I can see possible value to the Premiership sides in being in the competition but it devalues the thing for L1 and L2 clubs.
The Man City coach was waxing lyrical about the benefit of Tuesday’s game for them although I find it hard to see what bendfit they get from playing against virtually an under 21 Scunthorpe side in an emptyish stadium that they don’t get in the Premiership U 21 League.
I totally support Cox playing the kids rather than risking further injuries to first team players at this stage of the season but it makes a mockery of the competition and little wonder fans don’t bother turning up.
