TEAM NEWS: Ipswich Town unchanged for fifth successive game
Bournemouth v Ipswich: Blues boss Mick McCarthy has named an unchanged starting XI for the fifth successive game, for this afternoon’s Championship match at AFC Bournemouth.
Town – on a six-game unbeaten run (seven away) – could break into the top six for the first time this season if they were to follow-up the 3-0 win at Doncaster on Boxing Day with another victory today.
Bournemouth are in good form themselves though with three wins from four. Cherries boss Eddie Howe has made one enforced change to his starting XI following Wednesday’s 3-0 home win over Yeovil, Josh McQuoid replacing the suspended Harry Arter in midfield.
