Ipswich Town vs. Burnley - FA Cup Fourth Round - Football
Away from home in the league, they have won seven, drawn four and lost two, the fourth-best form on the road in their division. In round three of the FA Cup, they won 4-2 away at AFC Bournemouth with Manuel Benson and Anass Zaroury netting two apiece. Town go into the match off the back of Tuesday’s 4-0 mauling of Morecambe at Portman Road, however, McKenna says that hasn’t really had much of an impact on his preparations for the visit by the Clarets. “It’s not changed much, to be honest, ” he said.
I think it’s fantastic really, ” he said. “It’s a big effort, the cup games aren’t included in the season tickets either, so we’re grateful and thankful to the supporters for coming out in those sort of numbers to support us. “I don’t think there are many clubs who are going to have that sort of percentage of capacity for the FA Cup games this week anywhere in the country. “It’s a big credit to them.
Last week’s new signing Harry Clarke is cup-tied having played for Stoke City in their 3-0 win at Hartlepool in the last round. Greg Leigh may get a start on the left with Kayden Jackson perhaps in line to come in on the right. Skipper Sam Morsy might be one of those to keep his place in the team, perhaps alongside Massimo Luongo, who would be making his second Blues debut, although Cameron Humphreys is also a potential starter. McKenna has plenty of options for the number 10 roles with Sone Aluko and Kyle Edwards both likely to be keen for starts. McKenna may want to get more minutes into Nathan Broadhead following his impressive full debut against the Shrimps, while top scorer Conor Chaplin and Marcus Harness are other options. Up front, McKenna may look to give George Hirst a second start as the on-loan Leicester man gets up to speed following his lack of involvement during his previous loan spell at Blackburn.
