Four Changes as Blues Switch System Against Blades
Saturday, 27th Apr 2019 16:48
Town boss Paul Lambert has made four changes as the Blues face promotion-chasing Sheffield United lining up with a two-man attack at Bramall Lane.
In defence, Myles Kenlock returns at left-back after missing the Swansea game with a hamstring injury and Callum Elder drops to the bench.
Cole Skuse and Teddy Bishop replace Trevoh Chalobah and Andre Dozzell in what looks set to be a diamond midfield with Alan Judge at the most attacking point behind strike pair Will Keane and Kayden Jackson, who replaces Gwion Edwards in the XI.
The Blades, whose promotion to the Premier League will be all but confirmed if they beat the Blues, make one change with Chris Basham replacing Martin Cranie.
Ex-Town striker David McGoldrick starts, while one-time Blues loanee Richard Stearman is on the bench.
Sheffield United: Henderson, Basham, Egan, O’Connell, Baldock, Norwood (c), Fleck, Stevens, Duffy, McGoldrick, Hogan. Subs: Lundstram, Dowell, Sharp, Madine, Stearman, Moore, Cranie.
Town: Gerken, Bree, Chambers (c), Nsiala, Kenlock, Skuse, Bishop, Downes, Judge, Keane, Jackson. Subs: Chalobah, Dozzell, Elder, Emmanuel, Bialkowski, El Mizouni, Ndaba. Referee: Tim Robinson (West Sussex).

Politics and Ipswich Town by ElephantintheRoom
You might just have noticed that the TWTD Forum is awash with political comment. Annoying for some perhaps, who only want to discuss Norwood’s fitness – but surely no bad thing, given the stark choices facing us at a critical time in the country’s history?
The Story Behind the Billy Kee Banner by ThatMuhrenCross
Sunday's defeat to Accrington Stanley was the first real low point of what has been a fantastic season following Ipswich Town. The performance on the field was nowhere near the standards we'd expect of a team that was flying high at the top of the table.
History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
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.
