Bitesize Prediction: Ipswich vs Bristol City – 05/03/24

Competition: Championship

Market: Ipswich win

Odds: 4/7 @ 1xBet

Desperate to extend their buffer in the automatic promotion spots, Ipswich will welcome Bristol City to Portman Road on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Ipswich might have opened the New Year in the midst of a public Championship struggle, Kieran McKenna’s men have come roaring back in some style. Although the Blues might have only made their Championship return this season, they have continued to receive a string of plaudits and fans around Portman Road are enjoying another fairytale. Last seen over the weekend securing a routine 2-0 victory away at Plymouth, the former Manchester United coach has seen his squad win all of their previous five Championship appearances on the bounce. Skyrocketing their way back into the automatic promotion spots, there is no doubt that Ipswich will be looking to make another statement here. With their recent purple patch underlined by a 4-0 romp away at Millwall on February 14th, Tuesday’s hosts have certainly gained a real reputation for their free-scoring performances in the final third. In fact, along with a 4-3 victory against Rotherham last month, McKenna’s side have bagged 15 goals on their five-match winning run.

As for the visitors, putting in another worrying performance over the weekend as they fell to a 1-0 loss at home against Cardiff, Bristol City have continued to struggle with their consistency this season. Still battling it out in the bottom-half of the table and almost sat in Championship limbo, Liam Manning’s men will certainly be bracing themselves for a heavyweight challenge here. Including a shock 1-0 defeat at the hands of QPR last month, the Robins have lost all of their previous three Championship appearances by an aggregate score of 4-1. Likewise, along with suffering another 1-0 loss when they welcomed Ipswich to Ashton Gate for their reverse meeting back on October 25th, Bristol City have also gained a reputation for their extended struggles on the road. Along with crashing out of the FA Cup following penalties heartbreak against Nottingham Forest, Tuesday’s guests have won just one of their previous eight away fixtures across all competitions – a run that stems all the way back to Boxing Day.
