Ipswich Town will spend this week preparing for the visit of Championship strugglers, Bolton Wanderers, on Saturday.

After the weekend’s results, which saw Town slip to fourth after a 2-1 defeat at QPR, Bolton sat at the foot of the table, courtesy of a 3-0 home defeat to Middlesbrough.

One of a few positives to come out of Ipswich’s game at Loftus Road, was the late cameo from Bersant Celina, and surely now, is the time for him to start a game for the Blues.

Celina, fellow summer signing Tom Adeyemi and Town’s inability to sign a centre-back before the transfer window closed, are just three of the issues discussed in this week’s podcast, presented by Chris Brammer who, as always, is joined by Archant Chief Football Writer, Stuart Watson.

It’s that kind of season. Just when everything seems to be miserable, and the fans’ anger is mounting, along comes a victory to lighten the mood. At least temporarily, writes Northstander Terry Hunt.
