Ipswich Town have had some tough times against Leeds United, says Luke Chambers

Elland Road

Ipswich Town have won just two of their last seven fixtures against Leeds United.

Ipswich Town defender Luke Chambers has revealed to the Sudbury Mercury that he still remembers the tough games that his side have had against Leeds United. 

The Tractor Boys have won just two of their last seven matches against Leeds, and it is a record that they will be keen to improve on in midweek.

Doing so could be difficult, though. Leeds are unbeaten in the league so far this season, and Ipswich have lost their last two matches, but Chambers insists that his team are looking forward to the prospect of taking on the Yorkshire outfit. 

“We’ve had some tough times at Leeds but every game is tough," Chambers told the Sudbury Mercury. "We were confident going into Friday night and we were looking to bounce back, but that’s two defeats in a row now and we need to stop that run.

“We’re looking forward to Leeds now and we want to get a smile back on our faces.”

Ipswich's most recent fixture saw them lost in humiliating circumstances to Reading, with the Royals winning 5-1.

It was an uncharacteristic showing from Mick McCarthy's side, who have built their success on being solid defensively, and made it to the play-offs last season. 

Despite that defeat, Ipswich are still stationed in eighth place and have made a decent start to the campaign. 

A win at Leeds is likely to put them back in the top-six and it will ensure that their loss to Reading is quickly forgotten, but it will be a test of their character. 

With history and current form against them, Leeds may not be the opponents they were hoping to face and Chambers will need to put old memories behind him if he is to help his side get the better of the Whites on Tuesday.
