Burton vs Ipswich: Preview and Prediction

Burton vs Ipswich Match Preview 14th April 2017

Burton vs Ipswich
England – The Championship
Date: Friday, 14th April 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Pirelli Stadium, Burton upon Trent.

Burton has had a real mixture of form which has summed up their season. The club are currently 5 points clear of Blackburn and the relegation zone and with six matches still remaining there is a chance they could get tangled up in danger.

They will hope that their home form will count for something given that they have lost just once in their last five matches but the problem has been too many draws which has anchored the side down. Fans also want to see more excitement and positive play from the club, which has failed to materialise thus far.

Ipswich would see Burton go one point behind them if they lost to their hosts on Friday evening. The club will feel confident that with a 9 point advantage over the bottom three that they will be safe but an extra 3 points would be very much welcomed.

Like Burton, Ipswich’s form has been mixed and inconsistent, on the road they have no wins in their last 5 games, with 3 draws and two losses in a row.
