Recovering Ipswich too strong for bad travellers Shrewsbury

Both Ipswich and Shrewsbury were expected to compete at differing ends of the League One table, but after 10 and 11 games respectively, just three places and two points separates them in the bottom half of the table.

Ipswich’s spending spree this summer has led to their squad seeming disjointed at times, but they seem to have steadied the ship after a poor start. The Tractor Boys have taken seven points from their last four games, including a 6-0 win over Doncaster, and put in an impressive display midweek in the Football League Trophy, beating Gillingham 2-0.

Paul Cook’s side have not struggled to find the net this season, with their 19 goals only bettered by three clubs. Defensively though they have struggled, with again only three clubs conceding more than their 18.

Their opponents in Saturday’s matchup, Shrewsbury, have suffered on the road this season. Steve Cotterill’s men have taken just one point from five away games and rank as the second-lowest scorers in the division, with just eight goals in 11 games.

Ipswich’s revival may be too late for a title charge, but their attacking talents mean that we predict that they should be too strong for Shrewsbury here.

Goal shy Shrews set to struggle once more

Shrewsbury’s record of only one point from five League One away games has not been helped by their poor goalscoring form. In fact, the Shrews have scored just twice in their five games away from New Meadow. Steve Cotterill’s men were in the bottom five for goals scored last season and don’t seem to have improved much at all in that regard.

Top scorer with eight from last season, Shaun Whalley, is yet to find the net this campaign and the arrival of Sam Cosgrove from Birmingham City hasn’t improved matters much, the forward has found the net twice so far.

Ipswich’s defensive displays haven’t inspired much confidence in the early parts of the season, but they have conceded just three times in their last five games in all competitions and the correct score prediction for this game is a comfortable 3-0 win for the Tractor Boys.
