The game between Ipswich Town and Bristol City has been postponed.

Bristol City will play host to second-place Ipswich Town in the EFL Championship on Wednesday at the Ashton Gate.

The hosts are in eighth place in the league standings and resumed their league campaign following the international break with a 1-0 home win over Coventry City on Saturday.

Robert Dickie, who has made seven appearances for them this season, opened his goalscoring account for the club, scoring the match-winner in the 45th minute.

The visitors, second in the league table, saw their game against Rotherham postponed after Storm Babet caused flooding near the New York Stadium, which is situated beside the River Don.

League leaders Leicester City continued their winning run last week and extended their lead at the top over Ipswich to five points. The visitors have a game in hand and will look to keep pace with the Foxes.

Bristol City vs Ipswich Town Prediction

The Robins have been a bit inconsistent this term, with three defeats and two wins in their last five league games. At home, they have been unbeaten against the visitors since 2013 and should be able to produce a good performance in this match.

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

The Tractor Boys head into the match in great form and, with their game against Rotherham canceled last week, they’ll be pumped up to play in this match. They have won eight of their last nine games in all competitions and are strong favorites.

Wes Burns and Lee Evans are still sidelined as long-term absences for head coach Kieran McKenna. Freddie Ladapo has an Achilles injury and is expected to sit this one out.

Christian Walton and center-half Axel Tuanzebe will face late fitness tests as they played in closed-door friendlies during the international break.

They have an unbeaten away record this season and have kept clean sheets in three of their last four away games. Though they have just one win in their last 10 meetings against the hosts, considering their current form and an injury crisis for the hosts, we expect Ipswich to record a comfortable win.

Ipswich Town 1-2 Bristol City is the prediction.
