Ipswich Town are set to face Championship pace-setters Wolves at a sold-out Molineux this weekend.
The Blues head to the Black Country for their final game before Christmas, where they will be backed by 600 away fans on an afternoon where every ticket inside the 30,000-capacity stadium is likely to be sold.
The game will see management duo Mick McCarthy and Terry Connor return to their former club, with Blues boss McCarthy well aware of the threat the big-spending Championship leaders pose.
“They are flying and I watched them beat Sheffield Wednesday last week,” McCarthy told the Club website.
“They have spent money but they know how to grind out results as well. It will be a big challenge for us but we will be ready.”

The deadline passed for away fans to buy tickets for the game on Sunday night and, with the home sections of the ground already sold out, the remaining away allocation has been returned to Wolves for home fans to buy.
Wolves lead the Championship by four points and are 16 clear of Ipswich heading into the game with McCarthy’s Blues, which will mark the half-way point of the season.
