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).

An Uncomfortable Truth by TBT
The Marcus Evans group of companies numbers over 30 different organisations and having a lame duck subsidiary running at a loss has its merits in terms of taxation.
This Might Rub You Up the Wrong Way, it Might Not! by delias_cheesy_flaps
“What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up the stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him, and without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”
Identity Crisis by andygri
As someone born in the mid 1970s, I am part of the generation that has seen Ipswich Town Football Club move in and out of the footballing limelight over the last 40 years.
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.
Is the Season Done And Dusted For Ipswich Town? by Pessimistic
That game away at Bolton summed up in my view all that is wrong with Ipswich Town Football Club.
