With Dean Saunders looking to clear out his squad, it’s perfectly understandable for our minds to wander to who’s in favour and who isn’t. Well there’s one player who must be very concerned after the Altrincham game.
Will Sam Aiston already be mentally packing his bags?
Think about it. I suspect an awful lot of fans, if asked who they suspect Saunders will be looking to offload, would suggest Christian Smith. Yet with Wes Baynes suspended last Tuesday, Saunders played Smith out of position rather than select Aiston, a natural winger. Of course if it didn’t work out he’d have Aiston on the bench wouldn’t he? Well, no actually.
Aiston’s an honest worker whose direct style can force sides back, buthis lack of end product might just count decisively against him in Saunders’ mind.
