Blackburn Rovers vs Ipswich Town

, KO: 17:30 Mar 29, 2024, Ewood Park
Ipswich Town

Ipswich Town will be looking to maintain the pressure on the frontrunners as they travel to Blackburn Rovers for a Friday night Championship fixture. With Blackburn looking out of sorts lately, Ipswich will fancy their chances of coming out on top.

Blackburn Rovers head into Friday’s clash off the back of a 0-0 draw at Middlesbrough in their previous Championship fixture. They created several goalscoring opportunities but lacked the cutting edge in attack.

The result means manager John Eustace is still seeking his first win since replacing Jon Dahl Tomasson in February. Blackburn Rovers are winless in their last nine matches and are just three points above the relegation zone.

Blackburn Rovers have been plagued by too many draws lately having been held seven times in their last nine matches. They have also drawn their last four home matches and have failed to keep a clean sheet at Ewood Park since October.

Things are very tight at the top of the Championship table with just one point separating the top three. After a few stumbles, third placed Ipswich Town have played themselves back into contention, winning seven of their last eight matches.

Ipswich Town are coming off an impressive 6-0 victory over Sheffield Wednesday last time out in the Championship. Omari Hutchinson and Ali Al Hamadi netted a brace each while Cameron Burgess and Nathan Broadhead were also on target.

The Tractor Boys have also looked decent on their recent travels, with three wins in their last four away matches. However, Kieran McKenna’s men have kept just two clean sheets in their last six fixtures on the road.

How the bookies view it

Head to head

Blackburn Rovers have a 10-8 advantage with 11 draws from 28 previous matches against Ipswich Town. However, Ipswich claimed a 4-3 victory in the reverse fixture back in September.

Players to watch

Nathan Broadhead took his tally to 12 goals for the season with his effort last time out and could be worth keeping an eye on. The forward was also on target in the reverse fixture and is priced at 2/1 by Unibet to find the net on Friday.

Anything else catch the eye
