Tip Reasoning

  • Ipswich are under the caretaker charge of John McGreal after Paul Cook’s sacking on Saturday.
  • Charlton have won four of their last five home games, including a 2-0 win over then-leaders Plymouth.
  • Ipswich have lost five of nine League One away games this season.

More blues in store for managerless Ipswich 

Ipswich’s board will be looking for a reaction against Charlton this week after sacking Paul Cook in the wake of Saturday’s 0-0 FA Cup second round draw with Barrow.

But it will be no easy task for incoming caretaker John McGreal, who was only brought in as Under-23 coach a few days ago, to galvanise a group of players who were largely brought in by Cook in the summer. Results haven’t lived up to expectations in Suffolk, but this move may not have the consequences the board hoped for unless their next permanent appointment is made swiftly and intelligently.

Ipswich’s away form has been so up and down, it’s hard to get a handle on what they could do here – but Charlton have proven tough to beat at home since Nigel Adkins’ dismissal.

Jackson has tightened Addicks’ defence

Johnnie Jackson has overseen four wins and a draw from his five games in charge of the Addicks at The Valley and it’s hard to see past them in this situation. A brilliant home win over then-leaders Plymouth followed a creditable draw with current table-toppers Rotherham, so they can certainly mix it with the very best in the division.

They avoided a cup banana skin at Gateshead on Friday with relative ease and have had an extra day to prepare for this game. Hence, we’re behind the hosts to pick up three points this week and feel a clean sheet could be on the cards for them too, given the Addicks have conceded just four in seven league games since Jackson took the reins.

Our correct score prediction is 2-0 to the hosts because Ipswich have conceded exactly two goals in six of their nine league road trips.
