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.

It will be interesting to see if Knudson plays as a CB.

Shouldn’t it be Juan game?

Made a mess of that, originally said he won one cap but changed it and removed the wrong bit. Amended.

What is the squad that's going to the Dons

Knudsen's long throws in the world cup caused some problems and a goal. Mainly because they were lower, faster and aimed at someone. Maybe PH can work on that here as they always used to be too high and too slow and therefor wasted.

wonder if knudsen's throws were different due to the lack of a run-up at pr? or whether mick told him to go high (seems doubtful, as it's a very mick-friendly tactic)

I see Knudsen as central defender if we don't sign Tilt then Kenlock can get back to where he was when he 1st came into the side running down the left and putting in crosses creating chances(that was why he was dropped for being too positive!!!!) we have the makings of a side with great pace in every position but one! hopefully Trevoh will replace the snail in cdm i'm looking forward to some fast flowing exciting football as this young team develops

Watching that Trevoh guy last night he was well out his depth at under19 level, cant see him hacking it in the championship. People are cacking themselves with excitement over a winger freebie, who by all accounts is very poor, the posh guy, who could be our best signing, and a striker who is totally untried at this level. What we need are central defenders or we are going to get ripped apart this season.

I think Denmark probably trained him into it. The odd thing is why our coaching staff didn't. It seemed obvious. Better coaching? Be interesting to see if it gets used here and how much/well.
