- Ipswich have won six of their seven Championship home games this season
- Over 2.5 goals has landed in six of Ipswich’s seven Championship home games this term
- Recommended bet: Ipswich to win and over 2.5 goals
Ipswich have seen their buffer in the Championship automatic promotion spots slashed over the last week, but they will be expecting to get back on track when they return to Portman Road for the first time this month.
They face a Swansea side who have seen mixed results this season, although a return of four points from their last two games will give the travelling fans a hint of confidence as they travel to Suffolk.
Nathan Broadhead remains a doubt for Ipswich after missing their midweek game, while Wes Burns and Lee Evans are both ruled out for the home side.
Charlie Patino is suspended for Swansea and is likely to be replaced by Jay Fulton, while Joshua Key, Nathan Wood, Azeem Abdulai, Joe Allen, Josh Ginnelly, Nathan Ogbeta and Mykola Kukharevych make up a lengthy injury list for the visitors.
Ipswich have won six of their seven Championship home games this season and have scored 22 goals in those seven outings at Portman Road.
Over 2.5 goals has landed in six of Ipswich’s seven Championship home games this term, while it has also landed in two of Swansea’s last three away games in the league.
A midweek draw in Rotherham condemned Ipswich to back-to-back dropped points for the first time this season, but The Tractor Boys will be confident of getting back on track when they return to Portman Road on Saturday.
The hosts’ only league defeat this season came against Leeds back in August and they have won each of their five home assignments since that seven-goal thriller, all while continuing their emphatic form in front of goal.
They have scored a massive 22 goals in seven home outings this season, although their attack-minded play does leave them open at the back, resulting in an average of five-goals-per-game at Portman Road.
Over 2.5 goals has landed in each of their last six at home, while Swansea have taken four points from their last two games and will fancy their chances of getting on the scoresheet.
The Swans have netted in six of their seven away games this season and have notched seven in their last three, winning all three.
It is worth noting that all three of these wins have come against teams placed tenth or lower in the table, though, so they could see their impressive away form ended in a high-scoring reverse.
