  9. Mick McCarthy: Wholesale changes at Ipswich Town unlikely

    Brenner Woolley

    BBC Radio Suffolk sport

    We know, it's been a busy day of news about Ipswich Town... Fans shouldn't expect to see a host of young players make their first league starts for the club in tomorrow's game against Fulham, manager Mick McCarthy has hinted.

    As we know, Saturday's goalscorer Andre Dozzell will start but Adam McDonnell and James Blanchfield are also in contention. McCarthy was non-committal when asked about their chances on Tuesday.

    "Possibly, but we haven't got six or seven I can just throw in and they're all good enough. We've got a nucleus of (senior) players who've played all of these games, with other ones drip-fed in."

  10. 'Emotional day' for Dozzell family

  16. Ipswich Town: Dozzell 'has his feet on the ground' - McCarthy

    Brenner Woolley

    BBC Radio Suffolk sport

    There's no chance of Ipswich Town's latest goal-scoring 16-year-old getting carried away by the hype surrounding his debut at the weekend, according to his manager Mick McCarthy.

    Mick McCarthy

    Following in the foot-steps of his father Jason, Andre Dozzell marked his first senior appearance for Town with a goal against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

    "He's a nice rounded lad, as his dad Jason is," said McCarthy. "They're a nice family, he's got his feet on the ground... he's just a really good kid, but he plays with a far greater maturity than a kid."
