Orr and Martin in for Town at Leicester
Saturday, 17th Nov 2012 14:11
Bradley Orr makes his Town debut and Lee Martin returns to the side as Mick McCarthy makes two changes to his team for today’s game at Leicester.
Loanee Orr comes in at right-back with Tommy Smith dropping to the bench and Luke Chambers switching to centre-half.
Arran Lee-Barrett is on the bench in the absence of Scott Loach, who misses out with the thigh injury he sustained at Walsham. Luke Hyam’s reward for an impressive display against the Thurlow Nunn League side is a place amongst the subs, alongside summer signing Elliott Hewitt.
Martin is back after his one-match ban in place of Richie Wellens, who has returned to the Foxes at the end of his loan, but isn’t in Nigel Pearson’s 18.
Leicester are unchanged from their 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest last week. Full match preview here.
Town: Henderson, Orr, Chambers, Higginbotham, Cresswell, Edwards (c), N'Daw, Reo-Coker, Martin, Murphy, Campbell. Subs: Lee-Barrett, Hewitt, Smith, Hyam, Mohsni, Emmanuel-Thomas, Chopra
Leicester: Schmeichel, De Laet, Drinkwater, Morgan (c), Whitbread, King, Dyer, Waghorn, Schlupp, Knockaert, Nugent. Subs: Vardy, Marshall, Logan, James, Moore, Lingard, Futacs.

14 Years in the Second Tier But Be Careful What You Wish For by ORomeoZondervan
It is true, Ipswich have spent 14 consecutive years in the second tier of English football. Some would be quite proud of this achievement but others view this as abject failure, point to others' successes and believe a change at top is the answer.
However, I think some perspective is required.

All Aboard the Directorship by Bluetaff
I look forward to the start of each new season with such vim and vigour - with the possible exception of this one, oddly.
