Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Sunday’s football game between Plymouth and Ipswich Town will bring down the curtain on day 11 of the new League One campaign. The Pilgrims are eyeing their seventh win of the process, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the Tractor Boys. Keep in mind, though, that defender Brendan Galloway misses the match through suspension. The visiting side, on the other hand, aim to retain top position in the standings, but beating Plymouth on the road is easier said than done.
A close encounter is on the horizon, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Midfielder Dominic Ball could play some part in Saturday’s clash after overcoming his injury, while Ireland defender Corrie Ndaba remains in the treatment room. In their last meeting at the venue Plymouth defeated Ipswich 2-1, but we are tempted to put our money on draw this time out.
