Crystal Palace face a trip to Ipswich Town at Portman Road on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Eagles will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 18 and win only 8 of the 34 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in December 2005, as the visitors ran out cosy 0 - 2 winners in a Championship match.
