Ipswich gained the first point after four rounds in alst match and remain last on table with only two wins and another draw since the end of november.
Team news are not in their favour, with a sickness bug that wounded the team and among the players affected there are key midf. Skuse ( 24) and Downes (midf. 16+6) that are in doubt as key def. Chambers ( 30), second scorer Edwards ( midf. 17+6 4g) and Collins ( def. 3). Centre of field could be short in numbers with midf. HUyws out sicne before start of season and Folami and Ward ( midf. 11+4) out, too as topscorer Sears ( 9g) and striker Lenkester ( 6+5 1g).
Edwards ( def. 11+5) doubtful could be the only change respect the scoreless draw with Wigan in last match, with no other problems for Stoke.
Also for guests, the point obtained in alst round was the first after three consecutive defeats and since Boxing Day they gained only a win and another draw.
Stoke has only two away wins, but also Ipswich won only two times on their home field and with bad team news for them added to their usual weakness geusts can add other three points with an already good advantage of ten points on relegation zone
