Weston doubt as City rotate

Last updated : 11 August 2003 By Michael Morris
Rhys was replaced on 57 mins by James Collins. The Wales international limped off with an ankle injury and is unlikely to take part in the game against Orient.

Collins is likely to start the game v Orient along with the other 4 subs from Rotherham. That will mean starting places for Martyn Margetson, Gareth Whalley, Jason Bowen and a chance for Layton Maxwell to take centre stage after some good pre season performances.

Stuart Fleetwood could also get a chance after being 17th man at Rotherham.

City are still stretched as far as the squad is concerned. Injuries are not helping. Of 23 numbered first team squad members 16 were on duty at Rotherham. Stuart Fleetwood makes 17 and Aaran Lee Barrett, the 3rd choice keeper makes 18.

The other 5 players in the squad are all injured. Peter Thorne, Gary Croft, Scott Young, Spencer Prior and Gavin Gordon.

Either Lennie will bring in more youth players or we will see Fleetwood join the squad in place of Weston and possible see upto 6 changes with those rested being on the bench. More accurate news should come through Tuesday but Lennie has confiirmed the subs from Saturday will start the game.
