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).

My grandma claimed to know nothing about football. "Oh, I'll leave you men to talk about the football", she'd say, but she knew alright. She knew exactly what was going on with the Town.

Too Many Suspects? – A Swede Ramble by monty_radio
Town have finally dropped through the beckoning trapdoor – but who to blame? Rev Evans with the peeling candlestick? Colonel McCarthy with the fraying rope? Captain Keane with the poisoned dart? Professor Paul with his own interpretation of chaos theory?
