Ipswich Town vs Huddersfield Town

, KO: 12:30 May 4, 2024, Portman Road
Huddersfield Town

Ipswich Town host Huddersfield Town in their final Championship fixture of the season as they look to secure automatic promotion. Huddersfield have been woeful in recent weeks and should be no match for Ipswich on Saturday.

Luton Town are coming off a 2-1 victory at Coventry City in their previous Championship fixture. They were given a stern test by the hosts but goals in each half from Kieffer Moore and Cameron Burgess were enough to earn them the win.

That was the first win in five matches for Ipswich Town, who are back in the driver's seat in the race for automatic promotion. Kieran McKenna’s men are second on the table three points above Leeds United and need just a point to secure a return to top flight football.

Although Ipswich Town only need a draw on Saturday, their home record will give them extra confidence of going one better. They are unbeaten in their last eight matches at Portman Road, claiming five wins in that run while also keeping just two clean sheets.

Huddersfield Town travel to Portman Road off the back of a 1-1 draw with Birmingham City last time out in the Championship. They fell behind on the stroke of halftime but struck back just after the restart through Rhys Healey.

That result means Huddersfield Town have now picked up just one win from their last 11 matches, leaving them second from bottom on the standings. Sitting three points from safety, survival seems unlikely for Andre Breitenreiter’s team as they need a win and a 15 goal swing to retain their Championship status for another season.

Huddersfield Town have been poor travellers all season and head into Saturday’s clash with just one win from their last 10 away matches. However three of the last four fixtures in that run have ended in draws, including a 1-1 scoreline at Bristol City in their previous fixture on the road.

Huddersfield Town will be looking to capitalise on Ipswich Town’s vulnerable backline and Delano Burgzorg will be the one to watch having scored seven Championship goals. The forward was also on target in the reverse fixture and is priced at 7/1 by Unibet to find the net.

Anything else catch the eye?

Both teams were on target in the reverse fixture and a repeat is priced at 10/11 by Betfred. Ipswich Town have seen over 2.5 goals in their last two matches and a similar outcome is priced at 13/25 by Unibet, who is also offering 11/8 for over 3.5 goals.

Ipswich Town are priced at minimal odds for a straight victory so a win and both teams to score could be considered at 7/4 with bet365.
