The Tractor Boys play host to the Baggies and here are our predictions for the game

Ipswich vs West Brom team news

Ipswich

The Tractor Boys had a nightmare start away at Preston North End in their last league game, going two goals down inside the opening eight minutes. Things went from bad to worse before the halftime whistle as Preston scored a third goal. Ipswich brought on their new striker Kieffer Moore for the second half and the Welsh striker scored two goals but the game still ended in defeat for the promotion hopefuls.

Ipswich have no fresh injury concerns or suspended players ahead of Saturday's clash with West Brom.

Predicted Lineup: Hladký (GK), Edmundson, Clarke, Woolfenden, Davis, Morsy, Luongo, Burns, Moore, Chaplin & Sarmiento 

West Brom

The Baggies picked up a narrow 1-0 win at home to struggling Birmingham last weekend but had to wait until five minutes from the end for Andreas Weimann to score the game's only goal. West Brom's return to winning ways has closed the gap between themselves and Ipswich to eleven points but the Baggies are going to have to be at their very best to reduce the points distance even further.

Matt Phillips and Josh Maja are both out of this game with injuries, while Semi Ajayi and Grady Diangana are still away at AFCON 2023.

Predicted Lineup: Palmer (GK), Bartley, Townsend, Furlong, Kipré, Yokuşlu, Wallace, Swift, Mowatt, Fellows & Thomas-Asante

Player to Watch: Kieffer Moore

Ipswich's new signing Kieffer Moore made his debut at Preston, coming off the bench to score twice in a 3-2 defeat for the Tractor Boys.

With those two goals in mind, we're expecting Moore to start against West Brom this weekend and would not be surprised if the Welsh international scored the winning goal for the hosts.

Moore never really adapted to life in the Premier League with Bournemouth but thrived in the Championship with Cardiff and has now returned to Ipswich where he made eleven substitute appearances back in 2016/17 and failed to score a single goal.
