Ewood Park

February 9

3pm

One of the biggest mistakes in a catalogue of errors made by various Ipswich managers and executives over the past 10 years could come back to haunt the Blues at Blackburn.
The decision to let Jordan Rhodes leave for a paltry amount for Huddersfield by Roy Keane, endorsed by Simon Clegg and Marcus Evans has already proved to be total folly and should he score against Town then few will be surprised.
