Andrea Orlandi and Will Buckley are two that probably wouldn’t have been in Oscar’s starting line up against Hull tonight but injury has forced his hand.

Orlandi picked up a swollen ankle against Wigan in the weekend defeat and that will see him left out by Albion’s head coach, he probably wouldn’t have started him anyway. Buckley is being eased back from his hamstring injury and having been concerned in the original tie he’ll be left out after playing half an hour on Saturday.

Being the FA cup it’ll be all change for Albion again and Stephen Ward has backed the head coach for doing this during our cup run to date even if he’ll be one of the players that makes way tonight.

In spite of the rotation policy, which is Oscar’s way, he does want to see us march on in the cup and has been quoted in a national daily as saying that if we can win the FA cup it’ll be his ‘greatest achievement’ in football.

I think it would be fair to say he’d be right.
