Bradley Orr to make final loan appearance for Ipswich against Bristol City at Ashton Gate
Former Bristol City fans' favourite Bradley Orr will be available to face his former club when Ipswich visit Ashton Gate in the npower Championship on Saturday.
Orr joined the Tractor Boys on loan from Blackburn Rovers in November, since when he has made 12 appearances for Town.
Former Blackburn boss Henning Berg was prepared to let the 30-year-old right-back stay at Portman Road until the end of the season. But he has since been sacked and new boss Michael Appleton has other ideas.
He wants Orr back at Ewood Park when his original loan deal ends this weekend. But the Liverpudlian will be available to play one final game for Ipswich and is expected to line-up against his former club in a game City have to win if they are to move off the foot of the table.

Orr fell behind Wales Under-21 international Adam Henley in the Ewood Park pecking order after Berg succeeded Steve Keen as manager earlier this season. But Henley sustained a hamstring injury during the recent 2-0 FA Cup third round win over Bristol City, since when Appleton has been forced to deploy on-loan Chelsea youngster Todd Keane on the right side of his back four.
Orr clearly features in Appleton's plans and Blackburn's manager said: "He will be vital to us between now and the end of the season.
"He's got vast experience of the Championship, he's very vocal, he's a good character and he's someone I would rather have in my side than up against me."
