League One Tuesday match predictions: Ipswich to pile misery on Burton
There is a full schedule of League One fixtures on Tuesday evening, including the clash at the Pirelli Stadium between Burton and Ipswich.
Burton vs Ipswich (Tuesday, 7.45pm)
Ipswich are top of League One after taking seven points from three games and will be looking to cement the position when taking on winless Burton at the Pirelli Stadium.
Burton picked up their first point of the season in a 4-4 draw at Accrington on Saturday but it was a bitter-sweet moment because they were 3-0 ahead after 50 minutes.
Ipswich struggled on their travels towards the end of last season, failing to win any of their final four away games, but they were 2-1 victors at Forest Green 10 days ago.
Burton have continued their poor form from the end of last season. The Brewers have won just two of their last 18 matches and have conceded at least two goals in each of their last six fixtures.
Ipswich have been living up to their status as one of the fancied sides in League One and they can make it 10 points from a possible 12 by beating Burton in Staffordshire.
The Tractor Boys were convincing 3-0 winners at home to MK Dons on Saturday and they have an excellent recent record against Burton, winning five of the last six meetings.
Burton wasted a glorious opportunity at Accrington on Saturday, forging three-nil ahead and drawing 4-4.
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's side look like a team short on confidence and quality and their dreadful start to the season is likely to continue.
Peterborough vs Sheffield Wednesday (Tuesday, 7.45pm)
Second-placed Sheffield Wednesday overcame a potential promotion rival on Saturday — winning 1-0 at home to Charlton — and they will be looking to do likewise when facing Peterborough at London Road.
The Posh won their opening two games, but they were well beaten on their weekend 2-0 reverse at Plymouth.
Sheffield Wednesday are a tough side to beat in League One, losing just one of their last 14 league fixtures.
Few third-tier teams are more attack-minded than Peterborough, who have netted three goals or more in three of their last four league games.
Peterborough dealt with Cheltenham and Morecambe, taking six points from their first two games, but they struggled in Saturday's loss at Plymouth and could be exposed by Sheffield Wednesday.
Grant McCann showed his dissatisfaction at the weekend, making four half-time substitutions, but his players failed to respond.
The Owls were workmanlike in their narrow success over Charlton, but they have the winning habit and could pick up another three points.
Fleetwood vs Cheltenham (Tuesday, 7.45pm)
Fleetwood narrowly escaped the League One drop last season but they have taken four points from a possible nine and are looking to extend their advantage over struggling Cheltenham, who are second bottom after losses in each of their three games.
Fleetwood were 2-1 winners at home to Plymouth in their last home league game but they had previously gone 10 home matches without securing maximum points.
Cheltenham have lost their last four matches, which is their longest losing sequence in 10 months.
Cheltenham's squad is not too different to the group which finished mid-table last season and they can emerge from an early-season slump by avoiding defeat at Fleetwood.
The Robins are likely to improve and they can take advantage of a Fleetwood side weakened by a suspension for influential attacker Paddy Lane.
