AFTER threatening to storm Sky Bet League One with some scintillating early-season form, Ipswich Town have found life tougher in recent months.

Paul Lambert's side have won just four of their last 21 matches in all competitions, but they remain only a point outside the play-offs.

Last weekend's 4-1 win over Burton Albion showed the Tractor Boys can be lethal when they turn it on and Oxford United will look to keep these players quiet.


The forward's double against Burton made him Ipswich's joint top scorer this season, his 11 goals putting him alongside strike partner James Norwood.

The pacy 26-year-old is effective when running in behind the opposition defence, putting him in a position to score and create chances.


United fans know all about the 26-year-old, who made 36 appearances on loan at the Kassam Stadium last season.

Garbutt has recently been deployed on the left of midfield in a 3-4-1-2, where Ipswich can utilise his excellent delivery.


The academy graduate first broke into the side last season, but this is arguably his breakthrough campaign.

Downes is already showing impressive maturity on the ball despite only turning 21 last month, but he needs just one more yellow card to trigger a two-match ban.
