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).

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.
