- Swindon have only scored more than one goal in one of their last eight matches.

- Four of Ipswich’s last six fixtures have yielded under 2.5 goals goals.
- Only two teams have scored fewer goals in League One this season than Ipswich.
Tractor Boys to finally end goal drought
A run of six matches without a win has seen Ipswich’s playoff hopes disappear, with a lack of goals proving the Tractor Boys’ Achilles heel, as they have also failed to score during their winless run.
Indeed, Paul Cook’s side have struggled for goals all season, with only Northampton and Bristol Rovers having scored fewer in League One than their total of 41.
Ipswich are at least tight defensively, as they have conceded just 44 goals in their 43 league matches to date, with four of their least six games having seen under 2.5 goals scored.
If the Tractor Boys are to end their goalscoring struggles then a trip to already-relegated Swindon could be exactly what the doctor ordered, as Saturday’s hosts have conceded the most goals in League One this season (84).
The Robins have also kept the fewest clean-sheets in the division, while they have not exactly been prolific at the other end, as they have failed to score more than once in seven of their last eight matches.
Given the lack of goals from both sides of late, our prediction is for under 2.5 to be scored on Saturday.
However, Ipswich will at least be boosted by the return to fitness of top scorer James Norwood, so our overall score prediction is for the Tractor Boys to end their goal drought and edge the match 1-0.
