This is the first meeting in five-years between Ipswich and Wolves and that finished 1-0 in the favour of Wolves. Matt Doherty scored in a 1-0 win which helped put Wolves on their way to the 2017/18 Championship title, and he could feature against them again.
Wolves have a good record against Ipswich and you have to go back to November 4, 2014, for the last time that Wolves tasted defeat to them. Mick McCarthy, a popular figure at Wolves masterminded a 2-1 win over Kenny Jackett that day with Daryl Murphy scoring a brace after Karl Henry had equalised.
BirminghamWorld reporter Charlie Haffenden believes Wolves could make up to eight changes against Ipswich Town tonight.
Wolves don't have many injury worries to contend with but under-21's midfielder Joe Hodge is recovering from a hamstring injury and is unlikely to feature. Jean Ricner-Bellegarde is to serve a one-gme suspension after being red carded against Luton Town meanwhile, but at least that means he will only miss two Premier League matches.
As for the opposition, Kayden Jackson has a knee injury, and has not featured in their last two games. Leif Davis could be in contention however after featuring at the weekend amid fears of a long-term injury.
Former Wolves midfielder Lee Evans could feature against his former club, and holds fond memories during his five years in the Midlands.
“I’ve got fond memories of my time there,” said Evans to the East Anglian Daily Times.
“They bought me from Newport, when they were in non-league, started me in their 23s and I graduated into the first team under Kenny Jackett. Wolves kickstarted my career so I will always have them to thank for that.”
