We wouldn’t be surprised if John Carver doesn’t keep essentially the same team that did well on Saturday in getting only our second win in 2015 with a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa.
Ryan Taylor – expected at left back tonight
Massadio Haidara is a doubt with water on the knee, and we’d be surprised if he’s risked tonight, when he can be given 10 days rest before our next game at Everton a week on Saturday.
Head coach John Carver has to be very careful with these injuries with the squad down to its bare bones – so to speak.
Remy Cabella is still out injured and Jack Colback will serve the second game of his two match ban for picking up 10 yellow cards.
Everybody else that was fit for Saturday’s game is still fit for tonight apart form Massadio – as far as we know – so here’s the likely line-up for tonight:
Janmaat Williamson Coloccini (c) Taylor (R)
Obertan Abeid Sissoko Ameobi
Subs: Woodman Satka Anita Gutierrez Gouffran Armstrong Perez
We’ve included 18 year-old Lubo Satka on the bench, since he seems to be the best available young defender – and we don’t have any left in the first team.
What would your team be for tonight.
And Jonas Gutierrez could make a return to the first team, after last playing in early October of 2013, before he has his battle with testicular cancer.
Only one in four fans think we can win this game.
