If he improved defensively then he has a chance. I think the window of opportunity hasn't been very open for him unfortunately and there are stronger talents coming up behind him. I'm intrigued to see how he does in the Championship though, he's shown himself to be pretty competent so far at that level.
Mark McGuinness also played the entire game for Ipswich too, as did Harry Clarke for Oldham. James Olayinka scored arguably the goal of the round for Southend (they still got knocked out).Matt Smith played 90 minutes in Swindon’s FA Cup first round against Darlington on the weekend. Had an up and down game, lost the ball a couple of times in poor areas which led to big chances.
Started a lot of Swindon’s good moves though like in the below goal.
As for Jordi Osei-Tutu he’s going to be out until a few weeks after the international break with a hamstring injury.
John-Jules has been back at Colney recently as he tries to recover from an injury as well.
Dan Ballard missed Blackpool’s FA cup game through suspension and annoyingly Zech Medley was on the bench throughout for Gillingham.
They’ve got a really good young CB called Jack Tucker there and with another young CB in Declan Drysdale there’s a lot of competition for places there.
