The subs bench on Saturday of Mott, Anderson. Purcell, Ekoku and Sodge highlights our lack of defensive depth.

The way I read it we currently have:

1 right back Ricketts

1 left back Opinel

3 centre backs Macca, Smith & Smith

1 utility man Hawkins


Five of those are in the starting line-up so with everyone fit we only have one defensive sub.

With one out injured we can just about cope, with two out or a suspension we would be struggling.

If any of the back three had been injured on Saturday the only option I could see would be to either drop Quinn back and bring on Anderson on the right and move Ricketts to the holding position or to change formation. Either choice would be more changes than you would want to make in the middle of a match.

I think we need another defender.
