Six Changes as Town Face Hull
Tuesday, 13th Mar 2018 19:31
Town boss Mick McCarthy makes six changes from the team which drew 0-0 at home with Sheffield United on Saturday for tonight’s game against Hull City at Portman Road with Luke Hyam, Grant Ward, Jordan Spence, Jonas Knudsen, Tristan Nydam and Freddie Sears all starting.
Cole Skuse misses out, presumably due to injury, as does Dominic Iorfa (groin), while Adam Webster, Martyn Waghorn, Callum Connolly and Myles Kenlock all drop to the bench.
The Blues look set to switch to the 4-3-2-1 system they favoured until last month with Hyam and Stephen Gleeson the deeper midfielders with Bersant Celina, Ward and Nydam the trio behind lone striker Sears.
Joe Garner, whose wife gave birth earlier today, was due to be on the bench but was a late drop out, although apparently due to injury. Aaron Drinan takes his place among the subs.
For Hull, Fraizer Campbell comes in for Abel Hernandez, Michael Hector for Ondrei Mazuch and in goal Allan McGregor for David Marshall.
Town: Bialkowski, Spence, Carter-Vickers, Chambers (c), Knudsen, Gleeson, Hyam, Ward, Nydam, Celina, Sears. Subs: M Crowe, Webster, Waghorn, Drinan, Connolly, Kenlock, Morris.
Hull City: McGregor, Irvine, Hector, Larsson, Bowen, Dawson (c), Henriksen, Clark, Campbell, Aina, Wilson. Subs: Marshall, Grosocki, Meyler, Dicko, Keane, Tomori, MacDonald. Referee: Jeremy Simpson (Lancashire).

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.
