Someone mentioned this can be viewed on iFollow, not sure how true?

I'm sure I read somewhere they were doing a free radio commentary for today's game. But having just checked on iFollow it states there's 'no pass for this fixture'. Whatever happens over the course of the season, I doubt I'l be signing up for this service.

Could prove the away game death knell for me as I'll be attending fewer games, may struggle with away links and I currently have no intention of paying for a service which won't be able to cover Sky Games. Looks like I'll be finding other things to do with my spare time. Hey ho.

Starting XI: Johnstone, Cranie, Bartley, Hegazi, Gibbs, Phillips, Livermore, Brunt, Barnes, Morrison, Robson-Kanu.

Subs: Harper, Fitzwater, Rondon, Rodriguez, Leko, Edwards, Burke, Wilson, Barry, Bond.

Cranie starts again, Dawson and Nyom left out.

No Dawson a week before the season so looks like he is off.

Rondon and Rodriguez both on bench too - is that a sign or am I looking in to it too much?

Think it may well be a busy week.

It's very hard to get excited over that starting line-up. Is Field injured?

The side chosen for the final pre-season friendly often gives a clue about how clubs will line-up for the first league game - I hope this selection doesn't!

What a bizarre lineup. Why Cranie? Why Kanu? If that's the sum total of our ambition for the season we'd better start planning for League One now.

Echo your thoughts worcs.

By this stage, you would think this is the prep game for next weekend. No Dawson in squad sounds like Dawson being awkward, or being off. Rondon and Rodriguez on bench with Robson-Kanu starting? Clearly Moore liking Robson-Kanu's contribution, but sadly he just doesn't score enough goals to be our starting striker. It's got to be Rodriguez or Rondon.

Cranie at full back a week out? It is clear now that he is signing, but we clearly CLEARLY need a right back if Nyom is injured (or does not want to be here).

Worrying signs so far.

I believe Nyom is injured, but I suspect you're right about Crainie unless we have something up our sleeve. The absence of Dawson does suggest that something's happening one way or another.

It also looks like Darren isn't intending to have Burke in his starting line-up next week either, despite us being in a lower division where he looked very good at Forest, but I have a (baseless) suspicion that someone will come in for Phillips before the window closes, so maybe Burke would get a go if that happened.

Well its fair to assume no one will have predicted that side !

Looks like Cranie is a permanent fixture, Daws is offski, Livermore & Brunt as midfield axis ?? Kanu as sole striker? Where is Nyom?

Very confusing selection
Lovin the championship, just lovin it !

I don’t know what’s in Darren’s mind re the line up or what other constraints there are, but sometimes fans try to second guess and overthink things.

I’m just going to enjoy this wonderful ocassion in honour of our Legend, Cyrille Regis!

Barnes from 25 yards. Curled into bottom corner. Great goal.

Brilliant interplay with Robson Kanu, Barnes ghosts in again and puts through keepers legs. Too easy for him and us so far. 2 0

Long ball from Brunt picks out Robson-Kanu who outmuscles defenders, turns keeper and puts into empty net. 3 0.

I actually think Robson-Kanu will be very useful this season over 46 games. Decent backup for the championship.

4 1 at the moment. Robson kanu's second camr from a Barnes cut in and great cross over.

Their goal came from a player cutting inside and bending in from edge of box.

Great performance so far.

Looking reasonably good with the ball.  Right back a concern.  Barnes looking like he could tear it up on this 45 mins.
