NIGEL Clough doesn’t believe Ipswich’s poor current form will make it any easier for the Brewers when the teams meet at the Pirelli Stadium on Saturday.
The visitors are currently 11th in the Championship, having dipped in form after a promising start. They have lost their last three games and four out of the last five but the Albion manager expects them to get back to winning ways soon.
Clough said: “Ipswich are probably now where they should be. You get these good runs in the Championship and everyone’s expectations go through the roof and then it levels off and people say they then aren’t very good. Through the course of a season most teams will go on these runs. Without doing too much differently you could go five unbeaten or not win for five. “
The Brewers boss expects Ipswich to be organised and up for the challenge.
He said: “They are very competitive – big and strong with players on the day who can hurt you and who are very experienced Championship players.”
