JIM Magilton is going for goals against the gold of Wolves tonight.

With 12 goals leading scorer Alan Lee back in the side Ipswich Town are looking to break a scoring duck stretching back four games when he scored from the spot against Swansea.

The Blues have not scored from open play in 458 minutes since Danny Haynes finished eight minutes from time in the 3-2 win over Colchester United a month ago.

Although the Blues boss is not going to show his hand he did admit that they will be going with a strike partnership in the search for goals and also has Jon Walters available after being cup tied.

Magilton said: “The pairings have not been made but I will be playing two up front. Danny has given me a selection headache. Jon has done very well since he came back and Alan is available again.

“We are the home side and we have to take the game to them. If we play to our tempo then we are a match for everyone and we need to get at them from the start.”

Magilton insists his side firing blanks is not concerning him as yet.

He added: “I would be worried more if we weren't creating chances. There was a stage when we were shot shy but Saturday we were better as we were against Leicester. We have encouraged them to take more of a risk and take shots as Sylvain Legwinski did on Saturday when he hit the bar. The Frenchman had a great dig.

“If we have plenty of crosses and shots then that means we are playing well and goals will follow.”
