Cardiff City vs Ipswich Town

, KO: 15:00 Mar 9, 2024, Cardiff City Stadium
Ipswich Town

Ipswich Town travel to Cardiff City for a Championship fixture as they look to maintain their good form. The Welsh side have also caught the eye in recent weeks but Ipswich appear to be playing at a higher level and should have the upper their hand here.

A top 10 finish will be the target for Cardiff City for the rest of the season as they are just inside the top half of the table. A late playoff push may also not be too far-fetched for Erol Bulut’s men, who currently sit seven points off the top six.

Cardiff City have shown some good form in recent weeks, winning their last three matches. They claimed a 1-0 victory over Huddersfield Town in their previous Championship fixture with Famara Diedhiou’s first half effort proving the difference.

The Welsh side have also won their last two matches at the Cardiff City Stadium. However, prior to those results, Cardiff City were winless in six straight home matches, a run that includes a 2-0 defeat to Championship leaders Leicester City and a 3-0 hammering by third placed Leeds United.

Ipswich Town were given a stern test in their 3-2 victory over Bristol City last tine out in the Championship. They fought back from behind twice with efforts from Ali Al Hamadi, Conor Chaplin and Leif Davis sealing the win.

The Hatters are one of the most in-form teams in the Championship at the moment having won their last six matches. Kieran McKenna’s men continue to crank up the pressure on leaders Leicester City as they sit just three points off the pace.

Ipswich Town’s recent good form means they have also impressed on their travels, suffering just one defeat in their last seven away matches. They have won the last three in that run and picked up a 2-0 victory over Plymouth Argyle in their previous fixture on the road.
