Fleetwood have built up a wonderful head of steam to play their way into the playoff contention in League One. They make the trip to Ipswich on Tuesday night and will be facing the Tractor Boys who are a little out of sorts at the moment.

Ipswich’s top-six hopes fading

The Tractor Boys are on a bit of a slump in League One, having lost four of their last six. They have claimed a win in just one of their last seven played (W1 D1 L5). So there is going to be reason enough for punters to oppose them.

The home record of Ipswich this season is W6 D5 L4 but they have lost two for their last three at Portman Road (W1).

A victory for Ipswich would lift them level on points with Fleetwood, while defeat would shut the door on their top-six ambitions a little further.

Ipswich have scored an average of 1.5 goals per home game this season, conceding at just a shade over a goal per game. In total, they have banked a clean sheet in a third of their home games during the campaign.

Our betting prediction:
Fleetwood 1 goal winning margin

(odds taken 23:57 GMT Sunday, 2 March)

Four of the six successes that Ipswich have secured on home soil have been by at least a three-goal margin. Of the goals that they have conceded at Portman Road, 62% have gone against them in the first 45-minutes of action.

They have opened the scoring in 5 of 15 home fixtures, and while they have the second-best away record currently in the league, only four teams have collected fewer home points than Ipswich have.


Fleetwood running hot at the moment

Fleetwood are unbeaten in their last nine league games and are certainly trending. They have taken a win in five of their last six played (D1) and this would be a huge three points for them to keep that momentum going.

The away record that Fleetwood have secured in this campaign is W5 D4 L6. Their current unbeaten away streak stands at four games, winning two of their last three on their travels. One of those notably was at top-four side Wycombe.

In total, The Cod Army have suffered just one loss in their last fifteen league fixtures. So far in this campaign, they have taken a good W2 D2 L1 record from away games played against teams who are currently sitting inside the top nine with them.

So there should be something in this for the visitors, who are on a nine-match scoring streak in League One currently.

If a win was to come their way then it’s probably going to only be a narrow one as that has been the trend with them.

11 of the 16 league successes that Fleetwood have secured this season have been by a one-goal margin. The Cod Army have opened the scoring in more than half of their road games as well.


Ipswich vs Fleetwood Betting Advice

A glance at the current would show which way to swing in this fixture. Fleetwood are in good shape at the moment and have held their own (for the large part) on the road against stronger teams in the division this season.

They can collect three points on their visit to Portman Road.


Key Facts – Ipswich vs Fleetwood Betting Tip

  • Ipswich have lost four of their last six league fixtures
  • Ipswich and Fleetwood meet for the first time this season

Given the trend of margin wins for them, then the 1-goal margin win for Fleetwood is where it is at. Ipswich just haven’t really been in great shape at Portman road since the end of October last year, winning only three of their last ten league home games.
