Well, I want to say that every little helps.

And based on what the bench looked like in the game against West Brom (the squad numbers alone should tell you how desperate things were), we need all the help we can get going into the final weeks of the season, even if the substitution rules have changed.

And speaking of rule changes, the EFL implemented a new one yesterday. They announced (via the club website) that players that were loaned out on Standard and International Loans who have returned to their parent side are eligible for them again.

Previously players were registered with their loan club for the duration of the loan, whether six months or 12 months.

That means that Odin Bailey, Charlie Lakin and Josh Cogley are now going to be eligible for the last few weeks of the season, which is something that I am obviously delighted about. The more young players that get given a few minutes in the first-team, the better.

Should the club be using the youngsters in the latter stages of the season?





And that sentiment was clearly felt amongst the fans on social media as well.

What about you? What do you make of this new ruling?
