IpswichTown

Madejski Stadium

August 3

3pm

Here we go again. A new season and this tie the big kick off is accompanied by an amazing feeling of positive expectation.

With 10 new signings Mick McCarthy has assembled a squad of artisans, grafters and artistes, which could prove to be serious promotion contenders.

Reading is a tough opening test for Town but one which could tell us so much - bring it on!

Vital Quotes:

Reading Team News:

Danny Williams is a doubt for the Royals

Player to watch: Adam Le Fondre

A good finisher either as a starter or sub.

IpswichTown Team News:

Jay Tabb is likely to start against his old club.
Arron Cresswell is a big concern for Town with an injury likely to force him out of the first game of the season - ironic after he played every minute of every game last season.

Tyrone Mings is his likely replacement, although he is feeling a bit under the weather as well.

Luke Hyam is another doubt with a groin strain, while Anthony Wordsworth is struggling with a hamstring problem.

Player to watch: Davis McGoldrick

McGoldrick has been on fire in pre-season
