Our football match prediction:
After failing to upset Fulham at Craven Cottage, Ipswich Town will be looking to return to winning ways in the Championship when they face Burton Albion at Pirelli Stadium. The Tractor Boys are sitting in the danger zone ahead of the trip to Burton and, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from Friday’s football game. Mick McCarthy’s men scored exactly one goal in each of their last seven away fixtures in the league and we would not be surprised if they find the net in the Pirelli Stadium clash. The Brewers, on the other hand, played out a 1-1 draw with Aston Villa at the weekend and they are five points clear of bottom three at the moment. Burton Albion suffered only one loss in previous six home games in the Championship and we would not be surprised if they share the spoils with Ipswich Town on Friday evening.
Highlighted Player (John McLaughin):
John McLaughlin is a goalkeeper who plays for Burton Albion. The 188-cm-tall shoot-stopper played for non-League sides Harrogate Railway Athletic and Harrogate Town in the past, but in 2008 he joined Bradford City. After spending six years at Valley Parade, McLaughlin signed a contract with Burton Albion and he has been playing for the Pirelli Stadium outfit ever since. John McLaughlin made 45 appearances for Burton Albion in both 2014/2015 and 2015/2016 seasons and he has established his self as the team’s first-choice goalkeeper. He was producing scintillating displays for Burton in the 2015/2016 League One campaign and, no doubt, he helped the team secure promotion to the Championship. John McLaughlin was born on 9 September, 1987 in Edinburgh, but he has yet to make his debut for the Scotland national team. Speaking of his honours, the goalkeeper won the Football League Two play-offs with Bradford City in the 2012/2013 season.
Highlighted Team (Ipswich Town):
Ipswich Town are an English football club that was formed in 1878. Portman Road has been the home ground of Ipswich Town since 1894 and the capacity of the venue, which was expanded in 2002, is 30,311. The Tractor Boys compete in the Championship, but they used to play in the English Premier League in the past as well. Ipswich Town last appeared in the elite division in the 2001/2002 season. Ipswich won the FA Cup in 1978, with the team beating Arsenal (1-0) in the title game. However, the club’s biggest success came in 1981 when they outplayed AZ Alkmaar in the UEFA Cup final. It has to be noted that the Tractor Boys have yet to suffer a loss at home ground in the European competitions. Norwich City are regarded as Ipswich Town’s bitterest rivals and it is well known that the two sides take on each other in the East Anglian derby.
