Ipswich Face Dangerous Rhodes
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.

Apart from Rhodes, Town will also be up against a couple of their recent teammates in the form of DJ Campbell and Bradley Orr.
Campbell joined Rovers on a 93-day emergency loan from QPR while Orr returned to his parent club last week.
Rovers will assess the fitness of centre-back Grant Hanley after he returned from international duty with Scotland this week ahead of the 1-0 win of Estonia due to a hip complaint.
