Scotland Training With Notts County
Friday, 25th Jan 2013 09:38
Former Blue Jason Scotland is training with League One Notts County while he looks for a new club, his Town contract having been settled at the weekend. Sheffield Wednesday manager Dave Jones has refused to confirm or deny his interest in the 33-year-old.
Yesterday, Coventry boss Mark Robins ruled out a move for Scotland after discussions had taken place with the Sky Blues.
Owls manager Jones - who sent ex-Town youngster Caolan Lavery out on loan to Southend United earlier this week - was questioned about the strikers he is targeting but wouldn’t be drawn on their identities: “One player we spoke to has gone to another Championship club; he got paid up [by his club], and it was done.”
That player is unlikely to be Scotland as the ex-Trinidad and Tobago international is yet to find a new club but he may well be on their list of potential recruits. Doncaster, Wolves, Barnsley, Brighton and Preston have also shown interest in Scotland since he fell out of favour at Portman Road.
Elsewhere, Blues striker Michael Chopra will learn the outcome of his British Horseracing Authority hearing into alleged race-fixing at around noon today.
Meanwhile, Luton Town have trained in the Blues’ Playford Road dome for the last couple of days as they prepare for their FA Cup fourth round tie at Norwich on Saturday.
Hatters boss Paul Buckle says Blues manager Mick McCarthy has helped him out before in similar circumstances: “I know Mick and he has been good to me in the past. We trained at Wolves once when he was manager there.
“It was a late shout but they have helped us out and we really needed this preparation as we are playing a Premier League side.”

Looking back on this season and most of us would admit Ipswich reached or exceeded our expectations, but after coming so close to success we are now all hungry for more - and for Ipswich to take that next step and challenge for automatic promotion.
Looking Ahead: 2015/16 Season - Where Do We Need to Strengthen? by GeorgeITFC24
We as a club have some quality players in some crucial positions on the pitch. Most notably our strikers and centre-backs are probably the best in the league.
Don't Look Back in Anger by everhopeful
After the heartache comes the reflection. For a second, we had a glimpse of the Premier League. Just a glimpse – and it was as beautiful as we remembered. It reignited that spark of hope in all our hearts, the dream that, one day, we might find a better place to play. But for now, Sally can wait.

As I write, I can’t help but feel utter dejection - and I’m sure every person reading this will be in the same situation.
Where Did it Go Wrong? Play-Off Semi-Finals by GeorgeITFC24
We all will be forced to remember the excruciatingly disappointing end to the 2014/15 season. 4-2 on aggregate we lost to that lot up the road. We pretty much nailed it at home with the 1-1 draw. We kept them at bay and matched them in every area. But away at Carrow Road it all just fell apart. But why exactly?
