It's the battle of the new managers at Selhurst Park tonight when Mick McCarthy takes his Ipswich side to face Crystal Palace who have Ian Holloway in charge for the first time.

Town got off to the perfect start under McCarthy on Saturday with a win at Birmingham, their first victory since August.

But with Palace flying at the top end of the table, he's under no illusions about the task ahead tonight

The fans will be right behind them and then they've got Ollie in who'll bring a whole load of life to it and is certainly going to lift the profile of the place without any doubt... It don't make my job any easier that but I guarantee he'll be sat there knowing full well that it's not going to be easy because I'm bringing Ipswich to them."
