Ipswich Town are a quarter of a way through their League One campaign, and sit atop the table, still unbeaten – but who’s been the star player for the Blues so far?

Town, of course, have won eight and drawn three of their league clashes so far, and have another weekend off to look forward to now due to international call-ups.

So now seems a good time to reflect on their fine start and pick out their stand-out star thus far.

And there are many contenders - when we posed the question on Twitter, electrifying right-back Kane Vincent-Young and rock solid veteran Cole Skuse were the picks of many fans.

But the likes of James Norwood, Kayden Jackson, Luke Garbutt, Flynn Downes, Tomas Holy, Luke Woolfenden and Luke Chambers could also stake a claim to that title.

Jackson leads the team in scoring with six strikes so far, one ahead of summer signing Norwood, while Downes has been superb in midfield and Town's defence has been watertight, conceding just five goals in the league campaign to date.

Garbutt, meanwhile, has chipped in with three goals, including a goal of the season contender free-kick thunderbolt in the 4-1 win over Tranmere.

The Blues return to action when they make the long trip to Accrington a week on Sunday, in a game which kicks off at midday and will be shown live on Sky.
