Four Changes as Blues Host Leaders Hull
Tuesday, 24th Nov 2020 18:25

Town boss Paul Lambert has made four changes for this evening’s first-v-third clash with leaders Hull City at Portman Road with Luke Woolfenden, James Norwood, Keanan Bennetts and Emyr Huws all starting.

Woolfenden comes in at the heart of the defence for Toto Nsiala, who drops to the bench, while Huws is in central midfield with Teddy Bishop (ankle) and Jon Nolan (groin) both having picked up knocks on Saturday.

Alan Judge moves into the midfield having been on the right of the front three during Saturday’s 2-1 victory over Shrewsbury. Brett McGavin continues in place of Andre Dozzell, who is serving the last game of his three-match ban.

Norwood is the lone central striker with Kayden Jackson among the subs, while Bennetts is handed his first league start for the Blues on the right of the front three with Freddie Sears continuing on the left.

Aaron Drinan returns to the bench for the first time since suffering a thigh injury in the opening league game against Wigan, while Oli Hawkins is also back in the 18 having missed out at the weekend due to knee and groin issues.

Hull City include ex-Blues right-back Josh Emmanuel and former Town loanee Callum Elder in their XI.

The Tigers make one change from the team which beat the MK Dons 3-1 on Saturday with Regan Slater coming in for Alfie Jones in central midfield.

Town: Holy, Chambers (c), Woolfenden, Nsiala, Ward, McGavin, Huws, Judge, Bennetts, Sears, Norwood. Subs: Cornell, Nsiala, Kenlock, Lankester, Drinan, Jackson, Hawkins.

Hull City: Ingram, Elder, Burke, Smallwood (c), Wilks, Honeyman, Emmanuel, Adelakun, Slater, Greaves, Magennis. Subs: Long, Coyle, Batty, Eaves, Scott, Samuelsen, Jones. Referee: Lee Swabey (Devon).

Expected changes tbh
Did not expect a system change from the 4-5-1 or the underperforming Sears or Judge being omitted.
Lankaster can count himself very unlucky not to start
3 strikers on the bench but only one to come on, unless he plays Jackson left midfield again.
Still hoping for a good result, but that is what it is...hope !!!
Will be the first to admit I am wrong...and happy to do that !!!

Whatever ! I’m sure we’d all have a view of the side and personnel to select , but our man in charge and his team have undoubtedly picked a side to do a job in the light of rather more intimate knowledge than the rest of us .Let’s all hope they’ve got it right and the boys do good !!

Well thankfully it’s behind closed doors

With the negative atmosphere some on here would create and the jibes at certain players before a ball is kicked is ridiculous let’s give the away team the upper hand YOU NUMBsKULLS
At least without them I believe we have a better chance of a result

Sears isn't bad.... he's just not a winger.

Very lucky to beat a very poor Shrewsbury. Test tonight. Need to beat a top side.

Brave decision by Lamberty to go with a worse team than the one that struggled against Shrewsbury, against a much better team in Hull.

Hope Hull pitch in with a few OG and a penalty for us.

He's either a genius or a fat homeless unshaven fat b*m pretending to be a once Prem manager.

Well...2-0 down at Half Time. What did you expect. The only players who seemed to be guaranteed a game are the two players who have rode the back of this club season after season. Players who have been part of this clubs dire football. How do they still get a game is just baffling. Wake up Evans.

Ignore above drivel being spouted out by a moron
Well not sure what to say about that
We're 2-0 down but have been better side from 2nd minute until 45th!!
Woeful defending for both goals
Looks like we've conceded a few pens lately so dare not tackle or mark in our box
Still 100% better than sat
Keep plugging away and confidence will grow

It’s quite clear that Betty Blue hasn’t a clue about team selection !

Are we actually any further forward than under Hurst? I can’t say Lambert has done anything positive for this club. He’s a cross between Keane and McCarthy IMO!! It’s so depressing being an ITFC supporter!!

you cannot blame this performance on injuries, it is just another example of how bad we have slowly become over a very log period of time. There is nothing in this team to encourage any fan that we are good enough or that PL or the players will turn it around. It is dire. It is atrocious. it is an embarrassment. It is sad to watch/hear. Like so many fans my heart hurts with the conflict of hope and reality of disappointment.
