It has been a tough week for Ipswich Town after they suffered last-gasp heartbreak in the East Anglian derby before losing to Cardiff City in the week.
The Tractor Boys looked to have recorded a rare win over their bitter rivals Norwich City on Sunday, only for Timm Klose to equalise deep into stoppage time.
Then, despite playing fairly well, high-flying Cardiff grabbed a 1-0 win at Portman Road thanks to a disputed Kenneth Zohore goal.
Unfortunately for Mick McCarthy things don’t get any easier this weekend as they make the trip to Preston.
Alex Neil’s men have had a fine season and have made themselves really hard to beat, with only leaders Wolves losing fewer games than the Lancashire side in this campaign so far.
However, Ipswich will take confidence from their past two performances and will believe they can come away with something from Deepdale.
Here we look at the team McCarthy will go with.
