Ipswich Town Prediction

Ipswich Town sit rock bottom of the Championship and now find themselves 10 points adrift of safety as they prepare for the visit of strugglers Rotherham United as the hosts look to avoid a fourth consecutive defeat in the Championship.

Recent defeats to QPR, Middlesbrough and Millwall have prevented the Tractor Boys from lifting themselves out of the bottom three, but it should be noted that the first two of these three defeats were inflicted upon Ipswich away from home.

The hosts have shown a glimmer of a revival under manager Paul Lambert in recent times with a 1-0 win over Wigan Athletic and a point against high-flying Sheffield United in a 1-1 draw, so despite their current plight, Ipswich have a good chance of getting something from this clash.

Ipswich’s home record stands at 1-7-5 13/19 and along with Birmingham City, hold the joint highest number of draws at home in the Championship, so the draw certainly shouldn’t be ruled out here!

Key-Facts – Ipswich Town v Rotherham United

    • Ipswich are the joint highest with draws at home in the Championship
    • Rotherham have lost three of their last four away from home
    • The last meeting between these two sides at Portman Road ended in a 2-2 draw

Rotherham United Prediction

Rotherham United sit just one league position above the bottom three but hold a valuable three point cushion ahead of third from bottom club Bolton Wanderers as they make their way to East Anglia to face a struggling Ipswich Town outfit at Portman Road.

Nevertheless, Paul Warne’s side are still not out of the woods yet as they’ve lost four of their last seven in the Championship with defeats to Norwich City, West Brom, Bolton Wanderers and Bristol City.

However, Rotherham grabbed a precious three points last time out in the second tier with a much needed 2-1 home win over free-falling Preston North End, so this will be a timely boost for The Millers ahead of this important relegation clash.

Rotherham still remain without an away win though this season amidst an overall away record of 0-4-9 8/24 which includes three defeats from their last four on their travels, while also failing to score in 6 of their 13 away matches to date this term.

Betting Tips Verdict

This match looks a tight one to call, but with both teams struggling for results, the draw appeals at good odds.
