Our prediction for this League 1 match:
After playing out a goalless draw with Oxford United, Ipswich Town will be looking to retain their spot in top six when they take on Plymouth in yet another away game. The Tractor Boys failed to find the net in the previous three league fixtures, but it has to be noted that boss Paul Lambert has been having injury worries of late. The good news for the visitors is that Jon Nolan has overcome his injury, but the likes of Kane Vincent-Young, James Wilson, Toto Nsiala, Teddy Bishop, Cole Skuse, Flynn Downes, Emyr Huws, Gwion Edwards, Freddie Sears, James Norwood, and Tristan Nydam remain in the recovery room.
To make things even worse for the visitors, Brett McGavin missed the midweek clash through illness. Plymouth experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Rochdale, but they should take advantage of the fact that Ipswich head into Saturday’s clash with a severely-weakened squad.
Highlighted Player (Scott Wootton):
After spending his youth career at English giants Liverpool and Manchester United, Scott Wootton played for the likes of Tranmere Rovers, Peterborough United, and Nottingham Forest on loan at senior level. In the summer of 2013, the defender signed a three-year deal with Leeds United.
Scott Wootton made 66 appearances for the Whites in the league before moving to Rotherham United on loan. In August 2016, the English footballer joined League 1 club Milton Keynes Dons, signing a two-year deal with the Stadium MK outfit. Nowadays, Scott Wootton plays for Plymouth Argyle in the League Two, where he wears the number 5 jersey.
Scott Wootton’s primary position is a centre-back, but he is capable of producing fine performances at right-back as well. The 188-cm tall defender, whose preferred foot is right, has three caps for the England U17 team. Scott Wootton was born in Birkenhead, England, on September 12, 1991.
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.
