Dean and Christophe to start but Ty misses out

Dean Gerken and Christophe Berra will make their debuts for Blues in the Capital One cup tie at Stevenage but Tyrone Mings and Ryan Tunnicliffe miss out. 

Ryan, on loan from Manchester United until January, has not been given permission to play by his parent club while Tyrone is sidelined with a knee injury sustained in Saturday’s defeat by Reading. 

“Ty could be out for two or three weeks and that’s a real shame for the lad and for us,” Town boss Mick McCarthy told the Club website.

“He was excellent against Reading especially as he played 76 minutes after opening up his medial ligament. That just confirmed what I knew about him. He’s a top lad and tough as old boots.”

Mick also confirmed that Dean will Christophe start for Blues tomorrow night. 

“There will be a few changes and those two will play,” he added. “I told the players beforehand that we will be changing things around but we are going there to win as we do every game.”
