Three Changes as Blues End Season Against Boro
Sunday, 6th May 2018 12:19
Cole Skuse, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Freddie Sears return to the Blues’ line-up for their final game of the season at home to Middlesbrough.
The injured Mustapha Carayol and Ben Folami drop out while Luke Woolfenden moves to the bench.
Town will again start with three at the back with Jordan Spence over the knee injury which had made him a doubt going into the match at right wing-back.
Middlesbrough, who are confirmed in the play-offs but will be looking to seal fifth spot, are unchanged from the team which beat Millwall 2-0 at home last week. Former Blues skipper Grant Leadbitter is on the bench.
Town: Bialkowski, Webster, Carter-Vickers, Knudsen, Spence, Skuse (c), Connolly, Nydam, Kenlock, Sears, Waghorn. Subs: M Crowe, Gleeson, Hyam, Morris, Cotter, Woolfenden, McLoughlin.
Middlesbrough: Randolph, Friend, Ayala, Shotton, Gibson (c), Clayton, Assombalonga, Howson, Downing, Besic, Traore. Subs: Konstantopoulos, Fabio, Leadbitter, Bamford, Cranie, Fry, Harrison. Referee: David Coote (Nottinghamshire).

A fixture that started as a mid-table game but ended as one that would be marked by having special T-shirts printed to commemorate it - this was the Demolition Derby.

The first leg had been played in the three-sided Portman Road, with no North Stand. Circumstances that many fans thought contributed to our relegation that season.
