Three Changes as Blues End Season Against Boro
Sunday, 6th May 2018 12:19
Cole Skuse, Cameron Carter-Vickers and Freddie Sears return to the Blues’ line-up for their final game of the season at home to Middlesbrough.
The injured Mustapha Carayol and Ben Folami drop out while Luke Woolfenden moves to the bench.
Town will again start with three at the back with Jordan Spence over the knee injury which had made him a doubt going into the match at right wing-back.
Middlesbrough, who are confirmed in the play-offs but will be looking to seal fifth spot, are unchanged from the team which beat Millwall 2-0 at home last week. Former Blues skipper Grant Leadbitter is on the bench.
Town: Bialkowski, Webster, Carter-Vickers, Knudsen, Spence, Skuse (c), Connolly, Nydam, Kenlock, Sears, Waghorn. Subs: M Crowe, Gleeson, Hyam, Morris, Cotter, Woolfenden, McLoughlin.
Middlesbrough: Randolph, Friend, Ayala, Shotton, Gibson (c), Clayton, Assombalonga, Howson, Downing, Besic, Traore. Subs: Konstantopoulos, Fabio, Leadbitter, Bamford, Cranie, Fry, Harrison. Referee: David Coote (Nottinghamshire).

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.
