TEAM NEWS: Ipswich Town unchanged for trip to Leeds United

14:21 15 December 2012

Leeds United v Ipswich: Mick McCarthy has unsurprisingly named an unchanged side for this afternoon’s visit to Elland Road.

On the back of a four-match unbeaten run, including three straight wins, the Blues boss has resisted the temptation of bringing back fit-again Nigel Reo-Coker.

It is the same 11 who started last Saturday’s excellent 3-0 victory against Millwall, with Tyrone Barnett missing from the bench after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury on Monday.

As expected, Bilel Mohsni replaces him in the 18, with Reo-Coker also on the bench in place of Josh Carson.

For Leeds, Neil Warnock has made two changes with Jerome Thomas and El-Hadji Diouf starting for Ryan Hall and Ross McCormack.

TEAMS

Ipswich: Henderson, Orr, Chambers, Smith, Cresswell, Edwards, N’Daw, Drury, Martin, Murphy, Campbell. Subs – Loach, Hewitt, Higginbotham, Reo-Coker, Mohsni, Emmanuel-Thomas, Chopra.

Leeds: Kenny, Byram, Tate, Lees, Peltier, Green, Norris, Tonge, Thomas, Becchio, Diouf. Subs – Ashdown, Pearce, Varney, White, Brown, Hall, McCormack.
