Ipswich is easily one of the best teams in the league, and they certainly are in the hunt for the top-most spot. They do have a game in hand, and with the current topper, Peterborough, taking on a tough customer, Coventry, Paul Lambert’s men will definitely target a rearrangement at the top of the table.

Southend vs Ipswich Prediction
Sol Campbell’s men were winless in 18 of their previous 20 overall games, and embarrassingly they lost 15 of the prior 19 too. Just the last day, the team lost at home 1-7 to Doncaster.
Moreover, the squad is completely winless in front of the home crowd this campaign, and disregarding a single draw, holds a 100% losing record at the Roots Hall in 2019-20.
On the other hand, the Tractor Boys were unbeaten in 16 of their preceding 19 overall match-ups and won nine of their former twelve ties as well. On the road, the cavalry won four of their preceding five trips and kept clean sheets in all four.
Finally, results of former h2h clashes too have come out in favor of the recently relegated boys, and they certainly are the overwhelming favorites for the match-day.
