I've actually just realised that we can't even do that. Our U23s have three games that week themselves!We had 6 shots on target and scored 5 goals. Not a bad hit rate. Their keeper was absolutely hopeless.
This is unlikely given the fuss JK has made about rearranging the date but agree this is the most sensible thing to do. We are just delaying the inevitable in this competition by deferring the date. Are we really going to play a team much stronger than the one you've listed here regardless of when it's played? The congestion in January (when we traditionally have a dip in form anyway) is going to be horrendous and even then if we got through against Villa there's a 2 legged semi final to play which will probably be against City or United. I want to see us win things but you have to be realistic about it. We just don't have the squad to cover every competition, not this season anyway.
