Facing West Ham this afternoon is the step up in quality manager Paul Hurst has been craving for his Ipswich Town players during pre-season.
The Blues have lost 2-0 at Braintree before winning 1-0 against Crawley, Barnet and MK Dons this summer, but today’s test against the Premier League Hammers will give Hurst’s men a thorough workout, in what is their final dress rehearsal before the Championship season begins.
Hurst would have liked some tougher encounters during the summer but is now looking forward to seeing what his side is capable of against Manuel Pellegrini’s men.
West Ham have sold their full allocation of more than 4,000 tickets for this afternoon’s game, in which Lukasz Fabianski could make his first appearance in goal following his summer move from Swansea.
New signings Jack Wilshere, Felipe Anderson and Fabian Balbuena could all be involved, along with Hammers captain Mark Noble, who spent three months on loan with the Blues in 2006.
