Sears, McGoldrick and Pitman All Start at Reading
Friday, 11th Sep 2015 19:27

Town boss Mick McCarthy includes Freddie Sears, David McGoldrick and Brett Pitman from the start as the Blues face Reading in this evening’s live Sky game at the Madejski Stadium (KO 8pm).

Sears looks set to start wide on the right but Town have the option of moving to 4-3-3 if necessary with Reading having named three strikers - including debutant Matej Vydra - in their line-up.

Christophe Berra returns to the Town line-up, the Scottish international central defender having missed the 3-2 defeat to Brighton two weeks ago with a hamstring problem.

Daryl Murphy is on the bench after his calf injury, while there is no place in the 18 for new signing Tommy Oar, however, Jonny Parr is included for the first time this season after a niggly thigh injury.

Reading: Bond, Gunter, Obita, Ferdinand, McShane, Norwood, Quinn, Tshibola, Blackman, Sa, Vydra. Subs: Al-Habsi, Hector, Robson-Kanu, McCleary, Piazon, Williams, John.

Town: Gerken, Chambers (c), Knudsen, Berra, Smith, Skuse, Douglas, Fraser, Sears, McGoldrick, Pitman. Subs: Bialkowski, Malarczyk, Parr, Coke, Maitland-Niles, Touré, Murphy.

Why is Gerken playing, when he is such a liability in goal?

muccletonjoe added 19:34 - Sep 11
an attacking line up , at least a couple of goals in this team

Would have liked to see Maitland Niles back in, somehow.

Surprised Oar not on the bench. Must be tired after his Aussie trip

Very attacking line up. Bench looks good, but surprised Coke gets a place. Surely we have better? Not convinced by Gerken. I don't rate him at all. Mick clearly does though.

FFS people already morning and we haven't kicked off yet. Let the manager manage and we concentrate on supporting who ever is wearing a Town shirt

Very disappointed to see Gerken start ahead of Bart. Prior to the sad passing of his father Bart was proving to be the stand out number 1 and was playing well. Gerken is a liability and the back 4 don't trust him

Half time .. Where is our midfield ?? 😡😡

OldClactonBlue added 21:27 - Sep 11
Well it's started now. The defence tonight would struggle in a Sunday League game. Diabolical.

I wouldn't mind if the opposition was better than us but why o why do we give away the most ridiculous goals. Gherken has to go,

Now you know why we are moaning tonight ! What a dreadful performance .. They obviously have their minds on Old Trafford ! Worst possible thing that could have happened ! Dread that night and I've got a ticket ! Must be crazy !!
