Town to Shoot Down Seagulls

Hopefully this will not be the final time we see DJ Campbell and Daryl Murphy in perfect harmony for Ipswich, but if it is lets hope they go out with a bang.
The big man, little man partnership has reaped rewards over the past 16 games but with DJ going back to QPR this could be his last hurrah against Brighton.

Vital Quotes:

Blues boss Mick McCarthy is in a quandry about his players' ability to make it three games in a week and said: 'They have kept themselves fit and been remarkable.

"The dilemma is whether I think they might have run out of legs while Brighton have had a game less.
"I could change it, something goes wrong, and I would regret it. Or I could keep it the same, something goes wrong, and I regret it.'

Mauricio Taricco, Seagulls' assisatnt manager, told the Brighton Argus: 'The players know what we are going to come up against and they are ready.


'I want them (Ipswich) to do well, to be a good team, of course not against us. I had a great time there, my best time as a player, even though I don't show it much.'

Ipswich Town Team News:

Town have no fresh injuries so could field an unchanged side for the fifth time in a row.
Danny Higginbotham will not be on the bench as he is set to sign for a new club, while DJ Campbell plays his last game on loan for the Blues.
