I reckon 7points out of a possible 12

15 Dec 19:45 Burton Albion H 3pts
19 Dec 15:00 Peterborough United A 0pts
26 Dec 15:00 Northampton Town H 3pts
29 Dec 19:45 AFC Wimbledon A 1pts

5 points

15 Dec 19:45 Burton Albion H 1pts
19 Dec 15:00 Peterborough United A 0pts
26 Dec 15:00 Northampton Town H 3pts
29 Dec 19:45 AFC Wimbledon A 1pts

Tomorrow won't be easy.
Burton have scored 8 goals in their last 5 games, scoring at least one in each game.
We have scored 2 goals in our last 5, both in the same game against 10 men.
Many of the 2,000 will be expecting an easy victory. If we don't score in the first half hour or go a goal behind, it could get unpleasant.

In all the years being a fan of ITFC, can't ever remember an Ipswich v Northampton game.

Burton 1 pt
Posh 1 pt
North 3 pts
Dons 1 pt

Being generous with 50% success rate here.

I remember playing them at PR ( under the lights I think) in an FA Cup game . I think we won ...... so I was a looooooong time ago lol !

Edit: looks like it was the League Cup in 1987-88

9 points for me. I'm expecting defeat to Peterboro but the rest victories. Following our habit of beating the lower teams and losing to the higher ones.

I think these fixtures are their short-term strategy.... win all the ‘easy’ games and keep in touch with the front-runners by the New Year. Then it’s just a case of getting players back ... and then we’ll storm the league. Piece of p*ss.

The way we’re playing, though, there are no easy games. I can see us getting five out of twelve points. It all depends how good or bad Burton, Wimbledon and Northampton are? I don’t think we’re good enough to beat all those three. Seven points from those 4 games would be a good haul in the circumstances.
