TEAM NEWS: Daryl Murphy replaces Tyrone Barnett up front for visit of Millwall

14:20 08 December 2012

Ipswich v Millwall: DARYL Murphy has been elevated to the starting line-up for today’s visit of in-form Millwall following some impressive displays off the bench.

Having scored in the 3-1 home win against Nottingham Forest and won a penalty in the 2-1 victory at Bolton, the Irishman replaces Peterborough loanee Tyrone Barnett up front.

That is Mick McCarthy’s only change following last week’s turnaround at the Reebok Stadium.

With Luke Hyam and Nigel Reo-Coker still injured, Andy Drury retains his place in the centre of midfield. Right-back Bradley Orr (neck) and centre-back Luke Chambers (ill) have been passed fit after missing some training this week.

Millwall come into this game off the back of a 13-game unbeaten run, having kept clean sheets in their last four games.

Lions boss Kenny Jackett has made two changes to the team which drew 0-0 at home against Charlton last weekend. James Henry and Liam Trotter – the latter an ex-Blues player – return to the starting line-up after injury, replacing Liam Feeney and Josh Wright respectively.

IPSWICH TOWN (4-4-2): Henderson; Orr, Chambers, Smith, Cresswell; Edwards (cpt), Drury, N’Daw, Martin; Campbell, Murphy.

Subs: Loach, Hewitt, Higginbotham, Carson, Emmanuel-Thomas, Chopra, Barnett.

MILLWALL (4-1-3-1): Forde; Smith, Shittu (cpt), Beevers, Lowry; Abdou; Henry, Trotter, Taylor; Wood, Keogh.

Subs: Taylor, Wright, Feeney, Smith, N’Guessan, Osborne, Malone.

Referee: David Coote

  • Hmmm one mercenary in, one mercenary out... just the five non-Ipswich players playing for Ipswich and two ridiculously warming the bench. Shameful really - but as pre-season relegation favourites Milwall have surely peaked, Town ought to win this one quite comfortably with their half-a-team approach to maximising offshore profits.
