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).

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.
