Impossible to read anything much in to a 5 minute cameo against an already beaten lower league team.
He looked fine, but really none the wiser as to whether he's going to make it.
Agreed but given how cautious Ancelotti has been in using Gordon, it's a little indicator that he thinks both young lads who came on are talented and have a bright future.
I think also it's a smart move to do it in a game that done and dusted. It lets all the academy lads know there might be a route to the first team if they work hard and are good enough, and lets a few fringe first team lads know they maybe have to pull their socks up a bit. Really good management.
