Ipswich Town take on Derby County in a Championship match at Pride Park tomorrow night (7.45pm).

As always we broadcast Mick McCarthy’s pre-match press conference live, right here, at 1pm.

The Blues lost 2-0 at Aston Villa on Saturday and have now claimed just 14 points from their last 14 games.

Mick McCarthy’s men may be among the division’s leading scorers, but only no-one outside the bottom five has conceded more. And the Blues haven’t kept a clean sheet away from home in the league for 18 matches now.

Derby climbed into sixth-spot with an eye-catching 3-0 win at Middlesbrough on Saturday – Matej Vydra scoring a hat-trick.

Gary Rowett’s in-form side – which contains ex-Blues loan star Tom Lawrence and arch-nemesis striker David Nugent (15 goals in 15 games against Town) – have lost just one of their last 11 and won six of the last eight.

Tommy Smith will be watching from afar as Ipswich Town attempt to find a new level of consistency to force their way into the Championship play-offs.

Tommy Smith leaves Ipswich Town after more than 267 appearances for the Blues over 10 years - he certainly made his mark. We’ve picked out the best pictures from his time at Portman Road.

Ipswich Town U23s paid for failing to convert their chances as they lost 2-0 to Sheffield United in the Premier League Cup at Portman Road, writes Harry Mallett.

Ipswich Town will miss the ‘influence and experience’ of departing stalwart Tommy Smith, according to striker Martyn Waghorn.

Long-serving defender Tommy Smith admits the tears were flowing when he said goodbye to his Ipswich Town team mates having today completed his move to MLS side Colorado Rapids.

Ipswich Town remain 12th in the Championship table following Saturday’s dire 1-1 draw at lowly Bolton Wanderers.

Martyn Waghorn knows he and his team-mates must rediscover their clinical side and begin to put together winning runs if they are maintain any kind of play-off push.
