Ipswich – West Brom Predictions and Preview
- The wheels look to be coming off for Ipswich Town’s automatic promotion charge as they suffered yet another setback with a 3-2 defeat at Preston last weekend. Ipswich boss Kieran McKenna maintained that his side deserved something from the game, but the reality is that a failure to win seven of the last eight league games has seen their once comfortable gap in the top two completely evaporate, as they finished two points short of those places at the end of the last round (D5, L2).
- It’s not all doom and gloom for the Tractor Boys who do at least have a 15-point buffer to seventh, yet their form must improve quickly to fend off the chasing pack. Playing at Portman Road should help in that regard as Ipswich have lost just one home league game all season (W10, D3), despite keeping one of the league’s lowest home clean sheet tallies of just three (21%).
- Looming large behind Ipswich are West Bromwich Albion, who sit one place but 11 points behind their hosts, a large buffer which they can take a chunk out of here. Andi Weimann was the hero as West Brom extended their trend of alternating league wins and defeats to five games with a 1-0 win over Birmingham (W3, L2), which was the cherry on the cake after a “demanding, challenging week,” according to Baggies boss Carlos Corberán.
- Things haven’t been so smooth on the road for West Brom, who travel here on the back of three straight travelling defeats ‘to nil’. Not since a six-game run in 2021/22 have the away side posted four straight scoreless Championship road trips, and they’d hope to avoid such a fate here, as they are unbeaten and have scored in each of the last five league meetings with Ipswich (W3, D2).
- Players to watch: Kieffer Moore’s two late strikes weren’t enough to inspire an Ipswich comeback last time out, but he did assist the only goal of the game in his sole Championship victory against WBA. Weimann’s late winner at the weekend put an end to West Brom’s shocking run of 292 minutes without a goal, and three of the auspicious Austrian’s last four goals were decisive in victory.
- Hot stat: West Brom are unbeaten in five of their nine league games as pre-match betting outsiders this season (W3, D2, L4).
