United are playing two games tonight, a couple of big names are going to the other fixture, but by far the stronger squad is travelling north, including Fabian Delph, Robinson, Snodgrass, Howson, Marques and Becchio, all of whom are expected to get extended playing time, alongside a couple of trialists anxious to get a contract with one of the biggest clubs outside the top flight.
United have a number of pre season games under their belts now and they remain very ambitious, having turned down a number of big money offers for star players, including Delph (pictured). They are keen to build up some momentum and hit the ground running this season, where they simply HAVE to get promotion. There is great competition for places in this squad and we can expect to see a fairly committed performance from the visitors.
Town played last night, losing 3-0 at home to Scunthorpe, in a local cup tie. However, before we get too carried away by that, they did field a mixture of first and reserve team players, having said that, it will obviously restrict their line up options tonight. Away win.
