Solly to be blooded against Rams?

Phil Parkinson has included Chris Solly in his squad for the trip to Derby County tomorrow, insisting he would have 'no qualms' about throwing the youngster in for his Addicks debut. Right-back Solly, who signed a professional deal until 2010 last summer, has shone for the reserves this term and Parkinson admitted recently that the starlet had been unlucky not to be involved in his first XI.

After Matt Holland was ruled out for the last two games of the season with a knee injury, Solly could now earn a place on the substitutes' bench for the clash at Pride Park. Perhaps he even might get some time on the pitch.

The shell shocked supremo also revealed that he had been talking to the players about concentrating and keeping possession when they were tired and not giving away unnecessary free kicks which have created dangerous situations in recent matches.

If Parky has 'no qualms' about blooding Solly, I have to wonder why he has continued to select Butterfield?
Mind you,any questioning of his decisions may well soon be moot.

About time, he will do well if given the chance.
