For me he's ok defensively but lacks quality with the ball. Once he gets by the halfway line it's like he has no idea. He's been steady for us but unspectacular going forward which is where full backs catch the eye. He was though an upgrade on what we had previously which was not a lot. Carrington is far better in this position but does he really want to play right back?

Given Carrington's extreme defensive/negative displays when in midfield better concentrating on RB where he is better than Roberts to be fair.
A midfield trio of Walker/Young/Wright or Walker/Carrington/Young are both equally worrying for Saturday.

I have to disagree on this one. Carra is sound, a good first touch and is a goid all round footballer but Roberts is a better right back. Our best back 4 record last season was outstanding (KR MS SP JJ) and this season when KR JL SP JJ have started we have lost only 3 games and not many draws, which is title winning form. Roberts may have been a bit off form recently but so as everyone else, but he is better in the air, a better tackler, reads the game better but like our 3 full backs has to use his experience to make up for their lack of pace when confronted by a really quick wingers.

Since Carra has proved he can do a good stand in job at left back, I'm always relaxed with him starting at right back but why would we change some thing that has proved to work, other than all 3 full backs do seem to be picking up knocks. It must give great confidence to the rest of the team to have a solid back 4 behind them.

FWIW, I think Roberts is a better CB than RB - he just isn’t very good at attacking. I also think Carrington is a better RB than Roberts but again is limited when attacking.
