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.

Reflections on Relegation by TimS
I was walking through Kesgrave last Saturday afternoon around 4.35pm with my mind wandering. I could distinctly remember making the same walk from a local Tesco through Grange Farm back in the spring of 2002.
The History Boys by Tristan90
My first season following Town was 2002/03, just after relegation from the Premier League and in full of optimism for a quick return.
It's Not R*********, It's the Promise of an Adventure by BaltachaFanClub
Let’s be totally honest, we’ve not had a good year. I know that’s an understatement and come August we begin in a league we haven’t played in for the majority of most readers’ lives.
