Ipswich welcome long-term league leaders Bedford to Tuddenham Road tomorrow (12 noon), with both sides well aware the winner will go top of the table.

Ipswich are in a great vein of form, having recorded a fifth straight win on Saturday, as they dispatched Norwich Dragons 3-0.

Bedford have drawn their last three games and have seen their lead reduced to one point, but do have two games in hand over Ipswich.

Ipswich are missing India Goodman from the squad due to other commitments but bring in Rosie Jackson and Megan Dawson.

“Our last match against them (Bedford) saw us turn in one of our worst performances of the season, so we are determined to put that right on Saturday,” said co-captain Emma Millar.

“We are not focused on the result, that will take care of itself, our job is to just keep playing the way we have.”
