Ipswich had seen off the threats of Aston Villa, Liverpool, Leeds, Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham on home soil that season. And with an unbeaten run of 12 matches behind them and a 2-0 win over neighbours Norwich, Ipswich was in the mood. Shearer, on the other hand, took his tally to 22 for the season after a brace against Leeds. He did pick up a knock on his knee but was hoping to be fit for the clash. Ipswich keeper Clive Baker was hoping that his opposite end would be the busier one in the match but he was ready to face the challenge of Alan Shearer if needed.
