LAST SEASON

Latics 2 Ipswich 0 – Sunday 22 September 2013

 

It was a tale of the loan players after Ryan Shotton’s opener on 12 minutes and an opportunist second from Nick Powell downed Ipswich to move Latics up to 11th in the league table.

Ipswich 1 Latics 3 – Saturday 15 March 2014



After falling behind early on, James McClean inspired a comeback equalising almost straight away.

Leon Barnett headed in Jordi Gomez’s free kick, and with 13 minutes to go McClean grabbed his second of the game to wrap up the three points, lifting Latics into fifth place.

The victory was Latics’ sixth in a row in the league and eighth in all competitions.

IPSWICH IN 2014-15 SO FAR

The Tractor Boys sit 10th in the Championship with 11 points having lost just twice, both of them narrow defeats, 1-0 away to Reading and 1-0 at home to rivals Norwich City.

Mick McCarthy’s side come into the game with back-to-back 2-0 wins over Millwall and Brighton & Hove Albion, which followed up a 1-1 away draw against Derby County.

Ipswich brought in seven players permanently this summer, with names such as Cameron Stewart from Hull City, Jonathan Parr from Crystal Palace and Balint Bajner from Dortmund.

A familiar face will return to the DW Stadium as well, with the Suffolk side signing Conor Sammon on loan for the season.

MAN TO WATCH – DAVID McGOLDRICK

The highly rated striker made his come back from injury during the summer, having suffered knee ligament damage in February.

McGoldrick had scored 14 goals in 31 games before his injury set back in a 0-0 draw with Blackpool, but this season he’s looking to rediscover that goal scoring touch.

So far he’s netted twice, scoring the winner on the opening day of the campaign against Fulham, and grabbing his second of the season in the 2-0 win against Millwall.

McGoldrick has formed a solid partnership with Daryl Murphy, himself having scored three goals in seven games, but Ipswich also have a number of other players to keep an eye on, with youngster Tyrone Mings a highly rated defender in the ranks at Portman Road.
