Championship 2009/10: Ipswich Town
Recent record: The two teams have met 14 times in the Championship since 2002 and Ipswich have had much the better of the clashes, a 2-1 win for the Sky Blues at the Ricoh Arena in December 2007 being their only victory.
Former Sky Blues: No-one currently on the books at Portman Road has also played for City.
Summer talking point: Traditionally seen as a conservative club, the arrival of Roy Keane as manager towards the end of last season signals a new era for Ipswich.
The Irishman may be controversial but he is never far away from the headlines and his presence ensures plenty of media coverage.
Coming to Coventry: For a televised clash (the Keane effect!) on the opening weekend of the season.
