Ipswich Town vs Fleetwood Town Match Analysis & Prediction
02/12/2022 10:45 pm
Ipswich Town and Fleetwood Town go head to head at Portman Road on Friday as two sides heading in opposite directions, with the hosts hoping to build on a five-game League One unbeaten run and the visitors winless in three straight.
The Tractor Boys are currently in second place in the League One table on 41 points, two points behind first-placed Plymouth Argyle, and 11 above sixth-placed Barnsley, the last team just inside the playoff spots.
Kieran McKenna’s side enter the contest off the back of a 2-0 victory over Exeter City in the last League One match at St James Park, extending their unbeaten run to five, with Freddie Ladapo and Marcus Harness getting their names on the scoresheet.
Ipswich Town have recorded five wins, three draws and just one defeat this season in nine League One matches at Portman Road, which will provide confidence when facing a Fleetwood Town side who have found it difficult to claim maximum points away from home so far this season.
The Tractor Boys have got the better of Fleetwood Town of late with wins in three straight encounters, dating to May 2021. Ipswich have outscored the Cod Army 7-2 during their winning run.
Meanwhile, Fleetwood Town suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Bolton Wanderers at Highbury Stadium in their last league match to end a four-game unbeaten run, leaving them in 17th place on 22 points, eight points above the relegation zone.
In league matches on the road this season, the Cod Army have recorded two wins, five draws and two defeats, and they find themselves on a four-game away winless run, having failed to win on their travels since October 4 against Burton Albion.
They have won one, drawn three and lost two of their last six league matches.
