Five Changes as Blues Face Preston
Saturday, 4th Nov 2017 14:29

David McGoldrick, Martyn Waghorn, Callum Connolly, Adam Webster and Jordan Spence return to the Town side for this afternoon’s home game against Preston North End.

Dominic Iorfa, Grant Ward and Kevin Bru drop to the bench having started at Cardiff in midweek, while Tommy Smith and Flynn Downes are left out of the 18.

McGoldrick, Waghorn and Bersant Celina look set to play behind lone out-and-out frontman Joe Garner, who will be facing his old club. On-loan Everton man Connolly, primarily a defender, seems set to start in central midfield alongside Cole Skuse.

Irish international striker Sean Maguire is the latest player to join Preston’s injury crisis having suffered a hamstring injury with six defenders already sidelined.

Town: Bialkowski, Spence, Chambers (c), Webster, Knudsen, Skuse, Connolly, Waghorn, McGoldrick, Celina, Garner. Subs: Gerken, Iorfa, Ward, Sears, Nydam, Bru, Kenlock.

Preston: Maxwell, Fisher, Huntington (c), Boyle, O’Connor, Welsh, Barkhuizen, Pearson, Browne, Johnson, Hugill. Subs: Hudson, Vermijl, Horgan, Harrop Gallagher, Mavididi, Robinson. Referee: Andy Madley (West Yorkshire).

Connolly in the middle or 5 at the back? If so who's in the middle with Skuse? Confused by this selection. Excited to see didz Celina waghorn and garner starting together.

So we have 6 defenders, no real midfield & 4 up front. Just as I predicted. Hump it from the back & hope. Against a team with no fit defenders! God help us

brian_a_mul added 14:39 - Nov 4
Happy with that team, better protection in midfield and Didz & Celina in starting team. Garner will be relishing this. McGuire out is a bonus

muccletonjoe added 14:41 - Nov 4
we never have a midfield whoever plays . so just play forwards and defenders is mm solution

Skip73 added 17:15 - Nov 4

littlestoneblue added 17:29 - Nov 4
And about time we fielded our strongest team, there were some shock results today though

casper16 added 17:31 - Nov 4
Karlosfandangal. I'm very pleased with the result but it appears from reports that the style of play was pretty much as I guessed it would be until substitutions gave us a midfield. I support the team but not Macarthy & chose that team

casper16 added 17:56 - Nov 4
& he chose that team
