Ipswich Town return to the scene of their joint-biggest ever away win when they travel to Doncaster Rovers on Boxing Day.

The Blues returned from South Yorkshire as handsome 6-0 winners in in February 2011, thanks in no small part to teenage striker Connor Wickham.

The young hotshot, who went on to be sold to Sunderland the following summer, plundered a hat-trick, adding to a Sam Hird own goal and strikes from Colin Healy and Gareth McAuley.

Only Carlos Edwards (started the game) and Tommy Smith, who was an unused sub, remain from the squad that featured at the Keepmoat that night.
