Chambers Back as Blues Host Sunderland
Saturday, 10th Aug 2019 14:26

Skipper Luke Chambers returns to an otherwise unchanged Blues line-up facing Sunderland in their opening home game of the season.

Chambers, suspended last week at Burton, replaces James Wilson at the heart of the defence with the Wales international dropping to the bench.

Alan Judge and Emyr Huws are also among the subs, as is Andre Dozzell, who missed the game at the Pirelli Stadium due to a knee problem.

Sunderland make two changes with Luke O’Nien and Aiden McGeady both starting, while Elliot Embleton and Will Grigg drop to the bench. Ex-Blues skipper Grant Leadbitter is also among the subs.

Town: Holy, Donacien, Woolfenden, Chambers (c), Kenlock, Skuse, Downes, Rowe, Garbutt, Jackson, Norwood. Subs: Norris, Wilson, Judge, Roberts, Dozzell, El Mizouni, Huws.

Sunderland: J McLaughlin, C McLaughlin, Willis, Flanagan, Gooch, McGeouch, O'Nien, Hume, Dobson, McGeady, McNulty. Subs: Burge, Ozturk, Power, Maguire, Embleton, Grigg, Leadbitter. Referee: Neil Hair (Cambridgeshire).

Oh dear, there goes a clean sheet!

Very divisive call from Lambert bringing Chambers back after the clean sheet last week...interesting too that neither Huws nor Judge starts. Draw all day long for me but if we can win would be a big confidence booster.

Huws and Judge not match sharp enough to start yet but fear we could be overrun in MF. Massive barometer today

What's the old adage 'never change a winning team' I would have started Wilson and brought Chambers on if needed.

Either way COYB.

No need to bring him back.

He makes too many mistakes for me. Should not be the captain, Norwood for captain for me once he proves himself.
