One man I`d like to see come back in for the match v Blues

One man I`d like to see come back in for the match v Blues

I`m very confident and excited about what is going to happen for the Reds this weekend.

We`re playing some much better stuff offensively right now and look as though we`re gelling, so I think we could be in for one of our most devastating performances of the campaign.

Certainly, with Birmingham looking short of confidence now we should be able to pile on the pressure on them and Steve Cotterill.

It just goes to show you what the right manager can do, too, and I think Aitor is going to demonstrate that with the right team selection.

One man I`d like to see come back in for this game, then, is Joe Worrall.

He returned to the field as a sub last weekend and it`s clear to me he and Tobias are the men to build our defence around.

Fox has done a good job as a makeshift centre-half - much better than I was expecting - but he is a left-back and Karanka doesn`t strike me as someone happy with shoehorning in players.

Of course, we have Michael Mancienne to call upon but, put it this way, I`ve seen more convincing performances from players this season and I think he should probably go in the summer.

Now Worrall is fit again I can`t see why he won`t be included as we all know how good he can be and with the defensive knowhow of Aitor - rather than that of Warbs - he should flourish.

And, considering our opponents` form this weekend, it could be the perfect game to ease him back in to the side.

We`ve looked better defensively recently - though that wasn`t exactly going to be hard - and I just think we could see close to our full strength back-line if Worrall is restored to the line-up against the Blues.

Agree with me? Let me know if you`d play Worrall in the poll!
