Town Unchanged at Leeds
Saturday, 15th Dec 2012 14:03
As expected, boss Mick McCarthy has named an unchanged side for today's game at Leeds. Nigel Reo-Coker, back after a hamstring injury, is on the bench.
Also amongst the subs is Bilel Mohsni, the on-loan Southend man benefiting from Tyrone Barnett's injury. The French-Tunisian has been the unlucky sixth domestic loanee omitted from recent squads with only five permitted in the matchday 18.
New signing Tyrone Mings was in the 21-man travelling party but is not in the final squad. Josh Carson and Ronan Murray also made the trip but are not involved, perhaps suggesting that the Irish U21 international is now ahead of Jason Scotland in the pecking order.
The Leeds line-up includes former Town skipper David Norris. Full match preview here.
Leeds: Kenny, Peltier, Byram, Lees, Tate, Green, Tonge, Norris, Thomas, Becchio, Diouf. Subs: Ashdown, Pearce, Varney, White, Brown, Hall, McCormack.
Town: Henderson, Orr, Chambers, Smith, Cresswell, Edwards, N'Daw, Drury, Martin, Murphy, Campbell. Subs: Loach, Hewitt, Higginbotham, Reo-Coker, Mohsni, Emmanuel-Thomas, Chopra.

Mick McCarthyâ€™s Magic Method by realprojection
In the modern football world, most match reports are adorned by a plethora of stats that may (or may not) tell us something extra about the relative performance of each team â€“ eg BBC reports show shots, shots on target, possession and fouls.
We Couldn't Wish for an Easier Run of Games by BossMan
With the team currently out of form I reckon the upcoming set of fixtures up to the end of January couldn't look much better for us (based merely on the league table as of this morning).
Are Our Goalkeepers Both the Same? by BlueRaider
Many fans seem to think there is little to choose between our goalkeepers, I disagree.
Mick Not the Man for Town (Part Two) by BossMan
Last August I wrote a blog suggesting that Mick was the wrong man for the job, despite the fact that he had just signed a new three-year deal.
What Do We Expect of Our Club? by DurhamTownFan
A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog on the subject of Townâ€™s playing style under Mick McCarthy. Having been humbled at Old Trafford, I wanted to see how everyone felt about what I perceived to be a rather attritional and outdated brand of football seen here and in pretty much every other Ipswich game since McCarthy arrived.
