I'm glad Parkinson is the manager.

Whilst I agree we do need more quality options in midfield (an upgrade on Young basically), the midfield as they are are slowly improving as they play together more and the entire team becomes more familiar with the system they are playing- I dont think we are going to get a more traditional defensive midfielder because I don't see how the system we are playing uses one. Someone sitting in front of the defence would make the team far too static.

The problem we will have tomorrow is if Davies is injured with Jones suspended as I'm not sure about Jarvis or Redmond playing his role.
I think McIlinden will start if necessary, he deserves a chance and is more up to speed than Jarvis & Redmond but there's no point them being at the club if either of them can't come in and play in Davies's role. I can't see PP changing his formation anytime soon to accommodate players.

If there is a forced change then there will be a concern, particularly as we are still work in progress with a number of players not yet hitting top form, but if we are to be successful in the league, the strength of the squad will be the deciding factor
