    Agree on the injuries, didn't Croll pick up an injury against Yeovil?
    Isn't denzel right that we still have to play half the team that started yesterday ? Anyone able to cite the actual regulation?

    As usual the pathetic and useless EFL administration aren't up to the job of even making the rules available on their website. Under 'Competition Rules' on the website these on for ages and ages but at 7 it says

    'Each EFL club shall play its full available strength in and during all matches. The League will from time to time issue a policy as to what constitutes 'full available strength''

    No link to the current version. No statement about where to can find it.No indication of whether they make it up as they go along and can change it ,say, on this Tuesday afternoon.

    I thought this year's version was 'at least 5 outfield players who started the previous game'

    I agree about the poor EFL website navigation but it took 30 seconds on Google to find this:

    https://www.lutontown.co.uk/news/201...rophy-changes/

    Player Eligibility

    For EFL Clubs:
    •A Club can play any goalkeeper in the competition;
    •· The revised requirement of Rule 7.3 – ‘4 qualifying outfield Players from 10’.

    A qualifying outfield Player would be:

    Any Player that meets the current criteria (excluding Goalkeepers), includes those who:
    •Have started the previous or following first team fixture;
    •Are in the top 10 players at the club for starting appearances in league and domestic cup competitions for season;
    •Have made 40 or more first team appearances in their career;
    •Are on loan from either a Premier League or Category 1 Academy Club.


    Also

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/39895497

    "Third-tier and fourth-tier clubs are now able to choose any goalkeeper and only four starting outfield players now have to be "qualifying first-team players", while invited sides need to have six under-21 players in their starting line-up."

    So we can play almost all kids. The two WBA lads are eligible. Plus TAH and say Holmes or Simpson if fit and there you are.

    Thanks, JW. As you say we can basically do what we like with those rules and our current squad. I think there's quite a few knocking on the door, and also fringe players, who could do with the game time. For any automatic first choice player it would be part of 5 games in 15 days. I'd go

    Hamon
    Wilson TAH Croll Moxey
    Sparkes Byrne Boateng Edwards
    Jay McAlinden

    100% agree with this. Disagree with the competition but we are in it for better or worse, we might as well make the most out of it (to the tune of 10k per game) if we can.

    I really can't see why any club should be allowed to field an inferior team for any competion/cup, fans buy there ticket and often travel to support there team and should be shown the same level of support, I can obviously see why clubs would choose to do so but a season is base on more than just the league, unless they want to offer it for free.

    The prices are lower to reflect the nature of the game.
    £10 Adults; £8 Seniors/Young Adults; £5 under 18s
