Live on Skysports 2: Sat 17.20: Ipswich, 2/1 with Betfred, look to snap a six-match losing sequence against Sven Goran Eriksson’s Leicester.
The canny Swede has presided over a major improvement in the Foxes’ form since he took the reigns at the Walkers Stadium in early October, his side having won six and drawn four of his dozen fixtures in charge. Subsequently Eriksson’s side are Totesport’s 7/5 favourites to inflict more misery on their hapless hosts but we think it’s about time Ipswich turned things around.
The defeat to rock-bottom Preston could be a watershed for Keane’s troops, who have now lost nine out of eleven and with the players rallying round this week, defending their under-fire boss and shouldering the blame for the run of results, expect them to come out fighting here.
Couple this with the fact that the Foxes have lost seven from ten on the road, despite their improvement under new management and Town look overpriced at 2/1 with Betfred.
