Burgess Starts as Woolfenden and Harper Miss Out Through Illness
Saturday, 6th Aug 2022 14:29
Town are forced into one change for this afternoon’s game against Forest Green Rovers at the Bolt New Lawn with Luke Woolfenden absent due to illness and Cameron Burgess replacing him in the side.
Otherwise, the Blues name the same team as started against Bolton last weekend with Christian Walton in goal and Janoi Donacien and George Edmundson, who looks set to move into the middle of the back three, the other centre-halves.
Wes Burns and Leif Davis are the wing-backs with skipper Sam Morsy and Lee Evans in the midfield.
Conor Chaplin and Marcus Harness are behind lone out-and-out striker Freddie Ladapo.
Midfielder Rekeem Harper is also ill and is replaced on the bench by Kane Vincent-Young.
Forest Green, hosting their first League One match, name the same team which won 2-1 away at Bristol Rovers last week with former Blues striker Connor Wickham, who joined them on Wednesday, not included in the 18.
Forest Green: McGee, O'Keeffe, Cargill, Stevenson, Hendry, Matt (c), Moore-Taylor, McAllister, Godwin-Malife, Davis, Brown. Subs: Thomas, Bernard, Casey, Little, Robertson, Bunker, March.
Town: Walton, Donacien, Edmundson, Burgess, Burns, Evans, Morsy (c), Davis, Chaplin, Harness, Ladapo. Subs: Hladky, Leigh, Vincent-Young, Aluko, Edwards, John-Jules, Jackson. Referee: Craig Hicks (Surrey).

So another season of high hopes and expectations has begun. We always say ‘something’ feels different as we go into a new season.
McKenna's Marvellous Hybrid Formation by DanLyles
“I don’t speak to players a lot about 4-2-3-1, 4-3-3 or 3-5-2 and think it’s about them understanding their roles and responsibilities on the pitch, as well as the spaces we want to attack and where to defend.”
The Cashless Debate by ThatMuhrenCross
Ipswich Town Football Club's decision to move towards a "cashless" Portman Road next season has proved to be a more controversial topic than first expected, not only on the TWTD Forum and comments section, but also across social media and in conversations between fans.
