Town Unchanged Again Against Bristol City
Wednesday, 28th Nov 2018 19:06
Town boss Paul Lambert has named the same starting XI for the fourth successive match as the Blues face Bristol City at Portman Road, while Ellis Harrison is back on the bench after his ankle injury.
Harrison, 24, played 45 minutes for the U23s at Millwall on Monday having been out since the end of September.
Teddy Bishop, who made his return to first team action as a sub against West Brom on Friday, is again on the bench.
The Robins, who include former Blue Adam Webster in their starting line-up, make two changes from the team which lost 2-0 to Leeds at the weekend. Josh Brownhill is suspended, while Jack Hunt drops to the bench with Liam Walsh and Eros Pisano replacing them in the XI.
The Blues go into the game looking for their first home win since April 11 games ago, their longest run without a victory at Portman Road since they joined the Football League in 1938.
Town: Bialkowski, Spence, Chambers (c), Pennington, Knudsen, Skuse, Chalobah, Downes, Edwards, Sears, Roberts. Subs: Gerken, Donacien, Jackson, Harrison, Bishop, Ward, Lankester.
Bristol City: Maenpaa, Kelly, Kalas, Webster, Adelakun, Eliasson, Walsh, Pack (c), Pisano, Paterson, Weimann. Subs: O’Leary, Dasilva, Baker, Diedhiou, Morrell, Hunt, Eisa. Referee: David Webb (Lancashire).

Football's Financial Crisis by Stowmarket
I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.
Return of the Posh Messiah? - Peterborough Away Preview by portmantales
Classic standing terraces, a reckless Lee Martin and of course Darren Ferguson. These are the things that first come to mind when I think of Peterborough.
Heart of Darkness by Stowmarket
Joseph Conrad’s short novel Heart of Darkness is one of my favourite books. It is based on the real events which the writer experienced first-hand while travelling up the Congo river. It asks serious questions about empire-building and racism.
