History of the Ipswich Town v Swansea City fixture

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.

Recent respective form guides

Ipswich Town have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. While Tractor Boys have scored 5, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Swansea City's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. Swans have conceded 5 goals in these games, and only hit 2 in reply.

Ipswich Town find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 11 games have yielded only 5 points. Swansea City see themselves just below half way in the Coca-Cola Championship, showing a record of 14 points from their 11 games played so far,
