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 Plea to Mick: Don't Hold Us Back by Pickersblue22
After nearly four years, we know exactly what we get. Mick McCarthy arrived in November 2012 with the club at a low ebb. He lifted us from a dreary, uninspiring outfit, consistently languishing in mid-table, to the surprising, joyful, wonderful highs of 2014/15.
Far East Anglians by Marcus
I’ve never really liked the term ‘Far East’ as it tends to conjure images of China and Japan rather than the plethora of different countries and cultures in South East Asia. However, for the sake of it, ‘Far East Anglians’ works quite well to indicate Town (and the other lot's) supporters here in Asia.

It's fair to say that despite having no expectations, the start of the season hasn't gone to plan so far for Mick McCarthy. Quite clearly six points from six and progression to the second round of the EFL Cup would have been the aim before a ball was kicked - it's fair to say we've been a little off in that respect.
