      After back to back defeats, Ipswich remain rooted to the bottom of the table. Their hopes of beating the drop have faded. Paul Lambert wants to boost their hopes of survival, but they meet a Millwall side who have managed to claim back to back victories. They’ve made a real push to stay in the second tier, but can they make the most of this trip to the league’s bottom side?

      The hosts have had their momentum dented after losing at QPR and Middlesbrough over Christmas. While they’ve had their issues on the road this season, things have changed since Paul Lambert replaced Paul Hurst. The Scottish manager has made an impression after finally grabbing a home win for the Tractor Boys. However, he still has a massive battle in order to keep them in the division.

      Millwall are in danger of going down to League One, just three points above the bottom three. They’re only narrowly clear of Rotherham, thanks to wins over Reading and Nottingham Forest. Those victories have lifted them clear, but they are hugely reliant on their home form. They’ve picked up just 12% of their points so far on the road, so it’s odd to see them being made out as favourites to take the points when they meet on Tuesday.

      The visitors have averaged just 0.25 points per game on the road, losing nine times on the road. They’ve lost five of their last six games, while three of their last four visits to this stadium have ended in defeat. The hosts have started to turn things around at their own ground, after beating Wigan 1-0. They followed that up in their last home game with a point against fourth-placed Sheffield United. They’ve got a chance to build on that result when they host the visitors, who have the league’s worst away record.

      We’re going with Ipswich to take the win and climb towards safety with a victory here. They should make the most of the visitors’ poor away form, especially having boosted their form at Portman Road. With time running out, the Tractor Boys need to turn their campaign around with a vital three points. Despite the form of the pair, Ipswich are a huge price to edge this relegation clash. We’re backing them to grab a victory, while we’re going for a narrow 1-0 win for Paul Lambert’s men – who have lost to nil in 42% of their trips.
