Smith and New Boys in U23s Facing Watford at Portman Road
Monday, 6th Feb 2017 11:44
Tommy Smith and recent signings Kieffer Moore, Danny Rowe and Dominic Samuel are all included in the squad for this evening’s U23s game against Watford at Portman Road (KO 7pm), while Teddy Bishop and Myles Kenlock could also be involved.
Centre-half Smith will be playing his first match as he continues his recovery from the back surgery he underwent in September.
Winger Rowe, signed from Macclesfield, and striker Samuel, on loan from Reading, will be making their first appearances in Town shirts, while fellow frontman Moore, who has played two games from the bench for the senior side having joined from Forest Green Rovers earlier in the transfer window, will be making his U23s debut.
Bishop has played the last two U23s games having overcome his ankle injury and came off the bench late on during Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Reading.
Kenlock is on the way back after the calf injury he suffered at QPR at the start of January.
Entry to the Cobbold Stand is available on the gate at £3 for adults and £1 for concessions with season ticket holders admitted for free.

Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too.

A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
