Town boss Paul Jewell has named his expected strongest available side for tonight's Capital One Cup first round tie against Bristol Rovers at Portman Road.

The Blues appear likely to be lining up 4-4-2 with Jason Scotland up front alongside Michael Chopra.

Bristol Rovers include Chelsea keeper Sam Walker, who signed on loan today, who played for Northampton at Portman Road in the Carling Cup last year and is a Town supporter. Full match preview here.

Town: Loach, Edwards, Chambers, Smith, Cresswell, Hyam, Luongo, Emmanuel-Thomas, Martin, Scotland, Chopra. Subs: Lee-Barrett, Whight, Ainsley, Lawrence, Stevenson, Burke, Ellington.

Bristol Rovers: Walker, Smith, Paterson, Clarkson, Gill, Harrold, Brown, Norburn, Anyisah, Virgo, Brown. Harding, Gough, Staley, Clarke, Clucas, Lund.

Disappointed Bryon hasn't been given a shot though. Seemed an ideal opportunity.

Have to admit, whenever I hear that we are playing 4-4-2, I feel like shouting 'Hurrah! Sense prevails!' I honestly don't know why we don't play this formation like the days of old instead of fiddling around with the sort of 'creative' variations that you see in football at the European level. The teams that have gotten promoted from the Championship in recent years have more often than not stuck to a good old English 4-4-2, and I'd rather we found a way to make that formation work for us too.

COYB. Let's score a few, with a JET screamer in the back of the net and not hitting the bar. 3-1

Sooo shocked were losing 1-0, hows the team performing? And was their goal against the run of play??

1-1 now , scotland with another curler like west ham , , i have always said scotland is good and strongly believe he would smash it if he played every game

The goal was against the run of play, although we are not playing as well as we did against West Ham. Their goal was pretty amazing. The right back curled one over loach from 30 odd yards out. Half time 1-1. COYB!!!
