History

The two clubs have only ever met on five occasions at Selhurst Park with the home side winning all five.

When the two sides met last season Rovers will have felt hard done by to come away with nothing.
Paul Heffernan fired Rovers ahead before Shefki Kuqi equalised from the spot after Matt Mills was harshly adjudged to have fouled Kuqi.

This also resulted in Mills being sent off and Rovers reduced to ten men for almost seventy minutes.

Rovers almost held out for a draw when Alan Lee scored the winner for the home side in the last minute.

Need to take something from this game, its getting tight at the bottom.

Ipswich have started winning at the bottom, a point would be a good result with two home games coming up.

Are you starting to get worried yet? Could lose Sharp in January!
