Player to watch – Conor Chaplin

Conor Chaplin has been a key provider of goals and assists for Ipswich this season, though his output had dropped off a little of late. However, his strike against Swansea at the weekend could allow him to rediscover his best form.

Chaplin has the ability to make an impact

Chaplin has chipped in with 16 goal contributions (10G, 6A) from his position as second striker for Ipswich and the 27-year-old’s ability to turn the tide in his team’s favour could make him a potentially profitable shout in the score/assist market again.
