Lee Johnson is prepared to take a fine due to EFL regulations ahead of the Papa John's Trophy fixture against Manchester United Under-21s.
"It's something we can do without, and we'd probably have to take the hit (of a fine) and play young players against Man United because we will have a lot of players away, depending on who is called up on international duty. It's a bit of a perfect storm in terms of that."
"I see it as a really good opportunity for some of the under-23s who have been performing quite well."
"You know the rules, you get fined if you don't play four (qualifying players) - which is ridiculous, I think. Manchester United and the Premier League fund the competition and therefore they tend to get preferential treatment, which is crazy because we are the ones with all the games."
"They (United) have demanded that it be played on Wednesday the 13th, so we may potentially have to pay the fine which doesn't seem fair to me."
"At the end of the day, the big picture is Gareth Southgate having more players to select from, and if you can't expose players and give young players a chance in games like that, it has a negative effect."
