Bristol City travel to Ipswich tomorrow looking to break a sequence of four games without a win.

Information on tomorrow's opponents can be found below. 

IPSWICH TOWN
The Tractor Boys began the season in fine form with three wins and a draw from their first four matches. They suffered back-to-back defeats to Brighton and Reading before earning a further four points from their next two games. They’re currently fifth in the Championship and boast three former City players in their ranks (Dean Gerken, Cole Skuse and Brett Pitman). 

MANAGER
Mick McCarthy - Former Republic of Ireland international who played over 250 times for Barnsley as well as stints with Manchester City, Celtic, Lyon and Millwall. He started his managerial career with the Lions before six years in charge of Ireland, leading them to the 2002 World Cup. McCarthy enjoyed three years as Sunderland boss before a prolonged period with Wolves and took over at Portman Road in 2012. 

STAR MAN
Ryan Fraser - Scotland Under-21 international who started his career at Aberdeen. He earned a move to Bournemouth in January 2013 and was part of the Cherries side that gained promotion to the Premier League last season. The promising youngster was sent on loan to Ipswich and has three goals in eight games so far this season. 

OFFICIALS
Peter Bankes is appointed as the man in the middle. He will be assisted by Nick Hobbis and Michael Webb. The fourth official will be Gavin Ward. 

TICKETS
The match is pay on the day for away supporters. 

LAST TIME OUT
Bristol City 2-1 Ipswich Town - A last minute goal from Jon Stead secured all three points for City. Steven Davies cancelled out Daryl Murphy’s opener just after half-time and former Tractor Boy Stead popped up with the winner in stoppage time.
