With video - Why Albion face a set-piece threat today
Ipswich’s centre-backs will pose a threat at set-pieces today.
Just as they did when they won their last away fixture.
The Tractor Boys need a win to keep alive realistic play-off hopes after last week’s 3-1 home defeat by Wigan.
And Tommy Smith and Christophe Berra will be looking to add to their four goals apiece against statistically the tightest defence in the Championship.
Town have 15 set-piece goals in league action, a figure topped in the division only by Reading with 17.
They were slightly fortunate to win 1-0 at Huish Park 11 days ago but the only goal highlighted one of their strengths.
Smith headed on a corner at the near post and Berra moved in at the far to knock it over the line.
With 14-goal David McGoldrick sidelined for the rest of the season with a knee injury, their top-scoring active player is Daryl Murphy.
The Irish international has nine goals plus three assists and has been one of their better performers this term.
Mick McCarthy’s side have made steady progress this term through being solid rather than spectacular.
Expect them to go 4-3-1-2 with Jonny Williams, on loan from Crystal Palace, operating just off the front men.
