Bialkowski Starts But No Place for Sammon in 18
Wednesday, 14th Jan 2015 19:08

Bartosz Bialkowski starts for the Blues in tonight’s FA Cup third round replay against his old club Southampton at Portman Road with Dean Gerken having picked up an injury, while there is no place in the 18 for the apparently exiting Conor Sammon.

Ill trio Teddy Bishop, Jay Tabb and Cole Skuse miss out, while Tyrone Mings drops to the bench having tweeted that he was under the weather earlier in the week. Jonny Parr is at left-back.

With Sammon, who appears set to end his loan ahead of a move to Rotherham, missing and Noel Hunt ineligible having not been at the club for the first game, first-year pro Darren McQueen is amongst the subs. Third-choice keeper Michael Crowe is also on the bench.

Southampton make five changes from the team which beat Manchester United 1-0 at Old Trafford with Morgan Schneiderlin, who scored in the 1-1 draw with the Blues, misses out due to a knock. Ex-Blues keeper Kelvin Davis is on the bench.

Town: Bialkowski, Chambers (c), Parr, Berra, Smith, Hyam, Bru, Ambrose, S Hunt, Murphy, McGoldrick. Subs: Crowe, Mings, Clarke, Stewart, Anderson, McQueen, Bajner.

Southampton: Forster, Clyne, Fonte (c), Gardos, Targett, Wanyama, Reed, Ward-Prowse, Tadić, Bertrand, Long. Subs: K Davis, S. Davis, Cork, Pelle, Isgrove, McCarthy, Hesketh.

Strong team. Looks like Sammon on the way out. Interesting to see who will come in to replace him. Best of luck lads.

Gerken not even on the bench? I expect he's caught the bug.

Strong starting 11. Lack of back up on the bench though. Particularly up front .

Salmon going means we really must have another striker coming in

I hope this is finished in 90 minutes. Where ever the result 120 min wont do us any favors.

We are light in terms of cover but it could be set for "Lightening" McQueen to make a dramatic debut! 90min winner!

Been really poor so far - like saturday.
Got no problem if we're giving 100% but this is so disappointing against an average Saints performance.

Going to upset a few fans here but I think it needs to be said that McGoldrick needs a kick up the arse..this is why we need a better striker on the bench.
