TEAM NEWS: Mick McCarthy names unchanged side for Boxing Day visit to Charlton

12:21 26 December 2012

Charlton v Ipswich: Blues boss Mick McCarthy has opted against making any chances from the side that drew 1-1 with Bristol City on Saturday.

The Town manager hinted after the disappointing home draw that he was considering tweaking his side while Daryl Murphy sustained a knee injury during the match.

But the Irish striker keeps his place with the only difference from the weekend’s 18-man squad being Jason Scotland replacing Elliott Hewitt on the bench.

Charlton make four changes from the team that lost 2-0 at Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend and are skippered by Haverhill boy Michael Morrison.

Among their side is McCarthy favourite and Arsenal loanee Emmanuel Frimpong and former Town players Danny Haynes and Ricardo Fuller.


Ipswich: Henderson, Orr, Chambers, Smith, Cresswell, Edwards (c), N’Daw, Dury, Martin, Campbell, Murphy. Subs – Loach, Higginbotham, Emmanuel-Thomas, Chopra, Scotland, Hyam, Reo-Coker

Charlton: Hamer, Solly, Cort, Morrison, Seaborne, Green, Frimpong, Stephens, Haynes; Fuller, Hulse. Subs – Sullivan, Jackson, Pritchard, Kermorgant, Evina, Harriott, Dervite


Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy believes Newcastle United are destined for the Championship title after his team were comfortably beaten 3-0 at St James’ Park this afternoon.

The extra quality of Championship table-toppers Newcastle United showed as Ipswich Town were comfortably beaten 3-0 at St James’ Park this afternoon.

Ipswich will be looking to notch up another win after defeating Burton, while Newcastle will be aiming to stay top of the table, but both sets of fans will be remembering the former manager their clubs shared – Sir Bobby Robson.

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy says it would be tantamount to tactical suicide to go all-out attack at Championship table-toppers Newcastle United this afternoon.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy has everything crossed that the fit-again Daryl Murphy does not come back to haunt his side at Championship table-toppers Newcastle United tomorrow.

At last! Ipswich Town have scored some goals – and after 10 months Freddie Sears even managed to grab one as well, much to the delight of himself and his teammates.

Being a dad helped Freddie Sears switch off from football during his recent 38-game goalless spell.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy admits he was a relieved man after his team finally got back to winning ways tonight.

Ipswich Town returned to winning ways, ending a five-game goal drought, as Luke Chambers and Freddie Sears scored in each half of a 2-0 home triumph over Burton Albion.
