Now is not the time for pilling to be “tested” out, if he were good enough MM would have had no question or doubt in saying he will play and he’s likely would not be here. What player is going to warm the bench when he will get a game elsewhere.
It’s the most important posistion on the pitch without question, you can get away with bedding a youngster in outfield as there are others around to pick up the slack and talk the player through the game, not so in goal you need to be the finished article from the whistle because mistakes result in goals.

Don’t forget he’s had an appearance this season in the cup to show his talents.

I don’t rate Davies as highly as some on here either, I think his injury will prove to have a silver lining in the form of an improvement between the sticks.

He wouldn't be ''tested out'' as you put it. He IS IMO good enough. The match at Solihull on the Monday night when hardly anyone else could be bothered is not a good example.

Take your point but Fylde wasn’t a good example either? Thing with a keeper is they are not actually reliant on those around being interested, if anything that’s a positive for them as they will get plenty of chances to show off. Pickford played for the worst team around last season, he still showed how good he was and has done thus far at Everton.

It will all unfold over the coming weeks, he may well get the nod.

Indeed it will unfold. Coming on when you're 3-0 down and the opposition are full of confidence is never ''a good example'' We shall see.
