Ipswich to win whilst conceding

Ipswich have done fairly well recently; they are coming off a win, and have no losses in their last five games, with three wins and two draws. In contrast, Colchester United have struggled to win games recently; they are winless in their last five games, with three draws and two losses. Also, Ipswich tend to do well when they meet Colchester; they have won three of the last five meetings between these two, with a draw and a loss. All things considered, Ipswich should win this match; however, considering Ipswich have no clean sheets in their last four games, they should concede as well.

We will see goals

Both teams have scored and conceded goals regularly over the past few weeks. Ipswich found the net in all of their last 11 games; they kept just one clean sheet in their last seven games. In like manner, Colchester scored in nine of their last 10 games; they have seen their defence breached in all of their last six games. Because of these teams' tendency to score and concede goals, most of their games have been on the high-scoring side; seven of Ipswich's last nine, and four of Colchester's last six games went above the 2.5 goal line. For these reasons, we believe that these teams will score at least three goals between them.

A local League Cup clash to spice up the early season

Ipswich Town and Colchester United are only separated by a few miles and, right now, there are several former Tractor Boys playing their trade for the U's, which adds an interesting element to this match. A fair few of those will likely feature back at their old stomping ground but they're likely to have their work cut out for a result with the hosts a better side.

Ipswich come into this season with a wave of positivity behind them but it is undeniable that their priority is making it out of League One. That could see them take their eye off the ball in this game, however, with changes to their team likely it gives others a chance to stake a claim for the upcoming matches.

Ipswich Town Predicted lineup – Hladky, Burgess, Ndaba, Woolfenden, Penney, Vincent-Young, Harper, Ball, Humphries, Edwards, John-Jules

Colchester United fans will make the short trip down the A12 hoping to see their side beat a side that plays a division higher. In that team will be a few faces familiar to the home support as well with more than just a handful of former Town players making the minor relocation in the last few years. Will that give them the needed extra percent or two to win?

Colchester United Predicted lineup – Hornby, Tchamadeu, Chambers, Eastman, Clampin, Judge, Skuse, Hannant, Chilvers, Akinde, Sears
