Boss confirms that he will change his team around at Turf Moor so he can have a look at players in a League match situation

Mick McCarthy has confirmed that he will make changes to his side for the weekend’s trip to Burnley.

Blues secured their Championship status for next season with a 3-1 win over Birmingham at Portman Road last weekend, meaning Town can go into the game without the fear of relegation.

“We want to win the game, of course, but it gives me a chance to have a look at a few players,” the Town boss told the Club website.

“There will certainly be a few changes from our point of view and I think Burnley may do the same.

“There are a few players that I haven’t had much of a look at in a match-situation, such as Tyrone Mings, Pat Kisnorbo and even young Elliott Hewitt.

“Elliott has done exceedingly well when he’s played, but we forget he’s still only 18 years old.

“Pat has been terrific around the place. He obviously wanted more game-time, but Tommy (Smith) and Chambo (Luke Chambers) have been performing brilliantly so it’s been hard to get him involved.

“But he’s been a model pro. He’s never sulked and I’ll tell you what, he’s kept Tommy and Chambo on their toes by the way he’s trained and that’s one reason why they’ve performed so well.”
