Ipswich vs Gillingham Prediction
Town is easily the best in business in the League One at the moment. And they have justified this claim with their performances so far. The team remains the only one yet to taste defeat in the league competition, and have scored the third-most number of goals while conceding the least.
Quite expectedly they are at the top of the table, and as a cherry on top, they have made a winning start to the EFL Trophy too.
Moreover, the team has home advantage, and they are on an unbeaten run of ten fixtures. They also managed to win eight of the previous nine overall games, and importantly, let in a total of just two goals from their former eight games.
Going on, their opposite number is winless in their prior seven match-ups on the road and failed to score in three of their prior six.
Finally, previous h2h clashes too firmly place the League One toppers as favorites against the 15th placed squad from the same tournament.
