Sports Mole previews Saturday's meeting between Championship strugglers Ipswich and Barnsley at Portman Road.

Two of the Championship's struggling sides meet at Portman Road on Saturday when Ipswich Town take on Barnsley.

The hosts, who are currently in 19th place in the table, will be looking to build on last weekend's credible goalless draw at leaders Cardiff City.

Meanwhile, David Flitcroft takes charge of 23rd-placed Barnsley for the first time since he was appointed permanent manager last weekend, knowing that a second consecutive win could move the side to within a point of safety.

However, there have been doubts as to whether the match will be going ahead following snow in the area.

Scott Loach is expected to keep his place in goal for Ipswich as Stephen Henderson remains sidelined with an ankle injury, while Barnsley have no new injury concerns.
