¿Contexto?

Para algo como:

... para que no tengan la sensación de estar de sobra.

Yo diría:

... so that they do not feel the odd one out.

Pero no sé si es ese tipo de contexto, o algo como "you will be spared" (o sea, "tú estarás de sobra...", porque ya tenemos más jugadores suplentes en el banquillo...)

Ya nos dirás.

Saludos cordiales.

Creo que es el primero, cuando estamos en un grupo y te da la sensación de que estas de sobre, porque nadie te hace caso.
