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.

It's All Going Wrong, Again by sam_n1
There seems to be a pattern emerging of a consistent fall in form as this season starts to get up and running, especially during the Christmas fixtures. But who or what is down to?
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.
