Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Ipswich Town and Burton Albion take on each other at Portman Road on day 18 of the new League One campaign. The Tractor Boys have been having their ups and downs of late. Following a goalless draw with Oxford United, they defeated Plymouth on Matchday 17, while losing to Portsmouth at the weekend. Ipswich seem to be losing the rhythm from the start of the season, and given Burton Albion’s fine form, home win should not be considered.
The Brewers made a slow start to the new campaign, but they have been showing signs of improvement of late. Burton are undefeated in the previous four league fixtures, and we predict that they are going to spoil Ipswich Town’s party at Portman Road. The Tractor Boys midfielder Jon Nolan is unlikely to feature against the Brewers after suffering an injury in the defeat to Portsmouth, as well as several other first-team regulars.
