Surely younger players need to be playing...?

Starting tonight we had one 17-year-old Dobbin, two 18-year-olds Astley and Hughes, 19-year-old Einar Iversen, plus on the bench two 17-year-olds, Leban a goalkeeper and Liam Higgins, midfield. That's the most young players we've had in a squad at this stage of the season since we changed up to U23s. And it'll get younger.

It's hard to tell how they played given there was a storm blowing but the reports talk of a good dinked goal from Broadhead and a driving run from midfield by Iversen, a rarity at 1st team level these days.

However, a team with the experience we have out there should be able to beat Chorley. Baningime and Adeniran should be controlling these games if they have any chance of the first team while Broadhead, Pennington and Connolly have all proven themselves at Championship level – so should be putting up better results than this.

Is that "should of said "beat Chorley comfortably" " because they actually did or the team that was put out should have done so?
