A look back to when Derby County emerged with a 1-0 victory on their last visit to Portman Road.

In a game televised live on Sky Sports in January this year, the only goal came just before the hour mark, when a long ball over the top caught Tommy Smith napping, allowing former Norwich striker Chris Martin in to beat keeper Bartosz Bialkowski.

John Eustice was sent off for the visitors just before the final whistle, with Ipswich having late chances without being able to force an equaliser.

Ipswich Town: Bialkowski, Chambers, Smith, Berra, Mings; Anderson (Noel Hunt), Hyam, Tabb (Stephen Hunt), Bishop (Bru 72), Murphy, McGoldrick.

Subs: Gerken, Parr, Ambrose, Bajner.
