Ipswich Town are back in action after the international break, taking on Birmingham City at St Andrew’s (3pm).

The game is the first since new broke of manager Mick McCarthy’s pending departure, with the boss due to depart Portman Road after five-and-a-half years in charge.

The visit to Birmingham harks back to McCarthy’s first match in charge of Ipswich, which came at St Andrews back in November 2012.

McCarthy’s Ipswich were successful that day, winning 1-0 thanks to an early DJ Campbell goal, which proved to be the start of McCarthy’s side’s move out of relegation trouble.

This time around it is Garry Monks Birmingham who find themselves in trouble, sitting inside the relegation zone heading into the contest.
