Match Preview: Preston North End v Ipswich Town



Preston North End and Ipswich Town are looking to maintain their unbeaten starts to the season when they meet at Deepdale.

Preston take on Mick McCarthy’s Ipswich Town

Simon’s Grayson’s Preston have began their return to the Championship with a win and two draws, while Mick McCarthy’s Ipswich sit proudly at the top of the table after two victories and a draw.

The Lilywhites have more than held their own since their promotion from League One.

They are yet to concede after keeping clean sheets in goalless draws with promotion favourites Middlesbrough and Rotherham United, as well as grafting out a 1-0 victory over fellow promoted side MK Dons.

It will be a true testament to their character should they continue their impressive defensive record against the league leaders, who have scored twice in each of their three games so far.

On reflection, the Tractor Boys will be disappointed not to have maximum points having conceded twice in stoppage time on the opening weekend against Brentford.

They have since made up for it, though, coming from behind to see off Sheffield Wednesday before two goals in five minutes helped them overcome freshly relegated Burnley on Tuesday.

The East Anglian side will be wary of the threat of Joe Garner, who scored a hat-trick in the last meeting between the sides in the 2014 FA Cup third-round replay.
