Tom Lawrence is quietly making a name for himself in the Championship with Ipswich Town.

After joining on a season long loan from Premier League champions Leicester City, 22-year-old Lawrence has been in sensational form for the Tractor Boys.

The Welshman scored a fantastic solo goal against Sheffield Wednesday at the start of November, before his wonder strike against QPR, whilst also topping the assist chart for the Tractor boys.

Predominately right footed, his delivery is exceptional from open play and set pieces.

Quick, strong and with a wonderful technique, Lawrence has the tools to be a very effective attacking midfielder or winger, whilst his accuracy from distance means he could also be a threat inside off the front as a number 10.

I saw play on the left against QPR where he was such a threat they had to double up on him.

As teams work him out, he will have to mix his game up when faced with two defenders.

Either check out and find the spare player, or use a trick to deliver with his left foot when he is unable to cut inside onto his favoured right foot.
