Town Look To Tame Tigers

Ipswich Town
vs.
Hull City

Portman Road

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:

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.
