TEAM NEWS: Three changes for Ipswich Town against Nottingham Forest

19:03 27 November 2012

Ipswich v Forest: Mick McCarthy has brought Luke Chambers, Luke Hyam and debutant Tyrone Barnett into the side to face seventh-place Nottingham Forest.


Hyam replaces hamstring-victim Nigel Reo-Coker, as McCarthy revealed yesterday, while Barnett is preferred to Michael Chopra – something that pushes Bilel Mohnsi out of the 18-man squad due to the home-based loans limit.

McCarthy has also sprung a slight surprise by restoring Chambers to the heart of his defence in place of Danny Higginbotham, who was largely to blame for Peterborough’s opener in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Portman Road.

For Forest, Simon Cox is out after sustaining an ankle injury at the weekend, Dexter Blackstock comes in.


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

Forest: Camp, Hutton, Ward, Collins, Harding, Gillett, Lansbury, Guedioura, Cohen, Sharp, Blackstock. Subs – Darlow, Moussi, McGugan, Reid, Moloney, Coppinger, Ayala.
