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 by BackTheBlues
This isn’t your usual please for unity, I think the ship has sailed on that venture! But rather a plea for the sake of the status of our club.
From Nothing to Something - And Back Again? by monty_radio
On the diamond jubilee of the rise of Ipswich Town from the old Third Division (South) we tremble on the edge of the abyss into which Coventry City have already fallen and have not yet hit the bottom.
It Really Could Be Worse by Superfrans
Instead of trekking all the way to Cardiff this weekend, I decided to go and watch my local team. Leyton Orient were playing Doncaster Rovers, bottom vs top in League Two.
Views of a Young(ish) Town Fan by tractorboy2000
After seeing the new season ticket prices, I felt like writing something would be a good form of therapy to get some things off my chest about Ipswich.
Two Defensive? by rickw
After our most recent bore-draw against Wolves I wondered if playing two defensive midfielders (DM) was just a personal gripe of mine and we actually got better results playing them or the stats backed up what I and I'm sure many other fans think - we shouldn't play two defensive-minded midfielders together.
