Destiny is in Town's own hands

WITH all seven teams below them in the Championship still to play in the remaining 13 games, Ipswich Town's destiny is very much in their own hands.Once they get the difficult trip to old manager George Burley's Southampton out of the way on Saturday, and hopefully the goal dam will have burst in that match, the Blues go into March with QPR, Hull, Southend and Luton to play, with a trip to Preston and home to Plymouth in between.

Once they get the difficult trip to old manager George Burley's Southampton out of the way on Saturday, and hopefully the goal dam will have burst in that match, the Blues go into March with QPR, Hull, Southend and Luton to play, with a trip to Preston and home to Plymouth in between.
