Nsiala, Keane and Folami in U23s Facing Forest
Monday, 9th Sep 2019 12:30
Toto Nsiala, Will Keane and Ben Folami are all set to feature for the U23s when they take on Nottingham Forest at Portman Road this evening (KO 7pm).
Centre-half Nsiala will be involved in his first game since suffering a hamstring injury at the Interwetten Cup in Meppen in July.
Striker Keane will be playing his second U23s match having rejoined the Blues last month having undergone hamstring surgery early in the summer.
Fellow frontman Folami has been out of action since tearing an achilles tendon in the 1-0 U23s victory at Cardiff in January.
The U23s, whose manager Gerard Nash won’t be departing for the boss’s job at League of Ireland St Patrick’s Athletic, Stephen O’Donnell having been handed the position last week, are without a point from their first three Professional Development League Two South games this season.
Meanwhile, U23s midfielder Brett McGavin's loan spell with Vanarama National League South side Concord Rangers has come to an end. McGavin, 19, made six appearances for the Beachboys, scoring once.
Elsewhere, the U18s won 1-0 at Bolton Wanderers on Saturday morning, sub Michael Bareck netting the goal shortly after coming on.

2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
Big Al by ElephantintheRoom
When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
