Murphy, Stearman and Edwards Back But N'Daw Misses Out
Saturday, 16th Mar 2013 14:37
Daryl Murphy, Richard Stearman and skipper Carlos Edwards return to the Town side for today’s home game against Bolton Wanderers. Boss Mick McCarthy names only six substitutes with only five of the seven domestic loanees available.
Midfielder Guirane N’Daw misses out for personal reasons, while Elliott Hewitt has a hip problem, Frank Nouble a hamstring injury, while Lee Martin misses the second game of his three-match suspension.
Byron Lawrence, who celebrated his 17th birthday this week, is on the bench for the first time under McCarthy’s management. Aaron Mclean and Reece Brown are the domestic loanees missing out. Full match preview here.

Harry Was Right (Potter, Not the One From Bath). The Only Thing We Should Fear is Fear Itself by commuterblue
I fear nothing in the play-offs. Some say we struggle against the big teams. Given the disappointing results against our northern neighbours this might seem credible. But, objectively, what do this year's results suggest?
The 21st Minute by pablop
On Easter Monday last year I took my 86-year-old father to his first football match. I had recently moved back from Wiltshire to support my ageing parents. Although not ideal, this did enable me to come to regular home matches having only recently seen Town play at Reading, Bristol or Cardiff and very occasionally at Portman Road.
We Love You and This is the Way We Like It by Pickersblue22
Two games. 180 minutes. That’s all it is. All that stands between us and a place in the top six. Another 180 minutes. The chance of a Wembley final. Possibly against our nearest and not so dearest. It’s all in our hands. We can reach out and touch it. Thirteen years of hurt could be ended. We’re almost there.
Sorry Folks! by stevieiriswattii
For 25 years I have been away from the area and only able to attend a game or so a season, this was after previously being a season ticket holder in the late 80s.
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.
