I was absolutely delighted for Chris but now it&rsquo&#59;s about games and fitness for him.&rdquo&#59;<P class=MsoNormal>Hughton is delighted to be able to field such a young side but knows that first-team requirements always come first.<P class=MsoNormal>He added: &ldquo&#59;If you spoke to most reserve team coaches they would say the same &mdash&#59; that it is possibly more beneficial for the development of the club to play a young side and the better of the YTS lads, players that have showed real promise and deserved to get into the group.<P class=MsoNormal>&ldquo&#59;But it&rsquo&#59;s no different here than anywhere else &mdash&#59; the most important team is the first team and what we have to so is service the first team.
