Ipswich have now gone 10 games without a win. Can Paul Jewell's men triumph over Derby at Portman Road? Sports Mole gives its thoughts.

Lowly Ipswich Town welcome Derby County to Portman Road on Tuesday looking to end a run of 10 games without a win.

Paul Jewell's side are rooted in the bottom three following Saturday's last-gasp loss at Hull City.

It is possible that Jewell will no longer be Blues manager come Tuesday after the Liverpudlian admitted that he was considering his future at the club.

The Tractor Boys have no fresh injury concerns ahead of Tuesday's match and are likely to continue to include a number of loanees in their starting lineup.

Jewell, if still at the helm, may consider returning to Michael Chopra up top as loan signing DJ Campbell has failed to score in his first two appearances.

Mid-table Derby go to Suffolk on the back of three impressive draws against the playoff-chasing names of Middlesbrough, Brighton and Blackburn.

Nigel Clough named an unchanged starting XI for the late draw against Blackburn on Saturday and the same XI could start again.
