Micky has confirmed that as expected he will go with his strongest side. Interestingly however, despite rumours that McCullough may join us permanently in January, Doncaster have not allowed him to play so as not to be cup tied....
I don't know the source/strength of the rumours that McCullough would be staying on. Donny fans rated him and were a bit surprised that he was loaned out. Another defensive central midfielder will be definitely needed if he does return to South Yorkshire.
Despite the noises made by Micky pre-match, I can still one or two changes on Saturday, although thosereturning from injury are more likely to get a run out in the midwee game at Northwich
I don't necessarily think a permanent move for McCullough is ruled out. Doncaster's own loanee from Peterborough is also cup-tied; if Donny sign him or somebody else permanently in January, Luke may be allowed to come to us.
However, if McCullough does go it will be a major loss and I will be gutted to be honest. Harris does not remotely offer the same qualities and we would need a replacement.
With £36k, £54k and £135k up for grabs for winers of rounds one, two and three we have to put a decent team out.
First thoughts were that Macca, Ollie, CJ and Nors would be benched. Now not sure!
Do think Harris will step in for McCullough though.
Looking forward to it. Got a pass out for early start in tent.
It's nice to be one of the the big boys against the minnows again!
Pretty sure we'll top 4k gate.
