Wolverhampton Wanderers were never really expected to set the Championship alight this season but they were universally expected to finish in the top half of the table at the very least. Instead Paul Lambert’s men have stumbled along somewhat aimlessly and now find themselves staring into the abyss that is relegation to League One.
Wolves have suffered five successive Championship defeats heading into tonight’s clash in East Anglia and this has resulted in them moving ever closer to the bottom three. Will their situation improve tonight? We doubt it.
Ipswich Town have been something of a mixed bag this season and this is reflected in their lowly league position. The Tractorboys sit fifteenth in the Championship as things stand and whilst they are relatively safe from the spectre of relegation, they aren’t likely to cause any threat to the sides in the play-offs. A mid-table finish lies in wait for Mick McCarthy’s men and they can consolidate their position with what should prove to be a relatively easy three points this evening.
At odds of 17/10, an Ipswich Town victory represents remarkable value for money. Visitors Wolves have been pretty abysmal of late and whilst they have picked up a couple of unlikely away wins over recent months, we really don’t expect them to come away with anything for their troubles tonight. Ipswich Town have suffered just a single defeat at Portman Road since mid-November and they look set to collect another valuable three points in front of their home fans tonight.
