Swansea City face a trip to Ipswich Town at Portman Road on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Swans will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 8 and win only 3 of the 13 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in October 2008, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a Championship match.
