Kenlock and Spence Start at Brighton
Tuesday, 14th Feb 2017 19:04

Myles Kenlock and Jordan Spence replace the injured Steven Taylor and Christophe Berra as Town boss Mick McCarthy names the side which played much of Saturday’s 1-0 win at Aston Villa.

Kenlock will play at left wing-back with Spence, Jonas Knudsen and skipper Luke Chambers the three-man backline, while Josh Emmanuel will be the right wing-back. Bartosz Bialkowski was in goal.

In midfield, Toumani Diagouraga and Emyr Huws will be joined by Grant Ward with Cole Skuse out with an achilles injury. Up front, Tom Lawrence will again be partnered by David McGoldrick.

Second-placed Brighton, who have ex-Town loanee David Stockdale in goal, are unchanged.

Brighton: Stockdale, Bruno (c), Duffy, Dunk, Pocognoli, Knockaert, Sidwell, Stephens, March, Baldock, Hemed. Walton, Tomori, Kayal, Skalak, Murphy, Akpom, Murray.

Town: Bialkowski, Spence, Chambers (c), Knudsen, Emmanuel, Diagouraga, Huws, Ward, Kenlock, Lawrence, McGoldrick. Subs: Gerken, Pitman, Digby, Bru, Sears, Douglas, Moore. Referee: Roger East (Wiltshire).

coyb, hope they can last the night, quite a few players not used to playing 3 games a week in there. as good a team as we could have put out and our youngest league starting line-up in 18 months

Two quick thoughts: 1) how far Digby has fallen—only two fit CBs and he is only on the bench!; 2) Douglas and no Bishop?

I'm expecting something out of the game. Would be good to put three decent results together rather than the very average win one, draw one, lose one. To do that we mustn't sit back, but look to attack.

Considering the "sick note" list we still look good on paper. I'm confident we can get something, but that's not unusual!

It's interesting that Bournmouth are trying to get Mings to do this role (I know he's had a couple of shockers but he's been unlucky with the games he's had straight after 18 months out.). If we are going to play 3 at the back and try to hang onto the ball a bit more then we need ball players in the right and left of the 3 centre backs.

Defending is another matter though!

Can't argue with starting 11 and of course they should last 90 minutes! Try explaining that to any of our players from earlier eras.

However what is the story with Bishop. He was to be our shining light this season and now fit and still cannot get on the bench ahead of Bri and well as 3 strikers on the bench! Weird. Need answers.

What's happened with Dozzell?

Titus Bramble out of Retirement anyone???

portman, they do a lot more running than in earlier eras, but they should still be able to do it i agree!
wish bishop was there, i guess the thinking is, they need cover for huws and diagouraga with their lack of match fitness. if we need a more forward thinking midfielder they can put lawrence (or even mcgoldrick) in that position and bring on a striker

milton, dozzell played the u-23s game yesterday i think

Lets hope this formation works for all our sakes.

Under cosh already and Kenlock booked after a minute.

Bit worry as this ref is card happy,and doesn't live too far away!

Shame we were pegged back, and frustrating them scoring from a penalty, but I'd have settled for 1-1 at the break so well done, lads. A point would be an excellent result. Come on!

Come on super mick bring on the fabulous Dougie get out of our club McCarthy
