Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy has made four changes to the Blues team that lost at Newcastle, 3-0, last Saturday, for today’s home game with the Championship’s bottom club, Rotherham United.

Jonas Knudsen misses out due to injury, Jonathan Douglas drops out of the 18 and Leon Best and Conor Grant are relegated to the bench.

As a result, in comes Myles Kenlock for his first start of the season, at left-back, while there are returns for Cole Skuse, Teddy Bishop and most significantly David McGoldrick, making his first appearance in the starting line up since the opening day.

The visitors, without a league point on the road this season, make one change, with summer signing Will Vaulks replacing Lee Frecklington in the centre of midfield.

New signing, former Stoke, West Brom and Bristol City forward, Peter Odemwingie, is on the bench for Kenny Jackett’s second game in charge, while ex-Town stopper, Lewis Price, is another Millers substitute.

Town: Bialkowski, Chambers, Webster, Berra, Kenlock, Ward, Skuse, Bishop, Lawrence, McGoldrick, Sears. Subs: Gerken, Best, Varney, Bru, Williams, Grant, Emmanuel

Rotherham: Camp, Fisher, Wood, Fry, Mattock, Halford, Taylor, Newell, Vaulks, Blackstock, Ward. Subs: Price, Kelly, Forde, Forster-Caskey, Odemwingie, Ball, Brown.
