Rene Krhin is here watching today. We have agreed a fee with Granda, he has had a medical and is now thinking over the move. He will talk to his family over the weekend. Fingers crossed! In regard Craig Gardner, hopefully that will get sorted early next week. Interesting few days ahead, folks. Will discuss transfers at half-time and not during the game, thanks
Hope not (no offence, like...)
Made his comeback after shoulder surgery in the 23s on Tuesday, not made the cut for today's 18, manager's decision.
Somewhere between 12,000 - 14,000 I believe
As in the team news sticky above, Legzdins comes in as Kuszczak has had niggle and similarly Morrison is being protected, he played the last game despite having a groin problem, hence Robinson comes in.
Fabbrini get an opportunity to impress the manager today. It's a slightly different formation for Blues with Gleeson sitting and Kieftenbeld and Davis either side; Fabbrini will be wide right, Adams wide left and Jutkiewicz down the middle. It will be 4-3-3/4-5-1
If it is a draw, the replay will be at St James Park on 18 January
Good afternoon everyone, who is up for the Cup?
