Ipswich vs Burton
England League Championship
Date: Tuesday, 18th October 2016,
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Portman Road, Ipswich.
Ipswich Town are one of the Championship sides that are struggling at the bottom half of the table after 12 match-days into the new season. One of the significant problems that needed attention is their goal drought. The Tractor Boys once again played out a goal-less draw at Blackburn this weekend, registering their fifth consecutive league match in which they have failed to score. They are currently without a win in five matches, however 3 of them are 0-0 draws.
The newly promoted Burton Albion will be having a top priority of staying in the Championship for at least another season. The way they started the season is satisfying and they currently stay put at 16th position in the league standings. They held Wigan Athletic to a goal-less draw on the weekend extending their unbeaten run to 3 games. The Brewers have won only once in their last 7 league games, but picked four useful draws during the period.

Ipswich vs Burton: Prediction
Ipswich are currently win-less in their last 5 Championship games, but are heavily dependent on home matches for the fair share of the points. They have only lost once in front of home fans this season, while taking 2 wins and 2 draws from 5 matches so far. However their 5 match goal-drought have to be addressed and this is one main reason which stop us from backing them for a win here.
Burton are also on a similar kind of run especially while playing way from home. They haven’t won a single match away from this season. But their form can be slightly better as they have held higher ranked teams to draws on four occasions. A combination of Ipswich’s inability to score and Burton’s efficiency in stealing draws the match could end in a stalemate.
