History of the Ipswich Town v Plymouth Argyle fixture

Ipswich Town prepare to entertain Plymouth Argyle at Portman Road on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Tractor Boys are clearly on top, winning 14 and drawing 7 of the 22 games played.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Portman Road was just last season, in January 2008, when they played out a goalless draw in a Championship match.
