The Big Preview: Ipswich Town (A)

Seasiders Take On The Tractor Boys

22 November 2019

Blackpool will take a six-match unbeaten run on the road this weekend, as the Seasiders face second placed Ipswich Town.

Victory for Simon's Grayson's side, who have won four consecutive matches in all competitions, would cut the gap to the automatic promotion spots, however the hosts do have two games in hand on the teams around them. 

Portman Road hasn't been the most favourable of grounds for Blackpool down the years, so the team will be looking to change that record for the better and keep up that winning momentum. 

Team News: 

The Seasiders welcome Jordan Thompson, Rocky Bushiri and Christoffer Mafoumbi back from international commitments, though a couple of other players face late fitness checks. 

The Tractor Boys head into the match after an Emirates FA Cup replay at Lincoln City on Wednesday night and are set to recall strike pair James Norwood and Kayden Jackson. Luke Chambers is also expected to be restored to the line-up. 

The Manager's View: 

The Referee: 

Championship official Stephen Martin will oversee proceedings at Portman Road, having last refereed a Blackpool game in April 2015.
