Two of the Championship's three unbeaten sides meet at Portman Road in what promises to be a real test of their promotion credentials.
After back-to-back clean sheets, Ipswich face the leaders and top scorers. QPR have netted 14 goals already this season and have had a whopping 74 attempts on goal - more than any other side in the division.
Rangers staged a late fightback to snatch a draw at Derby and had to be patient on Saturday, before scoring three times in 10 second-half minutes to see off Middlesbrough. But they have tended to start well this term, with six of their goals coming in the first half.
Ipswich, on the other hand, have not netted before the 50th minute and are one of only two teams yet to score a Championship goal in the first half. They will replace Rangers at the top of the table if they win and Cardiff lose at Leicester.
