Derby County face a trip to Ipswich Town at Portman Road on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Rams will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 20 and win only 8 of the 35 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in October 2009, the Tractor Boys carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a Championship match.
