Ipswich Town Preview – Can Ipswich kick-start season?

Having collected just three wins out of their last nine matches overall in League One, Tuesday night’s hosts, Ipswich Town, find themselves in a disappointing 9th place in the third tier but are still just two points adrift of the play-off pack prior to these midweek fixtures.

Victories against Plymouth Argyle and Burton Albion (home and away) have been overshadowed by five defeats, all of which have been inflicted upon the Tractor Boys at Portman Road, losing to Hull City, Charlton Athletic, Portsmouth, Swindon Town and Peterborough United.

An overall home record of 7-0-5 14/13 suggests that Ipswich tend no to bother with the draw and although they started in excellent fashion, winning their first six home matches on the trot, Ipswich have managed just one further win from their subsequent six matches, while eight of Ipswich’s 12 home matches have seen under 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Sunderland Preview – Can Sunderland continue ascent?

A narrow 1-0 home win over Shrewsbury Town on the weekend saw Sunderland move up into 7th place in the League One standings and just a point behind 6th placed Charlton Athletic and the play-off pack prior to their trip down to east anglia to take on Ipswich Town.

Sunderland have made slow but steady progress under manager, Lee Johnson, who succeeded Phil Parkinson in the Sunderland hot-seat, as his Black Cats side have lost just twice in the eight matches he’s been in charge of, while also picking up wins against Lincoln City, AFC Wimbledon and Shrewsbury Town.

The Black Cats still remain unbeaten away from home too this season with a solid looking 5-5-0 17/4 record under their belts on the road but the high number of draws is a concern in terms of the straight win markets; however, the goals market appeals as seven of Sunderland’s 10 away matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals.
