Ipswich Town vs Sheffield United
English League Championship
Date: Saturday, 10th March 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Portman Road (Ipswich).
Ipswich looks like a team that has already secured mid-table finish without realistic chances for anything more than that. The team looks to be able to defeat similar and lower placed sides but lacks the means to challenge the top dogs.
Midweek they piled some more misery on top of Sheffield Wednesday’s fans. After a goalless first half the sides exchanged goals in the second. The last word though had Waghorn who scored 2nd goal for Ipswich in the 83rd minute. This was enough for the team to take all the points.
Sheffield United are still in contention for the play-offs but the team is slowly falling behind. They are now 3 points away from Middlesbrough on 6th place. The main problem here is their inconsistency as the team sometimes takes a surprise victories over strong opponents and follows with a defeat to bottom table side.
Last round Sheffield lost to Fulham without putting much fight. Cottagers were the superior side controlling the flow and creating chances. The 3-0 defeat damaged Sheffield’s chances for top 6 and the team needs to answer back.
