Both sides would have been hoping to compete for at least a play-off place this season but will instead contest a dead game at Portman Road as they head for mid-table finishes.
Teenage striker Connor Wickham has scored in the last two games and looks likely to keep his place in attack while Daryl Murphy, Liam Rosenior and Jack Colback are all set for the final games of their loan spells.
Fellow loanee David Healy is out with a knee injury while Carlos Edwards will miss out as he is still recovering from chicken pox.
Former England goalkeeper Richard Wright is fit after nearly five months on the sidelines with a knee injury and could be given a final appearance for the club before his contract expires but Damien Delaney is out.
The defender is out with an ankle injury so youngster Tommy Smith will continue.
The match kicks off at 1pm.
