Stephen Henderson to return to Ipswich Town on loan

IPSWICH Town are hoping they have beaten tonight’s 11pm transfer deadline to bring back Stephen Henderson on loan from West Ham.

The Irish keeper had reportedly been due to go to Blackburn Rovers in a swap deal for Paul Robinson, but that move fell through earlier today.

The deal had to be rushed through before tonight’s 11pm deadline as Football League rules state that clubs cannot take the same player on an ‘emergency’ loan twice in the same season.

Henderson, 24, made 16 appearances during his first spell at Town between October and the start of this month.

  • No Loans somehow manages to become EIGHT loans in three? months. If it wasn't so depressing and pointless, Henderson turning up yet again as a last resort would actually be quite funny. Are you sure No Loans' rumoured mega-bonus is not actually for getting Offshore Investment FC relegated? After all in just a few weeks he has morphed from a gruff, reasonablty sensible manager with a whiff of credibility into Paul Jewell with a Yorkshire accent.

  • Why? We need a striker and at least two midfielders. I said at the middle of last season that we would be relegated this season and the change of manager has not altered my opinion. Despite what he said when he arrived at ITFC, MM has gone the same route as PJ, LOANS LOANS LOANS. They never have worked and never will. Evans needs to loosen the purse strings as that is probably the main reason DJ didn't sign. I have supported ITFC since 1957 and in all that time have never seen my team in such a terrible state.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy highlighted the performances of Josh Emmanuel, Jonas Knudsen and Tom Lawrence as positives after tonight’s goalless home draw with high-flying Brighton.

Ipswich Town couldn’t capitalise on Brighton finishing the game with 10 men as they played out a second successive goalless draw at Portman Road in front of their lowest league attendance in almost four years.

Ipswich Town have an opportunity to quickly bounce back from a 1-0 defeat to Leeds as they host Brighton and Hove Albion at Portman Road tonight.

Ipswich Town’s next home game takes place tonight – but how well do you know the opposition?

Ipswich Town captain Luke Chambers says the team has got to start trying to entertain the fans more ahead of tonight’s Championship clash with Brighton at Portman Road (7.45pm ko).

Ipswich Town skipper Luke Chambers feels criticism of him playing at right-back has been unjustified, but admits he’d love to nail down his preferred position of centre-back again.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy will continue to deploy a safety-first tactical approach heading into back-to-back home games.

Ipswich Town have nine players out injured for tomorrow night’s visit of Championship high-fliers Brighton, but the good news is that Grant Ward and Teddy Bishop are both available for selection.

Mick McCarthy has plenty of credit in the bank at Ipswich Town, but that could rapidly start to run out unless things begin to change.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy conceded his team were ‘poor’ in today’s 1-0 defeat at Leeds United and admitted a lack of goals is a concern.
