TEAM NEWS: Mings starts, with Marriott on the bench at Burnley

Burnley v Ipswich: BLUES boss Mick McCarthy has named an experimental side for a fairly meaningless season-finale at Burnley.

There are four changes to the team which secured Championship safety with a 3-1 home win over Birmingham.

Young left-back Tyrone Mings – a December signing from non-league club Chippenham – makes his debut for the club, while Richard Stearman is back after a hamstring injury and both Patrick Kisnorbo and Anthony Wordsworth start.

Aaron Cresswell – who could end up playing every minute of every game this season – has been pushed forwards to left-midfield, with Luke Chambers, Jay Tabb, Guirane N’Daw and Elliott Hewitt all drop to the bench,

Teenage striker Jack Marriott – who has scored 26 goals at youth team level this season – is on the bench for the first time, with both Michael Chopra and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas dropping out of the squad.

Lee Martin is also among the subs. The EADT understands that the winger is still deciding whether to accept a new contract on significantly reduced terms,

The EADT also understands that both Arran Lee-Barrett and Andy Drury have been told they will be released. Lee-Barrett is on the bench, but Drury has not travelled due to the fact his partner is due to give birth.
