Preston vs Ipswich Town
Date: Friday, 19 April 2019
Kick-Off 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Deepdale Stadium (Preston).
Preston host Ipswich Town in an affair which will by no means affect the final standings at the end of the Championship season. Hoists lost all hopes of challenging the promotional play-offs with a horrendous streak of four successive defeats, while Ipswich Town hold the rock-bottom of the ladder and are currently the only team with confirmed relegation to League One football.
The Tractor Boys have, however, grown in from ever since they were actually relegated. They held the likes of Bristol City and Nottingham Forest two straight 1-1 draws and saw off Bolton Wanderers 1-2 on the road in recent fixtures. Last weekend saw Ipswich Town playing a 1-1 draw to Birmingham City at their Portman Road Stadium. Can they at least move away from the very foot of the league ladder in last four rounds of the season?
Preston vs Ipswich Town: Head-to-head
The head to head statistics is all level at 9 wins, draws and losses for each of outfits.
Just one of last six head to head matches produced three or more goals.
Teams drew 1-1 when they met each other in the first part of the season in mid-December at Portman Road Stadium.
Preston vs Ipswich Town: Prediction
The Lilywhites fell down to 12th place in the league ladder after the aforementioned streak of four straight defeats. The last one was probably the toughest as it saw Preston ship four goals to West Bromwich Albion away at The Hawthorns.
We can thus say it was a subpar campaign for Alex Neil and his men in this term of Championship. The Scottish manager will find it hard to motivate his lads for this fixture after such a dreadful spell of form. Ipswich Town definitely showed much more enthusiasm in the last couple of weeks and we find the value in backing them not to lose at 2.40 odds. Braver tipsters can chase the 1-1 correct score longshot at 7.00 odds.
