Mings Makes Debut at Burnley
Saturday, 4th May 2013 11:58
Tyrone Mings will make his debut for the Blues in Mick McCarthy’s promised much-changed side at Burnley this afternoon (KO 12.45pm). Academy second-year scholar Jack Marriott is on the bench.
The December signing from Chippenham Town starts at left-back with Patrick Kisnorbo making his full league debut for the Blues at the centre of the defence alongside Tommy Smith. Scott Loach is in goal and Richard Stearman is at right-back.
Aaron Cresswell, who if he plays the full game will have completed every minute of Town’s season, will start on the left of midfield with Anthony Wordsworth and Luke Hyam in the centre and skipper Carlos Edwards on the right. Frank Nouble and Daryl Murphy are again up front.
Midfielder Andy Drury, who we understand has been told be won't be offered new terms by the Blues this summer, didn't travel with the squad with his partner expecting a baby.
Michael Chopra, Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, Reece Brown and Jason Brown all travelled - and made a brief pre-match appearance in the Burnley pressroom - but aren't included in the 18. Full match preview here.
Shortly before kick-off, you can join other Town fans in our chatroom to discuss the match. The chatroom is open to anyone registered on TWTD and match photos will be published there when available. You can find it here and it should work in any browser or on any device.
Town: Loach, Stearman, Kisnorbo, Smith, Mings, Edwards, Hyam, Wordsworth, Cresswell, Nouble, Murphy. Subs: Lee-Barrett, Hewitt, Chambers, Tabb, N'Daw, Martin, Marriott.
Burnley: Grant, Lafferty, Shackell, Long, Trippier, Stock, Marney, McCann, Vokes, Ings, Paterson. Subs: Jensen, O'Neill, Howieson, Hewitt, Stanislas, Bartley, Wallace.

A Turning Point? by stevieiriswattii
With the walk out of some Liverpool supporters last weekend and the news that Liverpool FC are scrapping the now infamous £77 ticket, is there about to be a sea change in the way supporters are treated?
Money Doesn't Guarantee Success? by wadey
Due to all the arguments about not spending money on players and other people saying 'spending doesn't guarantee success', I decided to do some research. I've looked at every club that has been promoted since we were relegated in 2002.
Luke Chambers Will Be a Town Legend by Pickersblue22
As one of the greatest leaders in Premier League history announces he is leaving English football a the end of the season, I think it appropriate to pay tribute to our very own Captain Fantastic.
Is the Game Now Too Rich for Marcus Evans? by itfcjoe
As Ipswich look to be leaving the January transfer window with a weaker squad than the one they entered it with, it leads me to question what is Marcus Evans’s plan for the football club.
Time for a Break? by Bluetaff
As strong winds and torrential rain batter the UK, we enjoy again another wet and dreary winter. Long gone are the visions of a white and frosty Christmas so often played out in annual offerings from Hollywood.
