An upbeat Ipswich tackle high-flying Millwall with renewed confidence.
Town are looking to go four games unbeaten, and a third win on the bounce under manager Mick McCarthy.
Millwall are serious play-off contenders with Kenny Jackett building a solid side that plays good football and can also intimidate with their size and strength.
Tommy Smith told the club website: "Chris is a good mate of mine and it will be good to come up against him on Saturday if we are both playing.
"He`s scoring goals for fun at the moment and he`s definitely one player we will have to keep an eye on.
"I wish him all the best after Saturday but for the 90 minutes I hope he doesn`t get a kick."
Liam Trotter told the Green 'Un: "If I score I`ll definitely be doing a celebration.
"I`ve got nothing but respect for Ipswich, they`re my home-town club and gave me my big break but I`ll celebrate every goal I score. It`s a short career and, as a midfielder, you have to enjoy every goal you get.
'There has never been any grudge against Ipswich. It just wasn`t the right time or place for me.
"It was a hard decision at the time, but I`m happy I made the right one.
"I`ll always want Ipswich to do well, as long as they finish one place below Millwall."
Midfield duo Luke Hyam and Nigel Reo-Coker are both out with injury.
Luke Chambers and Bradley Orr are also doubts after the pair cut short their training sessions with illness and a stiff neck respectively.
Millwall have three key players back from injury, with striker darius Henderson a goal threat while Liam Trotter has blossomed into an influential box to box midfielder.
A tough game for sure but Ipswich have a new resilience and belief and can cause any side problems so I'm going for a 2-1 Town victory.
