Speaking on talkSPORT, Simon Jordan cautioned Ipswich Town that failing to “do their job” might cause them to stumble and be eliminated from the running for automatic promotion.

The Tractor Boys have been outstanding for the most part of the season, and their best performance to yet may have occurred at Portman Road against Southampton, where Jeremy Sarmiento’s late victory earlier this month increased their hopes of promotion.

They haven’t won any of their next three games, though, having drawn at home against Watford and Middlesbrough and lost away to their bitterest rivals, Norwich City.

Kieran McKenna’s team would have been hoping to capture six points from six, and the last two home games would have been viewed as a real opportunity.

They only managed to win two of the available points, but their current position atop the Championship table is because to the mistakes made by Leeds United and Leicester City.

The warning from Simon Jordan to Ipswich Town
Despite the fact that the Whites had two home games they should have won last week, Leicester has gained zero points and Leeds has only gained one.

With little separating the top three teams in the league right now, there is still hope for the West Yorkshire squad and the Foxes.

Perhaps for this reason above all, Jordan has warned the Tractor Boys, saying on talkSPORT (via MOT Leeds News): “They haven’t accomplished anything yet in terms of leaving the division, and they need to concentrate on the fact that Leeds and Leicester have games coming up that have the potential to drastically alter the standings if Ipswich doesn’t perform to the best of their abilities.

“Ipswich have created a fantastic chance for themselves. Over the past few weeks, Leeds and Leicester have made every effort to avoid receiving automatic promotions.”

Southampton, who are back in the running for an automatic promotion spot, is another team that Ipswich needs to be cautious of.

Simon Jordan’s warning to Ipswich Town needs to be heeded

Leeds and Leicester still stand a great chance of finishing the season with a respectable number of points, given the caliber of their respective squads.

Even still, the Foxes have a game coming up, and Enzo Maresca’s team intends to make the most of it.

Jordan’s warning must therefore be taken seriously.

The Tractor Boys still have games against Hull City and Coventry City away from home before hosting Huddersfield Town at Portman Road.

Their next two away games are extremely dangerous, but they should be aiming to win against the Terriers. How well they get along will be interesting to watch.
