Last Saturday’s game against Preston was hardly the most entertaining affair you’ll ever see at Portman Road and the visitors were well worthy of their replay chance, a game in all honesty we could do without. I thought that we made too many changes to the starting line-up and Mick McCarthy admitted this afterwards. But he was right that he has to give his fringe players a game sometime, it’s a shame they didn’t make more of an effort to take their chance!
Tomorrow we host QPR and this will be a real test of our side – a side that cost around £250,000 against The R’s who cost around… well, many, many, many more times that figure and they have Joey Barton for us to look forward to seeing too.
