Smith in Team of the Week
Monday, 4th Feb 2013 17:07
Centre-half Tommy Smith has been named in this week’s Football League Championship Team of the Week after his two-goal display in the Blues’ 4-0 victory over Middlesbrough at Portman Road on Saturday. Several other players with Town connections, including Smith’s close friend Jordan Rhodes, are also named in the select XI.
Rhodes, who is set to face his old club and Smith for the first time when the Blues travel to Blackburn next Saturday, scored twice as Rovers beat Bristol City 2-0.
Right-back Bradley Orr, who is also set to come up against Town next week having recently returned to Ewood Park, is also named, as is another ex-loanee David Stockdale, who is now with Hull for another temporary spell.
Derby central defender Richard Keogh is a former Town academy schoolboy and ballboy.
Team of the Week: David Stockdale (Hull City), Bradley Orr (Blackburn), Richard Keogh (Derby), Tommy Smith (Town), Andrew Taylor (Cardiff), Chris Burke (Birmingham), Craig Bryson (Derby), Almen Abdi (Watford), Tommy Rowe (Peterborough), Jordan Rhodes (Blackburn), Glenn Murray (Crystal Palace).

Season Preview by tractordownsouth
Just like every season, we made our pre-season predictions last summer and just like every season we were wrong. Giants fell, minnows prospered and ten managers were axed, the pressure of returning their club to the financial utopia of the Premier League so great that the board of directors were ruthless and often reckless.
A Lack of Spending Will Curtail Progress by Nuggets
At a time when Fulham have just spent £11m on a striker with no Premiership experience, it's a little disconcerting to see Mick McCarthy announce that the club are relying on freebies and borrowed players once again this term.
Where Do Mick's Intentions Lay? by Mullet
The transfer window is barely open and the club isn't so much gently sucking in the fresh air of inevitable squad change, but blowing out the cobwebs with gusts of activity.
At All Costs? by RaymondovicBlue
OK, so Luis Suarez is an amazing football player. But for his return to fitness and brilliance we might still be in the World Cup! ('might' is a big word).
