Ipswich Town will be looking to reclaim top spot in League One on Tuesday when they head to the Crown Oil Arena to face Rochdale.
After suffering back-to-back defeats in the third-tier to Accrington Stanley and Rotherham United, the Tractor Boys recently secured a confidence-boosting victory over Southend United.
A brace from James Norwood combined with a strike from Kayden Jackson resulted in Ipswich sealing all three points on their travels.
Having been overtaken in the League One standings by Wycombe Wanderers at the weekend, the Tractor Boys will be determined to send out a signal of intent to the rest of the division tomorrow against Rochdale.
Although Ipswich are unquestionably favourites to secure victory, they cannot afford to underestimate Brian Barry-Murphy’s side.
Here, we take a look at the XI we expect Ipswich manager Paul Lambert to go with against Rochdale…
Having achieved a relative amount of success against Southend by utilising the 4-4-2 formation, Lambert will stick with this particular set-up tomorrow.
Will Ipswich Town achieve promotion this season?
Will Norris will keep his place in goal ahead of Tomas Holy following an impressive performance in the club’s clash with the Shrimpers.
Whilst Luke Garbutt is set to line-up on the left-hand side of defence, Luke Woolfenden may be asked to feature at right-back with Kane Vincent-Young missing out due to a groin injury.
If the defender does play this particular role, James Wilson could line-up alongside Luke Chambers at the Crown Oil Arena.
Having impressed on numerous occasions since joining the club earlier this year, the 30-year-old will be determined to deliver the goods against Rochdale.
Gwion Edwards will feature on the left-wing whilst Danny Rowe will play on the right-hand side of midfield.
Whereas Flynn Downes will keep his place in Ipswich’s starting eleven, Jon Nolan could replace Cole Skuse who is currently struggling with a groin issue.
Jackson will be accompanied by Norwood up-front who could take his tally for the season to eight tomorrow night.
