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, What is Your Next Move? Or Are You Out of Ideas? by Pickersblue22
Ipswich Town are facing a defining period. We thought last season was bad. It was, but it looks good in comparison to this one. We may only be 11 games in, but the signs suggest that things will get worse before they get better.
