Dutch full-back Fabian Wilnis says it will be a proud moment when he reaches 200 Town appearances when the Blues come up against Rotherham at Millmoor on Saturday.
Wilnis joined Town from De Graafschap in January 1999 as a replacement for Mauricio Taricco, on the recommedation of former Blue Romeo Zondervan, who he had played alongside at NAC Breda.
The 33-year-old has had his ups and downs in his time at Portman Road, his 2001/02 bust-up with former boss George Burley the major down.
He says the best times were reaching the Premiership and qualifying for the UEFA Cup: "Wembley and promotion to the Premiership, the our first season there and playing in Europe - they are the ups in my time with Ipswich."
Wilnis says he hopes to remain with the club after his contract ends in the summer: "Of course I would like to stay. I have enjoyed my time with Ipswich - I love the place - and I want to be at the club as long as possible."
