Pre-game odds and win probability: Visitors are odds on favourites

  • HOME: 12/5 (3.40) – 29.4%
  • DRAW: 14/5 (3.80) – 26.3%
  • AWAY: 4/5 (1.80) – 55.6%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Blackburn were in the middle of a nine-game winless slump before the international break, so they probably welcomed the chance to pause and reset. Rovers remain one of the division’s relegation-threatened outfits and while they could do with picking up points on Friday, the bookmakers reckon they have only a 29.4% chance of bloodying Ipswich’s nose.

In contrast, Ipswich didn’t want the break to come following a searing run of eight wins in nine. The Tractor Boys are well over their mid-season blip and our football tips for Friday’s clash have backed them to pick up where they left off.

Ipswich won a topsy-turvy meeting with Blackburn at Portman Road earlier in the campaign (4-3), though we have to jet back to 2019 to find the most recent encounter between the clubs before that.

Blackburn preview: Sigurdsson a significant absentee

Amor Sigurdsson, Joe Rankin-Costello, John Fleck and Hayden Carter are all in the treatment room at Blackburn while Harry Leonard is considered a doubt. Rovers are only three points above the Championship's drop zone.

Player to watch – Omari Hutchinson

It took him some time to settle, however, Omari Hutchinson is now starting to thrive at Ipswich and the 20-year-old scored twice in his last appearance for the title chasers against Sheffield Wednesday before the international break.

Loanee Hutchinson is a potential match winner

Hutchinson, who is on loan at Ipswich from Chelsea for the duration of the season, won the Championship’s Player of the Month Award for February, and his dynamic displays on the flank have helped to rekindle Town’s form.
