MATCH PREVIEW - IPSWICH TOWN (A)

18 February 2022

BURTON Albion will make the trip to East Anglia to take on Ipswich Town at Portman Road tomorrow afternoon (3pm kick-off).

FORM GUIDE

The Brewers travel to Ipswich off the back of an impressive 3-1 win over the in-form Bolton Wanderers. The victory ended Bolton’s seven game unbeaten streak while also ending Albion’s own run of three games without victory.

Ipswich come into this game with just one loss in their last six matches. Their last match ended in a stalemate as they were held to a 0-0 draw away to promotion chasing MK Dons.

 

HEAD 2 HEAD

Ipswich have enjoyed the majority of the points when the two sides have met in the past. In the nine meetings since Albion’s promotion to the EFL, the Brewers have won one and drawn one, with the other seven games going in favour of the tractor boys.

That Brewers victory came earlier this season, in a 2-1 win at the Pirelli Stadium. Albion took the lead early on through Joe Powell before Ipswich equalised only three minutes later. A late Lucas Akins penalty secured the victory for Burton in August of last year.
