Town Again Watch Howells
Friday, 13th Jan 2012 08:41
Town were amongst a number of clubs at Kenilworth Road to watch Luton’s Jake Howells in action as the Hatters beat Stockport 1-0 on Tuesday. The 20-year-old left-back or left midfielder is a player the Blues have been monitoring since last season with Charlton and Peterborough also understood to be interested.
After a spell as a youngster at Watford, Hemel Hempstead-born Howells progressed through the ranks at Luton and is contracted to the Hatters until the summer of 2012.
The 20-year-old has made 113 starts and 39 sub appearances, scoring 14 goals, since making his Hatters first team bow in May 2008.
In addition to three Wales U21 caps, Howells has also made four England C (non-league national side) appearances, scoring one goal.
Meanwhile, Blues boss Paul Jewell may be interested to see that his former Wigan winger David Cotterill has been released by Swansea.
Wales international Cotterill, 24, began his career at Bristol City, Jewell taking him to the Latics for £2 million in August 2006. He joined the Swans from Sheffield United for £600,000 in January 2010.

We Love You and This is the Way We Like It by Pickersblue22
Two games. 180 minutes. That’s all it is. All that stands between us and a place in the top six. Another 180 minutes. The chance of a Wembley final. Possibly against our nearest and not so dearest. It’s all in our hands. We can reach out and touch it. Thirteen years of hurt could be ended. We’re almost there.
Sorry Folks! by stevieiriswattii
For 25 years I have been away from the area and only able to attend a game or so a season, this was after previously being a season ticket holder in the late 80s.
Cole Skuse, In the Middle of Our Pitch by everhopeful
The ball is shifted sideways. There’s space to go forwards, space to meet it, space to shoot. But just as people all around Portman Road begin to lift up in their seats, they realise with an upsetting sense of inevitability – it’s Cole Skuse.
Is It All Over? by paulthebluealien
Sorry, that title is meant to be completely tongue-in-cheek and a slight dig at those Ipswich fans who have suddenly become disillusioned with our promotion push over the course of a single game.
A Day to Define History by RaymondovicBlue
As we celebrate the day Christians say defined history - our beloved Town take on high flying Bournemouth in the game that will surely define our season - and possibly theirs. They are high flying and I'll be looking to the Sky... as I sit in front of the TV in the home of many Bournemouth fans to shout for my team!
