TEAM NEWS: Ipswich v Burnley

First published in Sport

BEN Mee has failed to recover from the foot injury that forced his second-half exit against Leeds United, so Danny Lafferty comes in at left back to replace the defender.

Mee's absence is the only change from the midweek win, as Sean Dyche looks to extended his winning start as Burnley manager.

This afternoon's trip to Portman Road is Dyche's first away game since succeeding Eddie Howe at the Turf Moor helm.

For new Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy, who was previously linked with the Turf Moor vacancy, it is his first home game.

McCarthy will be looking for a reaction to the 5-0 defeat the Tractor Boys suffered at Crystal Palace in midweek, while Burnley will be looking to record only their second win at Ipswich in the club's history.

BURNLEY: Lee Grant; Kieran Trippier, Michael Duff, Jason Shackell, Danny Lafferty; Brian Stock, Dean Marney, Chris McCann; Ross Wallace, Charlie Austin, Martin Paterson.

Subs: Brian Jensen, Sam Vokes, Junior Stanislas, Danny Ings, David Edgar, Joe Mills, Marvin Bartley.

IPSWICH: Stephen Henderson, Arron Cresswell, Luke Chambers, DJ Campbell, Danny Higginbotham, Carlos Edwards, Guirane N'Daw, Richie Wellens, Tommy Smith, Nigel Reo-Coker, Daryl Murphy.

Subs: Scott Loach, Elliott, Hewitt, Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, Michael Chopra, Jason Scotland, Andy Drury, Bilel Mohsni.
