McCarthy Missing as Blues Face Boro
Saturday, 2nd Feb 2013 14:38
Blues boss Mick McCarthy misses today’s home game against Middlesbrough due to the virus which has affected him this week. However, he is understood to have picked the team with Scott Loach keeping his place in goal, Lee Martin out with a hamstring injury and Richard Stearman making his debut.
Aaron Mclean comes into the side in place of Martin with Daryl Murphy likely to switch to left midfield.
New loan signing Stephen Henderson and this week’s permanent addition Anthony Wordsworth are on the bench.
Former Blues Kieron Dyer and Grant Leadbitter are in Tony Mowbray and Mark Venus’s Boro team. The former England man may well start in the right wing-back role he occupied in his early days with the Blues. Full match preview here.
Town: Loach, Stearman, Chambers, Smith, Cresswell, Edwards, Hyam, N'Daw, Murphy, Mclean, McGoldrick. Subs: Henderson, Hewitt, Kisnorbo, Drury, Wordsworth, Nouble, Chopra.
Middlesbrough: Steele, Friend, Dyer, Bikey, Woodgate, Williams, Leadbitter, Haroun, Ledesma, Emnes, Jutkiezicz. Subs: Ripley, Bailey, Hines, McEachran, Carayol, Parnaby, Reach.

Happy Dappy Doo by paulthebluealien
Right, let's cut straight to the chase. There are far too many people posting happy stuff on this forum; it's annoying me so I'm going to bring us all crashing back down to earth by being negative.
Isn't This Lovely? by Luka
We have a headache, though we don't need paracetamol. The headache is one of selection. Who to put in? Where? How do we line up?
Mick McCarthy: Man-Management 101 by everhopeful
It’s October 2012. We knew it would happen the second Stephen Henderson's error saw Derby go in level at the break.
Time for a Change? by therealtractorboy
For the last seven years of my life I have made the trip to see Ipswich Town every other Saturday. Every August, I hope. Every Saturday at 2:55, I hope. This season, for a very much welcome change, these hopes may not be shattered.
