Both sides have come flying out of the blocks in the Championship this season, with three wins and a draw from their opening four games.

Mick McCarthy has previously gained promotion to the Premier League with Sunderland and Wolverhampton Wanderers, and has began his quest for a third success in a very strong manner.

After being denied by two stoppage-time goals at Brentford on the opening weekend, the Tractor Boys have rattled off five consecutive victories in all competitions scoring 12 goals along the way.

Brighton have opened their campaign in equally impressive fashion, but suffered a setback in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night when they lost 2-1 to League One side Walsall.

Chris Hughton also knows what it takes to get promoted, having done it with Newcastle United in 2010, and he has got the Seagulls on the right track so far.

They have lost three of their last four meetings with Ipswich, but did win the most recent one back in January.
