Ipswich v Southampton: How to watch, TV channel, kick-off time, head-to-head stats and team news

Things are getting tight at the top of the Championship and both Ipswich and Southampton will see three points from their Portman Road clash as vital if they are to stay in the hunt for a Premier League spot.

The Tractor Boys are having a great season back in the second tier and were the big winners in the promotion race on Friday, as they won at Blackburn to go top of the table with chief rivals Leeds and Leicester both failing to win.

The Suffolk side have been full of goals at home, but Southampton are not giving up the automatic promotion chase despite being pegged back by a late Middlesbrough equaliser on Good Friday.
