WHAT price an Ipswich Town victory in Sunday's final fixture of the season, against promotion-chasing Leeds United?

A crumb of comfort; a modicum of dignity in this most turbulent of campaigns.

With relegation long since confirmed, Sunday's game will be Town's last Championship fixture before their reincarnation as a League One outfit.

And how nice would it be to bow out with a positive, pleasing and uplifting performance?

Paul Lambert's side are playing for nothing more than pride, of course, and the result will have little outcome on their season.

They can't even clamber off bottom spot and avoid the wooden spoon position.

But after months in the doldrums, it's the very least their long-suffering supporters deserve.

Leeds, clearly, will be tough opposition, sitting third but presumably still smarting at their inability to secure an automatic promotion place.

A disastrous Easter - finishing empty-handed against both Wigan and Brentford - shattered their chances and last week's draw against Aston Villa sealed second spot for Sheffield United.

Town's last-day record is pretty poor, since the turn of the millennium.

They have only won eight of their 19 matches (excluding play-off games) and the first of those was way back in 2000, when they saw off Walsall 2-0.

They also won 4-1 at Derby in 2003 and enjoyed consecutive last-day cheer against Cardiff, Hull and Coventry in 2007, 2008 and 2009 respectively.

In more recent years, Town finished their 2011/12 campaign with a 3-2 win at Doncaster, sunk Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 in 2014 and pipped Derby 1-0 in 2016.

Along the way there have also been some disappointments, too.

Final-day fixtures have included defeats against the likes of Forest, Blackburn, Burnley, Leicester, Sheffield United, Plymouth and, most notably, a 5-0 reverse at Liverpool when Town were relegated from the Premier League.
