Alabi on Target But U21s Lose at Birmingham
Monday, 14th Sep 2015 15:29
Town’s U21s lost 3-1 at Birmingham City this afternoon, striker James Alabi having put the Blues in front in the 31st minute.
The home side hit back after the break with Alex Jones netting on 62, Reece Brown four minutes later and Jones again on 79.
The Town side included Kevin Bru and Teddy Bishop, who are on their way back from their hamstring injuries, and recent signing Tommy Oar.
Speaking at lunchtime, manager Mick McCarthy expected the trio to be involved with the senior side facing Birmingham on Friday and in the Capital One Cup tie at Old Trafford next Wednesday.
“Into the squad [for Friday] and certainly for the cup tie at Manchester United. That’s probably worthwhile them getting fit for that one, isn’t it?”
Starting in goal was first-year scholar Harry Wright, much to his father Richard's delight.
U21s: Wright, Fowler, Kenlock, McDonnell, Woolfenden, Robinson (c), Connolly, Bru, Alabi, Bishop, Oar. Subs: Hayes, Dozzell, Ramadan.

Where Did It All Go Wrong for Paul Hurst? by Herbivore
The dust has not yet settled on the reign of Town's shortest-serving permanent manager, a reign the significance and memorability of which is likely to be more dependent on our post-Paul Hurst fate than on his mere 14 league games in charge.
Expectations of Paul Lambert's Ipswich by radiogaga
I, my brother and my father have gone to watch Ipswich for a decent stretch of time between now, albeit not as long as many of you. My first game was back in 1998, as a 1-0 home defeat as Bolton and Bob Taylor stunned us in injury time.
An Open Application for the Ipswich Manager's Position by BaltachaFanClub
With the Town job up for grabs once again, I thought I should make a light-hearted, open application for the job my (fictional) self.
