Sports Mole looks ahead to the Championship clash between Ipswich Town and Blackpool.

Ipswich Town and Blackpool will both be looking to distance themselves from the relegation zone with a win in their Championship clash on Saturday.

Ipswich will be hoping for a reaction to the disappointing 1-0 defeat to Blackburn Rovers.

The Tractor Boys have just one win in the last six league outings and Mick McCarthy will be expecting better of his side ahead of this weekend's game.

Blackpool, however, are looking to find some consistency after a late goal from Nathan Delfouneso secured all three points in a 2-1 win over Millwall.

The away side could also have a new manager in charge, with Paul Ince reportedly in talks at Bloomfield Road.
