Ipswich Town vs Barnsley: Preview and Predictions

Ipswich Town vs Barnsley
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 10 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Portman Road Stadium (Ipswich).

The Tykes have grabbed themselves a huge survival lifeline on Saturday afternoon when they stunned Sheffield United at Oakwell Stadium. It was the first win in seven games for Barnsley who are now only two points shy of the safe zone. Can Jose Morais and his men back up this victory and clinch another result just three days later when they visit Suffolk to take on Ipswich Town at Portman Road Stadium.

Ipswich’s form has seen plenty of stumbling blocks so far in the season. The Tractor Boys are going through one of many crises just at the moment and they’ll come into this after claiming only a single point in last five league ties. Luckily for Mick McCarthy, his side has been enjoying a fine spell of form earlier on, meaning the relegation zone is still far away, in spite of the drop in form. Ipswich Town have failed to find the back of the net in four of last five league games. They’ll come into this off the back of a 1-0 loss to Brentford on Saturday at Griffin Park.

The Tykes have been red-hot in the final third recently. They’ve notched as many as five goals in last two league outings, even though the opposition included the promotional contenders Bristol City and Sheffield United. Team’s top scorers are Tom Bradshaw (9 goals so far) and Oliver McBurnie (7 goals in the season). They were both on target in the mentioned victory over the Blades at the weekedn.

Ipswich Town vs Barnsley: Head-to-head

The head to head tie entirely favours Ipswich Town.

The Tractor Boys have won 13 and lost only 5 of 28 encounters against Barnsley.

It is interesting to note that each of last seven head to head games has seen both teams on the scoresheet.

Ipswich Town vs Barnsley: Prediction

The Tykes are desperate for points and they have been enjoying a better form of late.

We thus just have to back the away win or draw at the odds of 1.42 as the main bet, while braver tipsters can try with Barnsley’s win at 2.62.
