  • These two teams have fought each other just once, and the game was the reverse fixture of this upcoming encounter. Then, Ipswich won on the road, 0-1.

Ipswich vs Fleetwood Prediction

Ipswich were defeated on the road 2-1 by Blackpool the last match-day. The fact that the guests conceded the winning goal in the 90+3rd minute will surely be a demotivating factor in the minds of the players.

In the meantime, Fleetwood were held to a 1-1 draw the prior game week by Sunderland. The latter scored the equalizer in the 90+7th minute of the fixture, and had they not done that, Fleetwood would have been on a six-game winning run. Still, at present, they are on a streak of nine games without a loss, and had won five of their past six matches.

Moreover, Fleetwood have two matches in hand, and they are trailing by just two points below the playoff zone. A win in one of these fixtures would place them in a favorable position to qualify for the post-season proceedings. 

It helps that Ipswich are on a two-game losing run, and that they were winless in 19 of their preceding 23 match-ups. At home, they remained winless in nine of their last twelve appearances as well. Fleetwood on the other hand, have lost just twice on the road since the first week of November.

Taking into account all these observations, it’s expected that Fleetwood will attempt for the three points against the terribly off-form Ipswich. And by the looks of things, Fleetwood should be able to deliver an impressive performance.
