Ipswich Town Preview – Will the Tractor Boys finally pick up a win?

Paul Cook’s Ipswich Town started their season with a 2-2 home draw with Morecambe. They needed a last-gasp Macauley Bonne effort to rescue a point. However, it has all gone downhill since then.

Ipswich were knocked out of the EFL Cup at the first hurdle by EFL League Two side Newport County. After that, Town have fallen to back-to-back defeats to Burton Albion and Cheltenham Town. Both losses ended 2-1.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1327 GMT, Friday 20 August)

Before a ball was kicked this season, Ipswich were among the favourites for promotion to the Championship. However, the bookies are not so sure now after their poor start. The Tractor Boys are in desperate need of maximum points at the weekend. The home win is priced at 21/20.

MK Dons Preview – Can the Dons pile more misery on Town?

MK Dons have made a mixed start to their campaign. Their pre-season plans were ripped up after Russell Martin left for Swansea City just before their first league game, with Liam Manning taking over. After a 3-3 draw with Bolton Wanderers on the opening weekend, the Dons were beaten at home by Sunderland in game two, which was Manning’s first match in charge.

MK Dons picked up their first win last weekend, edging past Charlton Athletic at Stadium MK. After going a goal down early on, the Dons showed tremendous fighting spirit to come back and get the points. Troy Parrott sent them on their way, and Mo Eisa completed the job.

Even though Martin has gone, MK Dons’ philosophies will remain the same. They like to keep the ball and play the beautiful game – will their style of play reward them with another three points on Saturday?


Ipswich Town vs MK Dons Betting Advice

There was nothing to split the pair when they went head-to-head last season. They drew 1-1 at Stadium MK in October, as the Dons’ Daniel Harvie cancelled out Jon Nolan’s early opener for Ipswich. The game at Portman Road ended all square.

MK Dons have failed to beat Ipswich in five attempts in the league, with the Tractor Boys picking up three wins and two draws.


Key Facts – Ipswich Town vs MK Dons Betting Tip

  • Ipswich are unbeaten in five against the Dons, winning three and drawing two
  • Town have taken just one point from a possible nine thus far
  • MK Dons picked up their first win last time out


With Ipswich languishing down 19th place with no wins to their name, Cook & Co. could certainly do with all three points from this. However, Saturday’s encounter in Suffolk will be a tough one for the Tractor Boys. The last two meetings between the pair have finished all square, and we fancy the 1-1 draw here at 11/2.

Troy Parrott, who is on loan from Tottenham Hotspur, has scored two in his last two for the Dons. The 19-year-old Dubliner could be worth backing in this one.
