Carson and Lee-Barrett Start
Saturday, 19th Mar 2011 14:34
Boss Paul Jewell has handed 17-year-old Northern Ireland U21 international Josh Carson his Blues debut against Scunthorpe this afternoon and brought Arran Lee-Barrett into the side for the first time under his management, as reported by TWTD this morning.
Skipper David Norris is also back in the team, while Colin Healy is on the bench having returned from his stomach muscle injury, but Kieron Dyer is missing from the 18, with rumours yesterday suggesting that the loanee from West Ham has picked up an injury. Márton Fülöp, Jason Scotland and Tamás Priskin all drop to the bench.
Town: Lee-Barrett, Edwards, Kennedy, McAuley, Delaney, Leadbitter, Carson, Norris (c), Wickham, Martin, Bullard. Subs: Fülöp, Peters, Scotland, Priskin, Drury, Healy, O'Dea.
Scunthorpe: Lillis, Gordon, O'Connor, Nelson (c), Mirfin, J Wright, Hughes, Nolan, Duffy, Miller, Garner. Subs: Slocombe, Togwell, Dagnall, Raynes, Grant, Collins, Reid.

The long, slow decline in Town’s fortunes since we became part of the mysterious and opaque ‘Marcus Evans Business Empire’ has been both hugely depressing and acutely embarrassing. But if we’re honest, Town’s decline pre-dates the much-maligned Marcus Evans’s arrival by decades. Both on and off the pitch.
