Tractor Boys full steam ahead
Ipswich manager Paul Jewell boasts a full-strength squad for the trip to Derby.
Town, like almost all of the second tier, have enjoyed a rare midweek without a fixture following a demanding March in which they lost just one of their nine games. Jewell gave his players Monday off before returning to training for the rest of the week and has seen his side benefit, although he remains keen to rotate his ranks over the Easter programme to keep them fresh. Ipswich host Leicester just 48 hours after their trip to Derby and that means Lee Bowyer, Jason Scotland, Ryan Stevenson and Ibrahima Sonko - all on the bench for last weekend's 1-0 win over Barnsley - are likely to get match action at some point. The likes of Luke Hyam, Josh Carson and Jimmy Bullard are also set to come into the reckoning as Jewell looks to utilise his squad. Just one place and one point separates Ipswich and Derby in the middle of the Championship table.
