Crystal Palace face a trip to Ipswich Town at Portman Road at tea-time on Saturday, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Eagles will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in August 2007, the Tractor Boys carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a Championship match.
