Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Ipswich Town will be looking to extend their winning run to four games when they take on Accrington on Tuesday evening. The Tractor Boys have been scoring goals for fun of late, and they must be high on spirits following a 4-0 win over Burton. A man to watch in the home team will be Conor Chaplin, who impressed in the last league match, while all Panutche Camara, Dominic Ball, Tyreece John-Jules, and Lee Evans are sidelined with injuries, while Leif Davis is a major doubt.
The Accy Stanley, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late, but their League One status is still in great danger. Since Accrington are on a six-game winless run on the road, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Ipswich’s party at Portman Road. All Ryan Astley, Ethan Hamilton, David Morgan, Michael Nottingham, Joe Pritchard, Liam Coyle, and Jay Rich-Baghuelou are injured for the away team, while Tommy Leigh serves the last of his three-game ban.
