Ipswich Town head to table-topping Southampton ‘full of confidence’, says Paul Jewell

IPSWICH Town boss Paul Jewell has no injury worries ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Championship leaders Southampton.

Only midfielder Jimmy Bullard, who is suspended from the club for a fortnight, will be unavailable for what is the first time the Blues boss has taken a team to St Mary’s.

The Saints beat Town 5-2 at Portman Road last August, with Jewell admitting that Nigel Adkins’s men – who have lost just two games at home in the league and kept four clean sheets in the last five – will prove stiff opposition.

“We’re just taking each and every game on its merits,” said Jewell. “We know Southampton will be very difficult, they’re probably the best team we’ve come across so far this season.

“But we can go there with confidence, knowing that we’re on a good run ourselves.”
