one bad game? He looked alright yesterday.

Not one bad game for me, the Bradford game as well as Walsall, he was miles off it and if Martin had played like that, imagine some of the stick he would have received on here.  I am a big fan of Jones and he will play an important part througout the season but for me for around a month he has been struggling.

We can watch this on ifollow .

Will be tuning in hope the squad players stake there claim to be in team for Saturdays F.A cup encounter .

I feel we could easily win both of these games this week as we have a squad of players who can net and while you have that anything is possible as goals give confidence 

Good luck to the Vale embrace these games against excellent league one opposition.

With having no strikers, I might be tempted to play 541, at least at the start.

Try and shut up shop. Grab a goal from a dead ball situation or win on penoes. Something like:

                                 Stone

Cass.      Martin.        Legge.         Johnson.        Amos

                                Walker

               Garrity.                       Burgess

                               Taylor 

                            Amoo

 

Or something like that?

Gets a bit of match fitness into some legs. Reduces the risk of injuries in others.

Think that this is an extremely difficult match.

Would be focusing on try to get to 3rd round of F A Cup and a potentially big money game than risking 1st team players.

Bare in mind we have a league fixture next Tuesday as well.

Also, I didn’t think that it looked a bad side!

Not a bad shout.  To some extent it’s who we dare we risk, Garrity and Amoo maybe Conlon?  I’d give Rod some more minutes.

Jones had a shocker against Walsall and got dropped. Came on yesterday, and injected some much needed energy. 

Good attitude. He’ll do for me

He did well when he came on especially as pretty much his first taste of action was to take a throw in which he proceeded to throw straight out.

Maybe completely left field and an odd shout here, but has Walker ever played / can he play at CB? If we’re going to stick with 352 every game (which it seems we will) I can’t help but think our extra defender is usually wasted, someone like Johnson pushing forwards. I think Walker is a great player with a range of passing but don’t think we could leave out Pett, Conlon or garrity. No idea if he could fit in at CB in a back 3 but something I think could work. 
 

Change it as much as we can for tomorrow, not fussed with the result, hope to maybe see some of the young lads get a go off the bench

He can. It was his main position for Crewe.

Use science to assess the players …. Unless a player is showing signs of fatigue and a resultant increased risk of injury then play a strong team and let’s see if we can progress … there’s always the option of easing back in training. 

Those bra things they wear house a GPS which monitors their runs - intensity, speed, where on the pitch and when they’re making the runs too. It all gets analysed.

I’d look to get out of this competition and rest as many first team players as possible. We’re wobbling in the league and need to stabilise our position and regain our position in the top three. Is there still that rule in force where you’ve got to play a certain number of players that played in the game against Hartlepool.?
