    We need him to cover Kouyte and Song if we loose Song now our season could go wrong ,we only have Collins at the moment to cover centre of defence with Kouyte out Burke does not have the expience at the moment,who is going to cover ( Nolan,Jarvis,Vaz Te,I don’t think so) if we want to give him playing time then start him on the bench ,if he had been there last weekend we could have given Kouyte a break with 20 mins to go and he may now been fit.
