Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on Portman Road when Ipswich Town and Peterborough United face each other in the League One derby. Following back-to-back wins over Tranmere Rovers and Lincoln City, Ipswich Town suffered a 1-0 loss to Rotherham United in their last league match. The Tractor Boys aim to get back on course as soon as possible, and we predict that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football game against the fellow promotion-chasing side.
The Posh, on the other hand, are on a three-game winning run in the League Two, with the team beating the likes of Wycombe Wanderers, Rotherham United and Accrington Stanley in the previous three league fixtures. Anyhow, both teams to score betting option should be considered as both sides are likely to go for a win in Saturday’s derby at Portman Road.
Highlighted Player (Emyr Huws):
Llanelli-born Welsh midfielder Emyr Huws made his first football steps at Swansea City in 2004, before getting snapped by Manchester City five years later. Huws made a single appearance for the Citizens during his two-year stay with the first team whereas different loan spells – to Northampton Town, Birmingham City and Wigan Athletic failed to improve his status at the Etihad.
Long earmarked as a future star, Emyr Huws is still seen as a youngster with a genuine chance of making the grade even though numbers are not here to support such claim. Huws is a holding midfielder by trade, a player who likes to play deep and dictate the play from behind. His incisive passing make him a genuine asset and it was during his season-long spell at Huddersfield Town in 2015/16 that Wales international once again hit the spotlight.
He left Wigan in 2016 and then left for Ipswich the year after. Having gone through all ranks for Wales, Emyr Huws was given his senior debut in 2014.
Highlighted Team (Peterborough):
Founded in 1934, Peterborough United are a professional club that competes in the League One. The Posh play their home games at London Road Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 15,314. Peterborough’s home colour is blue, whilst the colour of their away kit is blue. The Posh have the third kit as well where yellow and black are the dominant colours.
Peterborough United’s biggest success came in the 1964/1965 when the club booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals. Chelsea, though, proved to be a big catch for the Posh, beating them 5-1 in London. It has to be noted that Peterborough United made it to the Football League Cup semis in the 1965/1966 season, with the team losing to WBA in the two-legged tie.
The likes of Cambridge United and Northampton Town are considered the club’s main rivals. The Posh have built a rivalry with Huddersfield Town, with fans seeing MK Dons as rivals as well.
