El Mizouni Handed Full Debut at Preston
Friday, 19th Apr 2019 14:42

Idris El Mizouni has been handed his full debut and Corrie Ndaba is on the bench for the first time as manager Paul Lambert makes four changes as the Blues face Preston North End at Deepdale.

The Tunisia U23 international, 18, comes into the side on the right of the front three with Kayden Jackson starting in place of Collin Quaner, who is left out of the 18. Will Keane is on the bench for the first time since suffering his hamstring injury at Wigan in February.

In midfield Flynn Downes returns in place of Andre Dozzell, who is a substitute, while Toto Nsiala replaces James Collins, who is missing from the squad.

Jon Nolan is back on the bench having overcome his achilles injury. There are no loanees in the XI but Keane is joined by Trevoh Chalobah and James Bree among the subs.

For Preston, Joe Rafferty is handed their debut with Callum Robinson and Sean Maguire returning to the starting line-up. Ex-Blues keeper Michael Crowe is on the bench.

Preston: Rudd, Fisher, Davies, Storey, Rafferty, Ledson, Gallagher (c), Robinson, Johnson, Maguire, Nmecha. Subs: Crowe, Earl, Moult, Ginelly, Stockley, Huntington, O’Reilly.

Town: Bialkowski, Emmanuel, Chambers (c), Nsiala, Kenlock, Skuse, Bishop, Downes, El Mizouni, Judge, Jackson. Subs: Gerken, Chalobah, Nolan, Keane, Dozzell, Bree, Ndaba. Referee: Stephen Martin (Staffordshire).

Well, at least Lambert is now sensibly playing our players, rather than loanees. The result doesn't really matter.

No loan players in the team - 2-0 down, time for the established, and youngsters, to step up hey ?

My guess is that most of them have their minds set on the Beach rather than Deepdale.

Not exactly an enticer at the moment to purchase a Season Ticket - a good performance today would haqve been most welcome.

Sad thing is we are not anywhere near good enough, and I'm, as yet, to be convinced our so called 'super youngsters' are either.

Or our manager for that matter

Nice to see the youngsters play but we wont be doing very well next year with Skuse at the core of the team, constantly leaving gaping spaces due to lack of pace. Could be a long couple years for us I really hope not but from what League one games I've watched we look a long way off the top 6.
