Guarding Against Crofts Burnout

It would have been quite easy to keep Andrew Crofts in the starting XI for Brighton on Saturday; in fact most would have expected this to be the case against Huddersfield?

Oscar Garcia however decided that the time was right to give the Welsh international a break.

A run of 18 successive starts, which have seen him playing 90-minutes constantly, came to an end with Oscar telling the Argus that he felt the time was right to give him a rest as he looks to prevent the influential midfielder from suffering a midseason burnout.

Games come thick and fast over the winter period, and not just over Christmas and the New Year, so I can appreciate where Oscar is coming from. It only takes one game too many being played for possible fatigue to result in an injury?

This is also why you have a squad isn't it. Having Kemy Agustien stepping in wasn't a bad replacement though was it?

Crofts is also another of those that is just a booking away from a one-match suspension.
