Parrott in For Bishop as Town Otherwise Unchanged at Shrewsbury
Tuesday, 4th May 2021 18:13
Troy Parrott replaces Teddy Bishop, who drops to the bench, in an otherwise unchanged Blues side facing Shrewsbury at Montgomery Waters Meadow in their final away game of the season.
Dai Cornell is again in goal with Kane Vincent-Young at right-back and Myles Kenlock at left-back with Stephen Ward again missing out.
The veteran Irishman, who is with the squad and on the pitch as the players warm-up, appears to have played his final game for the club with his total of league starts this season having reached 29 and we understand, as was the case with Alan Judge, a 30th set to trigger another year with the Blues.
Andre Dozzell partners Flynn Downes in the middle of midfield with Gwion Edwards on the left and Armando Dobra on the right and Parrott behind lone out-and-out striker James Norwood, who again skippers.
For Shrewsbury, former Blues loanee Matthew Pennington starts at the heart of their defence.
Shrewsbury: Burgoyne, Love, Pennington, Pierre, Walker, Ogbeta, Davis, Vela, Norburn (c), Whalley, Bloxham. Subs: Bevan, Edwards, Williams, Goss, Main, Udoh, Chapman.
Town: Cornell, Vincent-Young, Woolfenden, McGuinness, Kenlock, Dozzell, Downes, Edwards, Parrott, Dobra, Norwood (c). Subs: Holy, Chambers, Nsiala, Bishop, Harrop, Bennetts, Hawkins. Referee: Lee Swabey (Devon).

Reflections On the Change of Ownership at Ipswich by PhilR
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?
