Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy will speak to Tom Lawrence, after the 23-year-old’s indiscipline brought him a two-match ban.

The talented forward was booked for dissent at Brighton on Tuesday night, his 10th caution of the season, and will miss tomorrow’s home clash with Leeds and next Sunday’s East Anglian derby at Norwich City as a result.

“I had a word with him (Lawrence) before and I will again, it’s just daft and it’s to our loss. Let’s hope it’s not too big a loss,” said McCarthy, of the on-loan Leicester man.

Lawrence’s absence could, however, pave the way for a new hero and McCarthy has plenty of attacking options at his disposal.

“We have got Fred (Freddie Sears) and Pits (Brett (Pitman) and Kieffer (Moore).

“We have the finishing, craft and guile of Pits, pace and legs with Freddie and the physical presence of Kieffer, so we have options.”

  • Perhaps No Loans should have mentioned this after bookings 3,4,5,6,7,8 or 9?

  • It was noticed and mentioned by BBC Radio Suffolk that Tom Lawrence was constantly bickering with the referee....so it appeared he was wanting to get a ban in order to have a rest.

It’s been a dismal season for Ipswich Town fans and it could yet get worse.

Ipswich may have broken out of their run of straight draws – but a 3-1 defeat isn’t really much to shout about.

Ipswich Town defender Tommy Smith has told a newspaper in New Zealand that he is 100% committed to playing for the national team, ahead of the All Whites’ World Cup qualifiers against Fiji.

With eight games to go, Ipswich Town are still not safe from relegation to League One, following a tough season in the Championship, and lost 3-1 at Cardiff City at the weekend.

Mick McCarthy says his managerial record is the reason for his longevity at Portman Road, not owner Marcus Evans’ perceived patience with his managers.

Ipswich Town will not be backtracking on their decision to raise the price of season tickets, despite a huge outcry from supporters.

Loan duo Dominic Samuel and Jonny Williams made timely injury comebacks last night as a strong Ipswich Town Under-23 side drew 1-1 with Crewe at Portman Road.

Ipswich Town have suffered a double injury blow with the news that forward duo David McGoldrick and Tom Lawrence have had to withdraw from the Republic of Ireland and Wales squads respectively.
