Monday, 21st Apr 2014 14:16

Christophe Berra and Luke Hyam miss out through injury as the Blues take on fellow play-off contenders AFC Bournemouth at Portman Road.

Frazer Richardson is handed his first Blues start at right-back with Luke Chambers moving to his preferred position of centre-half alongside Tommy Smith. Berra misses his first league game since coming into the team in August.

Anthony Wordsworth continues in central midfield with Paul Anderson returning on the right and Stephen Hunt on the left, with Frank Nouble dropping to the bench. Second-choice keeper Scott Loach is back in the 18 after missing Saturday’s game at his former club Watford.

Town: Gerken, Richardson, Chambers (c), Smith, Cresswell, Skuse, Wordsworth, Anderson, Hunt, Williams, Murphy. Subs: Loach, Green, Mings, Tabb, Taylor, Marriott, Nouble.

AFC Bournemouth: Camp, Francis (c), Cook, Ward, Daniels, Surman, O'Kane, Pugh, Ritchie, Kermorgant, Grabban. Allsop, Elphick, Harte, Smith, MacDonald, Fraser, Rantie. Referee: Andy D'Urso (Billericay).

Oh no, great to have a player like Richardson to come in but Berra has been a rock, big loss in such an important game

pretty much the line up we've been asking for, attack minded :)

Aaargh! It's Andy D'Urso.
Could he be the 12th man again?

So from that I take it we're playing 4411 again? like to see two upfront personally if we're playing 4 in midfield. Shame about Berra as we all know he's been great, like to see Skuse 'step it up' as I've felt he hasn't been that great lately.
All the best lads - 3 points we need!

Looks like a good squad, should have a goal or two in it. Mings looks like to only cover for the back 4 off the bench!
