Town Look To Tame Tigers

Ipswich Town
vs.
Hull City

Portman Road

April 13

3pm

Ipswich have been shocking in front of goal all season so the absence of David McGoldrick will be all the more obvious as Town take on second-placed Hull.
The up side, if you can call it that, is the Blues are a difficult side to score against these days and the threat of relegation lifts with each hard fought dull draw, or sneaky 1-0 win.
The Tigers have stuttered of late but are still within range of a Premier League return.

Vital Quotes:

Ipswich Town Team News:

Michael Chopra is likely tostart up front in place of McGoldrick with Daryl Murphy looking to make his 200th English league appearance.

Will need to be on his toes

Hull City Team News:

Former Blues favourite Alex Bruce misses out through injury but defender Jack Hobbs could make an unlikely return from a serious-looking ankle injury suffered against Watford.
Steve Bruce is confident striker Matty Fryatt could play for the first time since August after suffering an Achilles injury.

Dangerous playmaker if he starts
