After a 6-0 drubbing of Doncaster Rovers over a week ago, confidence was sky-high at Ipswich Town that they could go on a run of wins to climb up the table.
However it was yet another setback which occurred last week when the Tractor Boys travelled north to Accrington Stanley, where they lost 2-1 despite taking the lead through the prolific Macauley Bonne.
Two second half goals from Stanley secured the win for John Coleman’s side and it left the Suffolk side in 19th position when they were hoping to start their rise up the League One table towards the promotion places.
They have been given a good opportunity to restart that run though as Shrewsbury Town visit Portman Road this afternoon having only won two league games all season.
That is the same amount as Ipswich but Salop have lost seven matches as opposed to Ipswich’s four and they’ve scored 11 less goals in the process.
With the size of the squad he has at his disposal Cook was expected to make changes – one being enforced thanks to Bersant Celina’s Kosovo call-up – but Celina is the only one from last weeks line-up that is absent.

Cook has decided to stick with the losing line-up of last Saturday and in comes Conor Chaplin for the only change and there’s no place in the squad for Louie Barry of Aston Villa – let’s see what Ipswich fans are saying about Cook’s selection.
Looking at that. You wouldn't give Shrewsbury a chance.
