Decisions, decisions, for Keane

IPSWICH Town boss Roy Keane has a selection headache, looking ahead to tomorrow’s visit of Swansea.

IPSWICH Town boss Roy Keane has a selection headache, looking ahead to tomorrow’s visit of Swansea.

Damien Delaney returns from a one-match suspension, while the loanee quartet of Rory Fallon, Gianni Zuiverloon, Jack Colback and Jake Livermore are all available after the Carling Cup win over West Brom on Wednesday night.

However, Keane might be loathe to take too many changes to a team that beat the Baggies 1-0 to reach the semi-finals.

“I’ve made changes to winning teams in the past, and it’s horses for courses,” explained Keane.

“But I also have to be fair to the players that did so well against West Brom. They’ll be itching to stay in the team.

“In a sense it might have been good for some of the players to have had to watch on Wednesday night, to see the passion and energy in the team,” added Keane.
