Snodgrass and Onamah lucky to be starting, Hogan lucky to be on the coach.

Not really as that's pretty much every fit first team squad player we have, so not exactly a lot of other options.

Seems very defensive against a team with an injury crisis at the back. If we don't win, I'll be unimpressed with these tactics, particularly given how much better we were once we switched to two forwards on Sunday.

Why he doesn't give Hogan a start alongside Davis is beyond me. What's he got to lose!!

Bench is really starting to annoy me. If the same attacking players underperform as on the weekend, what's the plan?

You're worried about Plan B? Care to explain Plan A.

He has to keep pretending that Hogan can play football by putting him on the bench.

It's all well and good saying he should be doing XYZ but it's easier said than done when pretty much no other attacking option is fit. I'm no Bruce fan but not sure what else he could do apart from start Hogan which then leaves us zero attacking options to change things if they aren't working, apart from sticking Samba up front.

He can. Just not in the way we are set up.
