      Tip Reasoning

      Both sides have 10 points from 4 games but it is definitely Ipswich who have been more impressive. Had they not conceded twice in injury time at Brentford to throw away a 2-0 lead on the opening day they would have six wins out of six this season which has included two Capital One Cup wins, which have earned them a 3rd round trip to Old Trafford.

      They could be going there for a Premier League game next term if their early season form is anything to go by. All the sides they have played have made otherwise decent starts so their position is no fluke and they will carry a lot of momentum and confidence into this game and will be eager to add 3 more points to their tally ahead of the international break, which they’ll be sorry to see.

      The same could be said for Chris Hughton’s Brighton but they’d be delighted with a draw here and being the away side are more likely to opt for a cautious approach which could backfire against an Ipswich side that have looked quite creative.

      All of Brighton’s wins were by 1 goal but they could only draw their last away game at Huddersfield and a much changed Albion side was knocked out of the Capital One Cup by League One Walsall in midweek.

      Both sides could be accused of being in false positions at such an early stage in the season but it is certainly harder to see Brighton staying there. Ipswich proved they were a good side by making the play-offs last season and have a little more quality in their side than Brighton, who struggled badly in 2014-15 and despite their positive start are still something of a work in progress under Chris Hughton.

      Therefore Ipswich look like the most likely winners here and are good value at 11/10 to dish out a little reality check to Brighton. The Seagulls don’t create an enormous amount of chances and could find it hard to break a solid Town defense here.

      The likes of Freddie Sears, Ryan Fraser and David McGoldrick have all started well in front of goal and a repeat of Ipswich’s 2-0 win at home to Burnley earlier in the month could be on the cards here at 17/2.
