Lambert: Rochdale Game Looks Like it Will Be Off
Friday, 23rd Aug 2019 11:22
Town boss Paul Lambert confirmed that it looks like Town’s game at Rochdale in a fortnight will be postponed due to international calls.
League One clubs are able to to request the postponement of matches if three first-team players receive international calls at full or U21 level.
Younger levels, such as Albania's U19s, who have called up Armando Dobra, also qualify if the player involved has featured in 25 per cent of a side’s first-team matchday squads that season as the young winger has.
As reported yesterday, in addition to Dobra, Anthony Georgiou has been called up by Cyprus and Alan Judge is in a provisional Republic of Ireland squad with the final party to be confirmed next week, while Andre Dozzell and Flynn Downes are expected to be in the England U20s, whose squad will also be announced next week.
Young keeper Adam Przybek has already been named in the Wales U21s, while Idris El Mizouni is expected to be called up by Tunisia’s U23s or their full squad.
We understand that Lambert will look to have the game put back if the requisite calls are confirmed.

The Beat One Year On by ElephantintheRoom
Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).
