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).

Where Might This Lead? by Moggasknockdown
As we draw stumps on the darkest season in the club’s recent history, it is hard not to reflect on Paul Lambert's efforts to revive our listing club with at least a degree of optimism for the future.

There was quite a groundswell of opinion that no annual awards should have been given after a season like that. Except perhaps for one award that doesn’t have a category… the award for the supporters!
