Eight Changes as Blues Face Coventry for Third Time
Tuesday, 10th Dec 2019 19:13
Town boss Paul Lambert has made eight changes for this evening’s FA Cup second-round replay at home to Coventry City, the third meeting in 10 days between the clubs.
Tomas Holy returns in goal with Barry Cotter at right-back, Myles Kenlock on the left and Toto Nsiala alongside Luke Woolfenden, one of three players who started Saturday’s 1-1 draw at St Andrew’s, at centre-half.
Stand-in skipper Cole Skuse is joined in central midfield by Emyr Huws with widemen Alan Judge and Gwion Edwards keeping their places from the weekend. James Norwood and Kayden Jackson are up front.
Coventry make three changes from Saturday’s game with Jamie Allen, Jordan Shipley and Liam Walsh in the XI for Dom Hyam, Zain Westbooke and Amadou Bakayoko, who all drop to the bench.
The winners of tonight’s tie, after 90 minutes, extra-time or penalties, will face either Plymouth or Bristol Rovers away in round three with the Pilgrims and Pirates meeting at Home Park next Tuesday.
Town: Holy, Cotter, Nsiala, Woolfenden, Kenlock, Edwards, Skuse (c), Huws, Judge, Jackson, Norwood. Subs: Norris, Wilson, Nolan, Downes, Dozzell, Garbutt, Keane.
Coventry: Marosi, Rose, McFadzean, Kelly (c), Allen, Biamou, O’Hare, Walsh, Dabo, Shipley, McCallum. Subs: Wilson, Mason, Hiwula, Hyam, Bakayoko, Godden, Westbrooke. Referee: Christopher Sarginson (Staffordshire).

We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
