Ipswich Town vs West Bromwich Albion Prediction and Betting Tips | February 10th 2024


The EFL Championship returns with a fresh set of fixtures as Ipswich Town and West Bromwich Albion lock horns at the Portman Road Stadium on Saturday.

Having suffered a drop-off in form of late, Kieran McKenna’s men will head into the game looking to return to winning ways and move into the automatic promotion places.

Ipswich Town were left empty handed for the second consecutive game as they fell to a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Preston North End last Saturday.

This followed a shock 2-1 loss against National League outfit Maidstone United on January 27 which saw their FA Cup campaign come to an end in the fourth round.

Despite claiming just one win in their last eight Championship games, Ipswich currently sit fourth in the league table, two points behind second-placed Southampton.

West Bromwich Albion, meanwhile, returned to winning ways last time out as they edged out Birmingham City 1-0 at the Hawthorns.

Carlos Corberan’s side had lost their previous two outings, including a 2-0 defeat against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup fourth round on January 28.

West Brom are on course to secure a spot in the playoffs as they sit fifth in the Championship table, having picked up 48 points from their 29 matches so far.
