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).

Two Directions by bbg
Fans, media and pundits always seem to target the manager, even Bobby Robson was targeted in his time. However, he was rightly allowed four of five mediocre seasons before starting to make real progress.
They Shoot Horses, Don't They? by Theipswich
Given the circumstances in which we supporters find ourselves at our lowest point in 64 years and with a level of communication befitting Lord Lucan, I have penned an open letter to our president Marcus Evans, as I am certain I would not have the courtesy of a reply if I were to write to the club:
