Ipswich Town will be looking to boost their League One play-off hopes on Saturday afternoon, when they travel to The DW Stadium to face Wigan Athletic.

Paul Cook’s side go into the game 11th in the third-tier standings, two points adrift of the play-offs, having won just one of their five games since the 54-year-old’s appointment as manager.

Wigan meanwhile, go into the game 22nd in the League One table, two points form safety having won two and drawn one of their last six games, so could be something of an opportunity here for the Tractor Boys.

Perhaps with that in mind, Cook, who is of course facing his former club here, has named an Ipswich side that shows two changes from the one that lost 2-1 at Portsmouth last weekend, as Kane Vincent-Young, who starts for the first time this season, and Freddie Sears come into the side, with Keanan Bennetts and James Wilson dropping out of the matchday squad.

Taking to Twitter to react to that team news, plenty of Ipswich fans were keen to give their thoughts on their side’s starting lineup for the game.

Here, we take a look at what some of those supporters had to say.
