Ipswich Town Preview – Can the Tractor Boys bring festive cheer to Portman Road?

Interim Ipswich Town boss John McGreal, who took over earlier in the month, is still looking for his first win. The Tractor Boys were knocked out of the FA Cup in midweek, losing a second-round replay at Barrow.

In League One, Ipswich are in mid-table after seven wins, seven draws and eight defeats. They have taken just one point from a possible six since beating Crewe Alexandra in late November. Town have been in poor form of late, losing three of their last five league matches.

Our betting prediction:
Sunderland to win & both teams to score

(odds taken 1247 GMT, Friday 17 December)

Ipswich have not been an easy nut to crack at Portman Road in recent months, with just leaders Rotherham leaving with maximum points since September. Can they make home advantage count here?

Sunderland Preview – Black Cats to leave Suffolk with maximum points?

Sunderland will be hoping that this is the year that they finally win promotion back to the EFL Championship. The Black Cats are going great guns under Lee Johnson, winning 13, drawing three and losing five of 21 League One games.

After a little slump in form, Sunderland are back on track, winning four and drawing two of their last six in League One. They beat Morecambe 5-0 at home before seeing off Plymouth Argyle at the Stadium of Light last time out. Sunderland are also through to the last eight of the Carabao Cup, where they play Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium next week.
