Edwards Starts Against Old Club Peterborough
Saturday, 17th Aug 2019 14:28

Gwion Edwards makes his first League One start of the season against his old club Peterborough with the Blues otherwise unchanged from last Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Sunderland.

Edwards, who was a starter in the much-changed line-up for the Carabao Cup defeat at Luton on Tuesday having returned from his groin injury, comes in for Luke Garbutt, who is out for a month with a knee problem, on the left of midfield.

Prospective new right-back Kane Vincent-Young travelled with the Town squad with his £500,000 move from Colchester agreed subject to his medical.

Town will be looking for their first win away against Peterborough since 1972 - a 2-0 FA Cup success - and their first ever victory at London Road in the league.

For Posh, who have lost all three of their games this season, Marcus Maddison and Niall Mason return to their starting line-up after missing their 1-0 Carabao Cup defeat to Oxford in midweek.

Peterborough: Pym, Beevers (c), Kent, Eisa, Knight, Maddison, Reed, Toney, Blake-Tracy, Boyd, Mason. Subs: O’Malley, Butler, Dembele, Tasdemir, Ward, Kanu, Burrows.

Town: Holy, Donacien, Chambers (c), Woolfenden, Kenlock, Skuse, Downes, Rowe, Edwards, Jackson, Norwood. Subs: Norris, Wilson, Judge, Roberts, Dozzell, El Mizouni, Huws. Referee: Martin Coy (Durham).

Hmmm. Edwards is not defensively astute in any way. So hoping he is worth his place on the pitch for the attacking impetus.

Got a real opportunity to be 7 from 9. Lets score some goals Town. Come on Ipswich!

Good attacking line up, would be good to see Huws and Judge on the pitch together at some stage, very exciting ;)
