Stoke will want to hang on to top spot by claiming another three points at the Brit tomorrow, but Ipswich are also gunning for promotion and tomorrow's clash will should be an enthralling encounter with a crowd of around 23,000 expected.
Pulis is wary of the Tractor Boys' recent improved away form: 'Their away form has picked up. I think Jim has done an outstanding job there. He had a little bit of difficulty last season sorting all out but they've done fantastically well and they'll fancy their chances.'
But he says that another good turn-out from fans will be a big boost: 'We've got to make it daunting and make sure we play to the level that we can play to, and create the atmosphere and the noise that we've created in the last two home games.'
Danny Pugh will sit out a one match ban, which may allow Gaby Zakuani or Andy Wilkinson a start. It's unclear yet whether Pulis will choose to drop Simonsen in favour of new loan signing, Marton Fulop.
Fresh from being named the top Championship player in the Football League's weekly Actim index, his two goals last Friday against Scunthorpe boosted his season's tally to twelve.
Jim Magilton is able to choose from a full squad as the Tractor Boy's look to continue their improved away form.

Sunday 2nd March: QPR (away) kick-off: 1.15pm
Saturday 8th March: Burnley (home) kick-off: 3pm
