Prediction for Bristol City vs. Ipswich Town

This season, the Robins have been unpredictable, with three losses and two wins in their previous five league games. They are unbeaten at home against the visitors since 2013 and should be able to put on a good performance in this match.

Head coach Nigel Pearson will be without Ayman Benarous, Rob Atkinson, Zak Vyner, George Tanner, Nahki Wells, and Ross McCrorie, while Kal Naismith is uncertain with a calf injury.

Wes Burns and Lee Evans remain long-term absentees for head coach Kieran McKenna, who has no new absentees. Freddie Ladapo is expected to miss this game due to an Achilles injury.

Christian Walton and Axel Tuanzebe, who both played in closed-door friendlies over the international break, will face late fitness checks.

They are unbeaten on the road this season and have preserved three clean sheets in their past four outings. Despite having only one win in their last ten encounters with the hosts, we anticipate Ipswich to win comfortably given their present form and the hosts’ injury issue.

Bristol City is my pick.
