Sutton have had fluctuating results so far and are just as likely to score five as to concede five goals.

Coach Sandie Lister knows Sutton's danger lies in former international Jane Sixsmith and the tactics need to contain the passing of the midlands striker and prevent her from getting on the score board.

Ipswich should be confident as their record against the midlands team is very good.

Forwards Tanya Barnard and Sarah Bamfield have proved successful at finding the back of the net so far this season and if they continue to link with the attacking midfield of King, Sandall and Ellis then Ipswich should be able to improve their goal difference.
