TEAM NEWS: Luongo replaces Drury for Wolves visit

Ipswich v Wolverhampton: Ipswich Town manager Paul Jewell has made just one change to his starting line-up for the midweek visit of Wolves.

Following an unfortunate 2-0 defeat at Middlesbrough on Saturday, midfielder Andy Drury – whose misplaced pass was punished for Boro’s opener – is replaced by Tottenham loanee Massimo Luongo.

There are three changes to the Wolves side which beat Leicester 2-1 on Sunday. Striker Sylan Ebanks-Blake misses out with a hamstring injury, with Icelandic summer signing Bjon Sigurdarson starting.

The more attack-minded Razak Boukari is preferred to Slawomir Peszko on the right wing, while David Edwards replaces Tongo Doumbia in the middle of midfield.
