Coventry City vs Ipswich Town

, KO: 20:00 Apr 30, 2024, The Coventry Building Society Arena
Ipswich Town

Ipswich Town have the chance to claim the upper hand in the promotion chase as they travel to Coventry City for a rescheduled Championship fixture. Ipswich have been a bit erratic on their travels but will still be confident of coming out on top against Coventry, who have been unconvincing at home.

Coventry City are coming off a 0-0 draw at Blackburn Rovers in their previous Championship fixture. They were lucky to come away with a point having been second best for much of the encounter and finishing with just a single attempt on target.

The Sky Blues may have avoided defeat at Blackburn but the performance will be disappointing to manager Mark Robbins. The result also means Coventry City have now picked up just one win from their last six Championship matches, suffering four defeats in that run.

Coventry City are also unconvincing at home having claimed just two wins from their last five matches. They have lost the other three matches and were beaten 3-2 by Hull City in their previous fixture in front of their fans.

Ipswich Town are also coming off a draw as they were held 3-3 at Hull City last time out in the Championship. They led three times thanks to an early effort from George Hirst and a brace from Omari Hutchinson but were pegged back each time.

That was the third straight draw for Ipswich Town, who have been plagued by defensive problems lately, keeping just one clean sheet in their last five Championship matches. They remain third on the table, level on points with second placed Leeds United and can claim the upper hand with a win on Tuesday.

Ipswich Town have been a bit erratic on their recent travels and are winless in their last two away matches. However a closer look at their away form shows that Kieran McKenna’s men have picked up four wins from their last seven fixtures on the road.
