Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After dropping two points in a 1-1 draw with Cheltenham Town, Ipswich will look to climb to automatic promotion places when they take on Charlton on Saturday afternoon. The Tractor Boys are eyeing their sixth consecutive home win, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Conor Chaplin, who managed to find the net in each of the last three league fixtures, while Greg Leigh should miss out with injury.
The Red Robins, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-2 win over Burton Albion, but we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Ipswich’s party at Portman Road. The capital club missed out on a spot in the League One playoffs, meaning that a defeat on Matchday 42 should not hurt them too much. Midfielder Jack Payne serves a one-game ban following his sending-off in the last league match.
Highlighted Player (Sam Morsy):
Sam Morsy is a professional footballer who plays for Wigan Athletic in the Championship. His full name is Samy Sayed Morsy and he started his youth career at Wolverhampton Wanderers. During his spell with Wolves he was spotted by Port Vale scouts and in 2008 joined the Vale Park outfit.
The talented midfielder made his debut for the first team on 23 February, 2010 in a 4-0 win over Lincoln City and at the end of the 2009/2010 campaign he was given the Youth Player of the Year award. After playing 71 league games for Port Vale, Sam Morsy joined Chesterfield in July 2013 and on 30 march 2014 he participated in the Football League Trophy final. However, he did not help Chesterfield beat Peterborough United in the title game (1-3).
On 28 January 2016 Morsy signed a two-and- a-half year contract with Wigan Athletic for an undisclosed fee. Sam Morsy was born in Wolverhampton on 10 September, 1991 and he was father is Egyptian.
Highlighted Team (Charlton):
Charlton Athletic are yet another capital club that will compete in the 2019/2020 Championship season. Founded back in 1905, the Red Robins welcome their opponents at the Valley, the stadium which can hold up to 28,111 spectators. Charlton Athletic wear red shirts and white shorts when playing on home soil, whereas black is the dominant colour of their away kit.
Winning of the 1946/1947 FA Cup trophy is considered the club’s biggest success. The Red Robins defeated Burnley 1-0 in the title game, with Chris Duffy scoring the winner for Jimmy Seed’s charges in extra-time.
Fellow capital clubs Crystal Palace and Millwall are regarded as Charlton’s fiercest rivals, whilst Samuel Bartram, who made 579 appearances for the club is one of the most famous footballers who played for the Valley outfit. The club based in London will compete in the English second tier in the 2019/2020 season following a three-year absence.
