Town Unchanged at Hull City
Saturday, 18th Nov 2017 14:14
Town boss Mick McCarthy has named an unchanged side for this afternoon’s game against Hull City at the KCOM Stadium.
The Blues will again line-up in their attacking 4-2-3-1 system with eight-goal top scorer Martyn Waghorn, seven-goal David McGoldrick and six-goal Bersant Celina behind Joe Garner, who has netted four times this season.
Callum Connolly again joins Cole Skuse, who is over the injury he suffered in the 3-0 victory over Preston before the international break, in the deeper midfield roles.
There is no place in the 18 for Emyr Huws, who was in contention to return to the squad for the first time since joining the Blues on a permanent basis in the summer after recovering from his achilles injury.
Hull make four changes, Michael Hector, Kevin Stewart, Markus Henriksen and Nouha Dicko coming into the side for Max Clark, David Meyler, Jackson Irvine and Fraizer Campbell.
Hull City: McGregor, Aina, Tomori, Dawson (c), Hector, Stewart, Larsson, Henriksen, Bowen, Grosicki, Dicko. Subs: Marshall, Masuch, Clark, Meyler, Irvine, Evandro, Diomande.
Town: Bialkowski, Spence, Webster, Chambers (c), Knudsen, Skuse, Connolly, Celina, McGoldrick, Waghorn, Garner. Subs: Gerken, Iorfa, Ward, Sears, Nydam, Bru, Kenlock. Referee: David Coote (Nottinghamshire).

End of Season Grades by BlueBloke
Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
Away Day Report: Reading by BlueBloke
I wake up at 5.30am. I’d like to say it was in anticipation of watching the Town. Sadly, it owes rather a greater deal to an abhorrently early alarm on Tuesday morning and a very late night on Thursday. Still, now that I’m conscious I may as well start thinking about the day ahead.
On This Day - Saturday 28th April 1962 by clivebleedingthomas
As a 15-year-old I make my way to Portman Road full of anticipation and anxiety. Our rivals, Burnley, are playing at home to already relegated Chelsea. A home win must be on the cards. On the following Tuesday they will play their game in hand against Sheffield Wednesday. However, Town are top of Division One and facing Aston Villa.
An Open Application for the Ipswich Manager's Position by BaltachaFanClub
