The current top-two teams in the Premier League table go head to head tonight at Foxhall Stadium, as Edinburgh Monarchs make the long trek south in search of a record-breaking 14th consecutive victory.

The Scottish side have not lost a competitive meeting in 2014, which – as we head into June – is a remarkable record.

The Witches on the other hand have enjoyed a good week themselves, picking up an away victory at Redcar and a point after a narrow defeat at Newcastle.

It should mean a cracking meeting is in prospect.

“This meeting could possibly define our season,” Witches boss Chris Louis said.

“We need to take three points. That would do us a power of good and to be the first team to knock Edinburgh off their perch would also be fantastic.

“But it’s going to be tough, we know that. All I do know is that on our day, we are capable of beating anyone.”

Both Ipswich and Edinburgh are at full strength and there are match winners scattered throughout both teams.

While Edinburgh steamroller on with victory after victory, the Witches have got their season back on track too.

“If you had told me we would have got eight points in the last week, I would have taken them,” Louis added.

After tonight, the Witches travel to Rye House on Saturday night for another Premier League fixture.

Witches: Richie Worrall, Gino Manzares, Morten Risager, Cameron Heeps, Rohan Tungate, Adam Ellis, Ritchie Hawkins
