Swansea City vs Ipswich Town Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two teams at opposite ends of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Swansea stretched their unbeaten run to three in midweek as they battled out a point at Wigan in a goalless draw. The result was a fair reflection of the fixture in which it was hard to split the pair.

Ipswich are still seeking that elusive first victory of the season and they went down on Tuesday night 2-0 at home to Middlesbrough. Town can have few complaints about the result as the Teesiders were the better side.

These two were in different divisions last season so you have to go back to the 2010/11 season for their last meeting. For what it is worth the Welsh side are unbeaten in six against the Suffolk outfit.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

I think at the prices Swansea look a good bet as I was expecting them to be shorter. They recently blew away a QPR side who are stronger than Ipswich and so a simple bet on a home win looks the call against a team who have lost four of five on the road.

Connor Roberts was given licence to get forward from wing-back in the last home fixture and in a match with few outstanding goal options he looks a good each-way play to be first goalscorer.

Swansea City Preview

The Swans have won one just one of their last five but they have lost just one with three of them ending in draws. They sit seventh in the Championship table and face a run of six straight against teams outside the top ten.

At the Liberty Stadium, they have suffered just one defeat this season with two victories and two draws from their five. They have kept three clean sheets in front of their own fans and conceded just three times in total.

Eight of the 11 that Swansea have played in the league this season have been level going into the break. 70% of the goals the Welsh outfit have netted have come in the second 45 minutes.

 

Swansea City Team News

Wilfried Bony (cruciate), Joel Asoro (ankle) and Jefferson Montero (thigh) are doubts ahead of this fixture.

Ipswich Town Preview

The Tractor Boys are still seeking that elusive win and the pressure is growing on boss Paul Hurst. They are second bottom of the table and two of their next three are against teams in the top seven.

Away from Portman Road, they have picked up just one point after losing their first four though they did draw recently at Birmingham 2-2. They have conceded exactly two goals in each of their last four on the road.

Ipswich have been behind just four times in their 11 fixtures going into the break and have even been ahead once. Five of the eight goals they have scored this season have come in the first-half.

 

Ipswich Town Team News

Myles Kentlock (knee) is a doubt while Ellis Harrison (ankle), Jon Walters (Achilles), Emyr Huws (knee) and Teddy Bishop (hamstring) are long-term absentees.  Matthew Pennington is available following his suspension.
