Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Burton Albion and Ipswich Town go head to head in a highly-anticipated League One game at Pirelli Stadium. The Brewers did well to beat Shrewsbury Town on the road in the opening match of the season, with veteran defender John Brayford scoring the only goal of the game. It has to be noted, though, that midfielder Jacob Maddox has joined attackers Kane Hemmings and Louis Moult in the recovery room.
The Tractor Boys, on the other hand, came from behind to share the spoils with Morecambe in their opener. Macauley Bonne, who scored a late equalizer at the weekend, is pushing for a start, while Aristote Nsiala is likely to miss the game with injury. Janoi Donacien is ready to step up. Anyhow, away win should be considered as the hosts head into the match with a severely-weakened squad.
