SWINDON Supermarine manager Lee Spalding revealed he will ring the changes in tonight’s Southern League Cup fixture against Cinderford Town at the Webbswood Stadium.

Marine face a short turnaround from their league business, but Spalding said this latest cup fixture can serve as a worthwhile exercise for those in need of valuable minutes.

Players such as Jamie Edge, who missed Saturday’s win over Hendon through suspension, and recent substitute Henry Spalding might be given an opportunity.

Spalding said: “It’s about using the squad really and giving game time to players who haven’t played for the last few games.

“We want to get minutes into their legs, and then we’ve got a couple of lads who are coming back from injury or suspension.

“So it’s a great opportunity to use the squad and give players on the bench an opportunity to start a game and show what they can do.”

Spalding described the three-day turnaround as ‘difficult’ as semi-professional players cannot afford the opportunity to take a day off work so that a full day of training can be fitted in.

He added: “The quick turnaround is difficult.

“It doesn’t give us much chance to go through certain aspects like opposition insight or set pieces, we can only have a quick talk.”
