Ipswich To Bop Robins

The omens are good for Town who seem to play better away than at home as they go to Bristol City who are atrocious home and away.

Vital Quotes:

Town boss Mick McCarthy is confident we will stay up, and beating one of the relegation rivals will help in doing just that.
He said in his pre-match presser: "We`ll be all right because of the attitude of them, they`re fantastic.
'I`m not saying that just for soundbites, that`s based on what they`ve achieved since November 1st.
"Since I`ve walked in here they`ve been terrific, the results that we`ve had, the points that we`ve taken, the manner in which we`ve played and we`ll be all right, providing we don`t get injuries or illness or suspensions."

Robins boss Sean O`Driscoll is looking for City to bounce back - literally.
He told the Bristol Post: "I had a letter from one fan asking me to mention getting the ground bouncing in one of my press conferences.

"The letter alerted me to the fact [former boss] Gary Johnson once did it and it generated a great atmosphere inside the stadium.

"Gary had great success at Bristol City and if I can emulate that in any way then it would be great. Perhaps asking fans to bounce is the secret."

Bristol City Team News:

The big player missing for the Robins is Albert Adamoah, who Ipswich looked at but did not make a peoper move for when he was at Barnet, as he playing in the African Cup of Nations.
Paul Anderson is hoping to be fit after recovering from a calf injury.

Player to watch: Jon Stead

Would love to score against his old club

Ipswich Town Team News:

Town could go with an unchanged side if they want, although they may look to freshen things up a bit.
Bradley Orr, a former Bristol City defender, plays his last game of his loan spell before he returns to Blackburn at right-back.
Andy Drury could repalce Luke Hyam alongside Guirane N`Daw, while daryl Murphy could get the nod over Aaron Mclean and partner David McGoldrick up top.

Player to watch: David McGoldrick
