Town Make Four Changes Against Birmingham
Saturday, 13th Apr 2019 14:23
Town boss Paul Lambert has made four changes as the Blues face Birmingham City at Portman Road.
Josh Emmanuel returns for James Bree at right-back with James Collins at the centre of the defence alongside skipper Luke Chambers with Toto Nsiala among the subs.
In midfield, Flynn Downes and Trevoh Chalobah drop to the bench with Cole Skuse set to take up his usual deeper role, while Gwion Edwards returns from a groin injury to take up his position on the right of the front three with Andre Dozzell returning to the central trio.
Birmingham make two changes from the team which drew 1-1 with Sheffield United in midweek with Kerim Mrabti and Jota taking over from Jacques Maghoma and Connor Mahoney.
Even if Town beat the Midlanders, results elsewhere this weekend could confirm relegation to the third tier for the first time in 62 years.
Town: Bialkowski, Emmanuel, Chambers (c), Collins, Kenlock, Skuse, Dozzell, Bishop, Judge, Edwards, Quaner. Subs: Gerken, Chalobah, Jackson, Downes, Nsiala, Bree, El Mizouni.
Birmingham: Camp, Colin, Dean, Morrison (c), Pedersen, Jota, G Gardner, Davis, Mrabti, Adams, Jutkiewicz. Subs: Trueman, Harding, Roberts, C Gardner, Maghoma, Mahoney, Vassell Referee: Jeremy Simpson (Lancashire).

Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
Stick With It by Moggasknockdown
Last season, following our most recent derby day disappointment, a late Monday afternoon discussion in the office had prompted a colleague to wonder what he might say to Marcus Evans if he were stuck in a lift with him.
The Beat One Year On by ElephantintheRoom
Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the clubâ€™s history. Any poll on Townâ€™s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. Heâ€™s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesnâ€™t make it look like heâ€™s slipped off his pedestal).
Does the NFL Point to Footballâ€™s Future? by ElephantintheRoom
