TEAM-NEWS PRE-DERBY

12 February 2019

No return for James Collins tomorrow night, but some positive news on Welsh winger Gwion

Town boss Paul Lambert says he has a couple of new injury worries to contend with ahead of tomorrow's visit of Derby County.

Collin Quaner missed Sunday's East Anglian derby with a hamstring injury but should be available for selection, although the game looks as if it will come too soon for James Collins [also hamstring] to return.

"We have one or two knocks from the weekend," the boss told iFollow Ipswich.

"James [Collins] is still feeling it a little bit but he's getting better. Maybe this one will be a little bit early for him.

"We need to see how Luke Chambers is, too. If he can play, I'm pretty sure he will. He felt good on Saturday & we waited until Sunday but towards the end of the game his foot felt painful again so it'll be a late call on him.

"Hopefully Collin Quaner will be OK. He trained this morning so hopefully there's no reaction & if he's OK he'll be in the squad.

There is good news, however, on Gwion Edwards with the Welshman back in contention following a spell on the sidelines.

"Gwion has been injured with a really frustrating groin problem. He trained this morning for the first time in a few weeks so he'll be in the squad but it might be a bit early for him."

Nolan finds the target as Town match high-flyers

Jon Nolan’s second goal for Town gave Blues a point but it could have been three.

The summer signing from Shrewsbury came off the bench to find the net within a minute of coming on after Tom Lawrence had given Derby an early lead.

Jonas Knudsen saw a strike headed off the line and another goalbound effort clear as Paul Lambert’s side showed loads of character.

Fikayo Tomori hit the woodwork for the Rams in added on time but Blues matched the Play-Off challengers all the way and fully deserved the ovation on the final whistle.   

Blues made four changes to the side that went down at Norwich at the weekend, skipper Luke Chambers missing out with a foot injury, Bart Bialkowski wearing the armband for the first time since he was captain for Poland at U20 level.

Town got off to the worst possible start again, with just two minutes on the clock when Lawrence hooked the ball home from close range via a deflection off the unfortunate Knudsen.

Blues responded, Collin Quaner seeing a shot deflected wide, Alan Judge and then Will Keane crowded out in the Rams’ box before Teddy Bishop won the ball with a terrific tackle, then was only a yard away from sending Keane in on goal with an incisive pass.

Myles Kenlock’s right footer almost fell into Bishop’s path, Lawrence’s cross failing to find former Blue, Martyn Waghorn in the Town box, Quaner then firing wide after Judge sent him away on the counter.



Trevoh Chalobah had a shot deflected behind for a corner, Richard Keogh clearing Judge’s delivery, then Chalobah’s header from another Judge set-piece drifted just wide.

Matt Pennington did well to hold up Lawrence as the Wales international raced into the box, Fikayo Tomori bundling the ball just wide from the corner, the half finishing with another set-piece from Judge evading Keane at the back post.

James Bree pulled a shot wide as Town pushed for an early equaliser as the second-half got underway, Flynn Downes limping off on 52 minutes to be replaced by Nolan in Blues’ first change.

The substitute made an immediate impact, Qauner set him up and the midfielder buried his shot past Kelle Roos to level the scores.

David Nugent replaced Harry Wilson in Derby’s first change, Judge winning a free-kick 35 yards out, the Republic of Ireland international testing Roos with a curler.

Bishop had a shot deflected wide, then from the corner Knudsen saw his shot headed off the line when a goal looked certain.

Andre Dozzell replaced Bishop as Paul Lambert shuffled his pack, Pennington heading over from a Judge delivery as Town looked the more likely to add to the scoreline.

Chalobah was wide from the edge of the area, Mason Bennett and Craig Bryson entering the fray, with Bennett denied by Pennington’s excellent tackle inside the area.

Ellis Harrison completed the changes, on for Quaner, the substitute not able to hook James Bree’s pass back into the danger area, Scott Malone denied at the other end by resolute Town defending.

Knudsen stayed strong to keep out Bennett at the near post, Bialkowki doing well to keep out Richard Keogh with a strong right hand, then Tomori unable to keep his shot down as the ball broke loose.

Knudsen was thwarted again after more great work by Pennington, Waghorn was denied by Bialkowski, Dozzell had a shot blocked, Tomori hit the bar then Nugent couldn’t beat the Town ‘keeper in a frantic finish.

Town: Bialkowski, Bree, Pennington, Knudsen, Kenlock, Downes (Nolan 52), Chalobah, Bishop (Dozzell 69), Judge, Quaner (Harrison 75), Keane. Subs not used: Gerken, Edwards, Jackson, Nsiala. Booked: Chalobah, Pennington.

Discounted prices for Derby visit as Town back Paul's call to maintain 'vital home support'

Town fans can save over 50 per cent on match ticket prices when Frank Lampard brings his high-flying Derby to Portman Road next month.

With Paul Lambert looking to maintain the significant role played by the Blue Army as Town look to climb out of the relegation zone, match ticket prices have been heavily discounted for the game on Wednesday, February 13. Kick-off 7.45pm

Adult prices in all areas of the stadium will be priced at just £12.Seniors 65+ and U23s will be charged £8, while entry for U19s and U12s will be £3.

The visit of the Rams is likely to see former Blues, Martyn Waghorn and Jack Marriott and ex-Town loanee, Tom Lawrence, return to Portman Road.

“Marcus [Evans, owner] was here for the Rotherham game and saw how well the ticket promotion for that match worked and how the atmosphere helped the team,” Lee O’Neill, general manager football operations, explained to the Club website.

“Paul has spoken to Marcus and myself about trying to get in as many fans as possible into Portman Road. Our home games are obviously going to be critical and Paul has been amazed by the support the Club has, given the position in the table.

“We want to maintain that, while obviously protecting the value of a season ticket.”

Supporters who purchased a season ticket at Early Bird prices are guaranteed best value for the season.

An adult season ticket in the lower tiers of the Sir Bobby Robson and Sir Alf Ramsey works out at £16.56 per match, which equates to seven games free of charge against normal match ticket prices or a saving of close on £200.
