Ipswich Town midfielder Jack Taylor knows that his side face a daunting task away at West Brom tomorrow, having suffered a heavy defeat on his last trip to the Hawthorns back in January 2022.

The 25-year-old started against the Baggies for Peterborough United, who were battling hard to stay in the Championship at the time.

However, a late flurry of goals saw the hosts secure a comfortable 3-0 win, with the Posh managing just one shot all game.

“It was obviously a tough place to go,” he reflected. “They were doing quite well at the time.

“They’ve got Championship experience and quality, so it’ll be another tough game, but one that we’re going to attack.”

Taylor clearly harnesses negative memories about that match, as well as the 2021/22 campaign as a whole.

Like Town, his Peterborough side won promotion after finishing second place in League One, but they suffered an immediate relegation to the third tier after finishing in 22nd place.

He knows that the Blues are fighting a totally different battle, however, meaning that this season has felt totally different to his last in the Championship.

“We [Peterborough] were always at the bottom rather than being at the top of the league,” he explained.

“All the games were a bit different and we weren’t playing how we are here.

“I’m really enjoying my time here and how the gaffer is implementing my style to the team.

“I was really happy to the start the other day [vs Swansea City], so long may it continue.”

Ipswich haven’t beaten West Brom since December 2010, although the two teams have been in different divisions for most of the last few years.

Kieran McKenna will be looking to guide them to a first win at the Hawthorns since 1999, knowing that three points will take them to the top of the Championship if Leicester City fail to beat Watford tomorrow afternoon.
