Town Remain Seventh
Saturday, 2nd Jan 2021 17:25
Town remain seventh, one place off the play-offs on goal difference with a game in hand, following Saturday’s League One fixtures.
Most of the teams around the Blues weren’t in action due to Covid-related postponements and in the case of the Accrington-Portsmouth fixture a frozen pitch.
However, Charlton in sixth were beaten 2-0 at Hull City, who moved ahead of Pompey into second. Lincoln City remain top having won 2-1 away at AFC Wimbledon.
Sunderland stay 11th after drawing 0-0 at Northampton, while Oxford moved up to 12th only four points behind the Blues having won 5-1 away at bottom club Burton Albion, although having played two more games.
Elsewhere, on-loan Town midfielder Idris El Mizouni was left out of the Cambridge United 18 as the U’s won 2-1 at Grimsby in League Two in Paul Hurst’s first game as manager of the Mariners, for whom ex-Blues full-back Elliott Hewitt was on target.
El Mizouni’s return to the Blues looks very much on the cards now we’re into January when there is the facility for his spell to be cut short.
The 20-year-old Tunisian international has been unable to establish a starting role in the Cambridge side since his return to the Abbey Stadium for his second loan stint in September, while Town have been short of midfield options due to injury in recent weeks.

I am in my late 50s and have supported the club for as long as I can remember.
Power of Motivation by LegendRay
The strangest and most disappointing aspect of this season has been lack of bounce.
Demolition Man by tractorboykent
Paul Cook isn’t a man to mince words. Even though we are all sick of the continuing spiral of underachievement at Town, it was nevertheless still a bit of a shock to hear him lay into the 18 that capitulated to Wimbledon in what he described before kick-off as a season defining match.
Here We Go by tractorboykent
For a club recently described as Britain’s unhappiest, it may seem odd that Town fans are suddenly awash with optimism now that the deal is done.
One of the Strongest Squads? by NormEmerges
I keep hearing that ITFC has one of the strongest squads in League One. It’s certainly true that we have one of the biggest squads, but strongest? I would assume ‘strongest’ to mean ‘includes higher quality players for this league’. What do the facts tell us?
