Boss wants momentum to continue

4 December 2012

Despite admitting he is considering changes for Tuesday's Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie at Coventry City, Danny Wilson is adamant the competition deserves respect.

There is a ruling placed on the competition with regards to team selection and Wilson understands the reasoning behind the decision: "The rules dictate your team selection in a way, so the nucleus will remain very strong.

"You can understand the ruling in terms of sponsorship because the sponsors want their competition to be played with credibility. Of course they want to see some return for their investment, so I have no complaints with the rules, none at all, it just leaves you with a few problems.

"The competition is there to be won and we want to keep winning matches for a number of reasons, not least to keep the momentum going.

"It isn't everyone's cup of tea, but as it progresses it becomes quite prestigious and I am sure the fans feel the same.

"There is a Wembley final at the end of the road and no club is able to ignore the fact that it becomes financially beneficial. We take every competition seriously and the JPT is no different."

Looking at possible changes at the Ricoh Arena, Wilson concluded: "I will make a few changes, not just to have a look at the youngsters but with Saturday's trip to Carlisle in my mind.

"Certain players have played an awful lot of late and we need to make sure we are careful in some respects."
