ALL ROADS lead to Molineux on Saturday for what will be Ipswich Town's biggest match of the season so far.

Wolverhampton Wanderers' 1-0 defeat at home to Black Country rivals West Brom last night means Town are two points ahead of Wolves, who still have a game in hand, in the race for sixth spot in the Coca-Cola Championship.

A win for Ipswich on Saturday would not only enhance Town's chances of overhauling Crystal Palace but effectively end Wolves' hopes of finishing in the final play-off spot.

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy said after last night's match: “It could have been four-all instead of 1-0.

“But no-one will want to hear whether we played good, bad or indifferent because we lost.

“I can't do anything about that now but we can do something on Saturday.
