Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy could give a number of fringe players and youngsters the chance to impress at already-relegated Rotherham United on Saturday.

With the Blues safe from relegation with three games to go, McCarthy could consider fielding the likes of Danny Rowe, Kieffer Moore, Dominic Samuel, Andre Dozzell, Paul Digby and Trystan Nydam for the clash in South Yorkshire.

He will, however, revert to his strongest line-up for next Saturday’s home game against play-off chasing Sheffield Wednesday and the final game of the campaign at relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest.

“I will change the team for Rotherham,” McCarthy told the official Club website.

“I want to see a couple of players come in and see if they can make a challenge for their position.

“We’ve got Sheffield Wednesday here and I want to win that with a full strength team, hopefully playing like we did against Burton and Newcastle.

“We’re going to Nottingham Forest on the last day and looking at how things are going, there could be something riding on that.

“If that’s the case I won’t mess around with the team for that either.

“I think I have to respect the integrity of it all, I shouldn’t turn up with a team I wouldn’t normally pick and suddenly get slapped if it affects the top six or bottom three.”

Ipswich Town take on Championship table-toppers Leeds United, at Elland Road, on Saturday.

Ipswich Town skipper Luke Chambers says no-one at Portman Road is getting carried away by the start to the season the Blues have made – but they are ‘enjoying the ride’.

Ipswich Town sit fifth in the Championship table, with five wins from their first seven games – so why are some fans still so negative?

Ipswich Town Ladies face old rivals Norwich City tonight in the first East Anglian derby of the season.

Defender Adam Webster made his return from injury and Ben Morris notched a brace as Ipswich Town Under 23s put five past Nottingham Forest last night.

My mates who support other teams just don’t understand. They glance at the results, and the Championship table, and send me texts saying things like: “I bet you’re thrilled with your team.”

It is a discussion which keeps rumbling on – should players celebrate when they score against former teams?
