Declan Rice looks booked for his second start for the Irons at Cheltenham Town tomorrow evening in the League Cup clash.
But hopes that young Nathan Holland may get his chance along wth Toni Martinez appear to have been ruled out by their involvement in the under 23s victory over Spurs yesterday.
Manager Slaven Bilic knows he faces a must win clash – althoug the Sky cameras at the match suggest the broadcaster may be smelling blood!
With speculation already on the rise about Bilic’s position anything other than a convincinr the League Two team will cause increasing serious speculation.
He will of course ring the changes and among those who are likely to get their first run out of the season are Adrian, Byram and Collins.
And this maybe an opportunity to start Sakho who would find this a useful game to increase his match fitness whilst Antonio too could benefit from another game before the weekend.
This could well be the team Bilic puts out: Adrian; Byram, Rice, Collins, Cresswell; Antonio, Fernandes, Obiang, Ayew, Hernandez, Sakho.
Cheltenham were beaten 3-0 at Carlisle on Saturday and are currently sitting 20th in the division just five places off the bottom.
