Blues fans were unable to give their take on whether they wanted new goalkeeper Ryan Fulton to start in between the posts, though, as voting opened before the afternoon arrival of the Liverpool teenager.

That meant regular stopper Brian Murphy (93.6 per cent) was preferred to youngster Alex Bass (6.4 per cent), although it remains to be seen whether Cook will throw Fulton straight into the action.

At the back, familiar faces Ben Davies (100 per cent), Christian Burgess (67 per cent), Adam Webster (91.3 per cent) and Enda Stevens (95.7 per cent) were all selected with Matt Clarke (41.7 per cent) unfortunate to miss out.

Barton (92.2 per cent), was the overwhelming favourite to partner skipper Doyle (98.3 per cent) in the engine room.

While attacking-midfield trio Gareth Evans (93 per cent), Kyle Bennett (95.7 per cent) and Gary Roberts (94.8 per cent) got the nod to provide the supply for lone striker Marc McNulty (90.4 per cent).
