With that in mind, can see the logic in giving Turnbull (who didn't play Sat) and Bell (didn't play Sat & returning from injury) some game time. Maybe Cowan and Baines too if they're on the bench Sat and unlikely to be used. Kirby took a knock Tues and Osborne has played a fair bit of late so no need to top up their game time.
All of Sat's starters I would rest, especially given the recent run of tough fixtures.
Dux - I have no idea, especially as he's returning from injury. My only possible reasoning for Mulhern and Matty is that Jim wants them to get a goal or two to boost their confidence. Although based on Jim's post match comments, I can see Osborne starting ahead of Warby on Sat...
Asa more general point, Nantwich are a decent side (play-offs league below), so maybe Jim as strengthened as another defeat wouldn't be good for our or the young lads' confidence (or is eyeing up the treble...).
