Full backs

With all our fullbacks injured who plays against Bournmouth. I really don’t want Nelson to be moved from centre back. Does it mean we play with 3 at the back?

We have to adapt. Ralls has played at left-back and Bacuna can do right back. Also there is the new signing who has been known to cover at full-back apparently.

I’m hoping Joel Bagan has a chance. But Harris did say Bennett should be fit this week in his post match presser (not sky sports one) but Bournemouth may come a bit to soon. Bacuna could cover the RB, although I thought Nelson was superb there for the short period he was today.

I would say its likely looking at today that Harris would play Bacuna in that position if both are unfit

Tutu looking a lot more relaxed and confident on the other side but I worry at his age that he can play the whole season

Very surprised we didn't manage to get Sanderson. Despite right back being our problem position for a season or two we are still no better off numbers wise. I know Bacuna and Nelson can cover there but I would like us to have signed a recognised right back. Perhaps we'll snap up a free agent. There must be a few around in this climate.

I think we looked good today but with a massive amount of fixtures coming up I think we need two or three more bodies.

My only hope is that if both fullbacks are out and Nelson slots in to RB he doesn’t play Bamba in central defence :o

New lad will play CB. Probably just wanted to hold him back so he can work on a relationship with the others defenders.
