Ipswich Town travel to take on Swansea City at Liberty Stadium on Saturday afternoon, having the edge over their hosts in previous meetings. The visitors have won 1 of the 11 previous games, with the hosts winning just 5.
The last time the two teams met at Swansea City was amazingly over twenty years ago, in April 1983, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a First Division match.
