Leddy and U18s Looking Forward to Burnley Clash
Thursday, 12th Jan 2012 16:27
Academy midfielder Jonathan Leddy says the young Blues are looking forward to their FA Youth Cup fourth round tie against Burnley at Turf Moor on Friday evening (KO 7pm). The U18s beat Leeds 2-0 in the third round at Portman Road.
The Republic of Ireland U17 international , who travelled to Lancashire with the rest of the squad this afternoon, told the club site: "All the lads are really looking forward to the game and hopefully we can get a good result.
“We've been struggling a little bit in the league this season but the Youth Cup is our main focus and we're all fired up for the game.
"It will be a new experience for us, as we are away from Portman Road this time, but it won't faze us and everyone is fit and raring to go."
A win will see Russell Osman’s boys take on Reading or West Bromwich Albion away in the fifth round.
Squad: Conor O’Donnell, Dan O’Neil, David October, Aaron Jones, Joe Whight, Callum Bennett, Jideofo Maduako, Nicolay Schrøder, Lewis Acott, Jonathan Leddy, Shaun Meikle, Gunnar Thorsteinnssen, Elliot Scotcher, Mark Timlin, Byron Lawrence, Jack Simmons, Tom Winter, Jack Marriott, Carel Tiofack.

Pessimistic Portman Road by akjlitfc
Being born in 1999, and with my first game at Portman Road coming at the age of six, I have skipped the Town's most recent stint in top flight football a mere 13 seasons ago. This, as is expected, suggests that I have never seen glory in my time as a football fan.
Ten Games, Ten Honest Questions by JollyJourno
There's ten games of the season remaining. Town are one point off the play-off places and five off the top of the league. But we've only won one of our last five games, and something's not right. Time to ask some honest questions of this team, before it's too late.
