Team News: Ipswich Town
It seems likely that The Tractor Boys look set to use a 4-2-3-1 system for the game, handing starts to Vaclav Hladky, Harry Clarke, Luke Woolfenden, Cameron Burgess, Leif Davis, Sam Morsy, Massimo Luongo, Wes Burns, Conor Chaplin, Nathan Broadhead and George Hirst.
Team News: Blackburn Rovers
Owing to a fully injury-free squad available to choose from, the Blackburn Rovers manager Jon Dahl Tomasson has zero fitness worries to report coming into this game.
We believe Rovers appear most likely to elect for a 4-2-3-1 formation, starting the game with Aynsley Pears, Callum Brittain, Hayden Carter, Dominic Hyam, Harry Pickering, Lewis Travis, Adam Wharton, Andrew Moran, Sammie Szmodics, Arnor Sigurdsson and Harry Leonard.
We’re thinking that Blackburn Rovers are dangerous enough to score a goal against this Ipswich Town side, however that realistically won’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We are anticipating a narrow 2-1 victory for Ipswich Town by the conclusion of the game. Definitely a tough call.
