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).

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.
