History of the Ipswich Town v Coventry City fixture

Ipswich Town prepare to entertain Coventry City at Portman Road on Saturday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Tractor Boys are clearly on top, having won 19 and lost only 5 of the 33 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Portman Road was just last season, in August 2003, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a League Division One match.
