Sports Mole previews the action from this weekend's Championship showdown between Ipswich Town and Middlesbrough.

Ipswich Town play host to Middlesbrough in the Championship this weekend with just two points separating them in the league table.

The visitors are two points ahead of their opponents ahead of kickoff, and could move as high as sixth with a win.

Both teams drew their last league outings, with Boro being held at home by Sheffield Wednesday and Ipswich drawing 1-1 at Birmingham City.

Recent Boro recruit Jacob Butterfield could make his first start for the club after Hungary international Jozsef Varga picked up an injury playing for his country.

Kei Kamara could also feature in some capacity for the visitors.
