Brentford vs Ipswich Town
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 7 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Griffin Park (Brentford).
Brentford returned into the contest of the promotional playoffs after a surprising 0-1 win over Bristol City on Monday evening. The Bees are now five points off the top six positions and they will have a nice chance to back up the mentioned victory on Saturday when Ipswich Town travel to Griffin Park.
The Tractor Boys are just a single position below, but they don’t have much to hope for being five points adrift of the Bees in 11th. Mick McCarthy’s men have not been pulling up any trees lately and they will come into this winless in five subsequent league affairs. On the positive note, the Tractor Boys have finally managed to score a goal after failing to do so in four straight outings. Actually, they’ve bagged two on Monday afternoon, but it still wasn’t enough for the win as Millwall got away with the point from Portman Road Stadium.
Ipswich could return to the old habits here at Griffin Park since the hosts have been quite tough to break down lately. The Bees have shipped just two goals in last three league ties even though the opposition included promotional contenders Middlesbrough, Sheffield United and Bristol City.
Brentford vs Ipswich Town: Head-to-head
The hosts have a nice chance to make it all square at three wins, draws and losses for each of the teams in their ninth head to head encounter,.
Ipswich came on top when the two sides met in this term of the Championship, back in August last year at Portman Road Stadium (2-0).
Each of last three H2H games has seen exactly two goals scored.
Brentford vs Ipswich Town: Prediction
This is a fantastic opportunity for Dena Smith’s side to capitalize on the huge 0-1 win over Bristol City.
Since the Tractor Boys have been struggling for goals lately, we’d not be surprised to see the hosts keep a clean sheet here.
