Sears Returns as Hawkins Misses Out
Saturday, 17th Oct 2020 14:18
Freddie Sears returns to the Town starting XI in place of Oli Hawkins in an otherwise unchanged side for this afternoon’s home game against Accrington Stanley.
Hawkins, who has started the last three games, appears to have picked up a knock having not been included in the 18.
It's expected that Sears will start in one of the wide roles with Alan Judge playing centrally as a false nine in the absence of out-and-out strikers Hawkins, James Norwood, Aaron Drinan and Kayden Jackson, also missing from the 18, presumably due to a fitness concern.
Myles Kenlock again starts at left-back in the absence of Stephen Ward, who is out with an achilles injury.
Jon Nolan is back after his calf problem and is on the bench, alongside recent loan signings Mark McGuinness and Keanan Bennetts, and young striker Tyreece Simpson.
Accrington also make one change with defender Michael Nottingham handed his full debut following his recent move from Blackpool for forward Ryan Cassidy.
Town: Holy, Chambers (c), Nsiala, Wilson, Kenlock, Dozzell, Huws, Bishop, Judge, Sears, Edwards. Subs: Cornell, Woolfenden, McGuinness, Nolan, Lankester, Bennetts, Simpson.
Accrington: Savin, Nottingham, Hughes, Burgess, Sykes, Butcher, Russell, Pritchard, Uwakwe, Bishop, Conneely (c). Subs: Baxter, Allen, Cassidy, Barclay, Rodgers, Scully, Mohammed. Referee: Robert Lewis (Shrewsbury).

The Grim Experience of Becoming a Socially-Distanced Supporter by chazza
Second only to the terrible the footballing performance against Portsmouth comes the grim experience of becoming a 'socially-distanced' supporter.
Season's Beatings by Moggasknockdown
It is a bitterly disheartening experience supporting Ipswich. At every sliding doors moment in our recent history we have taken the wrong path, at every opportunity for schadenfreude an ex-player will decisively score, or create or generally remind us all that they are happier now, away from the depressing, soul-destroying experience that was their Ipswich career.
