We need everyone in the best condition we can, hopefully we’ll have more news for the Coventry game.

NT on Sam Hutchinson

There is speculation. We’ll see if we can get it sorted next week. We can’t comment on that and I won’t until it happens.

We’re hopeful we’ll have a few more back. We’re back in tomorrow, those that didn’t play and hopefully we’ll have a couple more a little further down the line.

But we have a duty of care to everybody to make sure they’re in the right condition.

He didn’t train a couple of days because of his shoulder. 

He’s not had a lot of football but has looked bright in training. He was blowing a bit of half-time but this was a good opportunity to show what he can do.

NT on the youngsters

It’s a big stage for them to come onto, playing against a top Premiership side. Hopefully we’ll have a bigger pool of players available for next week, but they did great.

You’ve got have eyes in the back of your head against Premier League players. They’ll have got a lot out of this. They trusted themselves and acted well as a unit.

NT on the goals conceded

It does disappoint you. Two set plays, wuality delivery, we knew this was the case, but we have to expect that.

NT on the performance

It was encouraging, the first half. We did well, we just needed to penetrate a bit more and have composure in the final third.

Second half we came out of the blocks a little slow. But encouraging all in.

Neil Thompson is here!

Here we go..

Don’t go anywhere!

We’ll be speaking to Neil Thompson.. and maybe Carlo Ancelotti.. shortly. Stay tuned.
