Rotherham vs Ipswich Prediction

In a highly anticipated Championship clash, Ipswich Town are set to face off against Rotherham United at the New York Stadium. The stakes are high, with Ipswich looking to secure a victory that could propel them to the top of the Championship table, while Rotherham are desperately seeking their second league win of the season to climb out of the danger zone.

Rotherham vs Ipswich Betting Tips

Ipswich’s Impressive Form

The majority of Ipswich supporters may have anticipated a dip in their team’s form, especially after narrowly missing out on promotion back to the Championship earlier this year. However, Ipswich have defied expectations, displaying commendable performance with six wins and one draw in all competitions following the first international break of the season.

Ipswich’s recent run of form has been nothing short of exceptional. Even though three of their last four Championship fixtures were hosted at Portman Road, they still managed to clinch crucial victories against strong opponents like Blackburn Rovers, Hull City, and Preston North End. During this impressive run, they netted a total of 10 goals, which has catapulted Ipswich to the top of the Championship’s attacking charts.

But it’s not all smooth sailing for Ipswich. They recognise the need for improvement in their away form, as they had a 1-1 draw at Huddersfield Town on September 30. Despite noteworthy 1-0 wins at Sheffield Wednesday and Southampton, they are aware that consistency on the road is vital to their campaign.

Rotherham’s Struggle

On the other hand, Rotherham United find themselves in a challenging position, four points adrift of safety. Rotherham have only managed a single league win this season, which underscores their struggle. Their home form will be crucial in their battle to climb the standings.

Five of their meagre six points this season have been earned on home turf, with their solitary win coming against Norwich City. Since that victory, Rotherham have failed to secure a win in any of their last six league fixtures, losing four times and failing to score more than one goal in any match.

However, Rotherham did manage to enter the international break on a positive note, securing a valuable 1-1 draw at Southampton. This result has at least kept them in proximity to 21st place, giving them hope in their fight for survival.

Predicted Lineups

For Rotherham, Fred Onyedinma, who had been dealing with calf issues, is expected to feature in the starting lineup. Jordan Hugill, who scored the equalizer at St Mary’s, is likely to return to the team, with Sam Nombe potentially taking a spot on the substitutes’ bench. Dexter Lembikisa, who represented Jamaica recently, is expected to play at right-back.

Ipswich Town, however, face an injury concern with Wes Burns, who suffered an injury while playing for Wales against Gibraltar. Kayden Jackson is on standby to replace him on the right flank, thanks to his goal against Preston in the previous match. The rest of the lineup may remain unchanged, with Omari Hutchinson waiting patiently for more game time in the league.

Match Prediction

In this crucial clash, we predict Ipswich Town will maintain their impressive form and secure a 2-0 victory over Rotherham United. Despite the break for international fixtures, Ipswich’s attacking prowess and consistency make them strong contenders.
