Ipswich v Southampton predictions: Hosts to press home advantage

Ipswich have been rock solid at home this season, with a record of 14 wins, four draws and a defeat from their 19 appearances at Portman Road.

Southampton have been strong too this season and currently sit ten points behind these league leading opponents with two games in hand.

The Saints need to turn around their recent drop off in form however, as they have lost four of their last eight games in all competitions.

Team news

Wes Burns and George Hirst are expected to miss out for Ipswich but they will be able to call upon the services of Lewis Travis, who had to miss their last game against Blackburn as they are his parent club.

No team has scored more Championship goals this season than the Tractor Boys’ 81 in 39 games and they have won and both teams have scored in four of their last six outings.

Southampton have kept only one clean sheet in their last nine matches and that could leave them vulnerable against the top scorers in the division.
