El Mizouni Starts as Bonne Skippers
Saturday, 25th Sep 2021 14:33

Idris El Mizouni is handed his first league start of the season as skipper Lee Evans misses out and striker Macauley Bonne wears the armband as the Blues take on Sheffield Wednesday at Portman Road.

Academy product El Mizouni joins Tom Carroll in the centre of midfield with Rekeem Harper on the bench.

Matt Penney comes in for the injured Hayden Coulson at left-back with Town otherwise unchanged from last week’s 1-0 win at Lincoln.

Vaclav Hladky continues in goal with Christian Walton, who has an adductor problem, again missing from the 18. Bersant Celina makes his second home debut in the number 10 role.

For Wednesday, Marvin Johnson and Lewis Wing come into the side for Jack Hunt and Chey Dunkley, who drop to the bench.

Town: Hladky, Donacien, Edmundson, Burgess, Penney, Carroll, El Mizouni, Burns, Celina, Fraser, Bonne (c).  Subs: Holy, Woolfenden, Vincent-Young, Harper, Aluko, Chaplin, Pigott.

Sheffield Wednesday: Peacock-Farrell, Palmer, Hutchinson, Iorfa, Shodipo, Adeniran, Gregory, Bannan (c), Johnson, Berahino, Wing. Subs: Wildsmith, Brown, Paterson, Dele-Bashiru, Dunkley, Hunt, Sow. Referee: Andy Davies (Hampshire).

Harper did fine when coming on last time, would have started him

No Norwood in the 18?

I wasn't even aware that El Mizouni was still in the picture.
I think Cook wants to put harper on in the second half to give us a plan B and maybe take Celina off if he gets tired.
There's no reason why we can't get a result with this team.

No midfield and no attacking full backs! Doing ok but not strong enough in midfield.

Who picked the team today Bluey what a joke. A midfield of lightweights against a big strong team like Sheffield Wednesday is baffling to me. Really like Paul Cook but he's hardly inspiring confidence with his decision making. Why was Aluko left out after being one of the few successes against Bolton. Celina despite being the darling of the fans did nothing today and should have been withdrawn at half time in favour of Aluko. If things are not working out you have to make changes much earlier as the top managers do in the Premier league.

Not into giving player on loan and player in good form responsibility. But what do I know
