Ipswich Town will spend this week preparing for the visit of Championship strugglers, Bolton Wanderers, on Saturday.

After the weekend’s results, which saw Town slip to fourth after a 2-1 defeat at QPR, Bolton sat at the foot of the table, courtesy of a 3-0 home defeat to Middlesbrough.

One of a few positives to come out of Ipswich’s game at Loftus Road, was the late cameo from Bersant Celina, and surely now, is the time for him to start a game for the Blues.

Celina, fellow summer signing Tom Adeyemi and Town’s inability to sign a centre-back before the transfer window closed, are just three of the issues discussed in this week’s podcast, presented by Chris Brammer who, as always, is joined by Archant Chief Football Writer, Stuart Watson.

In this week’s nostalgia, we take a look at when two goals from Chris Kiwomya earned Ipswich Town a replay with Aston Villa in the fourth round of the League Cup, in December 1992.

Following the news David McGoldrick faces a month out with a groin injury, sports writer Andy Warren looks at the arguements four and against Mick McCarthy’s potential replacement options.
