Ipswich Town vs Bristol City
Date: Wednesday, 28 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Portman Road Stadium (Ipswich).
Ipswich Town could not do more than a valiant 1-2 defeat to promotional candidates West Bromwich Albion in the league’s first game of the Matchday on Friday evening. Nonetheless, it was an enthusiastic atmosphere and an overall display from the Blues who still sit at the very foot of the Championship ladder. They will have a nice opportunity to back up such fine showing and grab a result on Wednesday night when fellow strugglers Bristol City come to visit Portman Road Stadium in the mid-week outing.
The visitors made it four defeats on the trot on Saturday when they did little to harm the third-placed Leeds United at Elland Road. The Robins did hold on to a goalless draw until 20 minutes from time but it was honestly only a matter of time when they’d concede the opener. Things got worse when midfielder Josh Brownhill was sent off ten minutes after the break for the second booking offense after a dreadful challenge on first goal-scorer Kemar Roofe. The Englishman won’t be able to feature the Wednesday’s clash at Portman Road Stadium as a consequence.
Ipswich Town vs Bristol City: Head-to-head
Ipswich Town have always been a tricky opposition to the Robins.
This can especially be said for matches at Portman Road Stadium where the Blues won 9, drew 3 and lost just 2 of 14 games against Bristol City.
Nevertheless, we have to say the Robins came on top on both occasions when these two likes met each other in the previous term of the competition.
Ipswich Town vs Bristol City: Prediction
Lee Johnson’s men fell down to 14th in the league ladder after losing four in a row in Championship. They will come face to face with a highly-motivated opposition who were given a round of applause at the end of 90 minutes of a strong resistance against the likes of WBA on Friday night.
Paul Lambert looks to have found the wanted chemistry and Bristol City are just ideal opponents for it to be turned into a result here. The home win is well worth backing at 3.20, while more conservative tipsters can try with Ipswich Town not to lose at the odds of 1.60.
