Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Fleetwood Town and Ipswich Town take on each other at Highbury Stadium in a postponed League One fixture. The Cod Army have been in a fine form of late, with the team beating all Lincoln, Shrewsbury, and Gillingham, while sharing the spoils with Blackpool in their last league match. Fleetwood look solid at the back, and we are positive that they will rely on their defence in the midweek clash. Joel Coleman should be the only absentee in the home team.
The Tractor Boys aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Plymouth. Ipswich Town are eager to retain their place in top six, but beating the in-form Cod Army on the road is easier said than done. A close game is on the cards, and we believe that the two teams are going to share the spoils on Tuesday evening. The likes of Wilson, Bishop, and Sears are rated doubtful for the match, while Downes is definitely sidelined with injury.
Highlighted Player (Josh Morris):
Josh Morris is a product of Blackburn Rovers football school who plays for Fleetwood Town in the League One. Morris’ main position is left midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both left-back and central midfielder as well.
The English footballer started his senior career at Blackburn Rovers and he played for the likes of Yeovil Town, Rotherham United, Carlisle United and Fleetwood Town on loan before moving to Bradford City in the summer of 2015. Josh Morris, though, found his best form at Scunthorpe United, scoring 35 goals in 107 appearances for the club in the league.
Before the start of the 2018/2019 League One season Morris re-joined Fleetwood Town, signing a two-year contract with the Fishermen. Josh Morris scored his first goal of the season in a 3-1 win over Peterborough United at Weston Homes Stadium. His contract with Fleetwood Town should expire on June 30, 2021.
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.
