Anybody want to guess at this? lol. Hard to know who will be available and who won't at this stage isn't it? I'd be hopeful of J Rod's red being overturned so I'll presume he's available. Hopefully Hegazi and Gayle will back as well.

OK I'm going with:


                                          Johnstone

Adarabioyo            Dawson                      Hegazi                   Gibbs

                    Phillips            Livermore                 Barry

Gayle                                 Rodriguez                                   Barnes


Subs: Myhill, Mears, Brunt, Morrison, Harper, Robson-Kanu, Burke.


That team looks way better doesn't it?

Could be a million miles away with this team selection though.

I would be surprised to see Gayle, even a minor hamstring issue will take 7-10 days, best case scenario will see him back for Norwich in my view. Rodriguez is the key, if it isn't overturned we are looking at a front 3 out of the following players: Barnes, Robson-Kanu, Sako, Burke and I guess Leko and Edwards. If that were the case, I think I would have Burke wide left, Robson-Kanu wide right and Barnes down the middle. As an aside, I do worry about Gibbs making it through this game unscathed.

Is this game available  on Sky Red Button  ?

I was thinking the same thing? Its not a traditional 3pm Saturday kick off. Fingers crossed it’s available.

It will be:


Johnstone


Adarabioyo
Dawson
Bartley
Gibbs


Phillips
Livermore
Barry


Sako
HRK
Barnes


Unless Rodriguez gets his ban overturned where we would have him through the middle and Kanu wide right.

                    Johnstone

Tosin.      Dawson.     Hegazi.     Gibbs

                      Livermore
 Phillips.     Morrison.    Barry.     Barnes

                 Sako.       HRK

Even with 10 men they seemed to cope with us in midfield so put numbers in

Would definitely have Edwards and Townsend on the bench with a view to resting Gibbs and Phillips if/when we go 2-0 up

Firstly there won't be a change of shape, secondly while I appreciate the ingenuity, sneaking a 12th player out onto the pitch won't be easy.

Johnstone

Adarbiyio
Dawson
Hegazi
Gibbs

Phillips
Livermore
Barry

Sako
Rodriguez (subject to red card being overturned)
Barnes

If we have to go for three games with Robson-Kanu as our centre-forward, I fear for us.

Bloody spoilsport
1 from the forward 2
I'm worried that teams are working us out to easy (Barnes/ midfield)

Forest Leeds is on at 3pm. So they could be on the red button. The Boxing Day games being on the red button weren’t announced until Christmas Eve was they.

  When you click on the forest Leeds game on the sky q planner it says multi events. Villa v qpr , Brentford v Norwich , derby v boro and Sheffield Wednesday blues are listed but that’s it. Hopefully more get added to the planner

I think so too, they will double up on Barnes and flood the midfield.  We need to be ready in advance not wait till half time/60 mins

Phillips                             J-Rod                     Barnes

The above given that Sako was pretty awful against Sheff Wed. Phillips has done really well in the middle but feel like his pace on the break could be useful.

Thats true.. very strange. I assume it will be available on ifollow. But i dont to pay £10 for it when it might be on Sky. Very strange for the banner to being showing  just a few games. Fingers crossed anyway.

I dont know how true it is but i was told for bank holiday games clubs can decline their games being shown on sky at 3pm in the uk.

Most seem to just do it but as of yesterday blackburn apparently hadnt gave permission for it be shown, whether they want more fans through the door with it being bank holiday instead of them watching sky i dont know.

I dont know what fee you get for being a red button game but with us being an attraction, being bank holiday, etc maybe they fancy their chances of earning more that way.

Like i say i have no idea if its true or not.

I don't think Sako was awful against Wednesday, just rusty - he definitely had a couple of moments of quality. If we just drop him every time then he's never going to get any better.

Correct he needs a run. But as do the likes of Burke leko Edwards etc
Only negative thing I can say about the manager is that he doesn't fully utilise his squad.

If we can get sako up to scratch it could give us the extra 10% that gets us promoted

get Barry back in the midfield. big no for a  brunt and Morrison partnership in the cm roles.
                   johnstone

  mears    Dawson   hegazi   Gibbs

       Livermore      Barry

                  Morrison
   Phillips                       barnes
                 Rodriguez

I've omitted Tosin on form and presume Gayle will be missing.
