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).

The Opta stat that Town had won more points than any other EFL team from losing positions surprised me somewhat as the view on the TWTD Forum and amongst fans I've spoken to is that when we go behind we lose control a bit and tend towards hoofball.

Hark Now Hear - This is Our Time by Pickersblue22
This one feels different. After nearly eight and a half years of hurt, this one just feels like it may all fall into place for Town. A chance to bury dark memories of Grant Holt, Lewis Grabban, Bradley Johnson, Nathan Redmond, Alex Neil et al.
