I'd go with a 4-3-3 on Wednesday. Same team as the weekend but I'd drop Spence and Johnson for Roberts and push Tav out on the left and have Morsy dropping into the 3 man midfield of Saville and Howson. (So not the same team as the weekend). Let Morsy and Howson sit deeper and give Saville a bit of a license to press higher up the pitch. The defence picks itself at the moment.
Not having Spence on the right may weaken us a bit defensively on that side, but Dijksteel is more the capable of covering that flank with a bit of help from Fry and Howson. We should be looking at this game as a game we can win and with that in mind I think we can afford to sacrifice that defensive solidity in the attempt to maybe score a goal (hopefully 2 goals) against a very out of sorts Derby side.
Our strikers are rubbish - the fact is they need multiple chances - and still they rarely convert. We will get nothing for Britt, I could not see him leaving in January as I doubt any club would be interested in engaging anywhere near what he is supposedly on. Akpom Is I’m afraid, a limited player and not the answer to our striking problems. And that leaves the injured Fletcher. It is a pathetic collection of strikers.
