West Brom vs Ipswich Town

, KO: 17:30 Nov 25, 2023, The Hawthorns
Ipswich Town

Ipswich Town will be looking to maintain the pressure on Championship leaders Leicester City as they travel to West Brom on Saturday. The Baggies are also pushing for a playoff place and with both teams showing similar form lately, they could be set to cancel each other out.

West Brom are coming off a 2-1 defeat at Southampton in their previous Championship fixture. They fought back from an early setback to level matters through Kyle Bartley but went on to concede the winner late in the encounter.

That was the first defeat in four matches for West Brom, who had picked up three straight wins prior to that loss. Sitting seventh on the table, they had stepped up their playoff push prior to the international break and will be keen to get things back on track.

West Brom will be counting on home support on Friday, although they have been slightly erratic with three wins and two draws from their last six matches at the Hawthorns. Carlos Corberan’s men did pick up a 3-1 victory over Hull City in their previous fixture in front of their fans and will be looking to channel that performance.

While West Brom are pushing for a playoff finish, Ipswich Town appear to be gunning for automatic promotion and possibly the title. They are only second on the standings due to a slightly inferior goal difference having suffered just one Championship defeat all season.

Ipswich Town can be considered the most in-form team in the second tier having gone unbeaten in their last 12 Championship matches. Kieran McKenna’s men have picked up nine wins in that run, including a 3-2 victory over Swansea City in their previous fixture.

One impressive thing about Ipswich Town’s campaign is their away record as they are yet to taste defeat on their travels this season. However, they have lost their dominance in recent times with three draws from their last four Championship matches on the road.
