Blackburn vs Ipswich Match Preview
Blackburn host rock-bottomed Ipswich for their Matchday 28 clash looking for their third Championship win in a row, just days after seeing Newcastle turn a thrilling FA Cup clash their way at Ewood Park (2-4) with extra-time goals from Joselu and Ayoze Perez.
Rovers have beaten West Brom (2-1) and Millwall (0-2) along the way, where Tony Mowbray surely has a lot to be happy with as his men show off their character early in 2019. They will now want to join the top 6 chase and building on the streak should prove a crucial task in such attempts.
Ipswich have, on the other hand, just ended their losing streak with a narrow 1-0 win over similarly struggling Rotherham – where a single goal from William Keane proved enough for all three points. They will now want to build on the success but it feels they’re in for more of a task this time around.
Blues have seen more convincing losses to QPR (3-0), Middlesbrough (2-0), Millwall (2-3), as well as an FA Cup exit in the hands of League One rivals Accrington Stanley (1-0) beforehand. Their struggles to score goals on the road have been overwhelming and we don’t see Paul Lambert find the cure just yet.
We will thus back Blackburn to return to the winning ways once again and sticking with it at 4/5 with Black Type feels like great value, seeing the rivals’ away woes – where they earned just one win and two draws in 15 trips across competitions this term.
We don’t feel we’ll see many goals, though, and we’ll also back Under 2.5 Goals FT at 8/11 with Coral in hope Ipswich will not get on the scoresheet but still pose a serious challenge at Ewood Park on the day.
