'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ipswich Town vs. Millwall

Portman Road

Saturday December 8

3pm

Town To Tame Lions

An upbeat Ipswich tackle high-flying Millwall with renewed confidence.
Town are looking to go four games unbeaten, and a third win on the bounce under manager Mick McCarthy.
Millwall are serious play-off contenders with Kenny Jackett building a solid side that plays good football and can also intimidate with their size and strength.

Vital Quotes:

Tommy Smith told the club website: "Chris is a good mate of mine and it will be good to come up against him on Saturday if we are both playing.
"He`s scoring goals for fun at the moment and he`s definitely one player we will have to keep an eye on.

"I wish him all the best after Saturday but for the 90 minutes I hope he doesn`t get a kick."

Liam Trotter told the Green 'Un: "If I score I`ll definitely be doing a celebration.
"I`ve got nothing but respect for Ipswich, they`re my home-town club and gave me my big break but I`ll celebrate every goal I score. It`s a short career and, as a midfielder, you have to enjoy every goal you get.

'There has never been any grudge against Ipswich. It just wasn`t the right time or place for me.

"It was a hard decision at the time, but I`m happy I made the right one.

"I`ll always want Ipswich to do well, as long as they finish one place below Millwall."
