Things have gone in almost opposite directions for these two sides since they last met in League One in January 2022. Wimbledon now find themselves down in the fourth tier, while Ipswich are chasing automatic promotion to the Premier League.

The Dons could soon be heading back up the Football League, though, with Johnnie Jackson's side currently occupying the final play-off spot in League Two. Their recent form has been fairly promising, winning three of their last five games in all competitions, but top flight-chasing Ipswich will present a serious test.

After winning 16 of their first 21 Championship games of the season, Ipswich have hit slightly rocky ground recently. They've failed to win their last five league games, including a 4-0 thrashing away to Leeds just before Christmas, but highly-rated head coach Kieran McKenna will see this game as a great opportunity to get back to winning ways.  

Here's how the two teams line up:

Wimbledon: Bass (GK), Biler, Reeves, Johnson, Pell, Davison, Little, Pearce, Lemonheigh-Evans, Currie, Sasu.

Ipswich: Walton (GK), Tuanzebe, Woolfenden, Edmundson, Humphreys, Morsy, Taylor, Hutchinson, Harness, Broadhead, Ladapo. 

Ipswich won that 2022 meeting 2-0 on their way to promotion. Can Wimbledon take revenge at Plough Lane? Tune in to find out as we explain all the ways to get a Wimbledon vs Ipswich Town live stream where you are.  

How to watch the Wimbledon vs Ipswich Town live stream wherever you are

The Wimbledon vs Ipswich Town live stream will be shown on many different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual service?

The answer is to use a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN will let you tune into your home coverage from wherever you are — meaning that if you're abroad, you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live as if you were in your lounge.

Our favorite right now is ExpressVPN, thanks to its combination of superb speed, great customer service and excellent device support. It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could check it out without having to sign up long-term.


Speed, security and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. In our testing, we were impressed by its fast connection times and by its ability to access more than 3,000 services in 160 locations across 94 countries. A 30-day money-back guarantee is another bonus.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance, if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you'd select U.S. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to ESPN Plus or another service and watch the game.
