I think he will play Patterson on the right, if he is fit and windass up top with Rhodes. He said that he didn't think Patterson was a CF.

 

Apart from that Lees for Borner. 

 

LB who knows. Either of Van Aken or Penny.

Iorfa is probably out, same Van aken (neither appeared in training) and Harris is suspended, Pulis also said he doesn't see Paterson as a striker.

Best guess is this:

 

Rhodes - Windass

Reach - Bannan - Luongo - Paterson

Penney - Borner - Lees - Palmer

Westwood

 

Paterson used to be an attacking wingback, who'd get forward and was a goal threat from there. Would make sense to put him on the right, tho he did play central mid for a while.

Left back is the big problem. Monk didnt get one in, so Penney is our only natural left back. Palmer has filled in over there before so that could happen again.

With the suspended Harris and suspected injuries, I think 4-2-3-1:

 

GK - Wildsmith or Westwood if ready.

 

RB - Odubajo or Palmer if he's ready, with him just coming back today from being with Scotland. 

CB - Lees

CB - Böner

LB - Penney

 

CM - Luongo

CM - Bannan/Pelupessy/Brown?

 

RM - Kachunga

CAM - Bannan/Brown?

LM - Reach

 

ST - Rhodes 

 

Bench: 

Wildsmith/Dawson/Westwood?

Palmer/Odubajo?

Urhoghide

Galvin/Dawudo?

Pelupessy/Brown?

Shaw

FDB

Hunt

Windass

I don’t think it’s a smart move to play Westwood upfront alone, he’ll need someone to play off him

Not saying it's what I'd do.

But I've just got a hunch it'll be sumat like

Westwood

Odubajo   Lees   Borner    Palmer

Paterson    Pelupessy   Bannan  Reach

Brown

Windass

 

Mind. I do wonder if it's a coincidence that Rhodes has done the press conference today...

 

 


Just a bloke. Being dragged along in a world that moves too quick for it's own good.

We could see Bannan move to the left mid with Penney overlapping. Might be a bit risky though. 

Dont think he will be that adventurous in his first game away.  Think Palmer may play left back.

Just realised, Preston was one of the few away games I went to back in 2019. 
 

3-3 after being 3-1 down with 15 mins to go. 
 

Bannan, Forestieri and Nuhiu on the scoresheet (as was Lees with an O/G). 
 

Smashing sending off for Iorfa as well 😂

 

A victory would be nice but I’d be happy with a 3-3 that’s for sure!

I think Pulis will either play 3-4-2-1 like he did at Middlesbrough or considering our defensive injuries he might decide to go 4-2-3-1? Until some key players return or until he can bring some of his own players in. 

 

Hard to predict a line up. Hopefully Luongo and Brown are fully fit and I'd be tempted to play Bannan further forward and Paterson in attacking midfield. With Windass or Rhodes upfront.

I've never understood why lineups go down the page.

If i'm looking from behind the goal, then the keeper is the nearest thing to me, i.e. at the bottom of the page and everyone else is above.

 

If the lineup goes down the page.. where are you looking at it from?

The oppoent's end? Underneath the ground? It's lunacy! LUNACY!
