Town Without Chambers and Skuse Against Derby
Wednesday, 13th Feb 2019 19:04

Town are without skipper Luke Chambers and Cole Skuse for this evening’s home game against Derby County.

Chambers has been suffering with a foot injury since the Aston Villa game and was feeling the problem late on at Norwich, while Skuse is ill.

The Blues’ captain’s absence sees Jonas Knudsen join Matthew Pennington, a Rams target in January, at the centre of the defence with Myles Kenlock at left-back and James Bree on the right. In the absence of Chambers and vice-captain Skuse, keeper Bartosz Bialkowski wears the armband.

Trevoh Chalobah takes up the deeper lying midfield role with Teddy Bishop returning to the starting line-up alongside Flynn Downes ahead of him.

Alan Judge is behind strikers Will Keane and Collin Quaner with Freddie Sears out for nine months, while Gwion Edwards is back in the 18 after a groin problem.

Derby include ex-Blues striker Martyn Waghorn and former loanee Tom Lawrence, but another one-time Town striker Jack Marriott is not yet ready to return after illness and an ankle injury.

Back in the side for the first time since his ban for biting Joe Allen in November is ex-Canaries midfielder Bradley Johnson.

Ex-England international Ashley Cole is on the bench alongside Town nemesis David Nugent.

Town: Bialkowski (c), Bree, Pennington, Knudsen, Kenlock, Chalobah, Bishop, Downes, Judge, Quaner, Keane. Subs: Gerken, Edwards, Jackson, Harrison, Nolan, Nsiala, Dozzell.

Derby: Roos, Bogle, Keogh (c), Tomori, Malone, Johnson, King, Wilson, Holmes, Lawrence, Waghorn. Subs: Ravas, Wisdom, Bryson, Bennett, Cole, Nugent, Huddlestone. Referee: Andy Madley (West Yorkshire).

Ah capitalist Evans hey ? Are you Corbyn in disguise or just someone who thinks we should all earn the same, spend the same, wear the same stupid flat caps and worship the ground Diane Abbot walks on ?

I certainly did not miss Skuse. Please do not bring him straight back. Whilst a wholehearted player I fail to see why every manager seems to have him as first name on the team sheet. Rarely assists almost never scores and we seem to concede regularly when he plays, so what does he add. I certainly didn’t miss him tonight
