Ipswich Town’s frightening February fixture list starts with the visit of third-place Reading this afternoon.

Follow our live feed for pre- and post-match analysis, team news, reaction and live Tweets from our chief football writer Stuart Watson at Portman Road.

The Blues really need a result following a difficult week. No striker was signed on a permanent basis on transfer deadline day, skipper Luke Chambers saw a move to Nottingham Forest blocked at the last minute, while manager Mick McCarthy reiterated he will consider his future this summer following Tuesday night’s 3-0 home loss to Derby.

Whatever the result there will be full reaction to the game in Monday’s East Anglian Daily Times and Ipswich Star newspapers.
