Daryl Murphy is an experienced old hand at Ipswich and one of the best strikers in the division, at the age of 33 he is still one of the most lethal finishers in the Championship, and has earned international call ups for his consistency.
Only last season he spearheaded the Ipswich attack, scoring 27 goals making him the division’s top scorer and he was nominated for Championship Player of the Year.
His goals led Ipswich to the play-offs, where they were beaten by arch rivals Norwich.
He suffered from a bit of a drought this season but after netting a hat trick against Rotherham he got going and now has seven goals in 23 games, with Ipswich aiming for the play-offs once again.
Mick McCarthy has built all of his Ipswich sides on a shoestring budget so the fact they challenge for the top six every season is very impressive, and also down to Murphy.
But they have been in this league longer than any other club and are desperate to make a Premier League breakthrough, and finding Murphy a consistent striker partner may be the key.
This season Murphy plays alongside Brett Pitman who’s goals helped Bournemouth to the Premier League, and at the moment is joint top scorer with Murphy.
Last season Murphy did it all on his own really with rare contributions from Freddie Sears and David McGoldrick.
