Three points please

Tomorrow we face Paul Jewell's Ipswich Town side and we should find this a much more comfortable match than of late. As long as we can weather some early pressure, the game should swing our way and I believe we can add some much needed balance to our early season results if Chris Powell is prepared to be more adventurous and not leave it too late as he has done in recent defeats.

A quick scan through the Ipswich Town website tells you that their experience is largely upfront. They rely on Jason Scotland, Michael Chopra and Paul Taylor to score their goals. Taylor was injured in the week's 0-2 home defeat to Wolves, Chopra has been struggling with form of late and Jason Scotland has never really lit the blue touch-paper. Lee Martin lurks as a potential nemesis and we will have to hope he has one of his frequent off-days as opposed to one of his purple patches.

I can definitely see us scoring at Portman Road and two goals should be enough to win the game, move us up the table and put us in much better fettle with two home games to come. It should also calm the manic depressives amongst us and once again get us looking upwards.
