Five Changes as Town Face Forest
Saturday, 16th Mar 2019 14:48
Town boss Paul Lambert has again made five changes for this afternoon’s home game against Nottingham Forest with Cole Skuse, Matthew Pennington, James Bree, Teddy Bishop and Collin Quaner all back in the team.
Toto Nsiala, Kayden Jackson, Andre Dozzell and Trevoh Chalobah drop to the bench, while Josh Emmanuel is left out of the 18.
The Blues look set to line-up in their familiar 4-3-3 system with Alan Judge and Gwion Edwards either side of lone central striker Quaner. Keeper Dean Gerken was back among the subs having been ill last week.
Forest, with their assistant manager Roy Keane making his first return to Portman Road since his time as Town boss, make three changes with Jack Robinson, Molla Wague, who is making his first start for the Tricky Trees, and former Blue Daryl Murphy coming into the team. Joao Carvalho, Karim Ansarifard and Alexander Milosevic all drop to the bench. Former Blues loanee Jack Colback skippers.
Town: Bialkowski, Bree, Pennington, Chambers (c), Kenlock, Skuse, Nolan, Bishop, Judge, Edwards, Quaner. Subs: Gerken, Knudsen, Chalobah, Jackson, Nsiala, Dozzell, El Mizouni.
Nottingham Forest: Pantilimon, Darikwa, Benalouane, Wague, Robinson, Yates, Pele, Colback (c), Lolley, Murphy, Osborn. Subs: Steele, Guedioura, Watson, Carvalho, Cash, Milosevic, Ansarifard. Referee: Keith Stroud (Hampshire).

If you’re old enough to remember where this saying came from, you can probably remember Town playing in the third tier!
Rise and Fall by NormEmerges
Like my father, I was born and bred in Suffolk. He was a lifetime Ipswich Town supporter. But when I was a boy, back in the 1950s, like many small boys I followed clubs at the top of the old First Division.
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.
The History Boys by Tristan90
My first season following Town was 2002/03, just after relegation from the Premier League and in full of optimism for a quick return.
