After dropping two points in injury time last Sunday, and further extending their recent winless run over rivals Norwich, Ipswich entertain Cardiff as a wounded side. Under Neil Warnock, the Bluebirds have been ruthless enough to exploit any emotional hurt being suffered by opposition teams, giving them a real advantage for this one.
Ipswich may lead the all-time H2H 21-15 (with 14 draws) but recent times have been good to Cardiff, as the Welsh club have tasted defeat to Ipswich just once in their last nine meetings with the Tractor Boys.
If Cardiff are leading at half-time, you can expect them to win at the final whistle. They have led at the break 11 times this season – and have won 11 times!
Victory for Cardiff in this match would represent the Bluebirds’ first league double over Ipswich since the sides occupied Division Three South in 1946/47.
This game should be an absolute certainty for both teams to score, as five of the last seven meetings have seen both teams score. In contrast, Cardiff now have 14 clean sheets in 32 games this season – the third-highest tally in the league.
Players to watch: With his side unbeaten in four, Cardiff boss Neil Warnock has reserved particular praise for defender and captain Sean Morrison for galvanising the backline, stating: “He’s been criticised in the past but I think he’s been fantastic in his own box in recent weeks.”
Ipswich’s Luke Chambers netted his first goal of the season in the 1-1 derby draw with Norwich. He has won 100% of his take-ons this season.
Stat attack: Ipswich games have generally been low scoring of late, with the Suffolk club’s last six producing less than 2.5 goals.
No player has scored a hat-trick in this fixture this century, although Cardiff’s Kenneth Zohore netted a brace against Ipswich in March 2017.
