Tuesday, 10th Apr 2018 19:28
January signing Barry Cotter is handed his Town debut from the start as the Blues face Barnsley at Portman Road. Manager Mick McCarthy makes five changes from the team which lost 1-0 at Brentford on Saturday.
Cotter, who joined the Blues from Limerick on deadline day, is set to line up on the right of a back three with Cameron Carter-Vickers and Jonas Knudsen with skipper Luke Chambers and Adam Webster both ruled out by injury. Myles Kenlock comes in at left wing-back with Jordan Spence on the right.
Cole Skuse returns to the midfield and wears the captain’s armband as the Blues line-up in a 3-4-3 system, while Mustapha Carayol and Bersant Celina are back in the front three either side of Martyn Waghorn.
Former Blues striker Kieffer Moore and ex-Town loanee Zeki Fryers both start for the Tykes.
Town: Bialkowski, Cotter, Carter-Vickers, Knudsen, Spence, Skuse (c), Connolly, Kenlock, Carayol, Waghorn, Celina. Subs: M Crowe, Ward, Hyam, Sears, Nydam, Gleeson, Folami.
Barnsley: Davies, Fryers, Lindsey, Hammill, Isgrove, McBurnie, Yiadom (c), Jackson, Moore, Potts, Gardner. Subs: Walton, McCarthy, Bradshaw, Mallan, Pinnock, Mahoney, Hedges. Referee: James Linington (Newport Isle-of-Wight).

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.
Where We Might Be Without Asset Stripping by David_GG
I am writing today to put forward my opinion about the sorry sad state of Ipswich Town and I suspect a number of other clubs around the land with supporters who feel as if they are suffering at the hands otherwise hugely successful businessmen and women as owners.
Where Did It All Go Wrong for Paul Hurst? by Herbivore
The dust has not yet settled on the reign of Town's shortest-serving permanent manager, a reign the significance and memorability of which is likely to be more dependent on our post-Paul Hurst fate than on his mere 14 league games in charge.
