No Friendly for Free Week

Boss Joe Royle says Town will not be organising a friendly for Saturday, January 29th. With the Blues out of the FA Cup, they have no match scheduled for that date.
It had been suggested that Town might have played a friendly that weekend, perhaps with Norwich raising funds for the Asian tsunami victims.
However, Royle says that another fixture is not something he is considering: "We are not looking for any extra games and I am sure Norwich will feel exactly the same.
"We are in a 46-game season and this is definitely a no-goer. As individuals and as a club we are all supporting the appeal."
Town also have two friendlies with Lazio to be fitted in at some point, games agreed as part of the deal which took Matteo Sereni to the Rome club.
Royle says one of the games might have been set for that weekend but that extra matches aren't high on his list of priorities at present: "We could perhaps have fulfilled that game on the blank Saturday but arranging an additional game is the last thing on my mind at the moment."
