Five Changes as Blues Face Preston
Saturday, 4th Nov 2017 14:29
David McGoldrick, Martyn Waghorn, Callum Connolly, Adam Webster and Jordan Spence return to the Town side for this afternoon’s home game against Preston North End.
Dominic Iorfa, Grant Ward and Kevin Bru drop to the bench having started at Cardiff in midweek, while Tommy Smith and Flynn Downes are left out of the 18.
McGoldrick, Waghorn and Bersant Celina look set to play behind lone out-and-out frontman Joe Garner, who will be facing his old club. On-loan Everton man Connolly, primarily a defender, seems set to start in central midfield alongside Cole Skuse.
Irish international striker Sean Maguire is the latest player to join Preston’s injury crisis having suffered a hamstring injury with six defenders already sidelined.
Town: Bialkowski, Spence, Chambers (c), Webster, Knudsen, Skuse, Connolly, Waghorn, McGoldrick, Celina, Garner. Subs: Gerken, Iorfa, Ward, Sears, Nydam, Bru, Kenlock.
Preston: Maxwell, Fisher, Huntington (c), Boyle, O’Connor, Welsh, Barkhuizen, Pearson, Browne, Johnson, Hugill. Subs: Hudson, Vermijl, Horgan, Harrop Gallagher, Mavididi, Robinson. Referee: Andy Madley (West Yorkshire).

Pre-Derby Hope and Hype by TimS
I hate the phrase 'Old Farm derby'. There are plenty of patronising phrases that have, and are still thrown at me when I talk about our club, but the 'Old Farm derby' degenerates our derby into nothing more than a Country Show debate over who has the biggest tractor. Quaint, sweet but slightly pathetic, not understood by anyone outside East Anglia.

Yesterday's result at the Macron against Bolton and the subsequent press conference with Mick McCarthy reminds me of the U2 song- Stuck in a Moment. Marcus Evans:
Consumer Rights by Slambo
As the latest episode of teeth gnashing and breast rending progresses we Ipswich Town supporters need to ask ourselves what kind of fan we want to be.
