TEAM NEWS: Scott Loach starts in goal against Leeds

Ipswich v Leeds: ONE enforced change in goal is the only alteration to the Ipswich Town side which beat Bolton Wanderers 1-0 prior to the international break.

Keeper Scott Loach replaces Stephen Henderson after the latter was recalled by West Ham last weekend.

Guirane N’Daw – who missed the last outing in police custody – is on the bench. The Senegalese midfielder is due in court on an assault charge on Tuesday.

Henderson’s absence opens up a place for another domestic loanee in the Ipswich squad. Manchester United defender Reece Brown gets the nod over striker Aaron Mclean.

Leeds United boss Neil Warnock has made three changes to the side which lost 2-1 at home to Huddersfield.
