THE last game of the Slazenger EHL 2006-2007 season sees Ipswich travel south to Slough tomorrow to face the league runners-up.
With nothing left to fight for in the league, apart from pride, and with both sides in the cup semi-finals, to be played next weekend, this match will form an important part of those preparations.
The last time these sides met Slough won 4-3, and the home side will feel they are favourites to claim the points again tomorrow. Ipswich though will be keen to finish their season on a high and will be giving their all to ensure a first win in Berkshire since 2000, when they won 5-1.
The form book however points to a draw, with four out of the last seven games between the sides ending with the scores level.

Despite the setbacks, the team has always stayed focused and positive. Recent results have not gone their way but they have played some excellent hockey and if they can take their chances in front of goal, tomorrow could see them end the season with a good three points.
The match starts at noon.
Ipswich men play bottom side St Albans away in the Slazenger National League South Division on Sunday, start 2pm, and need at least a point to avoid the relegation play-offs.
