Kenlock, Celina, Gleeson and Iorfa Start Against Blades
Saturday, 10th Mar 2018 14:21
Myles Kenlock, Bersant Celina, Stephen Gleeson and Dominic Iorfa all return to the Blues’ starting XI for this afternoon’s game against Sheffield United.
Left wing-back Jonas Knudsen misses out due to a tight hamstring and Mustapha Carayol having suffered a groin problem at Sheffield Wednesday in midweek, while Jordan Spence and Luke Hyam drop to the bench.
Town look set to play a similar 3-5-2 system to the one they employed at Hillsborough with Celina playing off main striker Martyn Waghorn.
Cameron Carter-Vickers, who spent the first half of the season with the Blades, is again part of a back three with skipper Luke Chambers and Adam Webster.
For the visitors, Ched Evans and John Lundstram come into the team replacing Clayton Donaldson, who is on the bench, and Mark Duffy, who is absent due to a tight calf. Ex-Blues loanee Richard Stearman starts in the Blades defence.
Town: Bialkowski, Carter-Vickers, Chambers (c), Webster, Iorfa, Skuse, Connolly, Gleeson, Kenlock, Celina, Waghorn. Subs: M Crowe, Spence, Garner, Ward, Hyam, Sears, Nydam.
Sheffield United: Blackman, O’Connell, Stearman, Basham, Stevens, Fleck, Lundstram, L Evans, Baldock, Sharp (c), C Evans. Moore, Donaldson, Wilson, Leonard, Lafferty, Holmes, Brooks. Referee: John Brooks (Leicestershire).

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.
