Dozzell and Fans Return as Blues Host Pompey
Saturday, 12th Dec 2020 14:22
Town boss Paul Lambert has made one change for this afternoon’s home game against Portsmouth with Andre Dozzell returning in midfield.
The 21-year-old missed last week’s 2-1 win at Plymouth as he was suspended having reached five bookings.
Brett McGavin drops to the bench, while striker Aaron Drinan is also among the subs having recovered from his hamstring injury.
Portsmouth are unchanged from the team which beat Peterborough 2-0 at Fratton Park last weekend with winger Michael Jacobs back from a knee injury and on the bench alongside ex-Town striker Ellis Harrison.
Fans will be back at Portman Road for the first time since March with the game watched by 2,000 season ticket holders allocated their tickets via the ballot.
Town: Cornell, Chambers (c), Woolfenden, McGuinness, Ward, Dozzell, Nolan, Dobra, Lankester, Judge, Jackson. Subs: Holy, Nsiala, Kenlock, McGavin, Bennetts, Drinan, Hawkins.
Portsmouth: Macgillivray, Johnson, Brown, Naylor (c), Whatmough, Williams, Marquis, Curtis, Cannon, Harness, Raggett. Subs: Bass, Close, Harrison, Nicolaisen, Pring, Jacobs, Hiwula. Referee: Thomas Bramall (Sheffield).

They Shoot Horses, Don't They? by Theipswich
Given the circumstances in which we supporters find ourselves at our lowest point in 64 years and with a level of communication befitting Lord Lucan, I have penned an open letter to our president Marcus Evans, as I am certain I would not have the courtesy of a reply if I were to write to the club:
