Bjelland in for Dean, and sounds like we need to make some changes in midfield following Saturday. McLeod out and Kaikai in?

............McCormack looked like he tweaked his groin after only a few minutes Saturday so don't think he's up for starting.............

MacLeod was not good on Saturday and probably needs easing back in. It might be worth seeing if KK can play the deep no.10 role

KK has hardly played all season, surely this isn't a game for him to start?

Yennaris needs to stay no more than five yards in front of our back four for the whole game. The Hoff needs to be on the bench as if we need to chase this then two up front is necessary.

i am not sure that works. I would bring Macca in if fit but it has to be for Nico as Woods cant really play on the wing.

I would expect Bjelland to be captain tonight because the times I have seen him he looks like a proper athlete and a leader although not a full back. It will give DS a real headache if he takes it by the scruff.

As you infer, Nico is probably our best defensive midfielder so he should be covering in front of the defence... but then he's probably our best presser, so plays forward with Ryan the deeper-lying player... hmmm

Agree, I would go with this one. Only concern is with Bjelland as I have read somewhere that he is struggling with an ankle problem.

DS said as much in his preview of tonight's game IIRC. If AB is unfit, then Barbet would have to come in as a CH, but who would bee LB? Think young Tom Field is injured, so, whoever it is, will bee playing out of position.

Field seems to be injured. Maybe the greek guy who has taken his place in the B team could step up?

Think he was on the bench at Wolves. No one knew who he was. Researching later when I got home, I think he is a LB, and believe he's travelled with the squad, so nay well bee him.

I said the same about KK after the Newcastle game. He can thread a pass through for Hogan. Sawyer loses the ball cheaply far too often for my liking. And I like KK's busy style

MacLeod was not good on Saturday and probably needs easing back in. It might be worth seeing if KK can play the deep no.10 role

If Bjelland is injured who plays LB with Barbet CB. Can Yannaris play at LB?
Yeah he was absolutely dreadful there against Charlton a couple of seasons ago.

But then again, this was long before his emergence as a crucial player towards the end of last season, so he may fare differently now.

But if Bjelland's injured, maybe Yennaris RB and Colin LB? If we are in a position where we have to 'shoehorn' someone in there, I think Colin, being the classy footballer that he is, would probably be able to fit in with relative ease. Yennaris hasn't actually played in a fullback position for months now, so I'd rather he was given his preferred right side.

Tom Field will be on the bench tonight at least (he was on the players coach at Newcastle)

He can't be worse than MacLeod was on Saturday. Sure, it's a bit of a gamble, but I imagine he is raring to go.

Need to target that then surely? Surprised Saunders is on him. Maybe the idea is to bring a fresh Clarke on
