Live on Skysports 2: Sat 12.45: Ipswich are 7/4 () to beat high-flying Swansea and build on the midweek cup success.
With a raft of injuries and some very poor league form, 4 straight losses, you would be excused for thinking Ipswich don’t really stand a chance against Swansea. The visitors are also rated as a 7/4 chance (bet365), slightly belying their lofty 3rd position in the league.
Roy Keane’s Tractor Men have further lost Damien Delaney (suspension) and Connor Wickham (injury) but the motivational power of a unlikely cup win midweek cannot be underestimated. Keane’s under studies played out of their skins to beat West Brom and with largely the same team turning out again, you would fancy their spirit here.
After drawing away Doncaster and losing to Pompey, the Swans are looking a little fragile. They have not scored more than 1 goal for 5 games and the best they could do here is force a draw, 12/5 at Stan James.
There is a distinct possibility that both teams can find the back of the net at Portman Road, 10/11 at William Hill, while Ipswich at 10/11 (Betfred) in the draw no bet market would seem safe.
