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).

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.
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.
