Key Players:

Jason Scotland: Started his league career ironically in Scotland for Dundee United in 2003 before moving to St. Johnstone where he scored an impressive 33 goals in 66 appearances. In 2007 Scotland signed for Swansea and fired the club to promotion scoring 24 league goals. The following season in the Championship Scotland spearheaded the attack with an impressive return of 21 league goals. When Roberto Martinez opted to join Wigan as manager he raided his old club for star striker Scotland who subsequently joined for £2 million. He made 32 appearances scoring only 1 premier league goal. He joined Ipswich in the summer on a two year deal and has already got off the mark scoring on his league debut against Bristol City in a 2-0 victory.

Grant Leadbitter: A box to box midfielder with Premier League experience, Grant Leadbitter started his career at Sunderland and was a product of the club`s youth academy. He made his league debut in 2005 and went on to appear 123 times for the club. Leadbitter was a regular under Roy Keane before moving to Ipswich to once again team up with the Irishman. Last season Leadbitter made 40 appearances in all competitions scoring 3 goals.
