Town v Rams Preview

Due to computer problems only a shortened match preview - Sorry

The Rams head to Portman Road today with victory defiantly on their minds. With the Black Cats rolling along the Rams dip in form has been off-set with Birmingham going off the rails, and a victory would give the club a great chance to gain automatic-promotion.

The loss of Darren Moore is a huge blow for Billy Davies side, but they welcome back Dean Leacock from illness and Stephen Pearson should also return.

Vital Quotes:

Ipswich Town Team News:

Lewis Price, who is recovering from an ankle injury, and David Wright, who is suffering from a virus, are both doubts but will face late fitness tests. Billy Clarke (groin) will not feature and Naylor and Legwinski are still long term absentees.

Player to watch: Alan Lee

Derby County Team News:

Dean Leacock should be recalled for the Rams after suffering from illness. Darren Moore will not feature after receiving a four match ban for violent conduct. Marc Edworthy will recover from a nose injury to play and Stephen Pearson will also play after injuring his foot.

Player to watch: Giles Barnes
