Match Preview: Ipswich Town

13 December 2019

All the pre-match info heading into Saturday's game in East Anglia.

After an enthralling comeback against Southend United last weekend, the Gas travel across the country in high spirits to face Ipswich Town.

In the win against Southend, four goalscorers contributed to bounce back from being two behind at the break, with Jonson Clarke-Harris and Abu Ogogo slotting home before Ed Upson emphatically put the Gas in the lead with a half-volley from the edge of the area. Alfie Kilgour then scored his first League goal for Rovers to secure victory.

The three points propelled Graham Coughlan's side to fifth in the league, with a game in hand on most of the side's around them.

Coach's Preview: Coughlan sat down the press on Thursday morning ahead of his side's away trip to Ipswich, and reflected on the character shown by his side in that 4-2 win.

Player's Preview: After missing last weekend's action-packed thriller through suspension, captain Ollie Clarke spoke to the press ahead of his return to the side this weekend. 

Opposition: The Tractor Boys' early-season form highlighted them as clear league title favorites, but a sticky patch of late has seen their title push falter, now sitting 2nd, four points ahead of the play-offs. The side from East Anglia have not won in the league since bonfire night, and have endured a run of draws in the competition, coming against Blackpool, Wycombe, and Coventry. Despite that, they have clear talent in their ranks, with striker James Norwood grabbing seven goals from 13 league starts so far. Elsewhere, Lambert's boys have to be credited for their defensive ability, conceding just 13 league goals all season, the lowest in the division.

Tickets: Advanced tickets are now off-sale for this weekend's trip, but tickets can be purchased on the day at cash-only turnstiles. Check the details below.
