Connolly Makes Debut at QPR
Saturday, 9th Sep 2017 14:08
New loanee Callum Connolly has been handed his Blues debut in this afternoon’s game at QPR.
On-loan Everton man Connolly looks set to line-up at right-back with Dominic Iorfa joining Jordan Spence at the centre of the defence and Jonas Knudsen returning to left-back.
Manager Mick McCarthy could opt to start in a 4-4-2 system with Martyn Waghorn on the left, Grant Ward on the right and Cole Skuse and Flynn Downes in the middle with Joe Garner partnering David McGoldrick up front.
Alternatively, the Blues could start 4-3-3 with Garner, McGoldrick and Waghorn up front.
Bersant Celina, who is celebrating his 21st birthday today, is on the bench alongside Freddie Sears and Myles Kenlock, as is Tom Adeyemi for the first time since his summer move to the Blues.
QPR make three changes with Jack Robinson, Alex Baptiste and Pawel Wszolek replacing Steven Caulker, Darnell Furlong and Matt Smith.
QPR: Smithies, Bidwell, Onuoha (c), Freeman, Washington, Scowen, Mackie, Robinson, Baptiste, Luongo, Wszolek. Subs: Lumley, Furlong, Manning, Smith, Osayi-Samuel, LuaLua, Wheeler.
Town: Bialkowski, Connolly, Iorfa, Spence, Knudsen, Skuse (c), Downes, Ward, Waghorn, McGoldrick, Garner. Subs: Gerken, Celina, Adeyemi, Rowe, Sears, Kenlock, Woolfenden. Referee: Andy Davies (Hampshire).

'Twas the Night Before Transfers by monty_radio
‘Twas the night before Transfers, when all thro’ the house,
Not a rumour was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Marcus would surely be there;
Academy boys nestled snug in their beds,
While visions of Carabao danced in their heads.

Saturday afternoon, I check my watch, quarter to three. I take a look outside and the afternoon’s drizzle has ceased, clearing me for a dry walk to the ground.
