RAMS boss George Burley is determined to end his losing streak after seeing his side fail to win in his four games against former club Ipswich Town, writes Derek Davis.

As caretaker manager at the end of the 2002-2003 season Burley saw his side stuffed 4-1 at home.

Last season, County managed a draw at Pride Park but were beaten in the League and FA Cup at Portman Road.

Burley last night said: "We have lost three and drawn one but I felt we have improved as a team since then and that will show on Saturday."

After doing well to avoid relegation last season, Derby have not started this campaign too well with defeats at Leeds United and at home to Leicester City on Wednesday.

But Burley insisted: "We should have beaten Leicester and deserved at least a draw against Leeds. We will take the positives that we gleaned from those games with us against Ipswich."
