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).

End of Season Grades by BlueBloke
Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
Away Day Report: Reading by BlueBloke
I wake up at 5.30am. I’d like to say it was in anticipation of watching the Town. Sadly, it owes rather a greater deal to an abhorrently early alarm on Tuesday morning and a very late night on Thursday. Still, now that I’m conscious I may as well start thinking about the day ahead.
On This Day - Saturday 28th April 1962 by clivebleedingthomas
As a 15-year-old I make my way to Portman Road full of anticipation and anxiety. Our rivals, Burnley, are playing at home to already relegated Chelsea. A home win must be on the cards. On the following Tuesday they will play their game in hand against Sheffield Wednesday. However, Town are top of Division One and facing Aston Villa.
An Open Application for the Ipswich Manager's Position by BaltachaFanClub
I am already sick of the fiasco involving our new leader, the interview with our owner and all that goes with it, so I thought I should make a light-hearted, open application for the job my (fictional) self.
