Ipswich host Hull at Portman Road in a top of Sky Bet Championship clash.
Victory would see Ipswich go top with Leicester not in action until Wednesday evening, whilst a win would see Hull climb to fourth in the table.
Lee Evans is a doubt for Ipswich after he was substituted with a knee injury in their 1-1 draw at Huddersfield last weekend.
Sam Morsy could return after he served an one-match ban but Nathan Broadhead (thigh) is doubtful and could face a late fitness test.
Hull will welcome Jacob Greaves back into contention following his suspension in their 1-1 draw at home to Plymouth.

- Jacob Greaves has been booked in all four of Hull’s away matches in the Championship this season.
Having not expected Ipswich to be in the promotion mix even at this stage of the season, I am surprised at how well they’ve done even if they did have to fight back for a point at Huddersfield – in a game where they were wasteful for much of the game.
Kieran McKenna’s Tractor Boys though are in a busy early phase of the season at present so scraping that point is a positive, especially with a squad containing some players still adapting to this league yet they look strong across the pitch with proven goalscorers delivering goals.
Hull meanwhile were similarly wasteful in their draw against Plymouth and are unbeaten since their opening day defeat in the league, so I expect them to turn up ready to provide Ipswich with a difficult test which could well get scrappy.
Ipswich however do look more solid and are yet to draw a blank this season but Hull are a gutsy well-drilled team who won’t make life easy, so another draw might be on the cards.
Prediction: Ipswich 1-1 Hull
Result: Ipswich 3-0 Hull
