Five Changes for Town Against Cardiff
Wednesday, 21st Feb 2018 19:22
Boss Mick McCarthy makes five changes - some of them enforced - as the Blues face Cardiff City at Portman Road.
Joe Garner and David McGoldrick miss out through injury, while Martyn Waghorn, a virtual ever-present since the early days of the season, drops to the bench.
McCarthy sticks with the three-man backline of Cameron Carter-Vickers, skipper Luke Chambers and Adam Webster with Jordan Spence returning at right wing-back for Dominic Iorfa, who is a sub. Jonas Knudsen continues on the left.
Cole Skuse is joined by Luke Hyam, making his first league start since May 2016, and Grant Ward in midfield with Callum Connolly and Stephen Gleeson on the bench. Mustapha Carayol was a late withdrawal due to illness.
Up front, Bersant Celina is likely to be behind Freddie Sears. For Cardiff, ex-Blues keeper Brian Murphy is among their subs.
Town: Bialkowski, Spence, Chambers (c), Webster, Carter-Vickers, Knudsen, Ward, Skuse, Hyam, Celina, Sears. Unused: M Crowe, Waghorn, Bru, Kenlock, Gleeson, Iorfa, Connolly.
Cardiff: Etheridge, Morrison (c), Manga, Ralls, Zohore, Bamba, Connolly, Mendez-Laing, Damour, Grujic, Hoilett. Unused: Murphy, Feeney, Pilkington, Halford, Bryson, Wildschut, Madine. Referee: Andy Davies (Hampshire).

Avoiding Sunderland's Fate - Lessons From Sunderland Till I Die by vancouverblue
I was sat watching Netflix last night and the Sunderland Till I Die docuseries. As one episode turned into two and then five and thoughts of that decent night's sleep I knew I needed disappeared into the early hours, I couldn’t help but think of the similarities between them last season and Town this year.
We'll Win Again Some Sunny Day by SpiritOfJohn
2018 has been a terrible year to be an Ipswich Town supporter.
Amazingly, we have only one twice at home this year, against Leeds in January and Barnsley in April.
What Would Eric Gates Say? by millvalleyblue
I started supporting Ipswich when I was six. I’m 49 now and live in Mill Valley, just north of San Francisco. I grew up in Cork. People always ask: Ipswich? Why? The reason was my best friend, Christopher, supported Ipswich. I’ve no reason why he did. All the other kids supported Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal or Leeds.
Feeling Very Blue Not Watching You by Pessimistic
Being an overseas supporter means I get to see all the live streams of Ipswich Town games for a seasonal subscription fee. Great idea! Well, it used to be, until one day I could not log in and asked iFollow to resend my password.
Man v Fat Football - A Personal Blog by GavTWTD
I'm fat. There, I said it. I'm a 248lb/112kg bloke in my late 40s and I'm struggling with my weight. I've lacked the will power to either do something about it or, when I've succeeded, to keep it off.
