Ipswich vs Plymouth in EFL League One on Mar 26. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Ipswich vs Plymouth in EFL League One on Mar 26. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

With Kieran McKenna now at the Ipswich controls, the Tractor Boys have seen a marked improvement since his arrival and suddenly a place in the end of season play-offs, is no longer out of the question.

While if they are to finish in the top-six of League One, they may have to overtake Plymouth in the process and with these two sides meeting on Saturday, it should make for an interesting clash at Portman Road.

Under 2.5 Goals

Before trawling the biggest and best betting sites online, I first had a look at the clean sheet stats for both teams and it makes for some fascinating reading before Saturday’s clash at Portman Road.

Because Ipswich have not conceded a goal in their last five home outings and although that sounds impressive, Plymouth have kept a clean sheet in each of their last six outings both home and away.

Which means this could be a rather defensive affair at the weekend and if you want to back me in plumping for a total of under 2.5 goals, you can currently get odds of 4/5 (SportNation) at the time of writing.

Ipswich Form, squad news, opinion

There is no doubt that Ipswich are one of the form teams in League One right now and with a 10-game unbeaten streak currently under their belts, they are finding momentum at just the right time.

Because the beauty of the three EFL leagues, is that a late spurt of form can still land you in the play-offs and after a sluggish start to the campaign, Ipswich have finally found their feet under new management.

Management that comes in the shape of Kieran McKenna and after previously being a part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s backroom staff at Manchester United, a first leadership role was never going to be all that far away.

While it does seem that Manchester United’s loss has been Ipswich’s gain and although the appointment was something of a surprise, it is fair to say that his installation at Portman Road has been an inspired one.

Whether Ipswich can land a play-off spot at the end of next month remains to be seen and one wonders if they have left themselves too much work to do. Then again, with the form that Ipswich are in right now, you would not bet against them either.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the visit of Plymouth, manager Kieran McKenna only has one fitness concern to deal with and that is the continued absence of left-sided midfielder Kyle Edwards.

However, a number of players are walking a disciplinary tightrope and the trio of Janoi Donacien, Lee Evans and Wes Burns are now all one booking away from being handed a one-match ban.

Plymouth Form, squad news, opinion

After an impressive FA Cup run that took Plymouth to Stamford Bridge, the focus for the Pilgrims is now firmly back on league matters and a bid for automatic promotion at the end of the season.

A bid that is picking up steam in recent weeks and with Steven Schumacher’s men having won each of their last six League One outings, they also find themselves as one of the form teams in the division right now.

Form that they will look to continue this weekend and with a number of their promotion rivals having the weekend off because of international call ups, this is an opportunity that Plymouth certainly cannot waste.

Earn a win in East Anglia and it will be three more important points on the board. While failure to earn a maximum haul, may mean that their bid for automatic promotion is foiled once and for all.

There is no doubt that manager Steven Schumacher has cultivated a winning spirit within the Plymouth camp, now he will hope that his players deliver a lucky seventh successive league win on Saturday.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the trip to Ipswich, it is only the long-term absence of Brendan Galloway has to deal with. However, the Plymouth boss will also be aware of potential disciplinary issues and with four players just one booking away from a ban, this is something that Steven Schumacher will have to deal with at the weekend.

History

When it comes to the recent history between Ipswich and Plymouth, their battles have been consigned to League One and with three meetings between the two, the former have won twice and lost once.

In terms of their overall head-to-head record, Ipswich have won on 22 occasions, Plymouth 12 and there have been 15 draws

About the Venue

With Portman Road now only staging League One football, it is a far cry from its time as a Premier League venue. Not to mention, it also previously staged an international friendly between England and Croatia.

With COVID-19 restrictions being lifted in England, it means there is no longer the need to show a Vaccine Passport before attending the ground. Which means, match tickets are the only item that is required to be produced at the time of writing.

Conclusion

When it comes to the League One odds for a top-six finish and subsequent entry to this season’s play-offs, Ipswich are currently priced at 14/1 (bet365) - a price that could shorten if they get a win at the weekend.

While when it comes to automatic promotion odds in the same division, Plymouth are currently as long as 20/1 (SportNation) and if they fail to win on Saturday, that price will only get even longer.
