Jonathan Douglas starts for Ipswich today

Mick McCarthy has made one change to his side for this afternoon’s trip to Rotherham, with Ainsley Maitland-Niles dropping to the bench and Jonathan Douglas coming into the starting line-up.

Midfielder Maitland-Niles opened the scoring against Bolton on Tuesday but limped off before half-time with a foot injury, although he has recovered sufficiently to take his place on the bench.

Jonathan Douglas comes in to replace him in midfield, with McCarthy naming an otherwise unchanged side.

David McGoldrick is not involved having limped out of training earlier this week, with Larsen Toure taking his place on the bench.

For the hosts, former Blues Danny Collins, Paul Green and Frazer Richardson all start, striker Matt Derbyshire returns from injury and top scorer Jonson Clarke-Harris is on the bench,
