Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Back in 2001 Ipswich Town crushed Sunderland 5-0 in the Premier League clash, but ever since the two teams have been facing each other in lower leagues only. Both sides aim to return to the English top flight; therefore, we are positive that we will see a lively contest at the Stadium of Light. The Black Cats are considered one of the most unpredictable sides in the league, with the team having their ups and downs throughout the season.
Sunderland failed to impress in a 2-0 loss at Portsmouth, but they are surely capable of matching Ipswich on home soil as the Tractor Boys experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-1 defeat to Peterborough United. January signing Kyle Lafferty will be one of the men to keep an eye on in the home team, and we predict that he is going to help the Black Cats get back on course.
