History of the Bristol City v Ipswich Town fixture
Ipswich Town face a trip to Bristol City at Ashton Gate on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Tractor Boys will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Ashton Gate was just last season, in August 2011, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-3 winners in a Championship match.
