Mick McCarthy said he should respect the integrity of the league when considering squad selection for the remaining games this season.
Town host Play-Off hopefuls Sheffield Wednesday between visits to the already relegated Rotherham and a Nottingham Forest side also battling the drop.
“I will change the team for Rotherham,” the boss told the official Club website.
“I want to see a couple of players come in and see if they can make a challenge for their position.
“We’ve got Sheffield Wednesday here and I want to win that with a full strength team, hopefully playing like we did against Burton and Newcastle.
“We’re going to Nottingham Forest on the last day and looking at how things are going, there could be something riding on that.
“If that’s the case I won’t mess around with the team for that either.
“I think I have to respect the integrity of it all, I shouldn’t turn up with a team I wouldn’t normally pick and suddenly get slapped if it affects the top six or bottom three.”
