Under-fire Ipswich manager Roy Keane has been left with no choice but to field a young side for the Carling Cup quarter-final with West Brom.
A dire run of eight losses in 12 games, the most recent a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of fierce rivals Norwich on Sunday, has seen Keane's position come under scrutiny.
Keane is aware that his first cup quarter-final as a manager could be one of his most important fixtures to date and would ideally like to field a full-strength side against Roberto Di Matteo's Barclays Premier League side.
But injuries, suspension and the loss of four loan signings mean that the former Manchester United captain will have to hope that his young guns can pull off a desperately needed win at Portman Road.
He said: "I'll be going with a young team, once again. I haven't been too pleased about that, over the last month or two, because we have been playing too many young players at the same time.
"But I don't really have any choice for tomorrow night."
Keane is without defender Damien Delaney, who was sent off at Carrow Road on Sunday, while right-back Gianni Zuiverloon is on loan from Albion and barred from facing his parent club.
Goalkeeper Marton Fulop is a doubt with an ankle injury, Connor Wickham has a thigh problem and loanees Rory Fallon, Jack Colback and Jake Livermore are all unavailable.
One player who could feature is Argentinian winger Luca Civelli, who has been out of action since injuring his knee against Burnley in March 2009.
Civelli was an unused substitute at the weekend but Keane could be tempted to throw him in against the Baggies.
He said: "It's good to have Luca back in the group. We felt he needed something different from the reserves so he has been involved and he has a chance for tomorrow night.
"Ideally we would like to bring him in and then take him out again, ease him back in gently because of the injury. Give him a cameo role or two. But we can't do that.
"Is he ready to start against West Brom? That's a big question mark but we are without a lot of players so he has a chance of featuring."
Meanwhile, West Brom midfielder Somen Tchoyi is hoping an impressive performance against Ipswich can bolster his chances of becoming a Premier League regular.
The Cameroon international showed his quality with a stunning goal as a substitute in Albion's 4-1 win at Everton on Saturday.
It was his third goal in five appearances, including one on his full Premier League debut in the shock 2-2 draw away to Manchester United.
Tchoyi has been largely confined to a bit-part role, but has started the Baggies last two Carling Cup ties and netted in the 4-1 success at Leicester in the previous round.
Now he is hoping he can impress at Portman Road, if selected, and put himself in the frame to start Sunday's home league encounter with Newcastle.
Tchoyi said: "I want to play. I came to England to play in the big league. I am working hard for the team and to try and get more time on the pitch.
"Every time I play I try my best to show what I can do. Tomorrow's game - if I am chosen - is a big chance for me to show I'm worthy of a starting place against Newcastle on Sunday.
"I was really pleased with my performance against Everton when I came on, and goals give you confidence."
Tchoyi admits he had little knowledge of the Carling Cup before joining West Brom, but is keen to play at Wembley.
He said: "I was not that aware of the Carling Cup. It is my first season in England. But I just know it would be massive to play at Wembley and we are a couple of steps away.
"We're taking the competition step by step and every win in it gives us joy. We will try our best to win again and we will be treating it just like a Premier League game. We will be taking the game seriously."
Midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu will be suspended for the clash as he starts a two-game ban after being sent off for two bookable offences during the win at Goodison Park, his second red card of the season.
Tractor Boys into semis
Under-fire Roy Keane guided npower Championship side Ipswich into the semi-finals of the Carling Cup with a 1-0 win over top-flight West Brom in front of only a 11,300 crowd at Portman Road.
The former Manchester United midfielder has endured a difficult relationship with Town supporters following a dire run of form which saw them slip to 16th in the npower Championship following Sunday's 4-1 defeat to East Anglia rivals Norwich.
However, Keane's battling team - hit by injuries and unavailable loan players - secured their place in the last four through a second-half penalty from Grant Leadbitter.
West Brom made nine changes for the trip to a freezing Suffolk, with youngster James Hurst, 18, making his debut at right-back, as defender Marek Cech and midfielder Graham Dorrans were the only survivors from the 4-1 Barclays Premier League win at Everton.
Keane had accepted in his programme notes "there is no hiding place for a manager", and the side he put out certainly did not shy away from their challenge.
The 10,000 or so home supporters who had turned out almost something to cheer inside the first two minutes when Hungarian Tamas Priskin got away down the right and his low cross into the six-yard box cannoned off captain David Norris and just over the angle.
West Brom looked dangerous on the counter-attack, with Marc-Antoine Fortune's angled strike pushed behind by stand-in keeper Brian Murphy.
It should have been 1-0 on 15 minutes when Priskin brushed off Pablo Ibanez as they chased into the right side of the West Brom box, before cutting the ball back to Jason Scotland - but his close-range effort was straight at Boaz Myhill.
At the other end, Giles Barnes latched onto a high ball into the Ipswich box to stab an angled shot goalwards, which Murphy blocked.
Moments later and the Ipswich keeper was backpedalling to touch Dorrans' cross over the bar and then flapped at another ball into the box, which Simon Cox could only hook over.
The Town faithful appealed for a penalty when the ball ricocheted up onto Steven Reid's arm, but referee Michael Jones waved play on before Leadbitter then tested Myhill with a low drive, which rebounded just away from Tommy Smith.
Ipswich were awarded a free-kick in a central position, some 22 yards out, when Cox barged over Blues captain Norris.
Leadbitter chipped the pass back up neatly, but his volley was straight at Myhill.
Town were again screaming for a penalty when Priskin went down under Myhill's diving challenge, but once more neither the referee or his nearside assistant were interested - much to Keane's annoyance.
Ipswich made a change at the start of the second half when Reggie Lambe was replaced by Carlos Edwards.
West Brom had a chance when the ball was floated into the penalty area and Cox turned to guide it just wide of the far post.
Ipswich took the lead from a controversial penalty on 69 minutes.
Edwards stole possession off Marek Cech and scampered away down the right.
He charged towards the area, and was tripped by Dorrans. While contact looked just outside the box, the referee pointed to the penalty spot.
Leadbitter made no mistake from 12 yards to put the Championship side within reach of the semi-finals.
West Brom brought on Ishmael Miller, for Fortune, as Roberto di Matteo looked to breathe fresh life into his attack.
Ipswich pressed for a second to kill off the tie - and almost had it when Scotland's close-range strike hit Priskin on the line.
Cox saw his shot on the turn deflected over and Murphy saved well from Ibanez at point-blank range.
Priskin broke clear, but then drilled wide - and after three minutes of stoppage time as the snow fell on Portman Road, it was the Blues who took their place in the last four.
