Can see a couple of changes here, e.g. maybe Morrison to start, keep Barry for Blackburn.

I think there could be a couple of enforced changes.
Obviously Gayle, and Hegazi was struggling towards the end against Wigan.
Just hope we don't see Bartley back in the side

I wonder how many of the recent ticket sales for this match are down to our current form. Equally it could be interesting to see how many of those recent sales are down to Wednesday having sold their allocation by December 21st with home tickets having been on general sale for some time.......
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.

Given that it's the holiday period, we're in good form and we had 24.5K Albion fans at the match on boxing day I am pretty certain these aren't Wednesday fans buying tickets. The ticket sales are completely consistent with the number of sales you'd expect in the days leading up to a game.

This could have all been avoided with changes against the 2 weaker sides of the festive period (the two we've just beaten in 1st/2nd gear), I digress though, I feel we'll get:


GK: Johnstone


RB: Adarabioyo
CB: Dawson
CB: Bartley
LB: Gibbs


RCM: Phillips
CM: Livermore
LCM: Barry


RCF: HRK
CF: Rodriguez
LCF: Barnes


subs: Myhill, Morrison, Brunt, Sako, Mears, Harper, Burke.


My preference if it turns out Hegazi IS injured would be for Mears to come in at RB and Tosin to play alongside Dawson.

That's it SOLD OUT! Not one ticket available anywhere in the stadium.

Anyone still after one it's always worth checking on returned tickets. Best bet phone the ticket office.

Minimal changes to our winning team.
Gayle Injured so Sako or HRK in.
If hegazi struggling it will be Bartley.

Why I can understand bringing Morrison in and pushing Phillips forward, bringing mears in and shifting tosin is 4 changes instead of just 2

I think youre right. Make changes that need to be made don't make changes for the sake of it.

Gayle being unfit could allow any of; HRK Sako Burke Leko or Edwards coming in. Phillips too we a few more changes.

Regardless of whether he plays HRK or Sako we probably can't afford Rodriguez having another 90 if he and Gayle we're to both injured we would be in a pickle.

Saw some reports that foresteri has a warrant for arrest for failing to turn up to court. That surely helps us Abit more

Think this is a difficult game now that they have changed manager and picked up form. If we lose JRod then I do worry a bit and we might need to move Phillips out to the wing. I’d take a point at this stage I think but a win would be amazing as it’s starting to look like Leeds and norwich are just getting the rub of the green and have that spirit of a promotion team. The longer this run continues the more I’ll worry that it’s about to come to an end!

He’s barely missed a minute all season so it was always going to catch up with him. Big Dave tends to use the same 11 and the same subs. If he’s out as well does that mean both Sako and HRK?

Philips has played in the striker role for Scotland. Maybe he'll have to fill in tomorrow?

Would be a huge miss from midfield. Can't help but think we've made a real mess of selection in the last 2 games.

I've heard there are doubts about Hegazi and Rodriguez. If they don't make the game I'm pretty sure we won't be resting anyone we're not going to want to make any more changes than we have to. Bartley hasn't appeared on the bench since returning from his injury but I'm presuming he's fit. If not Adarabioyo may have to come across with Mears filling in at right back. I can see us lining up something like this today:


                                      Johnstone

Adarabioyo              Dawson             Bartley                    Gibbs

                 Phillips           Livermore               Barry

Brunt                              Robson-Kanu                            Barnes.



Hopefully Hegazi and JRod will make the game.

If Hegazi is out I'd put Mears at RB and put Tosin at CB.
Mears isn't amazing but is better than Barkley and it is his natural position.

Really hoping for a good performance and three points today but concerned by our potential missing players. With a number of our better players unavailable and the fact they have won the last two games 1-0 this one could be a tough one for us. As always the first goal will be important.

A bit worried about this one now with the potential injuries that we’ve got. Really shouldn’t have made the last game such hard work and could have afforded testing a few

Think it's going to be a line up that will divide opinion, but one that could have been avoided had we rotated more over th festive period.
