Who else that's available is capable of picking a defence splitting, forward pass?

Rothwell? Dolan?

Edit--sorry forgot Rothwell is out. Perhaps you have a point!

Dolan was in my suggested starting eleven too.

No mention of Rothwell being out in the lancs telegraph live feed?

Might have been kept quiet, and whoever said it on here just got lucky hearing it from a little birdy.

We will find out very shortly when the teams are announced anyway.

Knowing TM's aversion to play newcomers in the starting eleven and the fact that none of them are likely to be match fit or available, I think we are likely to start with 3 at the back, being Nyambe, Ayalla and Darragh. A midfield 4 of Buckley, Evans, Johnson & Bell and Brereton, Arma and Dolan as the front 3. You can perm any of the recent acquisitions and the usual crew on the bench.

Today is likely to be a tough encounter and would be brilliant if we were to win and would set us up nicely for when the new boys are likely to come in to the reckoning. The rest of the season is an exciting proposition.

Thoroughly looking forward to the match, just sad we're not there to cheer the boys on.

From my armchair, sat on my jack jones, COYB!

 

If Mowbray changes the formation to 343 after 433 has served us so well he needs his head examining!

I think it's 433 come hell or high water.

I'm more concerned about his lack of physicality for a midfielder in a  promotion chasing  team.  Too weak.

Not our strongest lineup today that’s for sure, I’d take a point right now if you offered it me. COYB

Lightweight line up.  I think we struggle today.

Less worried about lightweight, more with both Holtby and Rothwell out we may struggle to link up midfield and attack. Huge game for Buckley.

Be interesting to see how Johnson and Evans link up.

2-1 to us, Brereton and Johnson

Best we could realistically put out. Glad Dolan is starting and Gallagher is on the bench, I was worried it might be the other way round. 

Coyb!!!

Two of those will be in the back four all season. Nyambe and Lenihan are good enough for a top 6 challenge.

Great to see Buckley starting - big game for him today.

Struggling to understand why the bench has both Carter and Wharton. I know there are injuries etc and the new guys have only just arrived, but surely there are better options than doing that. One of the newbies in another position has to be fit enough for the bench, or a youth player in another role to vary our options. It's very unlikely we will need to bring off both CBs!! (Watch it bloody happen now)

Obviously the more worrying part of today's squad is the midfield. Hope Evans' injury issues haven't affected his readiness, and that Buckley steps up to the plate. It looks lacking in mobility with Rothwell out.

Not a great line up and nothing on the bench to make a difference either . Could be a tough day but it’s less tombola and more of that’s the best we could probably put out today. Still could get a win and hopefully a few new faces and a couple back for the next game. Staying positive regardless of the result today. COYB
