Our football match prediction:
Saturday’s football game at Portman Road Stadium pits together Ipswich Town and Brentford. The Tractor Boys shared the spoils with their rivals in each of their last three league fixtures and you should know that they are on a five-match unbeaten run in the Championship. Ipswich Town are only one point clear of their next opponents, meaning that a close encounter is on the cards. The Bees, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 3-2 loss to Reading as they outplayed Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough Stadium on day 28 and, to make things even better for the fans, the team recorded a hard-fought win over Rotherham United at the weekend. It has to be noted, though, that they scored two goals in the dying minutes of the match. Anyhow, Brentford have found their best form of late and we predict that they will emerge triumphant in the Portman Road Stadium clash.
Highlighted Player (David McGoldrick):
David McGoldrick is an Irish international who was born in Nottingham, England on 29 November, 1987. McGoldrick was eligible to play for both England and Republic of Ireland and he decided to play for the Irish national team. The striker made his Ireland debut on 18 November, 2014, in a 4-1 win over USA and it has to be noted that he provided assists for Robbie Brady and Anthony Pilkington. McGoldrick began his senior career at Nots County and he played for the likes of Northampton, Bournemouth, Port Vale, Nottingham Forest, Sheffield Wednesday and Coventry City in the past as well. The Irish attacker he joined Ipswich Town on loan until the end of the 2012/2013 campaign and he signed a permanent deal with the club in July 2013. David McGoldrick scored 14 goals in 31 appearances for the Tractor Boys in the 2013/2014 Championship campaign and that is considered his most successful season. You should have in mind that his Ipswich teammates Daryl Murphy and Stephen Hunt backed David for his first-ever Ireland call-up.
Highlighted Team (Brentford):
Based in London, Brentford compete in the Championship and they were founded in 1898. Griffin Park has been the home ground of the club since 1904 and the capacity of the venue is 12,300. The Bees have yet to play in the Premier League and it has to be noted that they made it to the FA Cup sixth round on four occasions (1937/1938, 1945/1946,1948/1949, 1988/1989). Brentford played in the League Cup round 4 in the 1982/1983 and 2010/2011 season and that is the club’s biggest success in the competition. Brentford’s main rivals are Fulham and Queens Park Rangers and they take on each other in the West London Derby. The rivalry with the Cottagers is probably the biggest and you should bear in mind that the clashes between the two teams have always been marred by crowd violence. The colour of Brenftord’s shirts is red and white and they wear black shorts.
