Joe Pigott starts: The predicted Ipswich Town XI to face Oldham in the FA Cup on Saturday



Ipswich Town welcome Oldham Athletic to Portman Road in the first round of the FA Cup on Saturday.

Paul Cook has had the tricky task of keeping an enormous squad happy with a host of high profile players happy over the first third of the season. The Tractor Boys go in as overwhelming favourites against Keith Curle’s men who would be satisfied with staying up in the fourth tier this campaign.

Cook has been public about his desire for a cup run this season, the organic income brought in through that would help to make up for the big money spent by the club in the summer transfer window.

The strength in depth of the squad is so outstanding that the Tractor Boys could make ten changes of the visit of Oldham and not see much of a drop-off in quality.

Here is our predicted starting XI for the cup tie.

Cook’s favourite 4-2-3-1 formation will likely remain present even outside of league action and the ten changes should appease some of the frustrated parties within the squad.

The ten alterations are as follows: Vaclav Hladky in for Christian Walton, Janoi Donacien replaces Kane Vincent-Young, Luke Woolfenden in for Toto Nsiala, Cameron Burgess replaces George Edmundson, Matt Penney comes in for Hayden Coulson, Rekeem Harper for Lee Evans, Sone Aluko for Wes Burns, Conor Chaplin for Bersant Celina, Scott Fraser in for Kyle Edwards and finally Joe Pigott replaces Macauley Bonne.

What club, who currently play in League One, did Paul Mariner arrive from in 1976?

It is anyone’s guess what the final XI will look like given the embarrassment of riches at Cook’s disposal to take on lowly Oldham.
