Ipswich Town are once again in search for their first win of the season, this time against a visiting Bolton Wanderers side who come into the game off the back of a midweek loss to Middlesbrough.
After a tough week for fans, with the tragic passing of former Town player Kevin Beattie, Ipswich made sure Brentford didn’t walk away with the victory as Kayden Jackson scored his first goal for the club in what could possibly have been their best performance so far under Paul Hurst.
After a formation and tactical change at half time, Ipswich turned up the pressure on Brentford and deservedly picked up a point, meaning Brentford drop out of the automatic promotion places and occupy the leading spot in the play-offs.
Although it’s very early on in the season, Brentford look as if they’ll be in contention for a spot in the Premier League next season. Town’s next opponent, Bolton? Not so much, Although escaping the clutches of administration they look set for a mid table finish at best, but looking at their current form, it may be another year of relegation struggles.
Toto Nsiala has completed his 3-match suspension and will be available for Hurst at the weekend, but the boss has confirmed that Jon Walters may not be fit for the game with an achilles injury. He missed the game with Brentford for the same reason.
