More concerning is the lack of goals, having not found the net in their last three games and only scoring once from open play all season in the league.
Furthermore, it’s safe to say we struggle against Ipswich. Bolton haven't beaten today’s opponents in eight attempts going back to 2002, and only have 3 victories in the last 16 clashes between the two sides back to 1999.
Phil Parkinson has opted to go for a more defensive looking 4-5-1 formation today, with Gary Madine leading the line and support, hopefully, coming from wide areas in Filipe Morais and Craig Noone, who come in for Adam Armstrong and Will Buckley.
The hosts also seem to be lining up with five at the back but have two strikers in former Preston man Joe Garner and David McGoldrick, who I remember scoring against us the one time I was foolish enough to make the trek across to Ipswich.
