When and where
Town will play their first game since December 15 - a 2-1 win against Burton Albion - tomorrow with a match against the Robins at Portman Road.
The game kicks off at 5.30pm, and will be held behind closed doors due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

The match will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.
Season ticket holders who don't have Sky will be able to watch via iFollow, but the game will not be available to buy on iFollow for non-season holders due to broadcast regulations.

Non-season ticket holders can still watch the game by buying a NowTV day pass for £9.99, which provides access to Sky Sports channels for 24 hours.
Referee and match officials
The game will be refereed by Sebastian Stockbridge. He's overseen 15 games across Leagues One and Two, the EFL Trophy and the EFL Cup this season, handing out 51 yellow and two red cards.
His assistants will be Stuart Butler and Michael Chard, with Christopher Sarginson serving as the fourth official.
Despite not having played for so long, Town enter this match seventh in League One, level on points with the two sides above them, Charlton and Peterborough.
Swindon, however, are in serious trouble. They're second from bottom of the table, despite having played two games more than Town, with just 17 points from 20 matches.
Before their enforced break, Town were struggling, having won two, drawn one and lost three of their last six games.
That's still much better form than the Robins though, who only have a solitary point - a creditable 2-2 draw with Charlton - to show from their last half-dozen matches.
Ipswich are the overwhelming favourites to win the match, at 19/20 with many bookies, according to Oddschecker.
You can get 14/5 on the draw, or 33/10 on a Swindon upset.
