TEAM NEWS: Ipswich Town unchanged at Watford

Watford v Ipswich: IPSWICH Town manager Paul Jewell has named an unchanged side at Watford tonight following his side’s encouraging 1-1 home draw with Blackburn Rovers three days’ previous.

It means that the Blues continue to play a 4-2-3-1 formation, with in-form striker Jason Scotland kept on the bench for an impact later in the match.

Town have lost 12 and drawn three of their 15 games against the Hornets.

Gianfranco Zola’s new-look side have received a boost with highly-rated young midfielder Sean Murray and new loanees Daniel Pudil and Matej Vydra all passing fitness tests.
