      Tip Reasoning

      The East Anglian side haven’t won any of their last 4 games with their last win coming at Leeds, over a month ago. Even that game followed on from a 5-1 thrashing at Reading so they don’t come into this game in the best of form.

      There are usually goals when Ipswich are involved and at home to one of the weaker sides in the division, we should see a very positive outlook form Mick McCarthy’s side. There has been an average of 3.2 goals per game in Championship fixtures involving Ipswich this season with 15 goals going in at the right end and 17 at the wrong end as far as they are concerned.

      All of their games at Portman Road have had at least 2 goals in them and the same can be said of Huddersfield’s away record. The visitors picked up back-to-back wins in September, beating Charlton 2-1 and Bolton 4-1 to move themselves out of the drop-zone but have only taken 1 point from their 2 matches since then, the last of which was a 3-0 loss at Wolves.

      They are a bit of hit and miss side and on their day they can possess a real threat going forward but it is rare that they are entirely convincing at the back and that combination combined with Ipswich’s tendency for high-scoring games suggests that it is worth backing there to be over 2.5 goals in this game at 17/20.

      That was something that occurred in both meetings between the sides last year with the Terriers drawing 2-2 at Portman Road and winning 2-1 back in Yorkshire.

      Ipswich finished 10 places and 23 points better off than Huddersfield though and still possess the stronger squad. They will have probably been grateful for the international break and a chance to regroup after much of the good early work they did this season has been undone by some sloppy displays.

      They don’t keep many clean sheets so a Huddersfield goal is likely here but ths hosts should be able to edge it and are decent value to win 2-1 at 15/2.
