Depends on how much stock you put in Warnocks quotes that he was going to try and convince Clayton to be available

Suppose it also depends on the reason he missed the last game.

Hopefully Britt doesn't repeat his performance from the game at the Riverside....I still can't understand how he missed those two chances...especially the first.....time to redeem yourself...

I thought that Warnock had decided before the last game that Clayton wasn't going to play a part and told him he could therefore miss the game but that he'd probably be available for the final game if Warnock decided to select him?

I thought Clayton was dealing with a 'family issue'.  Warnock said something about that at the weekend, but there was no detail and therefore we have no idea what it actually means.

From the warm-ups looks like we are lining up with a back 4.

Warnock said: "I saw both Adam and Ravel yesterday and said to them that they needn’t be involved, but he (Clayton) would be available on Wednesday if I wanted him.

“He was doing something family-wise, and I said to him, ‘That’s okay’. But I think he’ll be available for Wednesday if I want him to be."

The manager said: “We had a chat yesterday, and I decided it was OK for him to miss the game. His contract is up, and I’m sure it will be discussed with everybody else’s contracts who are up."

Interesting that Warnock hasn’t started Wing yet. I think he was hyped this year and has obviously scored some decent goals but overall contribution not enough.

Probably because of what he saw when he came on as a substitute. Can't remember what game it was, but he came on as a sub and kept passing the ball to the other team

I see Pears is dropped to the bench again? Guess he blew his chance?

Yet another flip in formation.. seems to be every game under warnock, even more so than it was under woodgate 

Howson is suspended, Pears had a bit of a mare last time out and he has gone with Britt over Roberts how does that constitute a flip?

To emphasise the point Warnock has only named 6 subs, he couldn't flip even if he wanted to. By all means criticise him when and where its due but its a bit harsh when he can't even name a full bench and one of those six who is named is a teenager.

He later said:

Quote

On Saturday, Warnock said the veteran midfielder missed the match for personal reasons but in his pre-match press conference, he admits that Clayton has yet to commit to playing against Wednesday.

The 31-year-old is out of contract though reportedly signed a waiver to play in this month’s remaining Championship fixtures.

Asked about Clayton’s availability, Warnock said: “I will speak to Adam. He wasn’t available but I’m going to speak to him later on today about that.”

Yeah, that was why I said assuming it was Warnock who made the decision because I don't think it's quite clear either way.  I don't think he'd have started tonight and I suspect he didn't want to be on the bench so possibly a bit of both.

    • I absolutely did, like I said I was made to feel very welcome and I think we're an asset to utilise. 😊
    • 1. 1-1 2. Same as the Bournemouth, injury dependant.  3. Yes he'll make his debut, if Fletcher is injured I think he'll start. No hat-tricks in this game. 4. Leo will go full Graeme Souness and plant a Boro flag in the centre circle. 5. Power Rangers surely?
    • When - Saturday 26th September, 2020, KO 15:00 Where - The Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium Why - Because it's time for football, duh! So, this bizarre season continues with a trip to QPR, and a ground where we've had very mixed fortunes over the years. Last season we drew 2-2, back when the world was normal. Well as normal as it can be when you have a Wotsit in the White House and Wurzel Gummidge in Number 10, that is. Our Lord and Saviour Neil of Warnock will still be self isolating with Covid-19 for this, so expect to see monseuirs Jepson and Blackwell in the dugout. No idea where Leo is. If anyone has seen him, please return to The Riverside Stadium, Middlesbrough, England, TS3 6RS. Talking points: Score Predictions? Lineup? Will Chuba Akpom make his debut, scoring his first of many hat-tricks for the club? Will Leo appear out of nowhere mid-match, storm onto the pitch and headbutt the ref? Who are the better Rangers? Queen's Park? US Army? Hermione (G)Ranger? Oh and just because it will never not be funny:    
    • Regarding Walker - a long long way from making the grade. If he can do it at this level is more than debatable 
    • Exactly and annoyingly it's most likely that the PL clubs will be affected the least.
