Pitman and Douglas Start Against Blackburn
Tuesday, 15th Mar 2016 19:10
Brett Pitman and Jonathan Douglas return to the starting line-up for Ben Pringle and Kevin Bru, who drop to the bench, as the Blues face Blackburn Rovers at Portman Road this evening.
Town seem likely to start with a three-man central midfield of Douglas, Cole Skuse and Luke Hyam. With Blackburn playing a diamond formation, Pitman seems likely to play behind front two Freddie Sears and Daryl Murphy.
Kevin Foley comes back on to the bench with Ainsley Maitland-Niles left out of the 18.
Rovers, who are playing their 10th game in 31 days make five changes with Adam Henley, Corry Evans, Chris Brown, Matt Grimes and Simeon Jackson all starting.
Tony Watt, Ben Marshall, Jordi Gomez and Darragh Lenihan move to the bench, while Danny Graham - scorer of four goals in his last two games against Town - is sidelined with a back injury suffered at the weekend.
Town: Bialkowski, Chambers (c), Smith, Berra, Knudsen, Skuse, Hyam, Douglas, Sears, Pitman, Murphy. Subs: Gerken, Digby, Bru, Pringle, Foley, Touré, Varney.
Blackburn: Steele, Henley, Duffy, Hanley (c), Spurr, Evans, Akpan, Grimes, Bennett, Jackson, Brown. Subs: Raya, Watt, Marshall, J Gomez, Ward, Lenihan, Conway. Referee: Iain Williamson (Berkshire).

My grandma claimed to know nothing about football. "Oh, I'll leave you men to talk about the football", she'd say, but she knew alright. She knew exactly what was going on with the Town.

Town have finally dropped through the beckoning trapdoor – but who to blame? Rev Evans with the peeling candlestick? Colonel McCarthy with the fraying rope? Captain Keane with the poisoned dart? Professor Paul with his own interpretation of chaos theory?

They say you learn more from failure than success. Whatever the case, surely you learn more from either than by doing nothing at all.
