Ipswich vs. Swansea

Portman Road



Ipswich vs Swansea

After their heroics away at Sheffield United a few weeks ago, Swansea City will be hoping to perform a replay of that day as they face Championship side Ipswich in the 4th Round of the FA Cup this weekend.

The Tractor Boys unconvincingly beat League 2 side Chester City in the last round, taking them back to Portman Road for the replay.

Vital Quotes:

Kenny Jackett: 'It's a big hurdle to overcome, but there's no reason why we can't go to Ipswich and give a good account of ourselves.

'Ipswich are a good footballing side with good players, but I used to enjoy going to Portman Road as a player and I'm looking forward to going there as a manager.

'We've had a good cup run, in one competition or another, every season I've been here.

'It generates a good profile, financial rewards and enjoyment for the fans, myself and the players.

I'd like to keep the run going.''

Ipswich Team News:

Town boss Jim Magilton will be forced into making a number of changes to his tomorrow because of injuries and suspension.

Alex Bruce and David Wright are both suspended while skipper Jason De Vos is out injured.

Sito and Chris Casement are competing for the right back place.

Player to watch: Alan Lee

The 28 year-old former Cardiff City, Burnley and Aston Villa striker has scored 11 goals in the league this season. Cardiff signed the striker for a stupendous fee of £850,000, he never settled at Ninian park and scored just 10 league goals in his 3-year stay with the Bluebirds.

He then joined Ipswich in January 2006, scoring 4 goals in 14 games that season.

Swansea Team News:

Last round hero Thomas Butler is in a battle to recover from a hip injury to be able to play in tomorrow's match.

If he doesn't make it which is looking more likely, then Robinson is available aganin and he looks favourite to start on the left side of midfield.

Kevin Austin is suspended after picking up his fifth booking of the season and Craney is cup-tied.

Pratley will replace Craney and will play alongside Tate while it looks like Iriekpen will replace Austin.

Player to watch: Leon Britton

Still our most in-form player, Trundle had a poor game against Gillingham on Tuesday but I can't see Jackett dropping him to play new signing Pawel Abbott instead.

Match Facts & Stats

Match Prediction:

Ipswich didn't seem too convincing in the last round against Chester so I think we have a good chance of progressing to the 5th round. I'd be happy to get a draw and take them back to the Liberty Stadium. Prediction: 1-1
