Team news: Rovers v Ipswich Town

Three changes for the visit of the Tractor Boys to Ewood Park

19 January 2019

Tony Mowbray has named three changes to his starting lineup against Ipswich Town, from the side that began against Newcastle United in the FA Cup.

Jack Rodwell, Corry Evans and Bradley Dack all return to the XI for the clash against the Tractor Boys, with Ryan Nyambe, Richie Smallwood and Ben Brereton all dropping to the bench.

Rodwell missed out against the Magpies through injury, whilst Dack came off the bench against the Tynesiders. Evans returns after limping off at half time against Millwall last weekend.

Former Rovers chief Paul Lambert leads Ipswich into Ewood Park today, and is armed with one of our Academy graduates in the form of schemer Alan Judge, who signed for the Suffolk side earlier this week.

Judge is one of five January signings who start for Town, with the experienced James Collins set to appear for the second time in Ipswich colours at the heart of defence.

Kick-off this afternoon is at 3pm and you can follow all the action via iFollow Rovers or across our social media channels.

Rovers: Raya, Bennett (c), Lenihan, Rodwell, Bell, Evans, Travis, Reed, Dack, Armstrong, Graham.

Substitutes: Leutwiler, Nyambe, Smallwood, Rothwell, Brereton, Nuttall, Conway.

Ipswich Town: Gerken, Chambers (c), Pennington, Chalobah, Skuse, Keane, Sears, Elder, Judge, Collins, Quaner.

Substitutes: Bialkowski, Bishop, Downes, Nsiala, Kenlock, Lankester, Dawkins.
