Norwich City vs Ipswich Town

, KO: 12:30 Apr 6, 2024, Carrow Road
Ipswich Town

Ipswich Town will be looking to maintain their grip at the top of the standings as they travel to Norwich City for a Championship fixture on Saturday. Norwich are often solid at home and could make things difficult but Ipswich are looking confident at the moment and should have the upper hand.

Norwich City are coming off a 3-1 defeat to Leicester City in their previous Championship fixture. They failed to build on Gabriel Sara’s early opener and struggled to cope with the constant wave of attacks from the Foxes.

That was the first defeat in four matches for Norwich City, who have been solid enough in recent weeks. Sitting sixth on the table, Danny Wagner’s men remain in the mix for the promotion playoffs but will need to be wary of fast rising Coventry City.

Norwich City are generally solid at Carrow Road where they have won their last seven matches. However, they have already been beaten at home by top three sides Leeds United and Leicester City, and could fall to the leaders on Saturday.

With just two points separating the top three, Championship leaders Ipswich Town will be keen to maintain their good form. They appear to be handling the pressure of being top very well having won nine of the last 10 matches.

Ipswich Town travel to Carrow Road off the back of a 3-2 victory over Southampton last time out in the Championship. They appeared to be headed for a draw after coming from behind to level through Leif Davis and Nathan Broadhead before Jeremy Sarmiento struck an injury time winner.

The Tractor Boys are also solid on their travels and have won four of their last five away matches. Kieran McKenna’s men claimed a 1-0 victory at Blackburn Rovers in their previous fixture on the road.
