How would you plot to beat Ipswich today?

Oscar Garcia faces a big decision at the back today.

For the first time since the 51st minute of the draw with Reading three games ago, Albion’s head coach has all three of his central defenders at his disposal.

So does he reunite Gordon Greer with Matt Upson, who has recovered from illness?

Or does Lewis Dunk stay in the side for a third successive start?

We polled readers this week to see which pairing they would prefer and, of more than 500 votes, 65% were cast in favour of Dunk with Upson.

Greer and Upson attracted 30% of the votes.

But what about elsewhere in the team? Does Keith Andrews return having been ineligible to face Bolton last week?

Is there a case for David Lopez’s creativity to be used to break down what will be a tough Ipswich side?

What would you do if you were in the hot seat at the Amex today?

Put out a strong team from the start ,hold no one back ,for the last 15 minutes when it may be too late to change the game . Their own fans are open about their frailties ,Oscar will know these and hopefully exploit them to the full ,so yes PurpleAlien ,i would start with Kaz ,and Will with JL and big Leo up front ,RI in the middle for strength and Spanish for a bit of flair !

To baldly go says...

TK, Bruno, Upson, Dunk/Greer, Ward, Ince, Stevens, Jfc, Buckley, Lingard, Ulloa. Subs, Brez, Caldi, Dunk/Greer, Andrews, March, LuaLua, Lopez.
Go for it from the start, our luck in front of goal has turned and I think today will be our biggest win of the season so far 4-0 Albion. Mick McCarthy will park the bus and try to hit us on the break, Bruno and Ward need to be on it today coming forwards and I would prefer Dunk to Greer for pace at the back, LuaLua to break his duck in the second half (can't believe he hasn't scored this season!)

Clean Sheet says...

Upson and Greer to start. I expect Buckley will also start with KLL on the bench. Hoping for a clean sheet and 3 points please.
