Watford face a trip to Ipswich Town at Portman Road on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Hornets will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 15 and win only 3 of the 25 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in March 2004, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4 - 1 thriller, in a League Division One match.
