TEAM NEWS: Ipswich Town unchanged for fifth successive game

14:14 29 December 2012

Wolves v Ipswich: Mick McCarthy has named an unchanged starting XI for the fifth successive game.

The Blues boss is returning to Molineux for the first time since he was controversially sacked back in February, with a resurgent Ipswich able to close the gap on their inconsistent Midlands hosts to just one point with victory.

Wolves boss Stale Solbakken has made two changes to his side following a 3-0 home defeat to Peterborough on Wednesday. Bjorn Sigurdarson replaces Jermaine Pennant on the right wing, while defensive midfielder David Davis comes in for Tongo Doumbia.

– Report and reaction to follow.

WOLVES (4-4-2): Ikeme; Foley, Johnson, Berra, Ward; Sigurdarson, Henry, Davis, Sako; Doyle, Ebanks-Blake.

Subs: De Vries, Stearman, Batth, Doumbia, Forde, O’Hara, Pennant.

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

Subs: Loach, Higginbotham, Reo-Coker, Hyam, Emmanuel-Thomas, Chopra, Scotland.
