Blues Much-Changed at Preston
Tuesday, 14th Jan 2014 19:02

Mick McCarthy has named the expected much-changed side for this evening’s FA Cup third round replay at Preston.

Scott Loach starts in goal, Carlos Edwards at right-back, Tyrone Mings at left-back with Tommy Smith and Christophe Berra at the centre of the defence.

McCarthy looks likely to field a three-man midfield of Luke Hyam, Jay Tabb and Ryan Tunnicliffe and a frontline of Frank Nouble with Paul Anderson on his right and Stephen Hunt on his left.

Academy scholars Byron Lawrence, Kyle Hammond and Matt Clarke on the bench, alongside veteran frontman Alan Lee. Preston make seven changes.

Town: Loach, Edwards, Berra, Smith, Mings, Anderson, Hunt, Tabb, Hyam, Tunnicliffe, Nouble. Subs: Gerken, Hammond, M Clarke, Lawrence, Lee, Taylor, McGoldrick.

Preston: Rudd, Keane, Laird, Huntington, Clarke, Humphrey, Kilkenny, Hayhurst, Gallagher, Davies, Brownhill. Subs: Stuckmann, Wright, Beavon, Holmes, Byrom, Garner, Hume.

Time for Nouble to shine?

Sorry but could not care less if we win or not. Shame for the 150 or so who have gone all the way up there but the league is more important even if I don't think we will get into the playoffs.

Surprised not to see Taylor out there. His quality could show up, certainly against a 'weaker' opposition

StuartBrett8 added 19:10 - Jan 14
strength from the bench... Did's and Taylor to come on if required

cannot see goals from that line up!

Floridaboy, you can't call yourself a fan if you don't care if we win or lose. A real fan wants their team to win every game no matter what the situation. COYB!

Tend to agree northern blues cant see who's gonna score for us. Berra or Smith perhaps. Hope i'm wrong 'cos i love the cup.

No goalscoring abilitiy in the starting line up. The absentees because of "injury" are questionable as regards veracity but understandable relative to being fresh for the Millwall game.

Expect a clear defeat - 2-0

Yuck - not enjoying the look of that line-up!

muccletonjoe added 19:50 - Jan 14
Key to this game. One name - Nouble

irishtim added 19:52 - Jan 14
Hunt to score. Town 1-0

intercept12 added 19:53 - Jan 14
I think the front 3 have scored fewer than our 2 centre-backs (who have admittedly started more), so it is indeed their time to shine.

thebeat added 19:57 - Jan 14
Dont understand why Taylor hasnt started. Mick has said he needs games to get his match fitness back.
This is the perfect opportunity to get some game time

battyblue added 20:46 - Jan 14
Noble again Alan Lee would have been better or anyone come to that,,now watch him score the winner with a header (we wish)

battyblue added 21:40 - Jan 14
Thats what you call an impact sub Mick three goals in twenty minutes

bluefeast added 21:49 - Jan 14
