The game between Cardiff City and Ipswich Town in the Championship on Saturday 24th November 2007 at 12:00 takes centre stage for FootyMad's preview analysis.
Cardiff City prepare to entertain Ipswich Town at Ninian Park at lunchtime on Saturday, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 7 of the 17 previous games, with the Bluebirds winning just 6.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Ninian Park was less than a year ago, in December 2006, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a Championship match.
