Changes for Tuesday?

Was noticeable how the defence wasn't really troubled yesterday but I would have thought Charlton will be a sterner test and so do you change things there? Whilst Ward was better, I think I'd try a different option and whilst Williams gave us a bit more protection at the back, do we want to be on the front foot at home?

I think Williams lets the attacking midfielders play with more freedom, so I'd leave him in. (Or play Kenny Dougall) if he's fit.

The more you trust what's happening behind you, the more likely you are to take risks going forward and do things like get up and around Madine or try a first time pass.

I think there might be a couple of changes in the defence with husband going to left back and maybe ballard or the iceman in at centre half,if garbutt is out

I’d possibly go with the same squad that ended that match - however I’d also be very tempted to play Husband at LB with Ballard stepping into the CB role as Charlton will be a bigger threat offensively and despite him scoring I’d switch Ward with Woodburn (if fit and good to go) as Ward doesn’t influence the attacking third enough for me and the one time he did venture into the box he scored. Woodburn will hopefully provide that presence and threat for 90 minutes.
Yates needs to be told to stay more central too.

Worried that our midfield will be up against Marcus Maddison. Hopefully he is not yet up to speed, but he has the ability to pick holes in our midfield and defence

I know we have obvious problems still to resolve, but with confidence a little fragile I'm not sure I'd be making any wholesale changes to a side that totally dominated the last game. If you watched it, you'll have seen that actually it took an excellent move from Crewe to score against us.

I think with all the chopping and changing to the squad, now is the time for the team to settle down a bit, and only gradually introduce new players. I would start Husband at left back with one of the new centre half's in and keep the rest the same. I'd bring on Woodburn on late on to give him some game time against a tiring defence, but that's as far as I'd go for now. Part of our problem when going forward is that the players aren't on the same wavelength and that's only going to be remedied by making sure new player are introduced gradually. Not by chucking in players who've barely had chance to say hello to their teammates.

Another balanced post , I would tend to agree with what your saying, to many changes would probably put a fly in the ointment so to speak !

Sounds a bit like Gretarsson and Dougall won't be ready but Woodburn and Ballard will.
The problem replacing Hubby with Ballard is that we won't have a leftie CB.
Ballard in with Husband moving to left back. Woodburn in for Yates to give us a sharper presence up front. I don't know much about Charlton and how they line up so stick with Madine for now but Sarkic should be given a chance at some point.

I'll be stunned if the team that starts isnt the one that finished on Saturday.

Kaikai and Woodburn to come in on the bench and give real decent attacking options if required.

A change of tactics rather than players for me, teams have sussed out CJ Hamilton and always had 2 men upon him I would pl;ay him closer to Madine as a second striker.
If this is the case it’s high time we overcame that problem as surely there a gap somewhere else on the pitch. If teams want to double up on CJ then let’s exploit there space.

Woodburn has been playing u23 games so should be fit enough for part of a game at least.
Ward's spot is probably safe for now after his improved performance and goal, so unless Woodburn replaces Yates on the left I think he'll be on the bench.
Did Critch say Anderson will miss a few games? Sometimes it is little querks like a certain player being injured that forces a change and improvements then happen.
