Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Wycombe and Ipswich go head to head at Adams Park in what is expected to be a close League One encounter. The Chairboys are on a quest to return to the Championship, and their current form is surely giving fans a reason for optimism. Wycombe played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Fleetwood in their last league match, and given their perfect home record in the 2021/2022 League One campaign, home win should be considered. Garath McCleary should be the only absentee in the home team.
The Tractor Boys, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Plymouth. Ipswich Town, though, have already suffered four defeats on the road in the new League One season, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team ahead of the trip to High Wycombe.
Highlighted Player (Jason McCarthy):
Jason McCarthy is a product of the famous Southampton youth academy. McCarthy started his youth career in his hometown club back in 2002 and he made his senior debut with the Saints in the Premier League on December 26, 2014, coming as a substitute for Nathaniel Clyne in a 3-1 away victory at Crystal Palace.
After spending a couple of seasons on loan at Wycombe Wanderers and Walsall, the English defender signed a three-year deal with Barnsley in the summer of 2017 for an undisclosed fee. Jason McCarthy was struggling to secure a first-team football at the Oakwell stadium outfit and, as a result, he returned to Wycombe Wanderers on August 9, 2018, penning a three-year contract with the League One side.
His preferred foot is right, his main position centre-back, but he is used as a right-back as well. Jason McCarthy was born in Southampton on November 7, 1995.
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.
