Ipswich Town vs Bristol City

, KO: 20:00 Mar 5, 2024, Portman Road
Bristol City

Ipswich Town continue their quest for automatic promotion as they welcome Bristol City to Portman Road for a midweek Championship fixture. Ipswich have looked imperious lately and should be too strong for Bristol, who have lost their way in recent weeks.

After a few stumbles in late January and early February, Ipswich Town now look to be back to their best in recent weeks. They have won their last five matches and claimed a 2-0 victory at Plymouth Argyle last time out in the Championship.

Given the way things are set up on the Championship standings at the moment, Ipswich Town may be in for more than just automatic promotion. Leicester City’s recent struggles mean the Tractor Boys are now just three points off the top and fully in contention to win the title.

Home form has always been pivotal for Ipswich Town, who are unbeaten in their last 15 matches at Portman Road. However, Kieran McKenna’s men have been unconvincing at the back, keeping just two clean sheets in that run.

While Ipswich Town are getting their campaign back on track, Bristol City appear to be going in the opposite direction. They have lost their last three matches and dropped to 13th on the standings.

Bristol City travel to Portman Road off the back of a 1-0 home defeat in their previous Championship fixture. They saw plenty of possession but were wasteful in attack, failing to convert any of their 17 attempts.

Things are just as rough for Bristol City on their travels as they have picked up just two wins in their last 12 Championship away matches. Liam Manning’s men suffered a 2-1 defeat at Sheffield Wednesday in their previous fixture on the road.

How the bookies view it

Ipswich Town are considered overwhelming favourites with a home win priced at 4/7 by William Hill. A victory for Bristol City is valued at 11/2 by Paddy Power while a draw is set at odds of 3/1 by Unibet.

Head to head

Ipswich Town have a 15-10 advantage with six draws from 31 previous matches against Bristol City. The Tractor Boys also claimed a 1-0 victory in the recession fixture back in October with Nathan Broadhead getting the goal.

Players to watch

Kieffer Moore has impressed since joining Ipswich Town in January, scoring five goals in seven appearances. The striker was also on target last Saturday at Plymouth Argyle and is priced at 11/8 by Coral to get on the score sheet.

Bristol City will be looking to take advantage of Ipswich Town’s defensive vulnerability and Tommy Conway will be the one to watch. The forward has six goals this season and is priced at 7/2 by Coral to find the net on Tuesday.

Anything else catch the eye?

Ipswich Town have seen over 3.5 goals in their last three home matches and a repeat is priced at 43/20 by Unibet. Over 2.5 goals is valued at 4/5 by bet365 while 888Sport is offering odds of 5/6 on both teams to score.

The Tractor Boys have scored in both halves in their last two home matches and a repeat is priced at 6/4 with William Hill. Given the minimal odds for a straight home victory, a win and over 2.5 could be considered for more value at 7/5 with BoyleSports.
