Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Saturday’s football match at Highbury Stadium pits together Fleetwood Town and Ipswich Town. The Fishermen head into the game following back-to-back wins over Rochdale and Shrewsbury and we predict that they will stick to their attacking style of play against the Tractor Boys. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be English midfielder Josh Morris, who scored his 4th goal of the season in the 3-0 crushing of the Shrews.
Ipswich Town, on the other hand, continue to impress in the 2019/2020 League One season and it is more than obvious that they are determined to return to the Championship. A real football festival is on the cards at Highbury Stadium and given the attacking potential of the two teams, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. However, given the experience of the Tractor Boys, away win should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Conor McAleny):
Conor McAleny is a product of Everton youth academy, joining the club from Merseyside in 2003 at the age of 11. Despite the fact that his main position is centre-forward, McAleny is used as both second striker and left winger as well. McAleny did spend his youth career at Goodison Park, but it has to be noted that he made no more than two appearances for the Toffees at senior level.
The English attacker, who was born in Whiston on August 12, 1992, made his first-team debut in a 1-0 Premier League loss to Arsenal on December, 2011. Conor McAleny played for the likes of Scunthorpe United, Brentford, Cardiff City, Charlton Athletic, Wigan Athletic and Oxford United before signing a deal with Fleetwood Town.
The right-footed striker spent the second half of the 2018/2019 season on loan at Kilmarnock, scoring 3 goals in 11 appearances for the club in the Scottish Premier League.
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.
