FED-up Jim Magilton is ready to jettison some old favourites in order to stop the continuous flow of silly goals conceded at set plays.
The Blues boss's patience snapped after losing by two bad goals at home to Sheffield Wednesday.
Magilton said: “We have people who have been here a long time with the opportunity to play, but we still keep conceding the same sort of goals, so it is time to change personnel.

“The changes will come from within and we also need new bodies. New loanee Matthew Bates is a young player with hunger and desire, and he will play on Sunday. We also have another player lined up to come in on loan and he, too, will play.”
Mark Noble limped out of the game with what he hopes is a minor knee injury and today returns to Upton Park after his loan spell finished.

Noble, who won the Player of the Month for September, is being linked with a move to Norwich and his old coach Peter Grant, but admits he would prefer to play in the Premiership with his mother club, or return to Portman Road.
Noble said: “I've loved my time at Ipswich and been really happy. I'll be sad to go.”
