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).

Reflections on Relegation by TimS
I was walking through Kesgrave last Saturday afternoon around 4.35pm with my mind wandering. I could distinctly remember making the same walk from a local Tesco through Grange Farm back in the spring of 2002.

My first season following Town was 2002/03, just after relegation from the Premier League and in full of optimism for a quick return.
It's Not R*********, It's the Promise of an Adventure by BaltachaFanClub
Let’s be totally honest, we’ve not had a good year. I know that’s an understatement and come August we begin in a league we haven’t played in for the majority of most readers’ lives.
Reasons for Relegation by rickw
This week has seen several newspapers print their stories on Ipswich's demise giving their simplistic reason on what's gone wrong.
If Stats Won Games: Small Victories by Kropotkin123
If you think the Premier League is over analysed with meaningless stats by meaningless contributors, have I got a treat for you! With six games to go and a 44% chance of relegation even if we win all six, my attention has turned to more realistic, less fruitful objectives.
