Skuse Returns at Brighton
Wednesday, 21st Jan 2015 18:55

Cole Skuse’s return to the side in place of Stephen Hunt is Town’s only change as the Blues take on Brighton at the Amex Stadium. A win will take the Blues to the top of the Championship.

Skuse, who has missed the last three games having been ill, will take up his usual central midfield role with Jay Tabb switching to the left. New signings Paddy Kenny and Freddie Sears are on the bench.

First-year academy scholar Kundai Benyu travelled with the senior squad first time but was left out of the 18 along with Cameron Stewart.

Former Blues loanee David Stockdale starts for the home side, who are without Craig Mackail-Smith (ankle), Jake Forster-Caskey (hip) and Greg Halford (calf) due to injury and suspended defender Lewis Dunk, their top scorer.

Brighton: Stockdale, Bruno, Greer, Hughes, Bennett, Holla, Ince, Calderon, Teixeira, Baldock, O'Grady. Subs: Walton, Rea, Chicksen, McCourt, March, Colunga, Best.

Town: Bialkowski, Chambers (c), Mings, Berra, Smith, Skuse, Bru, Anderson, Tabb, N Hunt, Murphy. Subs: Kenny, Parr, Clarke, S Hunt, Bishop, Ambrose, Sears.

Great to have skuse back to keep the ball on the floor and break up play, we've missed him. A team that should do the job and plenty on the bench if it's not going for us.

Hard working starting 11 with flair on the bench. Feel we will lose this one 2.0

C'mon Town, a massive chance to go top & stay there.

Bru and Skuse nice :)

Yep, best available selection for tonight's game. This is also very winnable. Brighton not great and lost to brentford.

The_Snake added 19:14 - Jan 21
We may not have the biggest squad but that bench certainly gives us some decent options. Be good to see Stewart involved in the near future.

bellazzurri79 added 19:15 - Jan 21
Brighton have many of their best players out tonight... We have to control this game from the off
4-1 ipswich Berra to score first 475/1!!!!

Very much should win this with Brighton losing key players also, top by 9.40pm I'm sure.

cobsterblue added 19:17 - Jan 21
Brighton are there to be beat tonight with all them missing.

Attack attack attack

Strange that Kundai wasn't on the bench for the Millwall match.

bellazzurri79 added 20:06 - Jan 21
God sake 1-0 down already come on town

TimmyH added 20:09 - Jan 21
See ol' sick note Hyam is out wonder he can't find any form, he plays a few matches and then has twice that amount out injured.

bellazzurri79 added 20:11 - Jan 21
Get in Murphy!!!!!

TimmyH added 20:34 - Jan 21
Sounds like they have been well on top 1st half - being undone by a weakened Brighton side?

loyal_Blue added 20:35 - Jan 21
At the game and we are complete rubbish! They are walking through our defence with ease! Absolute rubbish !

bellazzurri79 added 20:36 - Jan 21
It is unacceptable to concede 3 goals in 45 mins especially to a team that has won only 5 games this season!!!!!!!!

Mountain to climb and no excuses ..........

Lightningboy added 20:36 - Jan 21
Jeez,when it goes wrong it goes wrong!

Stick a big bloody rocket up their backsides at half-time Mick.
