Sports Mole takes a look at Saturday's Championship encounter between early playoff contenders Ipswich Town and Huddersfield Town at Portman Road.

Huddersfield Town travel to Portman Road on Saturday looking for their fourth successive win in the Championship.

The Yorkshire side have strung together wins over Sheffield Wednesday, Burnley and Bolton Wanderers, but have only ever won twice on the road at Ipswich Town.

Both teams are level on 26 points - five off a spot in the playoffs - and neither manager has anyone injured or suspended.

In their 36 meetings, Ipswich have won 18 to Huddersfield's 11.

Mick McCarthy's men are also in decent form, winning three of their last four league fixtures.
