Preview: Huddersfield Town vs. Ipswich Town

Sports Mole previews the Championship match between Huddersfield and Ipswich on Tuesday night.

Ipswich Town will feel that victory over floundering Huddersfield Town is essential on Tuesday night if they are to stand a chance of reaching the Championship's playoffs.

Mick McCarthy's side have collected just one point from their last two games to fall five points adrift of the top six and now they travel to the John Smith's Stadium to face a Terriers side without a win in seven.

McCarthy could go with the same XI that were beaten 2-0 by Blackburn Rovers on Saturday, with Stephen Hunt and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake the most likely to break into the lineup.

Huddersfield's recent run of form has seen them fall down to 17th in the table.

They are now just 10 points clear of the drop zone and will want to return to winning ways soon to ensure that last year's final-day relegation scrap isn't a recurrence.

Like McCarthy, Mark Robins has no new injury concerns and might start the same side that were defeated in injury time by Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.

The reverse fixture exactly four months ago was decided in the 89th minute when Daryl Murphy struck to win it for Ipswich.
