|Edwards Skippers Town at Pompey|
Tuesday, 14th Feb 2012 18:58
Carlos Edwards skippers Town for the first time as Paul Jewell names the expected side for tonight’s game at Portsmouth. Damien Delaney replacing the injured Ibrahima Sonko is the only change from the team which started the victories over West Ham and Coventry and the abandoned game against Middlesbrough at the weekend.
Jack Ainsley comes on to a bench which is otherwise unchanged. Josh Carson and Ryan Stevenson travelled but aren’t involved.
Portsmouth are unchanged from the side which drew 1-1 at Blackpool at the weekend with all three January Town targets starting. Full match preview here.
Town: Lee-Barrett, Edwards (C), Delaney, Smith, Cresswell, Drury, Hyam, Martin, Emmanuel-Thomas, Murphy, Chopra. Subs: McCarthy, Ainsley, Leadbitter, Bullard, Scotland.
Portsmouth: Henderson, Halford, Pearce, Rocha, Ben-Haim, Ward, Lawrence (C), Mullins, Etuhu, Huseklepp, Futacs. Subs: Ashdown, Mokoena, Benjani, Webster, Kitson.

Does Carlos have a contract?
Does PJ take the captaincy seriously (as it should) ?
|blue979 added 19:09 - Feb 14|
edwards is a good player,lets see if he can be a great captain.
|jas0999 added 19:12 - Feb 14|
Odd making a player captain when his current deal is due to expire soon and no doubt in discussions with other clubs. Why did we sign the Hearts guy? Not needed. We desperately wanted a CB. Odd. Carson - he really must have annoyed PJ - a so called arm round the shoulder manager (clearly not!).
Anyway, good luck to the players tonight. I still think we will win. Should do anyway.

Drury or Martin would have made better capts!

Is Edwards the right man to DRIVE the team on ?
|JewellintheTown added 19:37 - Feb 14|
@RAH4 - as long as he keeps MOTORING on in a ROUDABOUT way, then AUDI be the captain, FORD a seeable future. As long as he INDICATES he wants to stay then ... oh you get the puns, I give up.

Jewellinthetown you need shooting for that !! but don't worry would only half (50%) kill you .....company policy you know.
|footyblue added 19:44 - Feb 14|
More stupidity from Jewell he can't even hold his position
|Dissboyitfc added 19:50 - Feb 14|
blue979.. yes carlos is a good player in midfield, but sadly not a good right back and jas makes a fair point here, how focused is he going to be on ipswich if he is speaking to other clubs... coyb
|warksonwater added 20:07 - Feb 14|
Yes! Nice start! But we know by now not to hold our breath.........
|Karlosfandangal added 20:39 - Feb 14|
Moan moan maon moan moan moan
No matter what the club Jewell or Clegg does it wrong.
Go watch Norwich

my feeling is, captainacy is overrated. You need all 11 players to be vocal not just one.
|lawshallgirls added 21:09 - Feb 14|
Carlos certainly drives fast enough!
|TractorBoy666 added 21:46 - Feb 14|
1-0! Great result. Should be clear of relegation now :)
|Dozzells_Bobblehat added 21:52 - Feb 14|
Hmmm , jas and walberswick, this is tricky, how do we turn this into a negative??. Three points, clean sheet................oh I know, Jewell your an idiot for allowing all those bookings, and u clegg , your both to blame.
|oddball added 21:57 - Feb 14|
Wow, do football fans ever stop moaning, moan, groan, whinge, gripe, weird.
|Dissboyitfc added 22:00 - Feb 14|
a great 3 points and an unexpected clean sheet... coyb
|warksonwater added 22:07 - Feb 14|
Three wins in a row, two of them away. Obviously don't want to get carried away, but could we altogether rule out a late surge for the playoffs?
|Karlosfandangal added 22:11 - Feb 14|
dont go mad now I will be happy to get half way
They will moan about Leadbetter making the bench instead of Carson
|DikkieCOYB added 22:18 - Feb 14|
I know this is a random question but does anyone know if we recieved a fee when darren bent moved from tottenham to sunderland, and whem he moved from sunderland to villa. just a question
|DikkieCOYB added 22:20 - Feb 14|
does anyone know if ipswich recieveda fee when bent moved fro spurs to sunderland and then when he went to villa
|michaeldownunder added 22:32 - Feb 14|

Also well played Smith and Delaney, I know it's only one game but a clean sheet is a clean sheet. anyone on this site eating humble pie for supper?
