Team News: Ipswich Town
Gwion Edwards (Thigh Problems), Flynn Downes (Knee Injury) and Stephen Ward (Achilles tendon problems) will be missing for Ipswich manager Paul Cook.
Team News: MK Dons
Thanks to a largely full-strength group of players, there is just the one fitness issue for the MK Dons boss Russell Martin to contend with. Ben Gladwin (Knee Injury) misses out for this game.
In our view, MK Dons will need to put in a solid display to breach the defence of this Ipswich Town side who we reckon will score & stay on top.
Our tip is therefore for a very competitive game with a 1-0 win for Ipswich Town at the conclusion of the game.
