The simple fact for me is that we look weaker every time we put Naughton in the back three. I think I said at some point yesterday we should play Bennett, Guehi and Cabango as our starting back 3 and not rotate it unless we have an injury. These players should be able to come through two games in a week without needing constant rest.

We miss Smith in the middle which suggests we have to play 3 of these 5 - Smith, Fulton, Grimes, Hourihane and Dhanda.
I agree Phil - I like Kylie as a player, and especially venturing forward. Always a mistake in him in defence I feel.

The defence is a unit, more about organisation than anywhere else on the pitch. Subbing Bennett at HT was risky no matter how off the pace he was - 15 mins at HT is not enough to go through exactly who does what and when IMHO. Hindsight and all that!

Bennett had a calf injury though so surely it would have been far more risky keeping him on ?

Ah apologies - my bad, thought it was a tactical change.

Edit: begs the question I suppose - was he fully fit going into the game.
