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.
