Ipswich will face West Brom on Friday, seeking a second win since the start of the season. ‘The Blues’ are yet to win at home in ten matches and are rock bottom in the league. The troubles for shots are mainly due to problems in the final phase. Ipswich is the second worst attacking side at Championship with 14 goals scored in 17 matches.
Their opponents on Friday, West Brom, are on the other side of the coin. ‘The Throstles’ stand on fifth place with 28 points. Daron Moore transformed his side into an attacking team. West Brom have scored 37 goals since the start of the season, although they concede a lot due to their aggressive style of play. Away from home, ‘The Albion’ have problems in defence and are yet to keep a clean sheet.
West Brom were beaten on their previous two away fixtures, but I expect that Friday the story won’t be the same. Currently, Ipswich doesn’t have the quality to fight against the top teams in the Championship. ‘The Blues’ avoided defeat in the previous two rounds, but both of the draws were against sides from the bottom half of the table. The odds for the visitors are superb and I will back West Brom to Win, with West Brom 2-1 Correct Score.
