The game starts at 1500, apparently, and Roy has named the starting 11 as follows:
Pantsil Hughes Hangeland Kelly
Riise Gera Etuhu Baird Duff
Stockdale, Smalling, Anderson, Ki-Hyeon, Saunders, Kamara, E. Johnson
(Not really sure if that's the formation, but that's my best guess based on the players.)
So it looks like a defensive lineup - unless Duff is playing along side Nevland -- with E. Johnson and Kamara on the bench if needed.
I think this is a wise thing Roy's doing. He's taking a slight risk of losing the game, but why take chances on astro-turf (notorious for injuries) with the star players. Most of the defense is still in tact, so if the boys close down the passing, they should be able to win this game.
