TEAM NEWS: Cheick Kourouma starts for Ipswich at Braintree but Scott Loach is on the bench

CHEICK Kourouma will tonight start for Ipswich Town – even though his hopes of signing for the Blues remain up in the air.

The midfielder will line up alongside Jimmy Bullard in the heart of the Town midfield at Braintree Town’s Amlin Stadium.

18-year-old Tom Winter is expected to start on the wing with Nathan Ellington upfront and Jaime Peters at right-back, in what could be his last game for the Blues.

New signing Scott Loach starts on the bench while there are five academy players on the bench.
