History of the Sunderland v Ipswich Town fixture

Sunderland are ready to welcome Ipswich Town to Stadium Of Light on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Black Cats are clearly on top, winning 60.87% of the games played between the two.

The previous match played between the two at Stadium Of Light was within the last three years, in November 2004, with Sunderland running out comfortable 2-0 winners in a Championship match.
