There were rumors that Enda Stevens would be on the bench. I'm (Robert) sad to see that those were not true. Still an interesting bench though. Hate seeing Heskey back in while Gardner and Weimann have to wait though.

Be sure to follow us on twitter throughout the match (@7500toHolte), where Robert will have all of the action.
