Huws Returns as U23s Host Sheffield Wednesday
Tuesday, 26th Mar 2019 10:49
Midfielder Emyr Huws returns to U23s action for the first time since August as the young Blues face Sheffield Wednesday at Playford Road this afternoon (KO 1pm).
Wales international Huws, 25, has been out of first-team action since December 2017 when he suffered a knee injury which required surgery and has been hit by a number of minor setbacks as he has sought to make his return this season.
Tristan Nydam and Idris El Mizouni are also set to be involved for Town’s table-topping U23s, who will all but secure a place in the Professional Development League Two South play-offs if they beat the Owls, who are seventh in the North section and are coached by former Blues left-back Neil Thompson.
Gerard Nash and Chris Hogg's side go into today’s game five points ahead of second-placed Crystal Palace and eight ahead of Coventry City in third.
A Blues victory would leave the Sky Blues, who play at Bristol City on Friday afternoon, requiring maximum points from their final four games to stand any chance of finishing ahead of Town.
U23s: Egan, Cotter, Webber, C Smith, Ndaba (c), Huws, Hughes, Nydam, El Mizouni, Simpson, K Brown. Subs: Alley, McGavin, Clements, Foudil, T Smith.

Where Might This Lead? by Moggasknockdown
As we draw stumps on the darkest season in the club’s recent history, it is hard not to reflect on Paul Lambert's efforts to revive our listing club with at least a degree of optimism for the future.
Fanstastic by LegendRay
There was quite a groundswell of opinion that no annual awards should have been given after a season like that. Except perhaps for one award that doesn’t have a category… the award for the supporters!
