Ipswich Town play at Aston Villa, in a league game, for the first time since 2001 this afternoon (3pm).
Follow our live feed below for pre- and post-match analysis, team news, reaction and live Tweets from our chief football writer Stuart Watson at Portman Road.
The two teams are level on points in the Championship table and both struggling for form in 2017. Steve Bruce’s hosts are winless in seven, but remain unbeaten at home this season. Mick McCarthy’s visitors’ inconsistent campaign saw them follow up a dire 3-0 home defeat to Derby with an encouraging performance in last weekend’s 2-2 home draw with Reading.
Whatever the result there will be full reaction to the game in Monday’s East Anglian Daily Times and Ipswich Star newspapers.
