Morris Nets First Senior Goal
Saturday, 24th Nov 2018 17:09
On-loan Blues striker Ben Morris netted his first senior goal as Forest Green Rovers beat Carlisle 2-1 at Brunton Park in League Two.
Morris put Rovers ahead in the 13th minute as he made his first league start having previously made three starts in the Checkatrade Trophy in addition to one appearance from the bench in the league.
The 19-year-old is on loan for the season but with the Blues able to cut his spell short in January.
Elsewhere, Tristan Nydam was an unused sub as his loan club St Johnstone drew 0-0 at home with Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership.
Right-back Josh Emmanuel was in the Shrewsbury side which won 3-2 away at Wycombe Wanderers in League One.
Centre-half Luke Woolfenden played the full 90 minutes as Swindon won 1-0 at Port Vale in League Two.
Neither Aaron Drinan nor Pat Webber were involved for their loan clubs Sutton and Braintree in the Vanarama National League.
Meanwhile, today’s results in the Championship mean the Blues are now six points - plus goal difference - from safety with Millwall and Bolton in 21st and 22nd respectively having drawn 1-1 at the Den.
Reading, 20th, also picked up a point via a 0-0 draw at Wigan, while Hull, 23rd, were beaten 2-0 at Nottingham Forest.
Elsewhere, former Blues boss Mick McCarthy is expected to be confirmed as manager of the Republic of Ireland tomorrow, returning to the role he previously occupied between 1996 and 2002.

Broken Ipswich by SouperJim
There is an unspoken contract between the fans and the club. Marcus Evans has ripped up this contract.
It is a Question of Caring and Camps by TimS
I accept that it is very different following Town away from Suffolk. You do not pick up on the mood on the street in Suffolk and there is something very different thinking about your club through the media whether Town are playing in Suffolk or throughout the UK.
More Than a Manager by Stowmarket
It was a warm Friday evening in late May and almost a thousand Ipswich fans had a date with Bobby Robson at Portman Road.
The Nearly Men by ElephantintheRoom
Throughout the Robson years, Town built an enviable reputation for producing homegrown talent. Young players seemed to slip into the first team almost on demand. For over a decade the team prospered with only the occasional ‘missing piece’ sourced from elsewhere.
John O’Rourke – Unsung Hero by ElephantintheRoom
Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.
