Last meeting

Opposing View

“It’s our home game, it’s one we want to win. We’ve lost a lot of players and I need some players back from injury. I have seven midfielders out at the moment. Will any of them back on Boxing Day? I don’t know."

Ollie on Ipswich

"Ipswich will be very consistent in the way Mick (McCarthy) plays. I think he has a fantastic group of lads there who are having a very, very good season and it will be a tough ask. I see us continuing to grow, we have an away win under our belt now and if we can get another one up there then it will be another big boost."
