Barnsley vs Ipswich Town: Preview and Prediction

Barnsley vs Ipswich Town
English Football League Championship
Date: 11th March 2017, Saturday
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Oakwell, Barnsley.

Barnsley are 12 points from a play-off place and this opportunity against Ipswich seems like it will be their last chance to try and claim a spot. However the home team come into this game in desperate form having not won in 4 matches.

At the Oakwell, they have one of the worst home records in the league with just 33% of games won, they have also conceded more than they have scored which is never a good sign. To make matters worse they haven’t won at home in almost two months, spreading over four games.

Ipswich has drawn their last 5 games, four of which has ended in the same correct score of 1-1. In 16th place Ipswich are 9 points from the drop zone and should be fine and so they don’t at this stage of the season have much to play for.

Away from home they have just 4 wins all season and their last two away games has ended 1-1. They have just one win in their past five away games.

Barnsley vs Ipswich Town: Prediction

Motivation is a big key here; both teams are in a limbo in the Championship, if either loses or drops points it isn’t really the end of the world. Therefore we shouldn’t be risking our investment on a win market. Considering the history and the form of these teams only one bet makes sense.
