TEAM NEWS: Ipswich Town unchanged for Barnsley visit

Ipswich v Barnsley: MICK McCarthy has named an unchanged side for this afternoon’s home match against Barnsley in the Championship following on from an impressive goalless draw at table-toppers Cardiff.

Loanee right-back Bradley Orr – who looks like he will be recalled by parent club Blackburn Rovers following next weekend’s match at Bristol City – retains his place, as do new striker duo David McGoldrick and Aaron Mclean.

Second-from-bottom Barnsley have recorded back-to-back home wins – 1-0 against Burnley (FA Cup) and 2-0 against Leeds – with caretaker boss David Flitcroft being given the job permanently this week as a result..

The new Tykes boss has been dealt a double injury blow though, with defender Jim McNulty and midfielder Jim O’Brien both missing out. They have been replaced by Stephen Foster and Jacob Mellis respectively

IPSWICH TOWN (4-4-2): Loach; Orr, Chambers, Smith, Cresswell; Edwards (cpt), N’Daw, Hyam, Martin; Mclean, McGoldrick.
