Steve Bruce's side are in erratic form, with three defeats and three wins in their last six, and are just three points clear of Watford in third ahead of kickoff.
Ipswich are in more consistent form, managing to pull away from the drop zone in recent weeks, but a loss could see them back in danger.
Mick McCarthy's team go into the match in 15th place with a six-point cushion between them and the relegation places.
McCarthy is likely to name an unchanged side following last weekend's impressive 1-0 victory away to Derby County.

Ipswich: Loach; Cresswell, Chambers, Stearman, Smith; N'daw, Emmanuel-Thomas, Martin, Hyam; Chopra, McGoldrick
