Blues Aim For Shock Win

It could be famine for feast for Ipswich at Brighton who are licking their wounds following a 1-0 loss to Birmingham.

This is exactly to sort of team Town could surprise and get a win, although, we know they could just as easily get a stuffing.

Vital Quotes:

Assistant-manager Chris Hutchins told the official website: "Mauricio Taricco was a really good player who had a good career at Ipswich.

"The reception he got at Portman Road last year just shows what a popular player he was.

"Him and Gus have done a great job down at Brighton when you think about how far they have taken the club.

"It is a new ground and they are playing a brand of football that suits them and is very appealing on the eye.

"They have been very successful. We know it will be a tough game but it is one we are looking forward to."

Brighton coach and Town legend Mauricio Taricco told seagulls.co.uk, 'We have a style and we know what we are doing. Sometimes I don't know what other clubs are trying to do, I don't see a plan, a shape or a way of playing or an identity, but we have that here which is good for us.

'That's also why I respect clubs like Stoke City, because they know what they do. People can like or dislike their style but they have a plan and they stick to it, and that's what gives a club success.

'We have an identity. Whether that's a good one or a bad one, people will agree or disagree but we try to do something every game and then hopefully results will go our way. We believe that they will go our way and that's the important thing.'
