Portman Road

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.

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.
