Iorfa's Return Only Change Against Forest
Saturday, 2nd Dec 2017 14:24
Dominic Iorfa comes back into the team for suspended skipper Luke Chambers as the Blues face Nottingham Forest at Portman Road.
Iorfa looks set to start at right-back with Jordan Spence joining Adam Webster at the centre of the defence.
Otherwise the Blues are unchanged from the team which won 1-0 at Derby on Tuesday. Myles Kenlock is on the bench having overcome a hamstring injury which saw him miss training earlier in the week.
Like Chambers, Flynn Downes is also banned for one game having picked up his fifth booking.
Forest include ex-Blues striker Daryl Murphy from the start and former loanee Stephen Henderson on the bench. They make one change from the team which lost 2-0 at Cardiff last weekend with Liam Bridcutt returning from suspension and replacing Barrie McKay in midfield.
Town: Bialkowski, Iorfa, Spence, Webster, Knudsen, Skuse (c), Connolly, Ward, Huws, Celina, Waghorn. Subs: Gerken, Bishop, Sears, Nydam, Bru, Kenlock, Morris.
Forest: Smith, Lichaj, Mancienne (c), Traore, Bridcutt, Murphy, Osborn, Dowell, Vaughan, Walker, Worrall. Subs: Henderson, Mills, McKay, Clough, Carayol, Bouchalakis, Cummings. Referee: Darren Bond (Lancashire).

Six Was the Best by SpiritOfJohn
When Kevin Beattie's book, The Beat, was published in 1998 there were a few informal signing sessions arranged. As I was a schoolboy in the 70s, Kevin was a footballing hero of mine, so I thought I would brave the crowds and get in the queue for his autograph at Brannigan's in Ipswich. My Mum was also a big fan, so we decided to get there early and wait in line.
By Any Means Unnecessary by DazC
If there's one lesson that should be learned from Ipswich's match against Brentford, it's that sometimes you should stick with what you know.
A Driven Individual and - So Far - a Serial Winner by monty_radio
In such a day as this when allowing your new manager and regime 10 games is considered the height of patience and sense and, by some, lenient nonsense, Paul Hurst is naturally incurring fans' spoken and written doubts after seven - albeit with an unrecognisable team.
But We’re Not Playing Derby by NormEmerges
As we head into the derby game against Norwich, it seems curious to name it after a completely different town.
