Delaney Back In The Side

Last updated : 02 October 2004 By Andy Beill
After losing on penalties at Victoria Park on Tuesday, Peter Taylor has refreshed his side again.

Damien Delaney returns after knee surgery, partnering Junior Lewis in central defence. Andy Dawson is also recalled after Roland Edge was given a chance at left-back for the LDV Trophy defeat. Edge is on the bench along with fellow defender Leon Cort.

Goalkeeper Matt Duke makes his first league start in place of Boaz Myhill. He's suspended following his red card in midweek, meaning City have no keeper on the bench.

Danny Allsopp and Aaron Wilbraham are recalled up front. Delroy Facey drops to the bench, while Jon Walters isn't even in the matchday squad.

Stuart Green keeps his place, while top scorer Stuart Elliott is back in the starting eleven on the opposite wing. Jason Price - who scored the opener on Tuesday - is on the bench.

Marc Joseph and Nick Barmby are still out with hamstring and ankle injuries respectively.

City line-up (4-4-2): Duke; Thelwell, Lewis, Delaney, Dawson; Green, Ashbee, Keane, Elliott; Allsopp, Wilbraham.
Subs: Edge, Cort, France, Price, Facey.
