MATCH PREVIEW | Ipswich Town v Charlton


Charlton are back on the road this Saturday, taking on promotion-chasing Ipswich Town at Portman Road (KO 3pm BST).

Dean Holden’s men will be looking to continue their recent run of form having lost just one of their last seven outings. The Addicks travel to Suffolk buoyed by a 3-2 win at home to Burton Albion on Easter Monday.

Sean Clare and Miles Leaburn will both be assessed ahead of Saturday's trip to Suffolk, while Matt Penney is ineligible to face his parent club and Jack Payne is suspended.

The Addicks will also be without Lucas Ness (knee), Corey Blackett-Taylor (hamstring) and Chuks Aneke (hamstring).

George Edmundson (ankle), Lee Evans (knee) and Tyreece John-Jules (thigh) are all sidelined for Ipswich.

The hosts will make a late call on Wales international Nathan Broadhead (ankle), who missed Monday's trip to Cheltenham Town.


The Tractor Boys currently sit third in the Sky Bet League One table, two points behind league leaders Sheffield Wednesday having played a game less.

Prior to Monday's 1-1 draw at Cheltenham, Kieran McKenna's side had remarkably won their last eight matches without conceding. Ipswich are currently enjoying a 13-game unbeaten run in the league, with their last defeat coming at the hands of Oxford United in January.


Charlton and Ipswich have locked horns on 57 previous occasions with the Addicks winning 20, the Tractor Boys 24 and the remaining 13 games resulting in draws.

The reverse fixture saw the spoils shared at The Valley back in October in what was an incredible eight-goal thriller - with four goals scored in additional time. The visitors scored two stoppage-time goals to earn a 4-2 lead, only for Terell Thomas and George Dobson to net in the 96th and 99th minute to salvage a point for the Addicks.


Sam Barrott will be the man in the middle on Saturday. The official last refereed a Charlton fixture in August 2021 - a 2-0 win over Crewe Alexandra at The Valley.

Barrott will be assisted by Matthew Smith and Robert Hyde, while Paul Johnson is the Fourth Official.


The Addicks will be wearing their white away kit in Suffolk.
