Anderson and Hunt Return at Huddersfield
Tuesday, 8th Apr 2014 18:56
Town boss Mick McCarthy has made two changes for this evening’s game at Huddersfield with Paul Anderson and Stephen Hunt coming back into the side in place of Anthony Wordsworth and Frank Nouble.
The Blues are otherwise unchanged with the back four together for the 25th league game in succession. On-loan Manchester City winger Alex Henshall is on the bench for the first time with Paul Green dropping out of the 18.
Green, Jay Tabb and Paul Taylor all travelled but are left out of the matchday squad.
Huddersfield: Smithies (c), Lynch, Gerrard, Smith, Dixon, Gobern, Clayton, Norwood, Hammill, Ward, Wells. Subs: Bennett, Woods, Clarke, Hogg, Scannell, Holmes, Bunn.
Town: Gerken, Chambers (c), Berra, Smith, Cresswell, Skuse, Hyam, Anderson, Hunt, Williams, Murphy. Subs: Loach, Henshall, Wordsworth, Nouble, Ebanks-Blake, Richardson, Mings. Referee: Mark Brown (East Yorkshire).

Not happy that Wordsworth's been dropped again. It's painfully obvious that Skuse/Hyam are too similar. Wordsworth must wonder what the hell he has to do to keep his place against Mick's favourites.

Pretty happy with that!
Solid and good options off the bench, could Henshall get some minutes?

Cautious approach for 3/4 of the game agaun ut seems snd hope to nick a goal. Great if it works. ....poor if it doesn't.

Once again Woody overlooked, can't see many goals in this game
|ZurichBlue added 19:05 - Apr 8|
What utter crap!! MM is a complete an utter moron. I will of course hope and pray for a win but my God my patience with him is wearing thin. He's clearly not happy with Woody speaking out!
|Wallingford_Boy added 19:06 - Apr 8|
Anderson?!? Worst player with a ginger beard EVER! Poor Woody..
|Bown added 19:07 - Apr 8|
what about tayler
|Kirbmeister added 19:08 - Apr 8|
KEEP THOSE NEGATIVE COMMENTS COMING IN ......GAME HASN'T EVEN STARTED YET. YOU NEVER KNOW WE MAY PLAY WELL AND WIN.
|Blue_Heath added 19:11 - Apr 8|
Losing patience with Anderson, by his own admission he's been poor.
Hyam/Scuse too samey, Wordsworth is more forward thinking.
|ruds added 19:11 - Apr 8|
Let's trust in Big Mick.
Hunty must be doing wonders on the training pitch as against Derby & Forrest he was lacking the Va Va Voom we hoped he still had...
Still, when Berra & Smudger net so many goals maybe we don't need any wide wing wizardry haha!

I personally don't like the one striker approach, but Nouble seems to function better as an impact sub. Wordsworth unfortunate, but by all accounts poor at Blackburn. Must trust Mick in selection in this must win game.
|prebbs007 added 19:12 - Apr 8|
How does Hyam continue to be selected ??? JOKE !!'
|ZurichBlue added 19:12 - Apr 8|
I certainly hope so. Keep the down votes coming my way fellas, I don't give a flying fig - just really frustrated with MM!
|RegencyBlue added 19:15 - Apr 8|
Would like to see Skuse and Wordsworth in the middle personally but I'm not the manager so we go with the usual!
|spanishblue added 19:20 - Apr 8|
I have very little go say except with MM resources he's got I think you moaning lot should shut up where were we last year where are we now my case rests carry on MM & co good job done I take my hat off to you thanks for getting us so high up the ladder
|Bluetone added 19:21 - Apr 8|
Woody if you value your career ask your agent to find you a new club now 'cos this manager is scared of the creativity players like you bring to the team.
Either that or learn how to run round like a demented headless chicken.
|TrueBlue93 added 19:25 - Apr 8|
those moaning about woody's absence...
He fits perfectly into a system with three in midfield. However, the way we have set up today he is never going to start. I would imagine this system will play with 2 holding mids then 3 infront ando, joneista and hunty providing support for the striker. surely this means that woody is competing for a place with williams.
I know who i'd rather have!!
|Keaneish added 19:26 - Apr 8|
HaHaHa!!!! Thats hilarious!!
Henshall getting a spot on the bench over Taylor. Wordsworth being dropped.
Anyone in their right mind knows those decisions are a joke given the importance of tonight...
Again a must win game and we're hoping to win it with what we have on the bench when the game gets a bit stretched. Put me in a hole and f**king bury me...
Now i have to tune in listen to the bumbling Alex Mathie and 45 - 60 minutes of uneventful football...

how can mick say tayler was ill over the weekend i saw him in colchester town centre saturday night
|DanLyles added 19:30 - Apr 8|
Both Wordsworth and Taylor have worked really hard when I've seen them. What is more, they add creativity, pace and potentially more goals than the likes of Hyam and Anderson. As much as I appreciate the job MM is doing, I can't help but think leaving these more creative (yet still hard working) players out at the expense of less talented individuals will be the difference between us finishing in or outside the top 6. Regardless, we should still have enough to beat Huddersfield tonight.
|boysinblue added 19:30 - Apr 8|
Wordy's getting the Taylor treatment. I feel both of them have been treated very unfairly. If we win tonight then well done MM, if it's a 0-0 then I fear a backlash. I'm not bashing MM cos I think he's done sterling job since he's come here, but if he'd just show a tad more ambition we'd be comfortably in the play-off by now.
|pazelle added 19:30 - Apr 8|
That team with Wordsworth instead of Skuse has a record of P2 W2 D0 L0.
|Ipswichbusiness added 19:33 - Apr 8|
I rather like this team, not least because we have two genuine wide players in the wide positions. Murphy is doing surprisingly well as the lone striker and Williams is looking good in that place between midfield and attack. At the risk of boring everyone with a long-standing moan of mine, I would like to see a right-back, preferably a young right-back, at right-back as opposed to a centre-back.
|bobwya added 19:37 - Apr 8|
Just trying to work out why MM is manager and Qatarblue isn't - just can't quite put my finger on it
|TimmyH added 19:38 - Apr 8|
Agree about the impact Nouble makes as a sub so that's understandable but Wordsworth being dropped again is very strange. About time Anderson and Hunt had an impact on a game as so far have not been impressed particularly with Anderson.
