Huws Starts as Blues Switch to 3-5-2 at MK Dons
Tuesday, 17th Sep 2019 19:27
Town are set to switch to a 3-5-2 formation as they face the MK Dons at Stadium MK.
Emyr Huws, James Wilson, Luke Garbutt and Jon Nolan return to the team for Myles Kenlock, who is left out of the 18, Luke Woolfenden, Gwion Edwards and Alan Judge, who are all on the bench.
Huws, making his first league start since the final day of the 2016/17 season, is set to be at the centre of the midfield alongside Flynn Downes with Nolan ahead of them behind strike pair James Norwood and Kayden Jackson.
Cole Skuse moves to the centre of the back three - a role he occupied at Sheffield United in last season's penultimate game - as Town match the Dons' usual system with Wilson to his left and skipper Chambers to his right with Garbutt and Kane Vincent-Young the full-backs.
MK Dons: Nicholls, Williams, Walsh, Houghton, Poole, Martin, McGrandles, Kasumu, Boateng, Dickenson, Nombe. Subs: Moore, Brittain, Lewington, Gilbey, Harley, Bowery, Agard.
Town: Holy, Chambers (c), Skuse, Wilson, Vincent-Young, Downes, Huws, Garbutt, Nolan, Jackson, Norwood. Subs: Norris, Edwards, Judge, Dozzell, Woolfenden, Georgiou, Keane. Ref: Lee Swabey (Devon).

Paul Cook isn’t a man to mince words. Even though we are all sick of the continuing spiral of underachievement at Town, it was nevertheless still a bit of a shock to hear him lay into the 18 that capitulated to Wimbledon in what he described before kick-off as a season defining match.
Here We Go by tractorboykent
For a club recently described as Britain’s unhappiest, it may seem odd that Town fans are suddenly awash with optimism now that the deal is done.
One of the Strongest Squads? by NormEmerges
I keep hearing that ITFC has one of the strongest squads in League One. It’s certainly true that we have one of the biggest squads, but strongest? I would assume ‘strongest’ to mean ‘includes higher quality players for this league’. What do the facts tell us?
Tractor Boy on a Mission by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
Damned Lies and Football Statistics? by bluesman
Football is possibly the most observed sport of all time, and there is plenty of statistical information available in the public domain to make some informed observations about clubs and managers, and their performance over the years.
