Ipswich won last weekend 1-0 at Blackpool to extend their unbeaten run to five games.
So far this season on their travels they have won two, drawn three and lost two.
Gareth Roberts is struggling with injury and has not trained all week. James Chambers is most likely to replace him in defence.

Darren Ambrose has returned to Ipswich on loan from Charlton and may go straight into the side.
Jim Magilton is considering dropping David Norris after his misdemeanour at Blackpool last week.
