Jackson and Woolfenden Start as Blues Host Bristol Rovers
Friday, 2nd Apr 2021 14:20

Town boss Paul Cook has made two changes for this afternoon’s home game against Bristol Rovers with Kayden Jackson and Luke Woolfenden coming into a system featuring two strikers.

Cook is forced into one of those changes with Kane Vincent-Young picking up a hamstring injury on his return at Wigan last week. Woolfenden, his replacement from the bench at the DW Stadium, starts in his place.

The Blues boss has been weighing-up whether to move away from his preferred 4-2-3-1 system in recent weeks and appears to have taken the plunge with Jackson likely to line-up alongside James Norwood in a front two - for the first time since February last year - with Freddie Sears dropping to the subs.

Town seem likely to start in a 4-4-2 system but their personnel also allows for 3-5-2. Bristol Rovers start former Town youngster Ed Upson in their midfield.

Town: Holy, Woolfenden, Nsiala, Chambers (c), Ward, Edwards, Dozzell, Bishop, Judge, Jackson, Norwood. Subs: Cornell, McGuinness, Harrop, Dobra, Sears, Parrott, Drinan.

Bristol Rovers: Jaakkola, Leahy (c), Upson, Hanlan, McCormick, Tutonda, Baldwin, Walker, Ayunga, Martinez, Williams. Subs: Day, Little, Hare, Daly, Westbrooke, Oztumer, Barrett. Referee: Stephen Martin (Staffordshire).

Not surprisingly I fancy a 0-0 !!

Can't see why Cook prefers Chambers at CB to Woolfy especially as Woolfy looked really out of sorts playing there last week.

Meant Woolfy looked out of sorts at RB

Anyone know what Kenlock has done as he hasn't been in the squad nor U23s ?

Same old underperforming midfield starts again, not one dropped!...can't even see Kenlock in the 18 unless he's injured? Woolfie looked like a fish out of water at right back and Jackson want's to wake up and do something other than that I'm pleased! :)

Think it will be same sort of performance as we have been seeing, ,Another banana skin if we dont lift our game. No surprise with KVY, dont think he will do much this season after such a long time out a set back was always likely imo .

Lethargic and uninspiring first half with a complete lack or urgency from the majority. For the love of god get Andre off.... He is pretty much non existent. We may be 2-1 up but if changes aren’t made and we don’t tighten up in the middle I fear this will be another loss.

Appalling first half the players seem to be playing like they know that they are going to be released next season. Pinky and Perky (Dozzell and Bishop) in midfield non existent, how does Dozzell keep his place in the team. Alan Judge is thirty two years old and does more running than these two muppets. Desperately need a big physical centre back with good leadership qualities.
