Knudsen and Harrison in Town Squad Facing MK Dons
Tuesday, 24th Jul 2018 15:04
Full-back Jonas Knudsen will make his return to action with the Blues in this evening’s penultimate friendly away against the MK Dons (KO 7.45pm), while new signing Ellis Harrison will make his first appearance in a Town shirt.
Knudsen, 25, was back at Playford Road yesterday having been given time off following his time at the World Cup with Denmark, where he played one game and picked up his fourth full cap.
Harrison, 24, joined the Blues from Bristol Rovers yesterday and is likely to start as the lone striker in Paul Hurst’s increasingly familiar 4-2-3-1 system.
Martyn Waghorn, who continues to be the subject of transfer speculation, is also in a 19-man party travelling to face the League Two club. Right-back Jordan Spence will be up against his old club.
Hurst is likely to take the same approach tonight as he has in the last two friendlies with most of his senior players used from the start and a handful of youngsters coming off the bench in the second half.
Tickets are available on Gate 3 for away supporters, priced at £10 for adults, £8 for seniors and £3 for under-18s, while admittance is free for under-12s.

Reigning Champions Outfought By Town by clivebleedingthomas
The 1994/95 season ended with the Town bottom of the Premier League with only seven wins to their name. Nevertheless the season had its bright spots - Adam Tanner scoring to earn a 1-0 win at Anfield, our first victory there; the Budgies being relegated on the last day of the season, having accumulated 16 more points (43) than we managed; and in September 1994 this match against reigning Premier League Champions, Manchester United.

The summer of 1974 had been an anxious period for Town fans. Will he or won’t he leave us? That question hung over us as uncertainty grew about Bobby Robson’s future. Don Revie had left Leeds to take up the England job and Bobby was seen as his likely successor.
