Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Whaddon Road will host Tuesday’s football game between Cheltenham Town and Ipswich Town. The Robins kicked off the new League One campaign with a 1-1 draw with Crewe, but the team then experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-1 loss to Wycombe. Cheltenham Town are eager to record their first win of the season, but the midweek game will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts.
Head coach Michael Duff should opt to make changes to the starting XI, with all Perry, Thomas, and Vassell pushing for a start. The Tractor Boys, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Burton Albion. Since Ipswich Town are likely to go for a win in the midweek clash as well, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score.
Highlighted Player (Chriss Hussey):
Born in Hammersmith, England, Christopher Hussey is an experienced defender who plays for Cheltenham Town in the League Two. After spending his youth career at the likes of Woking and AFC Wimbledon, Hussey continued playing for the Dons at senior level.
He played for a number of English clubs in the past, but, no doubt, the most notable one is Sheffield United. Chris Hussey made seven appearances for the Blades in the League One, but nowadays he is a League Two player. His main position is left-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a left midfielder as well.
It has to be noted that he was called up for the England C team as a standby. Christopher Hussey made his Cheltenham Town debut on August 21, 2018 in a 1-1 draw with Macclesfield Town. He scored his first goal with the Robins in a 4-2 loss to Mansfield Town.
Highlighted Team (Ipswich):
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.
