Derby County prepare to entertain Ipswich Town at Pride Park on Saturday afternoon, and hold the advantage on previous meetings between the two. Rams have the slight edge, having won 12 of the 26 games compared to Ipswich Town's 7 wins.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Pride Park was less than a year ago, in May 2003, as the visitors ran out cosy 1-4 winners in a League Division One match.

Recent respective form guides
Derby County's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Rams have scored 7, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.
Ipswich Town's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occassions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The Tractor Boys's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 11 goals for and 10 against.
Derby County are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 14 points from 17 matches. Ipswich Town lie just outside the playoff positions in the Nationwide League Division One, picking up 27 from their 17 games so far.
