McGavin Handed Second Start at Lincoln
Wednesday, 20th Nov 2019 19:05
Brett McGavin is handed his second first-team start in eight days as the Blues take on Lincoln City in an FA Cup first-round replay at Sincil Bank looking to end a run of 15 winless games in the competition.
McGavin looks set to start in the centre of midfield alongside Emyr Huws with Andre Dozzell - who played six minutes for the England U20s last night - probably on the right and Anthony Georgiou on the left.
Tomas Holy is in goal with Janoi Donacien and Myles Kenlock the full-backs and Toto Nsiala and James Wilson, who wears the armband, at centre-back. Will Keane will be the lone striker with Alan Judge just behind him.
On the first-team bench for the first time is young Wales U21s keeper Adam Przybek along with academy scholars Tyreece Simpson and Tommy Hughes. For the Imps, ex-Blues loanee Callum Connolly is among the subs.
Lincoln: Vickers, Toffolo, Shackell, Bolger, Andrade, Chapman, Grant, Eardley, Anderson, Hesketh, Akinde. Subs: Smith, Pett, Payne, Bostwick, Walker, Connolly, Melbourne.
Town: Holy, Donacien, Wilson, Nsiala, Kenlock, Huws, Dozzell, McGavin, Judge, Georgiou, Keane. Subs: Przybek, Rowe, Edwards, El Mizouni, Woolfenden, Hughes, Simpson. Referee: Andy Haines (Tyne & Wear).

No Downes, Norwood, Jackson, Skuse or the captain and with the mistake waiting to happen (Nsiala) in defence further proof the club doesn't care about this...hopefully I'll be proved wrong.

The biggest thing for me about this is where this leaves Harry Wight. He's not been warming up with the first team and now the new lad does that and makes the bench. Pity as has always been very good in the U23s.

The first team will be seriously lacking match fitness after not playing for weeks!
Disappointing team selection.

lincoln ain’t nothing special so there should be no excuses tonight. Time to even things up, failure to do so will be disappointing to say the least.

With his team selections for these three cup games, we had better win on Saturday or else PL is in for a lot of criticism. COYB

Another great cup run beckons...

Pretty obvious that lambert isn’t taking this cup seriously. A good way to thank the fans would be to aim to get through the rounds and maybe draw a big team.
Dread to see what happens on Saturday when the team he puts out will be lacking so much match fitness.
Hopefully I’m wrong

It’s obvious He doesn’t want to win this one

Hoping for a win but the league is the priority!

Doing his utmost to get out of the fa cup as quick as possible.
We should slaughter Blackpool with a totally, fully fit and refreshed side on Saturday! Mot impressed with his messing, I'm losing interest

Lot of fans losing interest with this crap . Bored to f**ckin tears with this carry on . Wish lambert would f##k off

Different gravy. 13/8 is general price. We haven’t been pushed by anyone.
|peterleeblue added 21:32 - Nov 20|
Some right fannys on here mind! Lambert to F##k off. LOL!!
|TimmyH added 21:42 - Nov 20|
Well like Dozzell in the first tie Alan Judge has finally done something this season - yes we have spawned it with almost the final kick of the game...
|Linkboy13 added 21:46 - Nov 20|
Just thinking Judge could be moving on in January when something happens. Another uninspiring performance but im afraid this is what you get with the rotation system no continuity but we keep grinding out results.
|Skip73 added 21:51 - Nov 20|
Well, that shut me up. Well done lads!!!!

Jeez, some of you on here...guess you wont be celebrating if we go back up.
