Blues handed tough opening day fixture at Griffin Park as the 2015/16 Championship fixtures are releasedTown will kick-off the 2015/16 with an away trip to last season’s fellow Play-Off semi-finalists Brentford, before following that up with home games against Sheffield Wednesday and Burnley.
After a visit to Deepdale to face newly-promoted Preston, the Blues will finish the opening month by welcoming Brighton to Portman Road.
September sees Town’s first Tuesday night away game of the season as they travel to face Leeds before later that month they take on last season’s League One Champions Bristol City at home.
October sees Town travel to the KC Stadium to face recently-relegated Hull before quickly following that up with another away trip to Nottingham Forest. Mick McCarthy’s side end the month back at home though with Cardiff City the visitors.
November sees Town face two home ties against Bolton and Wolves, both of whom left Portman Road empty handed last season, before they travel to Charlton hoping to take three points back from The Valley.

These will be quickly followed by back-to-back home games against Derby and QPR, with the latter travelling to Portman Road for a Boxing Day clash. Mick McCarthy’s men will end the month with a trip to Brighton.
A trip to Turf Moor to take on Burnley will provide a challenging start to the New Year, although three home games in the month of January should provide Town with the opportunity to pick up some valuable points.
February sees Town face the other two relegated sides as they visit Loftus Road and Hull come to Portman Road. Sandwiched between these two games are clashes against Bristol City and another home game versus Blackburn.
March sees the Blues travel to Wales to face Cardiff, in a month in which they have home games against Rotherham and Nottingham Forest.
