Carson Trained With Cobblers
Tuesday, 29th Jan 2013 10:42
Midfielder Josh Carson spent Friday and Saturday training with League Two Northampton, but we understand he is still to hear whether he impressed manager Aidy Boothroyd. The Cobblers are one of a number of clubs interested in taking the Northern Ireland international on loan.
Last week, Blues boss Mick McCarthy said Carson would benefit from a spell away from Portman Road: “A few would like to have Josh Carson on loan and that would be something I would be open to.
“I think he needs to go and play some football. He’s just a young lad learning his trade and travelling with us and training with us is not good enough for him, he needs to play. So that might happen.”
The 19-year-old, who played in central midfield for the U21s at Brighton last night, a role he regularly filled when in the academy, is contracted to the Blues until the summer of 2014.
Another player who could move out on loan before the transfer window closes is right-back Jack Ainsley, who recently travelled to Preston to train with the League One side but was with the Lancastrians only very briefly as they instead added Leeds full-back Paul Connolly to their squad on loan.
We understand Ainsley was close to joining Capital One Cup finalists Bradford earlier in the season but the move was halted when the change of manager took place at Portman Road with new boss Mick McCarthy keen to look at all the players at his disposal.

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!
Crunch Time - Next Two Games Likely to Decide our Fate by Pickersblue22
This is undoubtedly the most exciting time to be an Ipswich Town supporter in a decade. For the first time since the days of Joe Royle, we have a chance of promotion, possibly automatic. Being sat in sixth place with seven games left, the task is in our own hands.
Promotion Push by akjlitfc
As we reach the final eight games of the season, the slump in form that we hoped would be brief has become persistent, warranting questioning from fans and pundits alike.
