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).

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.
