And with a spot to fill in Paul Cook’s line-up, Evans is the man Blues fans want to see recalled to the action.

Otherwise, it is the same XI that beat Barnet 3-1 last weekend.

Evans’ place (66.8 per cent) in an attacking midfield trio is found alongside two-goal Bees hero Conor Chaplin (97.3 per cent) and Kyle Bennett (81 per cent).

The Blues’ back four remains unchanged in the eyes of readers with a regular backline of Ben Davies (96.9 per cent), Christian Burgess (97.3 per cent), Matt Clarke (81 per cent) and Enda Stevens (96.9 per cent) selected.

In holding midfield, skipper Michael Doyle (92 per cent) is paired with Nigel Atangana (84.1 per cent).

Up top, Adam McGurk’s goal and performance in the win against Barnet sees readers stick by him for the lone striker’s role in tomorrow’s Kassam Stadium trip.

With 67.3 per cent of the vote, he is preferred to both Matt Tubbs (24.3 per cent) and the returning Jayden Stockley (8.4 per cent).

Finally, in between the sticks, Brian Murphy (77.7 per cent) gets the nod over Paul Jones (22.3 per cent).
