OK, but 24 hours before an away game? Seems mental to me.
They apparently train at match intensity so perhaps it's not all that different (which somewhat negates my original point on necessity).
Yeah, I raised an eyebrow too but we have options for the bench and it seems almost certain we'll be unchanged. Only 1 of Forshaw and Baker needed to get through ok with Shackleton in reserve. Only Dallas or (both) Clarke/Pearce to have wing and full back cover. We didn't have a striker on the bench at Wednesday anyway. Not sure the risks are all that great and, having not watched it, can only assume anyone who played 90 minutes today will not be involved tomorrow at all.
The risk is fairly minimal, the reward may be 1 or 2 better prepared to step in on Saturday.
