Leicester are in second, just a point back and with a game in hand, with Leeds United in third, two points off Town.

Southampton, who at one point looked out of the race, are in fourth, five points behind the Blues with a game in hand. They won 3-0 against Preston last night and will play three more times before Town next kick a ball in anger at Hull a week on Saturday (8pm).

“I just think that the way Ipswich are playing and their late winners, I think they’ve got that team spirit to get up," he enthused.  

"I think if Leeds don’t come up in the top two, they’ll win the playoffs.

“They’re a very strong side, but I fancy Leicester and Ipswich to come up.”
