Ipswich Town vs. Portsmouth Match Analysis and Prediction

Ipswich and Portsmouth meet at Portman Road on Saturday afternoon with just two points separating the clubs in the League One standings with kickoff at 6 pm.

Supporters of Ipswich Town would have expected their team’s results to improve under new manager Kieran McKenna. The club had collected 30 points from 14 matches under him, the second-best return in the division.

Although some of the teams above them have games in hand, Ipswich has all the momentum. Just one of the goals they’ve conceded during their current eight-match unbeaten streak came during that stretch, and their 2-0 wins over Fleetwood Town and Lincoln City were impressive.

Strike duo Wes Burns and Kayden Jackson have been instrumental in Ipswich’s recent renaissance. Over the past five matches, the pair have scored three goals each to help the Blues move ahead of their upcoming opponents.

Portsmouth FC is perhaps in the stronger position of the two clubs. Danny Cowley’s team have recorded 19 points from a possible 21, scoring as many as 21 goals in the process, and winning their games in hand would take them level on points with fifth-placed Sunderland.

Cowley will tell Portsmouth fans to take it one match at a time, especially when the South-Coast team faces playoff rivals in their next three matches.
