Tip Reasoning

  • Portsmouth are unbeaten in their last seven
  • Both teams have scored in four of Portsmouth’s last five matches
  • Ipswich have only beaten one team in League One’s current top eight this season

Cowley’s men have lift-off

Danny Cowley may finally have figured things out at Portsmouth. Pompey are unbeaten in their last seven matches, winning six and it was an aptly timed return to form. 19 points from the last 21 on offer sees Portsmouth sit just five points off the play-offs. The fans seem to be back on side now and there is a good feel around the club again, there’s no reason why they can’t bridge the five-point gap and make the play-offs this year, having missed out on on the top six by just two points last season.

Ipswich have a dreadful record against top 8 teams

Taken on face value, Kieran McKenna is doing a sterling job at Ipswich. Ipswich are unbeaten in eight and have only lost two of the 14 games McKenna has taken charge of as boss. In truth, they haven’t played anyone of note recently and have been picking up points against some of the league’s weaker sides. The average position of Ipswich’s last five opponents is 17.4.  Ipswich’s record against teams in the top eight this season leaves a lot to be desired and they look far too short for this one against a bang in form Portsmouth side. Ipswich only have one victory to their name against sides who currently occupy top eight spots in the League One table.

Portsmouth are bang in form and look overpriced to me here. Ipswich, who are currently 9th, are likely to face a much tougher test than what they have come up against recently and may struggle against a Portsmouth side who will arrive at Portman Road full of confidence. Portsmouth to win and both teams to score in the match will be the main selection here – both teams have scored in four of Portsmouth’s last five matches. For the correct score prediction, I will chance a 2-1 away win.
