5 goals, 2 assists: Could this be the season that this Ipswich Town man pushes on?

Published

After experiencing a dismal 2018/19 campaign which culminated in relegation from the second-tier, Ipswich Town have made a bright start to life in League One under manager Paul Lambert.

The Tractor Boys, who have yet to lose a game in the third-tier, are currently top of the league standings and look almost certain to challenge for automatic promotion this season.

Whilst summer signing James Norwood has grabbed most of the headlines for Ipswich in recent weeks due to his goal-scoring exploits, fellow forward Kayden Jackson has also been mightily impressive.

Having struggled considerably for form last season for the Tractor Boys following his move from Accrington Stanley, the 25-year-old has been superb during the current campaign.

Thoroughly enjoying life in League One, it will be intriguing to see whether Jackson can continue to perform consistently for Ipswich.

Here, in our latest spotlight article, we ask whether this could be the season that the forward pushes on by taking a closer look at his recent statistics.

Having played a total of 816 minutes of action so far this season, it is safe to say that Jackson is very much a mainstay in Ipswich’s side.

During the eleven appearances that the forward has made this year, the forward has illustrated a real eye for goal.

As well as finding the back of the net on five occasions for Ipswich, Jackson has also registered 14 shots on target.

Currently joint-fifth in the League One goal-scoring charts alongside Norwood, the former Wrexham man will be determined to add to his collection in the coming weeks.

Providing that he can continue to produce the goods for the Tractor Boys, Jackson could inspire his side to a top-two finish next May.

As well scoring goals, the forward has also shown that he is more than capable of setting up his team-mates.

With two assists to his name already this season, Jackson is seemingly making significant improvements to his all-round game which could come in handy if the Tractor Boys are to make an immediate return to the Championship.

Given that the forward has only achieved a pass success rate of 69.4% during the opening weeks of the new term, it is paramount that he makes some adjustments to this particular facet of his game.

Furthermore, when you consider that Jackson has won just 14.9% of his aerial duels, it is clear that he is by no means the finished product.

However, if he continues to learn from Lambert’s guidance, there is no reason why the forward cannot achieve a real breakthrough campaign this year.
