Five Changes at Sheffield Wednesday
Saturday, 16th Apr 2016 14:32

The Town side features five changes ahead of this afternoon's crunch game at Sheffield Wednesday with David McGoldrick making his first start since October and Kevin Bru, Jonathan Douglas, Liam Feeney and Tommy Smith all returning to the team.

Luke Varney (hamstring) and Cole Skuse drop out through injury and Luke Hyam as he’s suspended, while Ben Pringle moves to the bench and Ainsley Maitland-Niles is left out of the 18.

Andre Dozzell is amongst the senior subs for a second time, alongside fellow youngsters Adam McDonnell and Myles Kenlock.

The Blues could line-up in a variety of ways but may start in a 4-3-3 formation with Kevin Foley and Douglas taking up the deep midfield roles and McGoldrick, Feeney and Freddie Sears making up the front three.

Sheffield Wednesday: Westwood, Hunt, Loovens, Lees, Pudil, Wallace, Bannan, Lopez, Lee, Joao, Forestieri. Subs: Wildsmith, Sasso, Bennett, McGugan, Matias, Hooper, Nuhiu.

Town: Bialkowski, Chambers, Smith, Berra, Knudsen, Douglas, Bru, Foley, Feeney, Sears, McGoldrick. Subs: Gerken, Digby, Kenlock, McDonnell, Dozzell, Pringle, Pitman. Referee: Robert Madley (West Yorkshire).

Like the bench.

It's about next season now.

why Douglas Id rather see McDonnell play

HarryS_H added 14:41 - Apr 16
But without skuse and ham, Douglas is a good fit.

That is a nice looking team!

prebsa added 14:46 - Apr 16
Douglas the only downside

It don't matter what midfield we put out as the ball is still gonna get launched 🙄

Would rather Pringle for Bru but no big men up front so no hoofball hopefully .

The front 3 look interesting but shame Skuse is injured and Douglas has taken his place, glad that Foley is back in midfield he seems to make the passing game tick together better.

Should've been this adventurous at home in the last few games!! I'm guessing Mick's hoping we lose so like when he tried 3-5-2 for a half last season he can say well I tried it the fans way and it doesn't work!!!

Decent selection, bench shows our lack of depth, but nonetheless an excellent opportunity for the youngsters.

Kirbmeister added 15:49 - Apr 16
Mathie said no urgency about us and Sheff W have another couple of gears to go. he's not impressed!

It's taken Andre Dozzell just 26 minutes to do what it takes Cole Excuse to do once a season, i.e. score!!! Finally, we have something to get excited about! I've weighed in on Mick lately but regardless of the scoreline today as his midfield selections of late bore me tears! But regardless of the result today he deserves some credit for putting a more positive and attacking line up out there, that's what so many of us have been crying out for. Early season he put out some decent line ups, and until we got thumped by Reading it was looking very promising indeed! I know Ryan Fraser was key when we were top early season and he's a huge loss. However, lately Mick has gone mega negative in his selections and he has to take responsibility. But today he's put out a team that on paper is much more exciting than anything he has of late. And regardless of the final result, I think he deserves some credit for being more brave in his team selection. Thank God for Andre Dozzell! A chip off the old block scoring on his debut like his old man! BLUE ARMY!!!
