Ipswich vs Gillingham Prediction
Ipswich suffered a 1-0 defeat against Portsmouth on the road in their previous encounter. It marked the second consecutive loss in their form.
Also, the host has been winless in the last five fixtures in the campaign. Even though they have scored 29 goals in 20 appearances, they have been drawing too many games lately.
Also, the host has been winless at home for the past four clashes. Since they have lost only twice in their nine home matches so far, they can be counted on to make a comeback at home.
In the meantime, Gillingham has only one win in their 10 trips on the road so far this season. Also, they are winless in four of the last five away fixtures.
Even so, their previous encounter at home against MK Dons ended in favor of Gillingham. Hence, the traveling squad will be looking to build upon that in the clash.
However, Ipswich is in a better overall position in the league. So, defeating the host at their own turf will not be easy for the visitors.
Henceforth, Ipswich has more chance of winning the game at their home ground.
