Michael O’Neill looks like juggling his team around again at Luton Town tomorrow.
It’s the end of a three-game week, which will leave him looking to freshen things up anyway, and then there is the form of certain players after the midweek draw at Blackburn.
Collins barely put a foot wrong, if at all, and certainly did enough to warrant keeping his place under normal circumstances.
But O’Neill has leant towards experience at the back during his four months in charge and you suspect that he might just go that way again at Kenilworth Road by recalling Chester after his midweek break.
It would he harsh on Collins, but his day will come.
In midfield, meanwhile, Jordan Thompson has done remarkably well in the holding midfield role he was handed in the last two games and he takes his fair slice of credit for the two subsequent clean sheets against Cardiff and Blackburn.
He was replaced late on at Blackburn by Jordan Cousins and you just wonder if O’Neill might start that way at Luton.
He will be taking a rain check on Thompson’s ability to start a third game in a week, while he might prefer the more robust defensive qualities of Cousins in the hurly burly of this relegation clash against a Luton side that like to move the ball quickly.
And finally, what to do with Tyrese Campbell up front?
It wasn’t one of his better games at Blackburn on Wednesday and it would be easy to jump to the conclusion he looked a little jaded and therefore needs a break this weekend.
In the long-term, that might not be the worst idea, but who to replace him with?
Lee Gregory came on at Blackburn, but looked understandably rusty, and hasn’t been a favourite of O’Neill when it comes to starting.
So it might be Sam Vokes to whom O’Neill turns this weekend.
And not for the first time either.
