STUART McCall has stressed that everyone will have their role to play as City aim to build on a first win for nine games.

McCall made four changes for Tuesday’s comeback victory over Stevenage which has lifted morale around Valley Parade.

But recent recruit Glenn Middleton is still waiting to see the first action of his loan spell from Rangers.

Jamie Devitt and Zeli Ismail are also yet to feature since McCall returned to the hot-seat last week.

McCall said: “I know I’ve got disappointed players who didn’t get on and I’ve got disappointed ones in the stand.

“But that’s part of having a big squad. They’ve got to feel part of it and be ready to come on and be involved.

“Glenn’s obviously not had a lot of football and it’s the same with Zeli. I first remember him from Bury and I’ve watched a lot of clips.

“But I looked at the surface the other night and thought there were going to be high winds as well, if I’m honest.

“I didn’t think it would be a footballing game, although second half we were better when we realised we could show a bit more composure rather than ‘harem scarem’.

“Jamie Devitt is another good footballer who’s been out for so long. There are lads there with quality.

"I was looking to get Glenn on but the way the game went, I didn’t think it was right. It’s different scenarios at times.”

Shay McCartan, one of the four who came into the line-up, scored twice to inspire City’s second-half recovery to claim a first win since beating Morecambe on January 1.

Dylan Mottley-Henry, Kurtis Guthrie and Hope Akpan were also given their first starts under McCall.

McCall added: “Shay obviously took his opportunity and Dylan worked ever so hard and played the full game.

“With Kurtis, sometimes you find it difficult playing against your ex-team.

“Hope also came in and I’ve looked at his clips. He’s got a goal in him.

“We’re looking at people who can chip in for us, especially at home.

“It was a game we needed to win. If we’d have lost it, I think we’d have lost any buoyancy and momentum.

“We obviously wanted to get six points from the two home games but four was the minimum and thankfully we managed to get that.

“You’ve got to use that and build on it but also not get carried away.

“Job done, take confidence from it but now we look towards Cambridge on Saturday.”

The City boss will be hoping that Callum Cooke’s back calms down after the midfielder felt a twinge jogging on the artificial surface at Bradford university on Monday.

McCall said: “He just felt something at the bottom of his spine. I don’t think it’s anything serious.

“We’re hopeful for the weekend but we’ll have to see. These things can go as quickly as they come.”
