Ipswich Town vs Barnsley Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (19:45) fixture is an important one at the bottom of the Championship as it features the side third bottom of the table.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Ipswich extended their winless run to six games on Saturday as they went down 1-0 away to Brentford.  Town can have few complaints about the result as they struggled to create any chances.

Barnsley picked up a crucial three points last time out as they defeated Sheffield United 3-2 in a Yorkshire derby.  They had a goal each from Gary Gardener, Ollie McBurnie and Tom Bradshaw to thank for all three points that they were a little lucky to get.

The reverse fixture came early in the season and saw the Suffolk side come out on top with a 2-1 road victory.  Tom Bradshaw had put the Yorkshire outfit ahead but a goal each from David McGoldrick and Martyn Waghorn enabled the Tractor Boys to take the points.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Bookmakers are having trouble splitting the pair and I can see why as Ipswich are clearly the better team over the season but Barnsley are in better form and are more in need of the points.

The Tykes have netted in the first-half of three of their last four and I think they look value to get a goal in the first 45 minutes this also brings in the time of the first goal which is set at 58:00.

Ipswich Town Preview

Just two points from their last six fixtures means Town are ending the season in slow fashion with them sitting in 14th place.  It has already been confirmed that Mick McCarthy is leaving at the end of the season so they are just holding time for the rest of the season.

At Portman Road, they are without a victory in their last six drawing three of these and losing three.  They have blanked in five of their last six in front of their own fans and have hit just four in their last nine.

Just three of the 15 previous fixtures Ipswich have played in the Championship have gone over 2.5 goals.  Four of their last seven and five of their last ten meetings with Barnsley have ended 1-1.

 

Ipswich Town Team News

Dominic Iorfa (thigh), Tom Adeyemi, Teddy Bishop (both hamstring) and Dean Gerken (hip) are doubts.  David McGoldrick (groin), Joe Garner, Emyr Huws and Andre Dozzell (all knee) are unlikely to feature again this season.

Barnsley Preview

Four points from their last two games has kept the Tykes alive at the bottom and they now sit in 22nd.  They do though have a match in hand which if they win will move them back above Bolton and out of the bottom three.

Away from Oakwell, they have taken four points from their last four which includes a victory at Birmingham, a draw at Hull and defeats to Cardiff and Middlesbrough.  The Yorkshire outfit have netted in each of their last nine on the road.

Six of the last seven and eight of the last ten Barnsley have played in the Championship have seen both teams find the back of the net.  Oliver McBurnie has netted seven times in his last ten domestic appearances.

 

Barnsley Team News

Mamadou Thiam (unknown) and Matt Mills (ankle) are doubts. Nick Townsend (hand) has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.
