Ipswich Town play host to Doncaster Rovers at Portman Road on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. The Tractor Boys have drawn both of the previous games against their opponents, however.
The last time the two teams met at Ipswich Town was way back in the black-and-white days of December 1957, with Ipswich Town running out comfortable 2-0 winners in a Second Division match.

FootyMad's prediction ...
Its not been a very profitable last few weeks for Ipswich Town, and I'm afraid the Footymad team cannot see it getting too much better here. Look no further than honours being even at the end of this one. No-score draw
