Saints v Ipswich Town
St Mary's Stadium
Tues 6th March 2012
Saints play host to quickly climbing Ipswich tomorrow night hoping to add to their winning run. Unbeaten in seven games and winners of their last three with two being away their is a mood of increasing optimism in the camp.
Ipswich are also on a good run as they have won five of their last six games. Michael Chopra will be a serious threat as he has scored six goals in the last six games for the Tractor Boys.
This is a game that could have plenty of goals in it with both strike forces in top form.
