Barry Corr wants some of those on the fringes of Cambridge United’s first team to seize the opportunity in the Papa John’s Trophy, second round clash with Walsall at the Abbey Stadium tomorrow (kick off 7pm).
It has been an unforgiving schedule for the U’s, with two matches a week for the best part of the last two months.
With that in mind, there is likely to be widespread changes for the league trophy match against the League One side.
“I think there are going to be changes in the team, and that’s probably a by-product of the run that we’ve been on,” said Corr, the U’s first-team coach.
“We’re looking forward to it. We want to get through to the next round. It is a nice little break from the league, because it’s been a challenging past few weeks to be fair.
“It’s a different mentality, it’s a cup game so it’s exciting in that sense. It’s knockout football which is always a little bit exciting. We see what it can do to a game of football when there has to be an outcome at the end of it.
“We see the next round in sight and we would like to progress as far as we can.”
United earned a home draw in the second round by virtue of topping Group H, which included Spurs under-21s, Stevenage and Oxford United.
Walsall qualified for the second round of the EFL Trophy after finishing second in Southern Group D, behind Forest Green Rovers in a group that also featured Brighton & Hove Albion under-21s and Northampton Town.

The Saddlers are currently 14th in League Two, with six matches and six draws from their 19 games, and they are managed by Matty Taylor.
“He’s brought in a lot of new players, and that obviously takes time to get everybody used to each other, and the players to get used to his ways.
“I think they’ve had a reasonably good start, and I’m sure they’re probably looking at the play-offs in front of them and thinking that’s a realistic target for them in the new year.”
