Blues Without Chambers Against Coventry
Saturday, 7th Dec 2019 14:47
Town are without skipper Luke Chambers for this afternoon’s League One game against Coventry at St Andrew’s, but manager Paul Lambert makes only one change from the team which drew 1-1 with the Sky Blues in the FA Cup last Sunday, although six from the last league outing, the 0-0 draw with Wycombe.
Chambers has a neck problem, which is only expected to sideline him for a few days, while Cole Skuse, who suffered a hip problem at Peterborough on Wednesday, is on the bench.
Gwion Edwards comes in for Danny Rowe on the left of the front three with the former Macclesfield man out with a knee injury, also not believed to be serious. Alan Judge is on the right with Will Keane the lone central striker with James Norwood suspended.
Flynn Downes again skippers from central midfield alongside Jon Nolan and Andre Dozzell, while Janoi Donacien and Luke Garbutt are the full-backs and James Wilson and Luke Woolfenden the centre-halves.
Forward Callum O’Hare, who scored Coventry’s equaliser last week, and striker Amadou Bakayoko start for the home side, while striker Matty Godden is on the bench after injury.
Coventry: Marosi, Dabo, McCallum, Hyam, McFadzean, Rose, Kelly, Westbrooke, O’Hare, Bakayoko, Biamou. Subs: Wilson, Allen, Hiwula, Godden, Shipley, Kasteneer, Drysdale.
Town: Norris, Donacien, Woolfenden, Wilson, Garbutt, Dozzell, Downes, Nolan, Edwards, Judge, Keane. Subs: Holy, Skuse, Jackson, El Mizouni, Kenlock, Dobra, Georgiou. Referee: Darren Drysdale (Lincolnshire).

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
Big Al by ElephantintheRoom
When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
