'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Captain Clark Pleased With Second String

Ciaran Clark has praised the second string for their 3-0 victory over a very experienced Wolves reserve side last night.

Speaking on the Official Site after a well earnt rest, Clark was very proud to captain the side (as ever) but especially as the opponents had a team full of Premiership experience.

The wolves squad contained 6 players who figured in our earlier first team draw, and the remaining 6 had all figured in the Premiership this season. I'm not sure how accurate it is, but it must come close that basically half the team are regular matchday squadies.

In comparison we had Bouma, Davies and Salifou on show as our experienced lads and as we know 2 of those are woefully short of fitness owing to injury.

'I think all of their 11 had played competitive first team football so it was a great chance for the lads to show what we can do and I thought we did that.'

Ciaran goes on to state that he believes the second string have a fantastic squad and it's hard to disagree, you take out those you think would make the difference like Bannan, Albrighton, Delfouneso etc and somebody else just steps up to the plate - very often a lad who's been promoted from the youth team. And the wins just keep on coming, afterall, the reserves haven't lost a league game this season, if any game this season.

The win puts the second string back to the top of the table and we still have a game in hand on nearest challengers Arsenal.

It's looking likely to be another successful season for them.

I wouldn't suggest we do it as it would be too much of a gamble, but that team would probably beat palace!

That's a bit disrespectful Longman given we couldn't even beat them with arguably our strongest line up (bar Gabby) last week...

To be fair though YatesyVillain it could be considered to be a bad day at the office for the boys. We don't expect anything other than a win in the replay do we? If we can't be confident of beating Palace at home then im afraid winning the League Cup Final against the Champions is a pipe dream! I would like to see players rested against Burnley and for us to go full throttle for 2 trophies. 4th place would be nice but if we're honest we'll admit that we're not ready. Lets put some silverware in the cabinet.
