Ipswich Town vs Blackburn Rovers match preview

Two sides in the midst of contrasting recent spells of form are set to lock horns in a Championship clash at Portman Road this Saturday, September 23rd.

The matchup in question will see Ipswich Town act as hosts, in a meeting with Blackburn Rovers.

Beginning with the visitors, Blackburn have endured an altogether tough time of things of late.

Amid an ongoing battle for consistency, Jon Dahl Tomasson’s troops have been condemned to defeat in two of their last three, and three of their last five.

Most recently, in midweek, Rovers welcomed in-form Sunderland to Ewood Park.

And, when all was said and done, wastefulness in the final third proved costly, as Harry Leonard’s equaliser late in the first-half proved to be little more than a consolation in a 3-1 loss.

Safe to say, then, that upcoming opponents Ipswich Town will likely fancy their chances of adding ever further to the woes of Tomasson and co. later this afternoon.

This comes with the Blues, for their part, having enjoyed an altogether more productive time of things of late.

Continuing to prove themselves more than ready for the jump from League One to The Championship, Ipswich are currently sitting pretty in joint-2nd in the table.

Kieran McKenna’s side, all told, have emerged on the right side of the result in eight of their nine outings across all competitions in 2023/24.

The latest three-point haul came on Tuesday, when a trip to St. Mary’s to face Southampton saw a solitary strike on the part of Chelsea talent Omari Hutchinson prove decisive in a 1-0 result.

So, all of this considered, how do we at 101 envision Saturday’s action playing out at Portman Road?

Unsurprisingly, we are backing hosts Ipswich to ultimately emerge triumphant, at Blackburn’s expense.
