Just one change for Hull

IPSWICH Town boss Paul Jewell will make just one change for the home game against in-form Hull City this Saturday.

IPSWICH Town boss Paul Jewell will make just one change for the home game against in-form Hull City this Saturday.

Jewell revealed, during this morning’s Portman Road press conference, that he already “knew” his team for the visit of the Tigers.

Jimmy Bullard, on loan from Hull, is not allowed to play against his parent club, so that will be the one change to the side that romped to a 6-0 win at Doncaster on Tuesday night.

Recent signing Andy Drury could therefore be in line to make his first start in the Football League, in midfield, although Luke Hyam and Jaime Peters are also possibilities.

“I know I’ve shown my hand early, but I would be upset if I was to be dropped from a team that had just won 6-0,” confirmed Jewell.

And even if Jewell manages to complete the signing of defender Habib Beye on loan from Aston Villa, before this weekend, the Town boss insisted that the 33-year-old would not make his team against Hull.
