Leeds United vs Ipswich Town

, KO: 12:30 Dec 23, 2023, Elland Road
Ipswich Town

It is third against second as Leeds United host high-flying Ipswich Town in a Championship fixture on Saturday. Both teams have been impressive so far this season especially going forward and having produced a seven goal thriller in the reverse fixture, another high-scoring encounter could be expected here.

Leeds United are having a fine campaign and lead the promotion playoff charge as they are currently third on the table. Sitting 10 points behind second placed Ipswich Town, their task on Saturday will be to cut down the gap to the automatic promotion places with a win.

The Lilywhites will head into Saturday’s clash with some confidence having lost just once in their last nine matches. They have picked up six wins in that run but were held 1-1 by Coventry City in their previous Championship fixture.

Another reason for confidence is Leeds United’s home form as they are yet to taste defeat in front of their fans this season. However, Daniel Farke’s men have been unconvincing at the back and are without a clean sheet in their last six home matches.

Ipswich Town are also coming off a draw as they were held 2-2 at home by Norwich City last time out in the Championship. Despite taking an early lead through Nathan Broadhead, they found themselves behind after the break and needed an effort from Wesley Burns to salvage a point.

That was a rare off day for Ipswich Town, who still found a way to avoid defeat. Kieran McKenna’s men have lost just once in their last 18 Championship matches and are three points behind Leicester City at the top of the standings.

Ipswich Town have also impressed on their travels this season, losing just once away from home so far. However, they have struggled to keep things tight at the back having kept just one clean sheet in their last five Championship matches on the road.
